    After seeing the post about shooting right or left, I reviewed why I shoot right. Here's a little something for the newbys out there. When I first started shooting a recurve the guys I shot with kept telling me about back tension and how it felt like squeezing an orange between your shoulder...

  4. Trail Cams
    or maybe even a zero level class - I know nothing about trail cams but would really like to set one out on an elk water hole and see what happens. What I would like to find out (without buying several first) is what to look for in a camera. What brands/models seem to work best. And what do you...

    Arrow Tuning 101 This is for the people that are having problems with tuning arrows and how to figure out what is happening to the arrow flight. This assumes that the bow is set up properly, brace height, tiller and weight. ILF bows tune differently than a one piece so I will show you how to...

    Hey guys many of you know I've been clearing out some bows. And if you've been bow/hunting/collecting as long as I have you probably have quite a stash. And something I haven't been so good about doing is selling a bow or 2 after I pick up a new bow. Thus I am making up for lost time and...

    A couple of months ago I sent for a Lancaster Archery catalog. What I got back was a copy of a 2009-2010 catalog. The prices coincided with what I was seeing on the web. Some of the merchandise on the web was not in that catalog but otherwise they were in sync. Well I just received the last...

    Hello, rookie q here, I read Dacron, Flemish & fast flite regarding strings. Can anyone 'give me the basics on them and any other relevant details? Pros, cons & dangers of using the wrong ones for wrong applications? I thought I heard once Dacron for lighter stuff, Flemish for heavier poundages...

    If you're not a reader of science fiction, the name John Scalzi may not ring a bell. If you do read sf and haven't read "Agent to the Stars" or "Old Man's War" or "The Android's Dream", then do it. If anyone is 'the next Heinlein', it's Scalzi. Meanwhile, he has one of the oldest blogs on the...

    Someone asked me some particulars about how I applied these to my limbs, so I wrote up an instruction set. Please add your experiences or whatever you think might help. I'm not an expert decal applicator, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, lol. Honestly though, I did touch on...

    Wth comments like, "what would Howard have done with a good bow" and OL's comment "it had to be narrow to get the arrow close to center" -- it really shows the lack of understanding of the Hill design. OL -- what does the grip width have anything to do with getting the arrow closer to center...

    Just a few notes about what has worked for me..and some other folks. Many times we take this accuracy thing, or lack thereof, for granted. Maybe it's time to take a look at some fundamentals in form that may help you become more consistent. Any good golfer has a certain way he or she...
