Bryan Hughes is no stranger to shooting big Alabama fish with his bow. In fact, he’s made it his business to shoot big chunky fish with archery equipment and help others across the country do the same. Hughes started Backwater Outdoors in Gurley, AL as a way to do what he loves for a living. […]

HHA King Pin Sight Review

When it comes to single pin sights, there is no question HHA Sights is king of the world. For 2015, they have a new sight called the Optimizer Lite King Pin that comes packed with features. For starters, the sight has five feet of fiber optics so it is extremely bright. It has a mechanical rheostat so the brightness of the pin can be adjusted. What bowhunters will really like is that the sight can be sighted in at 20 and 60 yards. The sight will be dialed in yard for yard, out to 100 yards. On top of that, the King Pin comes with a sight tape magnifier so bowhunters can be accurate down to 1/4 yard. Talk about splitting hairs...this sight will do it! The sight also has 2.1” of vertical adjustment and interchangeable wheels for different arrow or bow weight configurations.

Well, times have changed, and single-pin slider sights are now the rage among bowhunters as well. Bowhunters have realized the simplicity of hunting with a single-pin sight and are experiencing more punched tags as they add this […]

Finger vs. Thumb Release

For proper execution with a thumb-trigger release the barrel should rest securely back into your thumb, almost near the palm of your hand.

The index-finger or caliper style, wrist strap release is by far the most common release aid used by bow hunters. I haven’t hunted with one in years. Why? Because I discovered the many benefits of a handheld, thumb-trigger release. Don’t get me wrong, there are many great things about a typical wrist strap release: they […]
