Buying equipment for bow hunting requires one to make certain selections. For instance, equipement is sold for left or right handed users. Hunters generally pick out their equipment based on which eye is dominant for them.
Generally left handed people tend to be left eye dominant and the same holds true for right handed people.
When someone is right handed but left eye dominant, the choice is for the hunter to shoot with the left hand using left handed equipment or to use the left eye and right handed equipment.
The ability to pull the string back is referred to as the draw weight of a bow and is measured in pounds. The draw weight should be lower for a smaller person. Females and males will usually use a different draw weight as well.
