December 15, 2006, Newsletter Issue #5: Archery Safety Tips for Bow Hunters

Tip of the Week

This is a simple archery safety list, but one archers need to take seriously.

Avoid arrows that are bent or have chips in them.Throw away damaged bow strings.
Watch for intruders who try to cross the range.
Be courteous to other archers on the target range. Bow hunters follow a second set of archery safety rules. They need to carry a laser that will measure distances. Misjudging distance by only five yards can put the hunterís life in danger. A wounded bear or wild boar is a dangerous animal. A string leech will prevent alerting an animal to your presence. The last rule is to wait. Do not approach a downed animal for twenty minutes. A blood trail does not mean the prey is laying dead 50 yards into the bush.
