The takedown-bow – The Right Bow For You?


A takedown-bow is a compound bow designed with two extended limbs and a riser to create a more practical yet larger bow when strung properly. Although the name may be misleading, it is not intended to be a compound bow like the compound bow. Instead, the design was created to provide an arrow with a stabilizer that would sit behind the limbs and be angled back towards the shooter when relaxed. This would reduce tension on the stabilizer and allow for a straighter release.

In order to use a takedown-bow you must cock the bow with the “azine” pointing downwards and in towards the archer. To release the bow you simply look down and away from the shooter. The stabilizer must be positioned behind the limbs when relaxed as well. This is to prevent the bow from rising while you are releasing it and causing injury. The stabilizer should be positioned so that the weight of the limbs falls on it when relaxed.

In order for the takedown-bow to function correctly you must install the two limbs correctly. The two limbs are installed in such a way that they are perpendicular to each other but at a slight angle. Each limb is designed to rotate independently while being supported by the other. The bow is also connected to a cocking pin which is designed to counterbalance the bow when the limbs are released.

Some stabilizers are spring loaded while others are made from a spring that locks into place. The spring system can be adjusted for both stability and accuracy. After installing the limbs the rear of the bow needs to be attached to a stabilizer that is securely attached to the bow. When you are shooting the takedown-bow you should aim through the sights and not through the arrow. Aiming through the sight will produce a more accurate aim and greatly enhance your accuracy.

It is important to always practice with the takedown-bow before using it in a hunting situation. A practicing range should be set up where you can aim and shoot through a series of targets. This will help you to eliminate any learning problems associated with a specific target and to become comfortable with using the bow. This practice range should be located away from other hunters so that you can effectively shoot without being watched. A good practice range should include a tree stand so that the bow can be assisted with while shooting. Practice with your takedown-bow until you are confident that you can shoot it with accuracy.

As with any bow there are precautions that you should follow to maintain the correct alignment of the limbs. The takedown-bow is designed to be used and handled properly. Make sure to take all precautionary steps to avoid injury.
