we can, and must, save hunting

DARKNESS. If you research the internet for articles about the future of hunting you’ll end up depressed. Any attempt on my part to put a positive spin on this subject would actually contribute to the problem. Too many hunters tend to take a head-in-the-sand approach, hoping they can simply enjoy their own little outdoor world and let others do the same. That attitude has to change. The most telling indicator of impending trouble is a recent study by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service that found the number of hunters in the country has declined from 13.5 million to 11.5 million — in just the past five years! Total hunting expenditures — the money we spend on our passion — fell 29 percent from $36.3 billion to $25.6 billion. That’s a…

CAN’T THANK YOU ENOUGH, DWIGHT Dear Bowhunter , I just read Dwight Schuh’s Pure Bow-hunting in the March 2018 issue, where he announced it would be his last edition of that column. Although I completely understand and respect his decision, his Pure Bowhunting column will be greatly missed. Mr. Schuh living out his dreams has inspired a lot of my own dreams. Although I lack his wonderful ability to write those dreams and adventures down, I can most definitely relate. So, I want to personally thank Mr. Schuh for living out his dreams, and for sharing them with us! I will be praying for you, Dwight, and I wish you many more successful hunting seasons! Kenny, via e-mail Dear Bowhunter , I was saddened to read Dwight Schuh’s final Pure Bowhunting column in your March…

MAKE PLANS FOR YOUR DIY WESTERN HUNT HUNTING THE WESTERN STATES is on every hardcore bowhunters list of things to experience. Regardless of which species you plan to hunt, here are four DIY tips that will lead to success when hunting the West. 1) Use the best optics you can afford paired with a quality tripod. The country is huge, and it is essential that you rely on your optics to help search for game. Quality glass will improve your ability to locate animals. The combination of 10x42 binoculars and a spotting scope allows you to locate animals and evaluate if they’re worth the effort to pursue. A quality tripod is a must to stabilize your optics, allowing you to glass more effectively and for longer periods of time. 2) Wear quality clothing…

torque tuning

IN SCIENCE, research is the most highly regarded way to capture evidence about a topic. However, research reveals information about something at a certain point in time, or among a specific sample. Many times, these testing variables change, for whatever reason, and past research can often be refuted by future testing. So, research can’t always be taken as bottom-line truth. This same principle also applies to archery. A so-called “truth” tossed around two decades ago may not apply today, based on specific shooting equipment and advances in technology. The “overdraw” arrow rest is one of those past omens that was touted as bad medicine for shooting accuracy, based on previous laboratory testing. However, the advent of “torque tuning” defies this prior assessment. In fact, moving the arrow rest farther out from…

better shooting in the wind

As a bowhunter, sooner or later you’ll be faced with shooting in a stiff crosswind. Depending on the severity of the breeze, only you can decide if the shot is doable or not, based on your gear and experience. However, torque tuning can prove vital in such situations by helping you overcome the increased shooting torque naturally introduced by the wind. This is something I’ve noticed time and again while setting up shots in western landscapes, particularly when using a bow-mounted quiver. Even with a low-profile hood and handle-hugging design, a quiver filled with arrows and fletching tends to bounce in the wind, causing sometimes severe, inadvertent torque. In such instances, when a shot of a lifetime is on the line, it’s nice to know that with torque tuning you’ve got…

teaching an old dog new tricks

ADMITTEDLY, I’m a tad stubborn and generally resistant to change. These traits would make me very easy to shoot if I were an animal, as I am very much a creature of habit in many ways. When it comes to my traditional gear, I have long lived by the rule, “If it’s not broke, don’t try to fix it.” That attitude is sometimes tough in the hunting industry, where manufacturers often ask me to try some new whiz-bang gadget or gizmo to get my opinion. I work with many of the manufacturers whose products I have been using for years. I usually try new stuff out, and then ultimately go back to my tried-and-true gear. I try never to write or say anything negative about some of these products, regardless of…
