    In the spirit of honoring those who came before us... Note the depiction of multiple bow types (D longbows, short curved bows, longer recurved bows), archers leaning into the bow, dynamic follow-throughs, holding arrows in the bow hand with points up (just like in modern tribal groups)...

    Finished up the inking for this next addition to the "Art" bows; or what is also referred to as the "Traditional Tattoo Series" bows. This particular riser is for a 66" longbow.

    This is a sneek-peek look at how one of our "Art" or "Tattoo" bows begin. This particular edition to the series is one of a soon to be Elk. Once the design is applied by pencil it will then be carefully inked, coated with a wood stain, and then finally sprayed with a finish-sealer. It's gotten...

    My wife and I spent last weekend in London. From our hotel base just off Trafalgar square, we had Friday night tickets for an Alan Ayckbourn play at the Theater Royal Haymarket and Saturday tickets for the English National Opera's stunning production of Madam Butterfly. Both productions were...

    Hi. Just finished a fita field shoot, first one in a while. Here is the question for the string walkers out there.

    It is so much easier to give you bow an eye and let it see where it is shooting. The eye needs to be a right eye. Ocular dexterous. Not to be confused with left eye, ocular sinister. Paint your eye on the bow then cast the runes to let it see. It is so much easier than all the practicing...

    My new hip quiver from Art Vincent arrived this week. I love the pocket quiver he made me a few years ago but as my wife said she'd treat me to a new one for my birthday I couldn't say no. I know a lot of you guys have quivers from Art too but for those that don't, you really should think about...

    Last March, the temps here were in the 70s and 60s and I had made several trips to the outdoor range for field shooting and for 900 round practice. So far this year, we haven't gotten much out of the 30s. I'm so tired of shooting indoors. (Mr. Morley: Please don't post those pics of you...
