Why I love bow online hunting games is because they are very similar to real bow hunting and I can enjoy the thrill of stalking a target and watch my bow hunting game development to see how I improve with practice.
Bows and arrows are the oldest hunting weapons and were also used as fighting weapons in war by serving archers, only spears preceded them. There have been several types of bows over the years, the oldest being the traditional longbow.
These were over five feet (1.5 metres) long and were normally made of yew although elm was also used. The strings of the longbow were made from sinews taken from the legs of deer or animal gut. Then hunters discovered they got greater flexibility and accuracy by using composite bows made from a combination of materials. So bows began to be made of horn and bone mixed with the wood with sinews and gut.
In the middle of the 20th Century the compound bow was invented, these bows have pulleys and cams on the ends of the limbs with a long string that crosses the bow several times. As the archer draws the string to its fullest extent the weight of the bow rapidly drops. This is due to one of the limbs having an elliptical cam on it which controls the weight and makes the arrows fly faster and hit the target more accurately. These bows are designed for maximum accuracy due to the release aids and scope and the arrows give a flatter trajectory.
The recurve bow is so-called because of the reverse curves at the ends so the limbs curve in towards the archer and gives the archer a very powerful shot. Olympic archers shoot with recurve bows as they are the only type of bow allowed in the Olympic Games. Beginners can buy cheap versions until they get used to them but after about six months they will want to move on to a heavier version.
The Best Compound Bow
So which is the best compound bow to get for real hunting? According to several hunters the best compound bow is the Stinger NI ready to shoot bow. It is one hundred per cent accurate, quiet to use and light to hold. It also has immense power and is ready to shoot at a moment’s notice.
It has a five inch draw length but this is adjustable to suit each archer. It also comes in different draw strengths so it is suitable for beginners and children as well as experienced archers. This is the make of bow which beginners can start on a low strength until they have become proficient at shooting then move up to a higher draw strength. It is also ideal for families as it means the children can use exactly the same bow as their Dad or Mum.
Online Bow Hunting Games
There are different versions of bow hunting games you can play online, but they are all classic hunting games and are as realistic as the real thing in the great outdoors.
You are placed in the middle of a forest dressed in camouflage gear with your trusty bow in your hand. You are trying desperately not to tread on a twig to alert the deer that has suddenly appeared in your sight and you slowly raise your bow and fire as the adrenalin courses through your body.
The object is to shoot as many deer as you can to earn points and it is also a game you can play on your own and you can have great fun competing against your friends. Bow hunting online is easy and fun, you are not shooting real animals so you are not breaking any law. But it takes time to earn decent points, that is why I love bow hunting game development.
