And that’s the most important thing to keep in mind, and I’ll add to it that a bow/arrow-setup that is tuned perfectly for one shooter may not be perfectly tuned when another shooter uses it. Things like quality of release and hand pressure on the bow do make a difference in the tuning. Tuning without a bow quiver and then attaching a bow quiver can alter the tuning too. I even heard it said, but have never tested it, that even the number of arrows in a bow quiver can alter tuning. If you use a bow quiver, the safest approach is to tune with the bow set up exactly as you intend to hunt with it.


Chuck Adams of Hoyt/Easton found that to be the case (ie; number of arrows in the quiver altering the tune). Almost every picture of him on his Super Slam quest showed him with his famous hip quiver back in the late 1990’s. I would think a Hooter Shooter would show changing the number of arrows will affect the tune…
