2013 is upon us and archery season is approaching quickly. We find ourselves with just over a month to go in some states before we can chase spring bears and turkeys. With the season quickly coming we are all scrambling to get our gear tuned up and ready to go. Here are a few ideas to get you and your gear ready to go for the 2013 season. As we pull our bows out of the cases we should go over them to check for any rusting, splintering, or fraying of the strings. I also like to check out my fiber optic on my sight, if it is not in prime condition I would recommend replacing it. After you have gone through your bow it is time to move onto your arrows, checking knocks, fletchings, shafts, and inserts along with your broadheads. Make sure broadheads are sharp, and blades are not loose.
After this I like to start off shooting. The area that I have to shoot in at my house only allows me to go to 40 yards so I try and shoot at least 20 arrows every night at each distance from 10-40 yards. I like to set up my blind and practice real shooting situations that I might face when I am out in the woods. I hope these few tips can help a few of you that are new to the world of archery! Remember practice makes perfect!
