You'll need a lot of great archery equipment to hit targets with Robin Hood's success rate. First, for greatest accuracy at farther distances, you're going to need to know EXACTLY how far you are from your target. We have archery rangefinders that are specifically intended for use by archers. Some of these awesome rangefinders can even mount on your bow! But just knowing the distance isn't enough to hit the target. Just like with a rifle, you should have a scope on your bow. Our crossbow scopes have many of the same awesome features as our superb rifle scopes, from illuminated reticles to bullet drop compensators. Or, in this case, arrow drop compensators. If you combine the data from a range finder with this compensator you'll be splitting arrows at twice the distance Robin Hood could even hope to in no time!

Bow Types Explained
There are three different types of bows used for archery - compound bows, recurve bows, and long bows. The compound and the recurve bows are by far the most popular among shooters, with the compound bow taking the lead. The advantage that the compound system gives a hunter is the tremendous decrease in the amount of strength it is required to draw the string and hold for long periods of time. The compound bows use a pulley system and the limbs are generally more rigid, which makes them easy to draw. As compared to other bow types, the compound bows have more moving parts and therefore more points of failure. However, the difficulty of mastering other bows is often outweighed by compound bows' performance. Also, accessories and customization for compound bows is greater than that for long bows. Various bow sights are available at our store to help guide your arrows to the target with pinpoint accuracy. Items like the Trijicon AccuPin are great for precision bow shooting.
