Part 1 – An Introduction.
I need your help. But before we get to that, let me catch you up to speed.
I’ve always had a passion for the outdoors. Growing up I spent a lot of time fishing, camping, and just being in the woods. At age twelve, like most boys, I completed my firearm safety certificate course and finally got to begin hunting. Since then, I have chased after whitetail, grouse, ducks, and geese. And I’ve loved every minute of it. However, for the last decade there has been something I’ve wanted to begin, and that something is bowhunting.
And the time is now.
I am 31 years old, live in north central Minnesota, and finally have a bow.
This February, I was able to pull the trigger on purchasing a Mission Hype DT from our local archery shop, Beimert Outdoors. The guys were super knowledgable and a ton of help in choosing my bow, getting me set up, and sighted in at 20 yards. As soon as the snow melted, I was able to practice in my yard a handful of times. But that was almost two months ago and I haven’t shot since. See I am high school math teacher along with the varsity baseball coach, and to say the least, spring is a very busy time of the year. When I’m not at school or the ball field, spending that time with my family is an absolute must. Now summer is here, I’m excited for fall, and I know it is the practicing over the next few months that will ultimately help lead to a successful hunting season this fall.
This is where you come in.
Now I am an experienced whitetail hunter, but all of that is with a rifle. Bowhunting is a different beast. Throughout this series of posts, I will be chronicling my preparation for my first bow season and asking for your advice and tips.
So here it is, please comment below on the top three things you focus on when it comes to your shooting form.
I’m grabbing my bow this weekend to start shooting and can’t wait to hear what you all have to offer. Thanks a ton!
