Interested in Bow Hunting?

Are you interested in hunting or already a rifle hunter and thought to yourself that you really would like to try hunting with a bow? That was the scenario for me. I started hunting with a rifle and really enjoyed everything about it. Then I decided that archery looked pretty interesting and I had always heard that it is more “challenging” than hunting with a gun. But how do you get into archery when you might not know anything about it or know anyone who can help you. What do you do? I want to try to help out with that.

This is how I approached getting into hunting with a bow. First, a little bit about me…I took up hunting, rifle hunting, while I was dating someone. We broke up but I wanted to keep hunting. No one in my family hunts so I’ve kind of been on my own figuring things out bit by bit. It can be done!! I decided I wanted to give archery a try. My first step was to attend different Women it the Outdoor events with the National Wild Turkey Federation and Becoming an Outdoors Woman program. I gained knowledge from those programs and decided from there that I really did enjoy archery and wanted to try to hunt with a bow and arrow. However those programs only take you so far and you have to move on from there. That’s where groups like Babes Bullets and Broadheads comes in so keep that in mind!!

I had some knowledge and limited experience so I wanted to purchase my own bow. But there are so many bows out there…what do you get? How do I know what will work, what will fit, what you’ll like? The best thing you can do is just go to an archery shop and try all of the different bows that are available. Every bow is different and it is all personal preference. Have the technicians at the archery shop measure your drawl length. Figure out what weight you can pull back. They will do all of those thing for you. Ask. Shoot all the bows you possibly can. Have a price range in mind. Bows can get very expensive. For me…I started out with a very basic “starter” bow that did not cost a lot of money. My thoughts were that I didn’t want to spend a lot of money and then face the possibility that maybe I don’t like archery hunting after all. I hunted with that first bow for a few years. Even thought it was not a very expensive bow I was able to still harvested a deer. From there I decided I wanted to upgrade. At that point when I went back to an archery shop to buy another bow I knew what I wanted, knew the poundage I could draw my bow back with, knew my drawl length and basically sounded like a pro when I walked into the shop.

Besides all of that information the best advice I can give you is to practice practice practice!!! The more you pull a bow back the more comfortable you get with it, the more you gain the strength you need to shoot it and the more awesome you become. Go to 3D archery shoots in the summer time. There is a website ( that will tell you where 3D archery shoots are in your area. 3D shoots help you judge distance and help you determine what distance you can be confident shooting your bow at. Shoot in indoor archery leagues in the winter to help with consistency. Just practice in your backyard if you can, but practice. The only other thing you need in patience. It can take some time for an animal to come close enough for that perfect archery shot. And then when it is close enough you might have to wait for the angle to be right. Just be patient.

Archery season can be the best time of year to hunt. It’s so quiet and peaceful. And if it is something that you think you might have an interest in it can become addicting. For me…archery is my passion and rifle is my “back up” 🙂

BBB Field Staff – Simply The Best!

Our staff are not just pretty ladies who wear our logo and look good in photos.  The ladies on our field staff are all outstanding women who are dedicated to our mission to encourage women and youth in the outdoors. There are many reasons these ladies feel passionate about what we do at BBB.  Most of all, we are true hunters and outdoor enthusiast.   We live it every day all year long.  We don’t measure success by the size of our trophies, we measure success in the memories we make afield with family and friends.  Each year the ladies of BBB participate in all kinds of outdoor events in their home states.  We mentor youth and take our own kids hunting.  Some of us give back by teaching seminars at many of the large sporting goods retailers, teaching NRA shooting classes, volunteering to manage 3D bow shoots and participating in youth shoots, and much more.  We call ourselves The Sisterhood of the Outdoors for a reason.  These ladies are a always there for one another to encourage each other and share in the joys of our hunting journeys.  When we get a chance to hold a staff hunt we become like family; sisters, hence the sisterhood. Most of our staff have been on one or more of our hunting trips with outfitters.  We make sure there is a staff member to host each of our hunts to ensure our guest have a great time.  These staff members are there for our guest from start to finish and will mentor new hunters from shooting to gutting and game prep.  You won’t be let down by these ladies, they are some of the hardest working, fun loving hunters you will ever meet.  We have very high standards at BBB for our field staff.  We do it because it means something to us to give back to others, not because of what BBB may give us in return.  The return is seeing new hunters find success and joy in doing what we love most- HUNTING!  We are THE SISTERHOOD OF THE OUTDOORS.
