    I have the itch for a Hill style longbow. I’ve owned them before so I know they are slow and some have hand shock. I’m looking at a HH tembo. I can’t decide what grip to go with between the trad straight grip, dished or locator. Locator might fit me better since I shoot low wrist recurves.

    The last time we went to visit my wife's Grandmother, she gave me a bow that belonged to her husband. I have been trying to find out a little bit more about it, but have had no luck, so here it is. What can you guys tell me about it. It says that it is a Brown Fox Hunter, 60" AMO @ #45. It...

    Im looking at getting a decent longbow something like a Fox TC, Omega Imperial, etc. This will be a target/3D bow and I draw 28". I notice most of the "big names" in the LB class shoot 70" longbows. While I am not totally opposed to shooting a 70" bow, would it really be that much better than...

    Apparently the coyotes have learned that turkeys are easily found and act distracted at this time of year. Several years back two friends were hunting turkeys, had a coyote come right in to their calls. The other morning I was driving to work and checked out a field I often see turkeys in. Saw...

    Something was really tripping me out about the set-up on my Thunder Child because when I went on one of my many point proving missions?...the 3 Rivers spine calculator showed that while 175gr points on my full length (31.5") Axis Black .400 spine shafts fletched 3X4" are pretty much spot-on and...

    Okay fellow Newbies, day 2 of "Calling All Newbies." Post something you have learned or are working on. Let's learn together! I tried G. Fred Asbell's hunting stance and my arrows were flying all over the place. It also hurt my back. Now I am working on an Olympic style stance. Here are...

    How about a daily post about something you learned to share with all the other newbies? We have to learn to crawl before we can walk..... Here's mine: Before learning how to shoot a bow it is important to decide which hand will hold the bow and which will pull the bowstring. As there are...

    It's funny how the mind works. The psychologist calls out a word and asks you for the first thing it immediately makes you thing of. Word Association, neuro-linguistic programming, whatever. Well from the first time I saw one, and held one, this riser has always made me think of it as very...
