Any decent archer knows that the sport is pretty in depth. In other words, there is a lot that can go wrong when it comes to shooting arrows. It really doesn't matter whether you use a crossbow or a compound; there are a lot of little aspects that need to be in tip top shape. Also, most will tell you that it is important to do everything possible in order to place the odds on your side. I mean really think about it, there are a ton of things that have to go right for things to click when you are hunting with a bow and arrow. I can name several right now off of the top of my head. So lets explore a few of them in order to get this point across. Take the pins for instance, either they can be off or loose or your bow could be off. Also, when removing arrows it is not too hard to end up bending one of them when you remove them from a target. Sometimes an arrow can get so buried in a regular archery target that it is really tough to remove it. So what happens is that hunters tend to pull in a line that is crooked or not completely straight. With the proper amount of force or pressure, this could potentially bend the arrow, which is not something that you want by the way. Also, if you are a hunter then you know that it is pretty hard to actually get the deer to come into bow range isn't it? I have had several deer come just within gun range and I could shoot them because I had a bow with me.

Today we are here to discuss one way to eliminate a few common problems and put more of the odds on the hunter's side. The idea to discuss here is the use of broadhead targets. For those of you that have never heard of one of these targets, then I will elaborate. A broad head target is an archery target that is meant to have arrows with broad heads attached to them. By doing this, hunters can see where their arrows are going to hit when they are actually hunting and when the shot actually counts. This extra bit of practice and knowledge should help hunters increase their success in the field. Those with experience may have learned this method from experience. Sometimes, a broadhead will shoot differently than a field point, which is something that I would rather know before I am about to draw back on a big buck.
