    Hi all Have been getting into practicing shooting spots with my wooden arrows NFAA 300 rounds. I've noticed my scores are not as good as carbons (217 vs 230 PB). It's great fun and gives me some focus to jut shooting randomly in my yard. Is this normal and what are people's experience?

    I finally found a place to shoot down here in NC, but they don't have the single spot 300 round target so I'd like to order some. Any recommendations as to where from?

    I started working on a shooting rig/arrow combo for Winter Spot league this past week...This feeble effort has been both humbling, and educational so far...The thread title says it all, in a nutshell...;)...Still tinkering with a fixed crawl, or long heavy arrows...And trying to decide what...

    I have played almost exclusively traditional blues guitar for many years. My particular interest being the music that originated in the Mississippi Delta played by folks such as Charley Patton, Son House and Robert Johnson. Now I just picked up the square neck resonator on the left (played lap...

    Our club no longer is a member of our SANIFAA (your IFAA). We now belong to SANAA (World Archery) As a result we now shoot the colored targets, these seem a lot harder for me than the blue face. The lighting in our club is not the best so maybe that is why, what with my aging eye sight! I have...

    I have one of these risers. Can it be warfed, either ILF or DAS? Thanks Mike

    I have never cut a blue streak, just curious if anyone could give me an approximation to how much weight I would have to add to compensate for one inch off the front of full length 250's? Doug

    The Rooster will recognize this riser... Heck I think he recognizes half of the equipment on TT as "used to be his". :0) Anyhow I never shot this riser much, we just never got along. I always had an idea to "fat'n" it up though. Fill those two bottom holes with lead, etc. Maybe making it more...

    Just got back from visiting my folks in Groton Connecticut. Gronton is located right on the CT/RI border on any given day we would fish Connecticut, New York and Rhode Island. Blue Crabs are caught at night in the cove using dip nets and head lamps - the right tide didn't come until the end of...

    A young cowboy from Montana goes off to college. Half way through the semester, having foolishly squandered all his money, he calls home. "Dad," he says, "You won't believe what modern education is developing! They actually have a program here in Missoula that will teach our dog, Ole' Blue how...

    Just throwing this out there. I have tried a few different arrows this year. I recently tried the Maxima Blue Streak Selects (250/400). I was using CT Cheetahs briefly. The Maximas are obviously a little heavier over a 32" shaft so I expected them naturally to be slower through the chrono...

    It is strange the way things turn out. A great day in the Dhann forest in central Germany last summer, I found myself shooting in the IFAA world field championships in the wooden arrow longbow class for team USA. I had the pleasure of shooting with the German bowhunter champion and bowyer Thomas...

I ran across this stuff in TRUE VALUE and thought it may just be what I need to convince me to get a QUINN bow,I would like a QUINN but the thought of holding that metal riser in the cold weather has held me up.Comes...
