Shooting Your Bow: "Train Heavier, Hunt Lighter'

Nicole McClain Shooting the Mathews Jewel
'Train heavier, hunt lighter.' During 'sight-in season,' I recommend increasing the draw weight of your bow. For example, master shooting on-target at 65 lbs. in the off-season. About two weeks before opening day, lower your draw weight to 60 lbs. and hit the range again to confirm accuracy at the lower weight. It will not only help you to draw smoothly and execute with better form and precision, but make it easier to draw when that beauty buck that crosses your hairs.
