Buck and Doe’s Mercantile offers compound bows, recurve bows and crossbows for hunting, target, or pleasure. There are several factors to consider, and the experts at Buck and Doe’s Mercantile can help you with every decision along the way. The bow that is the right choice for you will draw efficiently, operate smoothly, and be an extension of your body.
Our archery experts at our archery pro shop can assist you to:
- Determine your dominant eye – should you be shooting left or right-handed.
- Determine your draw length – Knowing your draw length will ultimately determine your match to a proper draw-length bow. Keep in mind that using a release aid can add ½ to 1 inch to your draw length.
- Determine an anchor point that works for you. Consistency is the key to success.
- Determine your draw weight – It’s important to pick a weight that you can draw comfortably under less than ideal conditions.
- Determine let-off – Let-off is the difference between the maximum weight required to pull the bow to full draw and how much weight you hold at full draw. This is an often-overlooked area that makes a difference in comfort and accuracy by being able to hold steady on a target.
