Compound bows are made differently from recuuve bows and longbows. In order to multiply the force applied to the arrow, the body is strung in a continuous loop that uses a pair of pulleys. Another thing that the pulley system is good for is the releasing of tension in the archer’s arms when the bow is fully drawn. This makes it easier to hold the arrow in a firing position. Compound bows enable you to have a better shot under full load than if you had used recurve or longbows.
Another advantage of the compound bow over the recurve or longbow is that you will be able to adjust the draw strength of the bow which cannot be done with both recurve or longbow since they already have set draw strength when fully drawn. If you need to adjust the draw strength of your compound bow, you simply need to change the pulleys and cams on the bow. What is great about being able to adjust draw strength is that anyone can use a single compound bow which simply need to be adjusted depending on the user’s size and strength. You can have this advantage if you are using a compound bow.
Another great advantage of using a compound bow is that it is much powerful than a longbow or a recurve bow. Because the draw strength of the compound can be adjusted then it gives that kind of bow a certain advantage over other kinds of bows. With a compound bow, an archer can hold the arrow in a ready position for a period of time and he can have a steadier aim at the target because he can release tension brought about by the cams used in the pulley assembly.
Compound bows are much shorter than good recurve bows and this gives a hunter plenty of advantages. With a shorter bow, there is less chances of getting entangled in undergrowth which makes a lot of noise if you are trying to loosen it up. Your target can get scared by the noise that the undergrowth makes when taking your bow out of it, then this is why the compound bow is made shorter which will not make it possible to experience such entanglement. When hunting wild game, compound bows would really give the hunter a great advantage.
