4 Things Bow Hunters Should be Doing in May

May isn’t normally a month that the dust that knocks much dust off the old bow. In fact, it may be buried deeper underArkansas bow hunting - bow hunting scouting waders, fishing poles, duck decoys and the like now more than ever. But that doesn’t mean it should be.

Here are four things bow hunters can be doing to prepare for the 2010 Arkansas bow season 2010 right now. It’ll be here before you know it.

Pulling back your bow while you watch TV – I like to be in front of the TV watching Erin Andrews on Dancing with the Stars just like the next guy, but that doesn’t mean I have to totally surrender my manhood. Why not grab your bow while you’re hunched over on the couch?

While my wife texts in her votes, I get out my Hoyt, strap on my release, and practice pulling my draw. It’s a great way to start strengthening your back muscles, and the perfect way to maintain that “in-season feel.” Not to mention it allows me to keep my man card.

Shooting your bow from your stand – If you’re out scouting from your stand, you might as well take along a decoy or target and practice your aim. When I first got into bow hunting, this was one of the biggest mistakes I made. That is, shooting from flat ground across a flat plane is a lot easier than shooting at an angle 30 feet up in a tree. I never take that fact for granted. Unless you feel it’s practical to climb and shoot from the roof of your home (disclaimer: that would be pretty stupid! Don’t do it!), dig out your climber from the garage, get elevated, and start shooting!
