Tried that one time a couple years ago. Got the dogs to basically stop a hog we were hunting and thought it'd be awesome if I could jump on it's back to get it. Nothing about this worked out well. My balls were in unbelievable pain and I thought I broke a rib. Hogs are strong.

On topic, Please, use a firearm. I've heard too many horror stories on animals suffering and dying a terrible death because of bow hunting.

Use a bow to hunt targets, a shotgun to hunt animals, it's quicker for the animal than having a single thin arrow stuck in your body. Unless you have a 100% aim.

I love archery hunting! Very challening indeed, I am a left hander though so I had a hell of a time finding the right bow, I got a pretty decent PSE Compound bow, its been great, so much fun to shoot and site-in. Though 10 bucks a pop an arrow seems to be a bit pricey,

Your best bet in my opinion would just to go to a sporting good store that will let you test out things preferably one with a shooting range, they will do the measurements for you

It's great that you feel strongly about killing animals quickly and efficiently, but this post is a little misguided. With practice, patience, and good judgment it is not difficult to kill an animal with a bow just as quickly as you could with a firearm.

Sure, a bow has limited range but that's what makes it so exciting and rewarding when you get an animal you're hunting in bow range. Killing something is a bonus. Being in the woods up close to wildlife is the real thrill.

I love archery as well, not to mention you have to pay attention to the wind, have tons more patience, and be stealthy. Tons more skill involved.

Why are there two hunting threads on the front page?

We should bring back the gladiator pit and put TS with the bow against TS with the 120 year old guns.

Then hunt the winner.

My thread about guns and history turned into this American vs. Canadian thing, and I am going to be deleting it shortly most likely because it went completely off topic.

There's a lot to picking a bow regardless of how suited it is to hunting. You need to bear in mind your draw length, the poundage of the bow, weight, and size. A large bow will be a pain to carry around while tracking animals, and a heavy bow will eventually tire you out and ruin your aim. If you get a bow with too little draw length you risk damaging it if you overdraw, too much draw length and your arrows won't reach full acceleration, ruining your range, and will possibly wobble/vibrate as they leave the bow, completely ruining your accuracy. Bear in mind also that bows are not as silent as they are thought to be, a recurve especially makes a pretty loud clack when you loose.

A few things. The modern compound bow is a wonder of power, efficiency, and accuracy. The mechanical design is such that it actually becomes easier to draw as it comes to full draw. With modern sights (including optical sights) and mechanical release mechanisms, along with modern carbon-fiber arrows, composite fletching, and highly destructive broadhead designs... they are amazingly accurate and deadly.
However... There's a lot of work involved. These are complex mechanical devices. I have a catalogue from a major archery supplier and about half of it is just little upgrade "bits" you can buy for your compound bow.
There are pages and pages of sighting equipment, mechanical releases, and arrow-related tackle.

If you want to go that route, you need to do some homework. Go to a well-equipped archery shop. Most will have a shooting range and lessons available.

The second way to go is the "traditional" archery route. The modern composite recurve or longbow. Much simpler, but also considerably less effective and requires more training and practice to shoot well enough for hunting.

Finally, the "primitive" route. Make your own bow. Make your own arrows, bowstrings, etc. This is what I enjoy (I don't hunt...), I have made several longbows and enjoy shooting these at the local field range.
Again, to become proficient, you need quite a lot of practice and training.

Check out Bowsite. It's a very helpful place to ask for advice and learn about bow hunting of all species.
