How to Balance Your Hunting Bow

Sure, it'd be great to achieve target-bow balance with your hunting bow -- dead center left to right and tipping forward to about 45 degrees -- but that's not practical, or necessary, for most hunting scenarios.

Here's Larry Wise's solution...

He offsets his stabilizer to the left to act as a counter-weight to his arrows and quiver. He gets a fairly well-balanced bow without having to hunt with a long, awkward stabilizer. However you decide to balance your bow, make sure to tune it and practice with it that way before the season starts.
