Game Sled and Archery: Tradition Meets Modern Day Technology

 

Game Sled and Archery: Tradition Meets Modern Day Technology

 by Troutski

When it comes to transporting deer, elk, moose and other large game from their habitat in a timely, easy manner, the burden on the hunter is large. And when it comes to the lone hunter staring at the same problem, the burden can become unbearable. Achieving the trophy is hard enough without having to kill back, knees and other muscles while trying to take it home.

 

The Game Sled product line from Hunting’s a Drag, Inc. is the solution. With a line that stems from the Classic Game Sled to the Safari Game Sled, no matter what the weight of the game being transported, everything is covered. Weighing Food plot extractiononly six pounds with the ability to haul 400+ pounds, the solo hunter can handle a Game Sled with ease. It’s no wonder that hunters across the nation have purchased a Game Sled in order to get ready for next season.

 

The bow hunter definitely needs the durability and strength of a Game Sled, considering they are alone in their hunt, saving the camaraderie for evenings around the campfire. Hunting is usually far easier with a partner, but bow hunting is the choice made by the ones who truly want to avoid crowds and face the challenges that hunting with a rifle doesn’t offer.

 

Experienced bow hunters are well aware that deer and elk seem to have an ingrained instinct for simply halting their movement just outside of bow range, or circling downwind before heading toward their caller. Two- and three-person tactics makes the process easier, but when it comes to bow hunting, going out solo is usually their favorite way to hunt.

 

Archery is a highly difficult skill to learn, and offers far less success than the rifle hunter who can easily shoot 600 yards or more. The bow hunter has to know how to stalk their prey, seeing as that their shots have to be done from 3 to 42 yards depending on the size of the game.

 

The ability of the hunter is all that can be relied upon to target the animal, factoring in everything from the bow strength to terrain to weather conditions. Most bows have a draw weight of 50 pounds-force or more, which allows the bow hunter to hunt all but the very largest game out there. And when it comes to equipment, crossbows and wooden bows are normally used to send wooden arrows with stone points sailing across the terrain.

 

Stalking game with patience is what the bow hunter is all about. Walking slowly, making sure their final approach is carefully planned, bow hunters will usually cover themselves in camo and stay upwind so their scent does not capture and warn the game.

 

Sometimes the process of ‘still hunting’ is used by a bow hunter, which is where they wait for game to come to them. Setting up near food, water, or trails, the bow hunter uses natural materials for cover.

 

There are a great deal of cultural differences when it comes to bow hunting. With different seasons and restrictions from those of firearm hunting, the ability to bow hunt differs from state to state. Whereas some areas of the world support bow hunting as a way to control animal numbers from overcrowding issues, there are other areas that still stand behind the fact that bow hunting is far more cruel than using a rifle.

 

Overseas, many countries use bow hunting as an accepted tool to maintain healthy habitats; yet when speaking about Germany, the United Kingdom and others, bow hunting is absolutely banned. For the U.S., bow hunting is regulated by the individual states.

 

Archery is an ancient, noble sport; a historical way of providing food for the family, as well as help the habitat thrive.

 

In 2013, the skills and techniques of bow hunting are just as difficult as they were back then. But at least the bow hunter can rely on modern day technology, like the innovative Game Sled that will never let them down!
