Compound Bows is one type of bow that is very much applicable as a hunting weapon, although many archery addicts also use this one for many other good reasons.
The first compound bow was invented by Holless Wilbur Allen in 1966, while it was first patented on 1969. Years have passed and compound bows had become increasingly renowned not only to US, but to other parts of the world as well.
Unlike with other types of bows, a compound bow's string is attached to its pulley, and in which one or two of these has cables attached to the bow's limbs. Once the bowstring is drawn back, the pulley will turn, resulting to pulling the cables, thus making the top and bottom limbs of the compound bow to bend inward and store energy.

Here is a simple explanation on how science works with the use of compound bows. As the limbs are squeezed inwards, there is a stored energy in the limbs, in the form of potential energy. Upon releasing the string, about 70 to 85 percent of that potential energy is transferred to the arrow, now in the form of kinetic energy. Right after, the limbs go back to its original position, after all the energy has been converted and released, and the same process goes with every attempt of making a target using your bows and arrows.
Speaking of arrows, the arrows used together with compound bows slightly differs compared to other arrows used for a different type of bows. The arrows for compound bows are usually made of carbon or aluminum alloy. Wooden arrows are not advisable since they tend to break easily because there's a lot of force transferred to the arrow upon its release.
In choosing your right compound bows, one factor you have to consider is the efficiency of the bows, in terms of how much energy it can store on its limbs and the amount of energy it can pass to the arrow, as explained a while ago.
Surely, there are a lot of compound arrows available of different styles, sizes, colors, and shapes. All you need to do is to be keen enough and not to be blinded by false advertisements. It's also advisable to ask the experts’ advice, so that when you are going to purchase your item, you know you've got a quality and reliable one.
