    Well, you shoot your wife's patio table of course 😉 It was muddy out so I set my target on her table on the patio. I was shooting at 10 then 20 and 25 yards and doing ok. I decided to step back to 30 and whack! I thought I just ruined a $12.00 arrow. Turns out those Black Eagle vintage arrows...

    I've never shot a compound bow, so pardon me if this is a "duh" question. For many (most?) compound archers, their bow arm is bent instead of straight. How come?

    I have hardly shot since the end of Nov. Just because I like to shoot outside mostly and its been cold. When I fooled around a bit back in early Jan I felt twinges in my arm(inside the elbow particularly when pressure is on the thumb) and decided not to shoot then. I tried it again to day and...

    Hi everyone, Recently just got back into bows after 12 years off. When I was a teenager I used to hunt with compound. But just picked up a longbow about 3 weeks ago. Since buying the bow I have been shooting about 4 times a week. It is a 45# Fleetwood frontier. I am really loving shooting the...

    Anyone have any remedies ? I sometimes think I need mediums instead of long limbs or heavier limbs so I can not lock my arm out which is at its weakest point.

    This is just my observation from shooting various bows I own and Im wondering how it compares to other peoples experience. Im posting/asking about this because I rarely see people comment about grip shape effecting the rotational placement of the hand relative to the bow. I think I prefer a...

    I have suddenly sometimes starting moving my bow arm upon release. I am right handed and it results in me shooting to the right. Sent from my LGLS992 using Tapatalk

    I just wanted to bring this topic up because it seems I/We/Us often hear or read the term..."Bow Arm Freeze"...where many of us have experienced it as well as associate it to be?.... "The Precursor To Target Panic" And as I established and acquired one of the most defined sight pictures I've...

    The front end is actually looking pretty good. Any sort of "U" shaped prosthetic should work well. However I do think you need to work on the release side. Right now her only anchor is her peep with no contact on the face at all. It doesn't look like your using a d-loop and the peep is very...

    So this is more of a form question. Recently I switched to a closed stance because of the string raking across my forward nipple threatening to just rip it completely off lol. So with the closed stance now I battle with the noise of the string slap on the arm guard, which I didn't need to wear...

    Note the movement of the bow arm shoulder . . . 🏹 John

    I have not read much by way of shooting techniques and so my question is about bow arm alignment. When I try for a straight across the shoulder hold it seems to not feel quite right and even seems to lead to "floating" the arm. This feels inconsistant from shot to shot. Also In doing this I feel...

    AT the first of each month I give away anywhere from 1 to three arm guards that I created. I also sell them on ETSY. Go take a look at my "End of Trail" and Bear arm guards.....and post on my Nov. I thread and you will be in on winning one of those shown(not the End of the Trail or the Bear) but...

    I have been having flexibility issues with my draw arm shoulder, though it does not feel injured. My bow arm flares out when I do overhead lifts and other exercises that require me to raise my arms. I cannot keep my arm properly aligned while under load. I had my son look at it and he found...

    OK so no matter what type of bow or grip I use or stabilizer on lack there of my bows don't react to the shot like others. I see every one shoot and have the bottom limb kick out after the shot. When I shoot it kicks in. This occurs with a sling or without. First question. Does it matter? Is...

    Please tell me about your Bow Arm or perhaps a description of how the bow arm should be during the shot. Such as... Bow Arm relaxed? Elbow locked? Elbow Bent? Tell me the simplest, most basic stuff.. I'm incapable of a proper bow arm follow thru.. it moves!! Sometimes violently. I have...
