Hunting With Archery Arrows
You love to shoot your bow, right? I know I can't get enough of this wonderful hobby/sport. I don't practice for hunting trips, or to compete in some cash prize event. I solely shoot my bow for my own pleasure. It's a great skill to have and it's something you can pass on to your children. Trust me; a lot of them love archery. You just have to show it to them. My father showed me when I was 14 years old, but you can certainly start as early as six or seven. Once they've learned proper form, safety and practice, they'll have the necessary knowledge to hone their skills over time. All you need to get started is a bow and archery arrow.
Most of the buddies I've had that enjoy archery use it mostly for hunting. They carry compound bows and they shoot aluminum
archery arrows. There's nothing wrong with this. However, there is a whole other side to the archer spectrum. There are long bows and recurves as well. These are more traditional bows, which date back hundreds of years. I prefer them over the contemporary compound bow. Also, as I'm sure you've seen in "Robin Hood," there are wooden arrows. The new-age aluminum archery arrow is not the be-all end-all to archery. I prefer wooden arrows by
far. Now, just to be clear, they might not hold up as well for you as aluminum arrows. Then again, there not as pricey
either. Much depends on what you're shooting at. I think wooden arrows are the perfect compliment to any long bow or recurve.
As far as I'm concerned, aluminum shafts are for the compound folks.
Making your own archery arrows is outstanding. It will not only provide you with great ammo, but it will offer you a sense of
pleasure knowing that you crafted them on your own. Thefootedshaft.com is a great place to begin this journey. This is where
I purchase all of my archery arrow parts and accessories. Here's an Idea of what you'll need; cedar shafts, knocks, field
points, fletchings, glue, cresting paint, and a tapering tool. Keep in mind that you'll also need a fletching tool to glue on
your fletchings. At first this may seem like a process, but it gets simply really quick. The satisfaction you'll have from
making your very own unique archery arrow is well worth the hassle.
