Dry firing a bow. It’s pretty much the ultimate archery sin. No one wants to be guilty of dry firing a bow. Worse yet, dry firing your brand new bow as your buddy videos the stunt, in slow motion, on his phone. Yeah, that’s a pretty low blow.
But that’s exactly what happened in the video below. With the tags still on this guy’s bowfishing rig, he dry fires his bow, sending bow parts in every direction.
This is why archery shop owners and bowhunter education instructors preach, “Don’t Ever Dry Fire a Bow!”
