Seasoned archers realize shooting their bow regularly is only part of the equation in becoming a successful hunter. The other, and perhaps more weighty aspect is continual self-education in the art and craft of harvesting game with a bow and arrow. Hence, the place of importance the Bowhunters' Digest has earned on every serious archery hunters' bookshelf.
The go-to reference (now in its sixth edition) is built off Patrick Metin's 36-years experience bowhunting, giving archers an advanced course in the discipline. From understanding deer rubs to locating whitetails on public lands to deciphering buck and doe scents, readers will come away more knowledgeable and effective hunters. The tips and tactics have even kept up with the changing face of hunting, giving key insight to new opportunities, such as suburban whitetails and crossbow hunts. And the important fundamentals of the sport are highlighted with articles on the essential techniques of becoming a more accurate and proficient archer.
The Bowhunters' Digest is also the pennywise archer's most vital resource. With in-depth gear reviews and recommendations, hunters get a solid grasp of what's available on the market and worth opening their wallets for. The volume also includes a comprehensive directory of all the new archery gear now available.
There is more than just the physical side to archery hunting. Make certain you're also mentally prepared for the next archery season with Bowhunters' Digest, 6th Edition.
