Every aspect of your bowhunting plan should center on getting a "perfect" shot. While absolute perfection is rare, you can come close by striving for perfection, which involves:

  • Properly placing the elevated stand or ground blind
  • Staying downwind when possible
  • Using good camouflage and concealment techniques
  • Using covering, attractant scent, and game calls effectively
  • Limiting your movements
  • Shooting within your effective range
  • Applying everything you've learned in previous hunting experiences

Shot Selection Is Key

Good shot selection helps the bowhunter place an arrow in the vital organs. Shot selection includes choosing the proper shot angle, shooting within an effective range, and properly timing the shot.
