The Wind can wreak havoc on the best of Bow Hunters. It’s like kryptonite for the perfect shot. Wind plays a key role for any avid shooter taking it downrange whether it be with a copper casing or a bolt from your Barnett. The thrill of setting up the shot also comes with some skill and practice. The wind plays a large role in taking meat home or looking into an empty refrigerator in the off-season.
I have many times sat in a tree wondering if my crossbow would be able to handle the wind. If the perfect shot presents itself, will my arrow fly straight? Taking a range of 30+ yards and then trying to map out your shot is difficult and every bowhunter knows timing and patience are crucial. One miscalculation and of chances of bagging some dear jerky are gone.
Below find a reader and Contributor account of his hunt with a crossbow this past weekend. I can vouch for the heavy wind as I do not live far from him. His name is Dave Walker! He is a great friend, a good family man, and the best mentor! Read his story!
Wow! What a story! I remember after the hunt and getting a text from Dave…it was just as exciting for me! As
hunters know, sometimes it’s being at the right place at the right time. Well, It’s also patience and having great equipment to act on the opportunities that present. Dave did just that this weekend. Strong work Dave! Keep the stories coming!
