Bow Hunting in a Tree

Today’s Tip:  Hunting Tips

Specificity training is a term that means training your body to perform certain tasks under certain conditions.  For hunters, that means practicing the actual shots that you may be taking in the field.  This is especially important for bow hunters since so much of their success depends on the precise action of the body’s muscles and their agility when shooting from awkward positions.  While practicing at the target range is essential, it is equally important to practice shooting from where you might hunt, whether that be a tree stand, a ground blind, kneeling, standing, or laying down with your rifle on your day pack.  If you hunt from a ground blind, practice shooting while sitting down, this is particularly important for bow hunters.
