GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- West Michigan hunters are about to enter the third week of bow season, and having a custom fit bow can make the rest of this season more enjoyable. It will also make it easier to get that big buck.

Hunting experts at Al & Bob's Sports in Grand Rapids know exactly how to fit a bow to a person by adjusting it's sight, rest, and loop. "Yeah, when we fit somebody for a bow, generally when you shot your bow it was all set up, and it was set up for an individual but it all needed to be adjusted," says Merle Shoemaker, store manager at Al & Bob's Sports.

Watch the video above to see them set up FOX 17's Ty Shesky with a new bow.

If you got a buck already, take a picture and upload it to the Al & Bob Sports Big Buck Photo Contest on the website or their Facebook page.

This week's winners were Autumn Straley and Lindsay Thorsen.
