Things to Consider when Investing in a Compound Bow
You may be searching for a bow because you want to roam the trails in the archery fields, scout the woods or even consider mastering the bulls-eye and ready to get yourself deeper. In the same manner, you may be the type who is tired of the first set of wheels which you bought in a hurry thinking that any bow is good to go. In a case you fall under the category, you would need to take your time to learn more about compound archery.
Terminologies such as stabilizers, limbs, cams, and wheels may overwhelm you and may make you think that archery is one complex field you should not try. One can have a very easy time choosing the right hunting and shooting tools the moment he or she knows what to look for. One would need to start by noting that archery needs tends to be custom for every individual based on several aspects.
The first thing you would need to determine if the eye dominance which is also known as the ocular dominance. Ocular dominance simple means that the brain tends to prefer one eye over the other when it comes to the brain input. The brain is made in such a way that it tends to assume one of the eyes to be more correct than the other. One would also need to note that the dominant eye tends to be on the same side with the dominant hand. One would need to note that the hand dominance does not automatically qualify the eye dominance. In a case where you are not sure of where to start, you should consider testing your eye dominance in three simple steps.
One would basically need to make a small opening using the hands, between the thumb of one hand and the fingers of the other. Opening the two eyes, you would need to trace something small such as a doorknob. One would need to then close one eye and ensure that the hands nor the head does not change position. In a case where you cannot close one of your eyes by blinking, you would consider having someone closing it for you. One would easily note that the doorknob stays in place when one is using the two eyes, one of the eyes but shifts position when he or she is using the other. In a case where you open both eyes and also move on to open of the eyes and the doorknob remains, you would need to know that the open eye is the dominant one.
You would need to consider your draw length which most archery stores can help you get it right. Among other critical aspects you would need to consider includes the draw weight and the axle length.
