Episode 1: The X-Press Bow Press

Having the right bow tuning equipment can make all the difference in the world for the serious bowhunter. If you have the right tool, it can often turn a laborious, time consuming job into a few quick and easy steps. Mike Carney and Tony Peterson show you one of their favorite items to keep around the bow shop, the X-Press bow press. Check out this segment from Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk for more information.

Episode 6: Know Thy Fletchings

Serious — and successful — bowhunters take advantage of every variable when it comes to their equipment. One of the most important variables is arrow flight, which is influenced by the quality of fletchings used. For a detailed look at how to make the most of your fletchings, check out this edition of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk.

Episode 7: Recurve Technology

It may seem like most of the attention in the bowhunting community is dedicated to high-dollar compound bows, but that isn\'t entirely true. New technologies — like carbon weave limbs — have also been added to recurve bows, giving a traditional bow a bold new take. Check out this edition of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk.

Episode 4: 3D Target Training

As any bowhunter can tell you, practice is essential. It\'s also important to find creative ways to hone your skills, which is why 3D targets come in so handy. They offer an alternative, interesting way to practice that keeps you focused and alert. Mike Carney and Tony Peterson offer an inside look at 3D targets and their proper use in this segment of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk.

Episode 8: Micro Diameter Arrows

In the last 25 years, arrows have improved greatly. One of the biggest leaps in arrow technology came from the ultra-thin diameter arrows from Easton. The company is at it again, releasing ultra-micro daimeter arrows in their Deep Six lineup. This gives bowhunters deeper arrow penetration and less disturbance in flight from wind. Check out more in this segment of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk.

Episode 11: Choosing the Right Broadhead

One of the privileges of hunting in North America is the sheer number of species a bowhunter has to choose from. The increase in options also creates a dilemma for bowhunters, however, who must choose the right broadhead for the right hunt. Mike Carney and Tony Peterson walk you through species-specific broadhead selection in this segment of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk.

Episode 12: Training Your Release

As archers, most of us struggle with accuracy at one time or another in our bowhunting career. A lot of it comes down to your release, which can be improved in a few simple ways. One of the easiest ways to solve accuracy problems is to select the right release. Mike Carney and Tony Peterson give a few great options in this segment of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk.

Episode 13: Adjustable Sights

For hunters looking to declutter their sight picture, a single- or multiple-pin adjustable sight could be the way to go. Not only does it reduce the number of distractions in your sight picture, it also simplifies your shot process as a whole. A rear mounted dial allows you to adjust for yardage while your release is hooked to the string, making the adjustable sight a must-have for many bowhunters. Check out more in this segment of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk.

Episode 14: Choosing a Peep Sight

No two peep sights are created equal, which makes it essential for every bowhunter to know what they\'re looking for in a sight. Mike Carney and Tony Peterson walk you through the differences in peep sights, helping you to decide what\'s right for your hunting needs. Check out this segment of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk for more on peep sight selection.

Episode 3: Knowing Your FOC

FOC, or front of center, is vital to proper arrow flight, but many bowhunters don\'t know what it is, or how much of it is needed. Tony Peterson and Mike Carney walk you through the process of determining your arrow\'s FOC and making adjustments based on custom added broadheads and fletchings. Check out this segment of Bowhunter TV\'s Tech Talk for more on FOC.
