They are quite simple in design, yet pack quite some power in their limbs. With the advancement in technology, longbows these days come in more streamlined and aerodynamic designs.

Our manufacturing technology has also enhanced the performance and durability of the bows, while keeping their true spirit intact.

Still, no matter how easy it is, bows can’t shoot itself. You need to have the right skills, know how, and resources so that you can use it to its maximum potential.

How To Choose Traditional Longbow For Hunting

Purpose Of The Bow

The purpose stands for what are you going to use the bow for. Whether it is for target practice, or hunting.

If you are a beginner and looking to get into archery, it is advised you first get a good grasp of archery form first before you start going to the woods to hunt some game.

The bows used for both the activities is not that different in functionality per say, but hunting bows are more powerful and more utilitarian compared to bows just for target shooting.

You can very well do target shooting with a hunting bow.

Any beginner or advanced bow will do if you want to go for target practice. However, for hunting, you need to ensure that you are using the right gear for the purpose.

Hunting bow has few requirements. First of all, its size, weight, and material. It should not to be too bulky and heavy, after all you’ll be lugging it around for long hours.

A massive bow can get tangled with the trees and branches, and heavier one will only become a burden in long run.

Material on the other hand should be sturdy and quality. It should not snap while you are in the middle of your hunting session.

The draw weight is a big consideration for a hunting bow. A hunting bow should have a draw weight on the higher side of the spectrum.

Many states and countries have restriction on bows below 40-pounds, some even have over 50-pounds limit. This is to ensure ethical kills and for the hunters’ safety.

Draw Weight

In simple terms, draw weight is the power of the bow.

 It is the weight you will feel on your fingers when the bow comes to 28-inch draw.

This 28-inch draw is the industry standard. So, if the draw weight of a bow is, say 45 pounds, you’ll feel your fingers are pulling 45 pounds when the bow will come to 28-inch draw.

When target practicing, you don’t need a very powerful bow. Your arrow only needs to penetrate the foam or cardboard of your bullseye, which doesn’t require much power.

On the other hand, when you’re hunting, your arrow often needs to go through the thick skin, fat tissue, and sometimes even the bone of your pray.

To ensure ethical kills and to protect archers, governments and regulatory bodies around the world have some guidelines regarding draw weight of a hunting bow. At least 40-pounds (or even 50-pounds in some cases) draw weight is required for a bow used for hunting.

Draw Length

It is the length measured from butt of the arrow to the riser of the bow when you are at full draw. Basically, how much do you pull back the string when you are at full draw.

Taller people, or people with longer arms have higher draw length. Shorter people, kids, and people with shorter arm span have lower draw length.

Draw length can be roughly measured by measuring your arm span from tip to tip, and then dividing it by 2.5.

Choosing the right draw length is important if you want to use the maximum potential of your bow. The bow delivers maximum power when your bow is adjusted for your draw length.

Bow Size

If you are going to use your bow for target practice, buying a bow that corresponds to size of the Olympic bows is your best option.

These bows are quite long. This ensures the best and optimized performance of the bow for your give draw length and draw weight.

A longer bow is also more forgiving and small errors by archer does not hampers their shots.

However, for hunting, it is ideal to choose a shorter bow in general so that you can avoid getting tangled with trees and bushes.

A larger bow is also not very convenient to use in cramped and not-so-ideal positions.

Stealth Elements

Hunting requires stealth, so that you do not alert the game in any way. Thus, having a gear that helps you stay stealthy is an important extra requirement.

Some of the elements of stealth that you may need to consider are camouflage gear, compactness, less distraction, and better after-shot management.

Issues like compactness and less distraction depend on your size of your bow, while camouflage is choosing the color scheme that blends with the environment you’ll be using for the hunt.

Better after-shot management depends on two aspects. First is stability of the bow, second is how silent the bow is.

If your bow is not silent enough, the prey will instantly move as soon as you release the arrow. Plus, it will ensure that you are not able to pull another arrow before the prey leaves your vicinity.

Bows for hunting are usually quite silent. However, for extra stealth, you can use silencing aids. These add-ons reduce the after shot vibrations.

Stability

While power is nice; how smooth it is to pull back, release and operate is one of the main criteria for long term shooting.

If you are going to use your bow for hunting, the chances are you’ll have to hold the fully drawn bow for more than a couple of seconds to get the best shot at your target.

stable and easy bow is an essential requirement for any compound bow, especially if you are going to use it for hunting.

Different people may have different preferences when it comes to comfort and handling of the bow. Certain designs and grips may suit some, while not the others.

Price

Needless to say, price is one of the biggest considerations for any buyer.

Bows are expensive. They can range from $50 to over $2000. But a decent longbow will set you back at least $100.

Even if you buy a well-balanced, accurate bow below this price, it may not be of good quality.

There are a lot of cheap and flimsy knockouts in the market. They look exactly the same as the real ones, and will perform at par for a couple of shots.

However, they are not durable enough to serve you long term. They might use plastic instead of all wooden or metal body for some parts to reduce the cost. Even if they won’t break, issues will start cropping up with prolonged use of cheap knockouts.

Longbow vs. Horsebow – Archery Comparison

Conclusion

The most important takeaway while buying a longbow for hunting is to buy something that fits you for your particular situation. More often than not, the “BEST” bow may not be the best fit for you.

While gear makes hell lot of a different, but it is only half of the equation to be a good archer. The other half is your form.

So, before you buy your gear, do your research well. Know what you are doing. And always remember your form.
