Frequently Asked Question

Is there a risk that the bow and arrow will be used as a poaching tool due to its quietness?

When EBF has contacted professionals in nations were bowhunting is legal it

has been found that use of bow and arrow for poaching is extremely low.

In Missisippi, USA, only 1% of the reported poaching incidents were related to bow and arrow.

There are many reasons for this: It is a weapon that is hard or impossible to shoot from a car. 

The greater time required exposes the poacher. And night shooting is difficult.

What is more, archery equipment is an unlikely choice for criminals in pursuit of game

because they have ready access to modern semi-automatic firearms

equipped with silencers and night-vision aids.
