Studies show being in nature lowers stress, improves memory, and reduces negative thoughts.
But newbies often get stressed up when they keep missing their targets. Small animals dashed away and birds flew off.
Although your proficiency with the bow and arrow is important, the equipment you use for assisting in stability is critical too.

After weeks of hunting and shooting with Bob, I have come to the conclusion that there is no best bow stabilizer for accuracy. I tried my best and learned that it is all in the skills of the shooter. But, but!
A good bow stabilizer helps A LOT.
And here’s why.
The wild animals are super sensitive to noise. They speed off the moment you sneeze.
We are new shooters and we need the extra dampening effect that the bow stabilizer provides.
This is very important. The hunting bow is not light and with the weight tilted back when you draw the arrow, it is logical to have a bow stabilizer in front to provide counter balance. With balance comes accuracy.
To get the best bow stabilizer you may need a lot of trial and error as every bow and hunting condition is different.
You need to find the right match and that takes time.
But it is time well spent as you will be enjoying the shooting practice and the stress reducing effect in nature.
