A laser sight on your bow will allow you to dial in your weapon and hit your target consistently. Laser sights also work well in lowlight situations and increase your available hunting time, since it's easier to see at night with a laser than a fibre-optic or standard sight. The challenge of mounting a laser sight to an older bow like the Brown Bear is the bow's wooden riser. Drilling into that riser could jeopardise the structural integrity of the weapon. Using a simple workaround you can attach the laser sight to your bow without damaging it.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Laser sight with universal bow mount
  • Rubber mouse pad
  • Scissors
  • 2 zip ties
  • Allen keys

  1. 1

    Choose where you want to place the laser sight on your bow's riser. A good place is about 4 inches above the hand grip, on the same side as the arrow rest.

  2. 2

    Cut a strip off a rubber mouse pad, 2 inches wide.

  3. 3

    Thread the two zip ties through the universal sight mount. Wrap the riser with the strip of rubber mouse pad. Fasten the zip ties around the rubber and riser about 1 inch apart, and secure tightly. Attach the remote on/off switch to the bow's handgrip with the adhesive strip that comes with the laser sight.

  4. 4

    Adjust the laser sight. Go to an archery range and zero in on your operating range, typically 30 or 40 yards. Set the left/right adjustment and tweak the elevation adjustment using the Allen keys, until you are hitting bull's-eyes.
