I'd say that's the exact opposite of true. Bowhunters are absolutely fanatical about shot placement. True, they also care about FPS and GPP/FOC, but any bowhunter you talk to will tell you that accuracy and placement are paramount.I suppose it doesn't matter when it comes to hunting, as speed and brute force gets a higher priority to accuracy.
I agree, but that doesn't make this statement correct:Yes, but not as much as in competitive shooting where your goal is the size of a coin at 70 metres.
Compromises are made, mainly for reliability and the ability to traverse the woods - moving through the underbrush with a set of stabilizers would be comical and would scare off your intended prey quite reliably. This does not mean that "speed and force" are considered more important than accuracy.speed and brute force gets a higher priority to accuracy.
Yeah it's a bit quiet, haha. I don't usually talk archery unless I've bought something new and fancy, although I think I even forgot to post my newest longbow here. :lol: Shame!Even though I posted here in 2011, I completely forgot such a thread existed.
This weekend I'll visit a club and maybe even shoot some arrows.
Also, what is GPP? FOC?
