There are many ways to burn calories.

You can take what you enjoy doing and find ways to burn calories doing it.

I decided to use cross bow hunting as a way to burn calories.

I guess you can say I found a way to kill two birds with a cross bow. (smile)

How does cross bow help to burn calories?

Cross bows have a little weight on them

You must lift your arms to hold the bow and point it to point at your target.

If you’d like to try bow hunting, here’s some tips to help you get started the right way.

When to start bow exercise

You can start anytime.

You do not have to wait for bow hunting seasons to actually practice with a bow.

If you actually want to go bow hunting it generally starts in the fall season starts in late August and runs until the start of December.

There are some that are restricted by special licenses when hunting with a rifle are open to bow hunters with general licenses.

Remember to check your local laws, as each state will have their own regulations.

How to Choose a bow

Bows can be expensive.

It is possible to find used bows online places like offerup, Ebay, Amazon store and Facebook where people are trying to sale their bows.

The first major decision is what bow will you use.

There are three main types of bows used in bow hunting; compound, recurve, and longbows.

Compound bows are the most popular, and also the most modern.

They are usually made from man-made materials (such as fiberglass and metallic/carbon composites), and have a distinctive pulley (known as a cam) and cable system.

Compound bows can also be adjusted and set for different draw weights, allowing for versatility.

Longbows (also known as straight bows) are the oldest known bow, believed to be first used by humans over 25,000 years ago.

They have a simple one piece design, and are likely what most people picture in their head when thinking of a bow and arrow.

However, beginners particularly can find them very difficult to shoot.

They are also harder to draw back, as they do not have the cam and cable system.

A recurve bow is similar in appearance to a longbow, the difference being at the ends, which curve forward slightly.

First introduced approximately 3,500 years ago, the forward curve gives a recurve bow more power than a longbow of the same length.

However, as with the longbow you cannot adjust the draw weight.

It comes down to your personal preference.

It will take time to learn how to shoot bows.

For a beginner, a compound bow will give you the best results quickly.

With these bows, form and accuracy comes from repetitious practice.

A good quality longbow or recurve bow will cost you anywhere between $200 to $800, depending on accessories  and design you choose, you can spend well over $1000 which make and design you chose.

As stated before, second hand equipment may be an option, but it’s definitely a buyer beware market.

Beware of the condition when you purchase a used bow.

Also important is the draw weight.

When you increase the draw weight you increase the arrow’s speed, but it’s not worth doing this at the sacrifice of accuracy.

It’s a good idea to check your local regulations, as most have a minimum poundage on draw weight for hunting.

Time to Accessorize

For a beginner, all you really need is a basic sight, a quiver, and stabilizer.

You’ll also need to choose your arrows.

Make sure that you select ones with the correct size shafts for your bow.

Carbon arrows are the most popular, but many still prefer the traditional cedar shafts.

Learn to Shoot

It takes time and practice to learn how to shoot with accuracy.

This is where you will get a lot of exercise for your upper body by repeating the drawing and aiming motions over and over again will you dial in your precision.

As you gain more practice and experience, you may want to invest in other equipment, including tree stands, clothing, scent camouflages, and different arrows.

Before long you will figure out your preference and increase your skills.
