A ninja verses Usain Bolt

Todays bows are all about the speed freaks, some bows are pushing 370 fps. Impressive but I have always thought fast bow equllys a fast miss. I don’t think a fast bow can make you a better hunter, but a quiet one will.

A friend of mine Ron Eaton from Taggin Out Hunting was filming his wife and he has on film a deer reactin when the arrow touched a hair.He figured the reaction time was a fracration of a second, that is when the arrow touched his hair until he started to react!

Everything makes noise when energy is released, it is the law of physics, we can’t get away from that. What we can is try to make your bow as quiet as possibe. Here are some tips I found by either reading it, tips from my friends and stuff I found on my own.

Wax or Locktite all you accesories that you can. Metal on metal is a big part of the noise. Make sure to use removable Locktite or string wax on you bolts on your quiver, sight pin housing, your rest, etc… this gives a barrier between your bow and the accesory that is on your bow.

If you are a speed freak, make sure that you have a good combonation of grains to your arrow and the bow you shoot. If your arrow is too light the bow might blow up, it is almost like dry firing your bow because the energy that would’ve been absorbed from the arrow will be absorbed in your bow, that could be really bad news,very dangerous and costly. If you have a arrow that is to heavy you will slow it down.

Stealth verus Speed not much of a decision in my opinion. You want to be a ninja in the woods or Usain Bolt?
