“Having the ability to practice how we play is huge! We encounter many obstacles in different hunting scenarios and it’s pivotal to explore these possibilities in a controlled environment before having to figure them out when the hunt is on. It’s one thing to be a great archer, it’s another to be able to put all the pieces together when your exhausted, hungry, beat up, and your heart rate is redlined!”
