Book Technical Bowhunting The Ultimate Guide to Shooting Performance by Joe Bell Description

The ultimate bowhunting book! Geared to the serious enthusiast. The new modern day authority.

You'll discover secrets the pros use to succeed, on the shooting line and in the bush. The author, Joe Bell has included advice from famous bowhunters and archers and with his own thoughts, produced an excellent guide.

Technical Bowhunting will change the way you think about shooting your bow, from choosing your equipment, setting up your gear, making tough shots in the field and dealing with target panic.

One of the most important factors contributing to archery success is form. The correct form is essential to consistent accuracy and is covered and once this basic step is mastered, you are over the hump and on your way. Without it, just like many other repetitive activities, your advantage and key to success is non-existent or very hard to achieve.

Bell breaks the shot down into 10 distinct steps, beginning with your stance and ending with the follow through. These steps may seem like a lot, but given all that happens in shooting and the detail involved, they are very informative and leave nothing to chance.

It delivers powerful advice, anecdotes and effective tips to help you unlock your skill and potential as an effective archer and bowhunter.

Bowhunting is a sport requiring constant growth. After reading Technical Bowhunting, you'll expand your knowledge to incredible heights, so you can reach your maximum potential as an archer and bowhunter.

No other guide matches the powerful advice on proper technique and equipment such as a bow's brace height and axle to axle length, to selecting a bow that is forgiving, as well as the true to life shooting and hunting experience found in Technical Bowhunting.

There are 35 detailed Tech Tips found within each chapter covering every aspect of bowhunting, ranging from short paragraphs to several pages, but each tip delivers a strong message to help you become a better archer.

The book is thorough in the treatment of bow tuning, arrow spine selection, fixed blade or mechanical broadhead choice, fletching arrows and why different bow grips have their place. Other topics include aiming, breathing, visualisation and back tension and a whole chapter by Chuck Adams on techniques for finger shooters.

As well, Bell explains the need for a positive mental attitude through a pre-shot checklist to help you gain confidence when it is critical, at the moment of truth. A chapter is devoted on how to keep your bow in tip-top condition with bow maintenance, something every archer should know.

If you want to progress in the challenging sports of archery and bowhunting, this book is inspiring and worthwhile - an awesome tool for achieving success.

This is what some people who bought the book said about Technical Bowhunting.

This is a very good book. You can tell the writer knows his subject and has learned his craft through trial and error. His approach was the humblest that I have ever read. With most books, writers relish in their knowledge. This writer you know he has knowledge without any boasts or bragging. He is very down to earth and has great communication with the reader. It is filled with practical information that will help you as a bowhunter and as an archer. He also credits those he has learned from, which speaks volumes. Part of the learning experience is learning from mentors of which he lists the names of his mentors which any bowhunter that reads any of the mainline bowhunting magazines will recognise. A great book that I would recommend to those who want practical knowledge of bowhunting and learning more about the weapon they use. Setups, arrows, arrow rests, etc. William "oldhunter" Pitts, Merril, Wisconsin, USA

This book covers it all and then some. From a novice to a 25 year bowhunter like myself, its full of great information that will help you in every facet. It is not a one time read. You will be going back to it often for tech tips.TGWH, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, USA

I just finished reading "Technical Bowhunting" after hearing about it for the last year. The only regret I have is NOT reading it sooner! It is a tremendous reference and educational piece that you will need to read again and again. From the correct helical, broadhead selection, FOC and tuning, it has it all. Not only does it have the author's input, but also that of many well known bowhunters such as Chuck Adams and Dr Randy Ulmer. I learned more than I could absorb in one reading and am looking various chapters over again this week. So many questions I have had over the years that I could never find straight answers for were answered after reading this book. I now have more confidence in my selections and the set-ups I choose. You won't regret buying this book! Dr. Eyad Yehyawi
