2018 Bowhunting Trade Show: New Bows

The world’s largest bowhunting trade show is underway, and the new bow category does not disappoint, with many high-performance compound bows from numerous manufacturers.

Every year compound bow manufacturers continue to push the envelope of speed, accuracy, quietness and balance in their new hunting bows. This year is no different — we are constantly amazed and excited about the improvements and innovations that are offered to bowhunters of all sizes, experience levels and budgets. The Archery Trade Association Show gives us a great chance to check out the new offerings all under one roof. There really is a bow perfect for everyone out there, and it’s a lot of fun trying them all out to find the perfect match.
