How to choose a good compound bow for beginners?

As ugly as it may sound, archery is one sport that’s rather intimidating to get into. To avoid getting disappointed later on in your hunt down the perfect shot-to-score ratio and accuracy; here are some tips when making a purchase decision:

A beginner’s arrows should shoot at least 300fps (feet per second). Anything slower than this will take more effort from you while shooting or drawing back an arrow which can lead to muscle fatigue quickly, so don’t buy anything over 350 FPS if starting! A fast-moving object usually has better velocity too, such kinds of things as crossbows would be ideal choices.

A bowhunter who is just opting into bow hunting also needs a lightweight compound bow. Go for units that weigh less than 4.25 pounds, as it’ll be easy to hold and aim the arrows without demanding much effort on your part. The Bear Archery Pledge Compound Bow includes everything you need to get started with archery practice: 3-Pin Sight called Mist; Whisker Biscuit (a small notch); Peep Sight (to help place targets.

How does the Bear Pledge compound Bow work?

This is another installment of the Bear Pledge blog, and this time we will be talking about the compound bow that the Bear Pledge leaves as a gift for his future partner.

I’ve seen many different iterations of this weapon online, and I’m sure some people have noticed how similar to real-life bows they are. For those who don’t know, a compound bow is a type of bow that uses a system of pulleys to bend the limbs and hold them in place while drawing. In addition, it features a system of cams on the ends, which move as the string moves back and provide additional force at release.

Compound bows have been around for many years now, so I wanted to ensure that my version was as accurate as possible. The Bear Pledge’s bow is based on a Mathews Mission Craze, but I had to increase the size of the cams, and people familiar with the bow might notice that the string also sits at an odd angle.

It is important to note because this is why the limbs will not touch each other even when it’s fully drawn. A real compound bow releases energy by having the string push directly on top without touching any part of the limb.

Let us now analyze how all these parts work together. First, the Bear Pledge draws the bow with his arms, pulling the string via the cam system. Next, it pulls back on the limbs, putting them out of a plane with each other. As it comes closer to release, a second cam creates an opposite rotation, bending the limbs back into place and squaring them up with each other again, thus storing energy for the arrow release.
