Re: Time to check in
First trad hunt ended with 3 shots, 2 kills, and 1 miss. The freezer now has an Axis doe and sow pig.
The miss cost me a broadhead and shaft as missed a Black Buck doe an inch high and center punched a 2" square tubing feeder leg!! The axis cost me a shaft.
I robbed someone elses thread but was advised to just make a new one.
I filmed my draw form (couldn't get outside, horrendous winds plus whos gonna film)and notice as i align my shoulders my head pivots and i lean forwards at the same time. Anything else? P.s excuse the belly in the back...
Anyone ever use a piece of colored tape on the arrow near the tip that lines up with the rest at full draw? Kind of A visual draw check? Just thinking for some practice sessions or leave on one arrow in a set to just verify form.
I am going through my stuff and getting rid of everything I don't use.
If you have target panic and have trouble hitting your anchor, I have two Click Its. You just need some double sided tape and thin string.
PM me your address and I will send them to you.
Wanted some constructive criticism on my form! When I draw the bow back my draw arm doesnt make the classic v that I see when most people draw a bow..no matter how I try my bicep and forearm are in line instead of a v shape?
Here is the Check Mate bow in question that my good friend unk Bond started a thread on searching for information on. I did purchase this from a lady in Canada that she last shot in 1992. I do not know the actual model name or if it ever had one as she could not remember as well.
This is the...
Guys my friend acquired a check mate recurve bow off Ebay.
Haven't seen it yet. He said it had a metal riser. I have seen the wooden check mate bows. Haven't seen one with a metal riser.
Got a picture or any input to share. Thanks [ Later
Once it gets to early evening on the west coast things really slow down on the forum. At some point we get the overseas folks commenting, but we usually do not see their posts until the morning. So this is the check in. Let us know if you are out there. Add a post when you see this thread. Make...

Amazon Prime Day is ending at the end of the day, but the deals keep coming. We have seen great deals on everything, including TVs, watches, Roomba vacuums, coffee, watches, you name it! Yes, we know this is off-topic, but we wanted to share some of our favorite deals, because regardless of what...
Got a dozen new shafts over the weekend and am going to set up a couple of them to try using fletch to the nose contact as a draw check. Is there any systematic way of going about that, or is it guess and check? My current ideas are to set up 3 arrows with 1/4" difference between the setback and...
Just put on a string clicker on my Hoyt horizon w/30#long limbs.
Only shot about 40 arrows,my conclusions so far.
1.The 29"draw I thought I had is more like 27.5
2.clicker anticipation even at 27.5 is troublesome.If I feel the shot is there I don't want to wait for the click.
I've read that the average distance that a traditional bowhunter successfully shoots game is about 56 feet. My average would be less than that, but 56 feet or 18 yards sounds reasonable.
I thought it would be interesting to apply some of the speed numbers that have been the subject of...
I got some inquiries on my THAT AIN'T TRAD regarding my BAR riser.
Some asked if it flexes, or alluded that it does, so I measured it at anchor.
It does flex something like 3/16".....measured pretty closely.
I was surprised it flexed.....never really thought much about it before this.
I wanted a bow case to customize for my bow. I always wanted a Pelican but couldn't justify the cost.
I saw this Plano case on the big auction site and thought I would give it a shot. I am shocked at the quality and strength of this case. It is also so easy to customize. It is weather tight...
I just put together a list of great buys on Riflescopes and Binoculars and thought I'd post it up. Please feel free to give a call, 516-217-1000, to talk optics or to place an order.
