Dry Firing a Bow Caught on Camera

By Brodie SwisherSeptember 7, 20169 Comments

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.

Watch the video below as one shooter has his bow blow up right in his hands from a dry fire.

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!”

What about you? Have you ever dry fired a bow? Comment below and tell us about your experience.
