Best of Bowhunter TV: Moment of Truth

No matter how much preparation goes into your bowhunting season, it often comes down to a single moment of truth — sometimes a split second when you must execute flawlessly in order to bag the trophy you've been chasing all year.

Because we know exactly what it's all about, we've compiled the very best of our Moment of Truth segments on Bowhunter TV. These are the best tips for you, the dedicated bowhunter, to help ensure your success this year. When one wrong decision can mean the difference between success and failure, there's no better place to turn than Curt Wells and the experts at BOWHUNTER. Check out the best Moment of Truth segments from the year, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 7: Sizing Up Black Bears

Few things are harder in the bowhunting world than judging black bears, and even veteran hunters make mistakes sizing them up. Even so, there are a handful of techniques than can help you bring down a monster this season. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 9: Bowfishing

All bowhunting should be fun, which is something we tend to forget as bowhunters. One of the great ways to rekindle your love for the outdoors — and the bow you hold in your hands — is to head out bowfishing. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 15: The Ultimate Elk Setup

Few things are more exciting than calling a bull elk into bow range. However, success depends on having the right setup. Once the calling starts, you need to be prepared, because an elk could be only seconds away. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 1: Making the Shot When Elk Hunting

The difference between those who kill elk and those who merely hunt them is often about what you do when a trophy is close. Successful bowhunters know how to make the shot happen. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 13: Serious Glassing

At one time or another, every bowhunter uses a set of optics to glass or scout terrain. But there's a difference between casually checking out a hillside and seriously glassing. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 11: Master Your Pre-Shot Routine

As bowhunters, we often spend months preparing for a single shot that can be derailed in a matter of seconds. For that reason, whether you're hunting from a blind or from the ground, a pre-shot routine is a must. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 17: The Art of Stalking

You may think stalking and sneaking are the same thing, but that simply isn't true. According to Bowhunter TV's Curt Wells, there are at least five different phases of sneaking you need to master if you want to get close enough for a trophy kill. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 3: The Art of Stealth

One of the most basic things we do as bowhunters is walk through the woods, but it's surprising how many of us have failed to master this skill. The goal is to move quietly and effectively, which starts with clothing that doesn't make a lot of noise when you're walking. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.

Episode 5: Mastering Turkey Tactics

When hunting turkeys, a ground blind is a huge benefit for managing scent. But that doesn't mean turkeys can't see you. This means you must pay attention to all the small details, including practicing on an anatomically correct turkey target. Check out this Moment of Truth, straight from Bowhunter TV.
