Tech Talk: How to Fix a Missed Bow Shot

Tech Talk: How to Fix a Missed Bow Shot

Nobody likes to miss a shot. Ever.

Sometimes missing a shot, however, is more than an exercise in frustration — it presents us with a valuable opportunity to learn what we did wrong. How and where you missed, and the conditions that contributed to your shooting around an animal can be invaluable information in determining just what went wrong.

Once you've identified the causes of the miss, you're one step closer to avoiding the same mistake during the next moment of truth.

Whether it's buck fever, a punchy release or you're hunting out of your range, our experts know how to help. Watch Mike Carney and Tony Peterson in this Tech Talk segment as they help dissect and discuss the how and why behind a miss, and what you can learn from it.
