Does a drop away rest improve accuracy?
Although the drop away rest is typically considered more accurate than the Whisker Biscuit, the relevant question to a hunter is whether the difference is substantial enough to warrant the use of one over the other.
How does a drop away rest work?

Why is it called a Whisker Biscuit?

What is a containment arrow rest?

At what distance should you paper tune a bow?
