Beginner Bow Hunting Mistakes To Avoid
This is Huntin’ Land, the podcast for landowners and land hunters. If you like to stay up to date on hunting tactics, land management, land values, and land market dynamics, this is the podcast for you. In this episode, Joe, Butch, and Nick Williams discuss the most common beginner bow hunting mistakes they’ve made. Joe shares his tips on the best bow selection and accessories, while Butch speaks on archery fundamentals such as anchor points, target panic, dropping your bow arm, and using a safety harness. Nick then shares advice on hunting accessories such as broadheads; his advice is to practice like you hunt and have a plan for a potential dead deer. Butch talks about understanding animal anatomy and bringing that into your practice, reminding listeners to double-check their pin accuracy. Talking about stand placement, Butch suggests using trail cameras on food plots, and Joe offers his advice on finding trees dropping acorns or fruit and spotting deer “poop.” Lastly, they caution against moving too quickly when scouting and hunting.
As a landowner, it is important to know what your land is worth. You may find yourself asking the questions like, “how much is my land worth today,” “how much is my land worth per acre,” “how much is timberland worth,” “what is my farmland worth,” “how much is agricultural land worth,” and other such questions. Many factors go in to determining the value of land and seeking out the wisdom of experts is a great place to find the answers to your questions.
Each week, on the Huntin’ Land Podcast, we will bring in various experts to help provide answers to the important questions landowners have.
