From the most trusted name in guns and ammunition comes this ultimate reference on bowhunting. The Shooter’s Bible Guide to Bowhunting (Skyhorse Publishing, August 2013) by Dr. Todd A. Kuhn offers everything you need to know about the sport and its gear, from its origin as a means of survival to modern gear.
Compound bows and crossbows have undergone an explosive rise in popularity in recent years, due in part, Dr. Kuhn explains, to complex socioeconomic, environmental, and biological factors. As expansive tracts of land vanish, many hunters can no longer pursue game with high-powered rifles. That, plus vast improvements in archery gear, has hunters flocking to compound bows and crossbows as alternatives.
In the Shooter’s Bible Guide to Bowhunting Dr. Kuhn examines all things bowhunting and archery. Topics covered include:
- Compound, recurve, and traditional bows
- Arrows and broadheads
- Sights and rests
- Releases and triggers
- Tree stands, blinds, decoys, and other popular gear
This comprehensive desk reference provides a never before seen look into the history and engineering of archery, theories and trends in game discipline, and, of course, an exhaustive catalog of archery equipment both new and traditional.
Shooter's Bible Guide to Bowhunting is available at amazon.com and in both Kindle and Nook editions. Prices start at $19.95.
