When I'm not using my rifle for hunting trips, I rely on a bow and arrow to bring my game down. I wanted to find a reliable compound bow as standard bows don't seem to provide the range and accuracy that I'm after. I came across this 55lb black hunting compound bow by Anglo Arms a few weeks ago and tried it out.
The bow itself is ideal for adults between 5'8" and 6'5" and has a 75 meter range. I'd be targeting small game for testing, so I travelled to a local field known for its hare population.
The first thing that I noticed was the ease in which the drawstring can be pulled. I loaded up an arrow and took aim from 25yds at a 2lb hare and hit my mark first try. The pressure was enough to send the arrow out the other side of the hare in one motion - this is easily one of the strongest bows I've ever used. For a long range bow, it doesn't lose out on any strength before hitting its mark.

As the hunting bow is lightweight, it makes a great stealth bow and I was able to load up and let off another arrow in the opposite direction within the space of a minute, taking out a pheasant about to take flight. For a hunting weapon that doesn't sacrifice any features for usability, it's very accurate and effective and I've used it several times since with great success.
