Archery bows have many types and forms if looked back in the history. Bows have been evolving through many ages and many of them are now made with other components as well such as the carbon fiber and fiberglass. Some of them also have innovative shooting mechanisms. There are four different types of hunting bows for experts that are “Recurve Bows”, “Compound Bows”, ”Cross bows” and “Long Bows”. These bows give experience to many archers and other beginners what do you think.
These recurve bows were initially used by the horse men in history. The modern recurve bows are now used in the events of Olympics. These bows are named like this because of their different shapes. The central parts of these limbs are curved towards the archer and these limbs’ tips are curved away from the archers. These makings provide more power to the bow and lessen the strength that is needed for the use. These bows are used for teaching archery.
Compound bows were initially produced in the year of 1960 and these bows involve innovative and new system of pulleys, cables and some eccentric cams that provide help in holding and drawing the heavy draw weights. These bows are helpful because they do not cause muscle fatigue. But good strength is must needed for initiating the bow. These bows are not really affected by the changes in the temperature and also with the changes in the humidity as compared to the bows that are made from the natural materials. Compound bows are not at all suitable for the beginners.
Long bows were initially recorded during the battle of 1298 in which these bows were the main weapon of the battle field and it remained like this till the mid of 16th century. Long bows are characterized by their working and simplicity. These bows consist of long and slightly curved wood almost of same height as of the archer and do not really have the arrow sights or rests. Long bows are more difficult to aim as compared to the modern bows thus not suitable for the beginners. Need tons of practice to master.
These bows are believed to be originated in China and their main usage was in the Medieval Ages and in the battle of the Greco-Roman. Modern cross bows are quite similar to the fire arms but they got a short bow that is horizontally attached with the muzzle. The long bows are drawn with a way of crank system in which the string gets attached to the activation mechanism and gets locked in a place till the archer fires. The cross bows have a range of shot that is quite shorter as compared to other shots of bows. That is the reason why they need heavy weights in order to perform them on the same level of the compound bows and recurve bows. These are one of the types of hunting bows for experts.
