SHOOTER'S BIBLE GUIDE TO BOWHUNTING
Author: Todd A. Kuhn
Publisher: SKYHORSE, Aug 2013
The new authority on arrows, sights, releases, rests, bows, and crucial bowhunting gear. Offers everything you need to know about the sport and its gear, from its origin as a means of survival to modern gear. 100 color photos; 10.4x8 inches, 448 pgs.
From the most trusted name in guns and ammunition comes this ultimate reference on bowhunting.
Compound bows and crossbows have undergone an explosive rise in popularity in recent years, due in part, Dr. Todd A. Kuhn explains, to complex socioeconomic, environmental, and biological factors. As expansive tracts of land vanish, many hunters can no longer pursue game with high-powered rifles. That, plus vast improvements in archery gear, has hunters flocking to compound bows and crossbows as alternatives.
Dr. Kuhn examines all things bowhunting and archery. Topics covered include:
Compound, recurve, and traditional bows
Arrows and broadheads
Sights and rests
Releases and triggers
Tree stands, blinds, decoys, and other popular gear
This exhaustive desk reference provides a never before seen look into the history and engineering of archery, theories and trends in game discipline, and, of course, an exhaustive catalog of archery equipment both new and traditional.
