10 Things That Never Do When Hunting

Archery is a hard sport. It requires a lot of patience, focus, strength, accuracy and more. Bow hunting is much harder than just what one does in archery training, shooting distant targets and etc. as it requires a lot of training and focus for one to be able to master this skill. For better performance, here are top 10 archery habits that should be avoided: PSE Pete Shepley 5-Pin Compact Sight 1.    Lack of Concentration – This is one of the biggest reasons why archers or hunters shoot arrows inaccurately. Shoot an arrow like it’s the only arrow left. In other words, when shooting an arrow, one must devote as much focus into each shot as possible. This will positively affect or improve one’s accuracy and shooting form. 2.    Target Panic – This happens when a hunter is tired, frustrated or angry. One shouldn’t shoot when not in proper condition because negative shooting habits will be the only outcome of this. If the body or mind is not in good shape, one should immediately stop, rest and shoot arrows when the body and mind is ready for it. 3.    Over-analyzing – Thinking too much will make shooting habits worse. A hunter should shoot by instinct because trying to find out exact calculations for a shot will be a waste of time. A hunter should just do what he/she thinks is right. 4.    Wrong Shooting Technique/Form – Of course, when something is wrong, the outcome will surely be wrong. Without proper stance, aim and follow through, it will be difficult for a hunter to hit the target. 5.    Over-confidence – Sometimes, easy targets are also easy to miss. This happens when a hunter’s instinct is no longer being used. This actually happens a lot even to professionals. One must reflect on one’s own actions and focus or simply take a day off shooting. 6.    Sudden Movements – Wild animals are very mindful of their surroundings. Once they see unusual movements, they will always think that a threat is around. One should be very careful with their movements before taking a shot. 7.    Creating Noise – unless it’s a “call” for the animal, a hunter should be very quiet in hunting since wild animals have good hearing. Once they hear an unusual sound, they may be afraid and run off. 8.    Too much/Lack of Practice – Practice makes perfect. Lack or too much of it may result in to bad results. Everything must be in balance. A hunter should have enough practice and also enough rest to be in good hunting conditions. 9.    Impatience – This is similar to target panic. The cause of impatience could be lack of focus or anger or maybe just fatigue. One should regain patience and recollect oneself in order to perform better. 10.    Negative Thinking – If a hunter thinks negative, everything in his/her surroundings will surely be negative. If a hunter wants good results, thinking positive will always produce good results. Having proper training and a positive mind set will surely have good results. So if a hunter wants to improve their bow hunting skills, he/she should avoid the things listed above. Click to check out the popular bow hunting accessories on the market.
