How to adjust your compound bow’s draw weight

John Dudley tackles how to adjust your compound bow’s draw weight in this fourth installment of Nocked and Ready to Rock. Dudley talks about the importance of not drawing too much weight, since that can cause problems with consistent accuracy, and it could even lead to injury.

He walks through the process of checking your bow’s draw weight using a scale, and then reducing the draw weight by turning the tiller limb bolts. Shooting a bow that’s set at a comfortable draw weight, Dudley says, is especially critical for bowhunters, who will certainly need to limit their movements to avoid detection by game.
