Video: Why You Should Practice Holding Full Draw

If you practice shooting your bow all spring and summer by casually flinging arrows at a target from 30, 40, and 50 yards, you should be full prepared to shoot a tight group into a 3D target by the fall.

But if you want to get yourself hunt-ready, you have to practice for hunting scenarios: sitting, kneeling, shooting quickly, and holding at full draw. The video from Ceaser Lake Outfitters is all the proof you need.

This moose hunter was able to keep his cool and make a good shot … but just barely. The best part of this clip has to be when the bowhunter, anticipating a charge, whispers: "Get your gun out, Joe."
