Archery Hunting Equipment Basics

To get started with Archery Hunting you will need some essential equipment, outlined here.

Compound Bow - Obviously you need a bow for bow hunting. If you are already a member of an archery or bow hunting club, you will probably have had the chance to see and test different bows and you probably have a pretty good idea of what you're looking for. If you're not a member of a club, I highly recommend you join one right away! They are great resources and your success is much more likely with help from experienced hunters and archers.

CrossBow - Crossbows are becoming more and more popular among sport hunters for their ease of use and compact form. They make a great choice for hunters who might now have the ability to draw and hold a long bow or compound bow for the time it takes to line up the shot.

Bow Sights - When combined with a good rangefinder, bow sights are invaluable for making a great shot. Using the rangefinder, you can use landmarks like rocks and trees as target distance references and know exactly how far away your target will be when they come into your blind's area of control.

Arrows - You'll need the right arrows for the game you'll be hunting and that usually means an assortment of broadheads. As you progress in the sport, your supply of arrows will expand. It seems like you can never have too many arrows.

Clothing and Protective Gear - Because Archery Hunting with a Bow requires you to get closer to your game, good camo gear is essential. Be sure to get something with good range of motion for the movements required to draw and sight the bow.

Quiver - You will absolutely need some way to transport your supply of arrows. It is always better to have plenty of arrows on hand and not have to leave the blind to retrieve arrows until the day's hunt is over.

Blinds and/or Tree Stands - Bow Hunting from a blind or tree stand and bringing the game to you is a proven strategy and you'll need the right gear to do it.

Scent Blockers - Because you can't control the wind, you need a good scent blocker in case you can't always stay down wind from your target area.

Archery Hunting is a great outdoor sport and may your next hunt be successful!
