Pick A Spot, But Not Any Spot

Here's a trick you can use to make "picking a spot" on a deer very quick and easy.

by Luke Hartle

Bowhunting is not a complicated endeavor, and if you've put a fer deer in your freezer via the "mystical flight of the arrow," you already know that. But that means that you also should know how crucial a few specific elements of the hunt are to your success, namely picking a spot.

We've all heard the phrase "pick a hair" or my personal favorite, "aim small miss small." Those small mantras are simply a means to help us focus those vital seconds before the shot ... when every emotion we have is pulling us in a hundred different directions ... to remain calm and put that arrow exactly where it needs to go to make a quick, clean kill.

I've been doing this bowhunting thing long enough to have learned a few things from hunts that didn't go exactly as planned. And, unfortunately, on more than one occasion I've asked myself, "What the hell just happened" mere seconds after releasing an arrow into a deer and not been able to answer that simple question.

Check out the video above. It's my rendition of the "pick a spot" technique that has paid huge dividends for me. It's not a complicated technique, and you can make it work with any deer target that you already have.

My final suggestion is this: Pick your own personal mantra to recite in your head AFTER you come to full draw and BEFORE you release an arrow. This will force you to take a moment to focus, relax as much as possible and deliver a lethal arrow that will put venison in your freezer.
