How to Determine Bow Draw Length

A quick way to determine your approximate bow draw length.

What's my Draw Length?

Draw length is defined as the distance at the archer's full draw, from the nocking point on the string to the throat of the bow grip plus 1 3/4 inches. (This is when you pull your bow back). You will need to determine this before you decide to buy a bow. Certain bows have specified draw lengths.

To get a rough estimate, have someone measure your wingspan from fingertip to fingertip. Divide that number by 2.5 and you have your quick estimate!
