Is judging distance important?
If you are talking about bow hunting or 3D Archery, the answer
is definitely YES!
More bow hunting misses can be attributed to judging the distance
wrong than any other reason, excluding Buck fever of course. Even
with the help of laser range finders, judging distance
is still VERY important to the bow hunter. Many times we don't have the
time or don't want to chance the added movement needed to use a range
How Can PC Archery help?
One of the ways we all judge distance is by size. As a target
gets further away it appears smaller. That simple fact combined
with practice is the answer. The more times you look at a target placed
at different distances the better you become at relating its apparent
size to its distance.
PC Archery is calibrated to display your bow, sights and pins at their
actual size. It also calculates and displays the targets at the
correct apparent size for their distance.
Look at the three screens. You can see that the Mule Deer target gets smaller
as the distance increases. BUT THE REAL KEY, is that your bow, pins and the
target are displayed at their ACTUAL size. Your eyes see the same image they
would see if you were to draw your bow on a real target.
By playing PC Archery, you will learn to relate
a target's size to various distances; therefore, YOU BECOME BETTER AT
JUDGING DISTANCE! The more you play the better you get!
Fun and Practice too!
PC Archery is Fun to play and you
can practice any time of day or night.
A good time to use PC Archery is before that SPECIAL HUNT (a Elk hunt
in Colorado, Caribou in Canada or Javalina in Texas...). When you judge the distance
to animals that are a different size than what you're use to, you are more
prone to make an error. Practicing on a target that is the actual size of
the animal you plan to hunt will help.
PC Archery can be setup to allow you to shoot a whole course of Elk,
Caribou or Javalina or any other target. It's better to get the practice
now rather than misjudge the distance later.
