At the Ranch – Bowhunting Tip: Long Range Archery Practice

Tips for your Long Range Archery Practice

Shooting at long distances will no doubt make your shorter shots seem easier. When it comes to long-distance shooting, I recommend practicing shooting at least 50 yards out. That way when you come into realistic shooting distances for actual bowhunting, which are hopefully in the 20-30 yard range, they’ll seem that much easier.

Another reason for practicing at longer ranges is that it will expose small flaws in your shooting form. A little tweak or just a slight pull of the bow will result in a much worse shot. You can pick up on little mistakes much easier when shooting at long distances. Overall, by practicing at distances longer than you might ever actually shoot a deer, you’ll become a better shot for those more realistic shooting distances.
