What are some Bow Hunting Safety Tips?
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 hunter's 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.
