I thought I would start off the 2013 deer season with a couple of very easy bowhunting tips. The two tips require no additional setup and you should be able to implement my suggestions in a matter of minutes. I also believe following these tips will make you a more confident and more successful hunter.
1 – Switch to Expandable Broadheads
If you have not tried or are not shooting expandable broadheads then I encourage you to give them a shot. Screwing in a big expandable should fly just like a field tip. Most expandable heads give much better entry and exit wounds which result in better blood trails. I have had good success with Grim Reaper Broadheads and a full review can be found here -> Grim Reaper
2 – Shoot Lighted Nocks
Not seeing the arrow hit the deer is a huge problem. All bowhunters love to hear the arrow hit the deer but we NEED To SEE IT. A lighted nock acts like a tracer and will give the bowhunter a much better idea of how good the shot actually was. Take a look at this Nockturnal Lighted Nocks Review video and then check out the Nockturnal Lighted Nocks review @ DeerPros.com
Again, the two bowhunting tips above should cause no changes to your bowhunting setup. No sight or rest adjustments should be made. I really believe a confident hunter is more successful and making these changes has really helped me
