The archery movement in Alabama is real. It adds a whole new dimension to hunting, but it also has it’s advantages too: it’s stealthy and quiet.
The single most advantageous idea behind bow hunting is that it doesn’t make a booming sound like a rifle. More and more hunters are doing their doe management with bows instead of rifles simply because it puts less pressure on the deer. Deer associate the boom from a rifle with death, but what do they associate the whisper of a bow with…? Nothing, because they cannot hear it.
Not only is it quiet, but it also levels the playing field in a sense. How hard is it to sit in a tree with a rifle and harvest a deer? Not very difficult, but how about with a bow? It’s tough.
Being efficient with a bow takes dedication, diligence, and precision. You have to know the ins and outs of your weapon and deliver a precise shot while being stealthy as possible.
