    I was thinking about this today when I was flinging arrows. I'm shooting pretty good, not my best but not my worst either. I'm not hitting 10s with every shot but I'm in the money with 90% at different yardages and even unknown yardages. It occurred to me that this is pretty good shooting...

    Hi everyone, I just signed up yesterday and have spent about five or six hours reading posts on this forum and the Archery Talk forum. I’ve been “researching” archery on the internet for about two months, and think I’m starting to get a sense of the direction I want to go. I’ve read just enough...

    This happens about 15 times a day, annoying and sometimes embarrassing when in public but this hormone treatment keeps me alive. Still shooting, although not very well. These hot flushes kill your focus when shooting lol Merry Xmas to everyone

    My Girlfriend just took up traditional archery and wants go deer hunting with her recurve pulling 35# at her draw length. Here in Minnesota, that is a legal weight. I’m just not convinced that draw weight is actually enough. Does anyone know it ethically kill a deer? If so on what equipment?

    I strongly believe to advance and grow in this sport as an Archer you need to strike a balance between back yard practice and tourney, if fact just shooting in the back yard can be detrimental to your shooting, tourney isn't just a place to win medals, it's a proving ground where you find what...

    Many good lessons for all ages and your kids have a jump on it if they shoot with you. Assuming you shoot a recurve. As a visible symbol of the covenant that he will not destroy the earth by water again, God unstrung his bow. Relaxed the limb tips reach the earth. Kids can learn about the...

    My son has been showing some serious interest in the last few years in recurves. Last year for his birthday I got him a warf mini mag and a set of SF axiom+. He is 10 years old and is loving shooting. His form is unbelievable for a kid his age shooting as short a time as he has. The 25th of this...

    I had a compound bow several years ago and was pretty good with it. I have been thinking about getting a recurve for some time. I found a good deal on a Martin Jaguar elite 40# bow. I liked this bow because it uses a rest instead of the shelf. I don't want to mess with feather fletched arrows...

    OK, just starting shooting again. Since I haven't really shot in a couple of decades, I deliberately bought a light bow. I am tall and my draw length is about 30 inches. I got a Samick Journey, 30# at 28". I had Easton 2018 aluminum arrows from a previous bow. I looked at Easton's Chart, and...
