    My husband and I were talking about archery in warfare and how the bow evolved from a stick to shoot small game, to a bigger stick to shoot people. Did the arrows evolve first to get as much damage done as possible? Did the bow evolve with them? Did war tactics change from close combat to long...

    Can someone give a little explanation of the evolution of different DAS risers and when they came out to production. When 3 rivers started selling the Dalaa,etc. I remember the original came out. Since then, I see the elite, brownie, dalaa,etc.

    This is the first test where I am incorporating my Coops Econo shooting machine. I have added tests of speed and efficiency by draw length to my usual panel of tests. This is just the first test I am adding to my test suite. I plan to look at different arrow weights and bow setups such as brace...

    When I went to my closet last fall and pulled out my bows after many years had passed, I started shooting everyday and have only missed three days since. I began shooting like I had in the past, split finger concentrate on the spot and release. I would have bouts of target panic spasms that...

    Hi All, New member here. Iv'e been lurking here for a while. I am fairly new to archery(less than five years) and have been in and out of it as life and family events have allowed. I'll be 40 this fall and I feel that I will finally be at a place where I can focus on archery a little more...

    Here are a couple of pictures that show the evolution of the Border recurve limb. The limbs are in chronological order, with the top being oldest. They are: XP10 Evolution, Carbon, Premier Carbon, CXB, HEX4, HEX5 and HEX6. You can see how the hook got progressively larger over time.

    Traditional archery is great. I have been in archery for 18 years but only been shooting traditional archery for a couple of years. I have "evolved" to making my own strings, fiddling with making a self bow and now I am playing around with some flint knapping. It just goes to show that...

    It has been a solid year since I switched from wheelie bow (mountain bike bow as Redbow calls em) to somewhat trad (metal risers and carbon arrows lol) I remember picking up my first WARF here, a dozen easton gamegetters, some heavy 130-225 grain tips, and some 34lb limbs. This was after failing...

    Im looking for information about Border XP10 Evolution Carbon/Foam as I can not find them at Border site. I found a set on Intenet close to my home. They are [email protected] 68" and, even thou I now use only long limbs, I would like to know if they would work for me at 30.5" draw. Thanks Martin

    If the moderators do not approve of this, please delete it. I was questioned about my thoughts in a now locked thread and wanted to explain my beliefs. Charles Darwin studied life on the Galopagos islands and came up with his theory of evolution. He noticed that birds on that island had...

    Where I live in New England there is very little formal indoor shooting with traditional bows. Most all competition of the traditional kind is seen at 3D matches. Happens I love 3D, but I don't like what I see in current 3D range setups regarding distances. They are all way too short in...

    Saw this on the LW, copied it. Thought it might apply to some of us!

    I've had a number of Blackbrook 'Zeta's' over the years including the first real production bow (first was just a prototype) and now the lastest double carbon (only 3 made). They've gone through some changes over the years and I stacked them up against each other yesterday to compare Left to...

    Folks, I've got a chance to buy a set of Border XP 10 Evolution limbs at, what may be, a very reasonable price. Only thing.... I don't know a thing about them. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Jim

    Check out this review in the Telegraph: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/arts/main.jhtml?xml=/arts/2007/03/25/bojone24.xml One interesting quote from the article: "Surprisingly, the skeletal evidence from early hunter-gatherers shows little nutritional stress while prehistoric farming communities...

    Why do many people assume the aiming system of our stone-age ancestors must have been something especially 'natural', probably 'instinctive'? I think it goes without saying that early **** sapiens sapiens and even Neandertal man were creatures of language and reason. Isn't it quite likely for...

    What do you think about these for a starter target bow? Thinking about going with the 30#, 68" limbs and the AIM Medalist Sight.
  18. TradTalk Main Forum
    Thinking about getting one and slapping some medium limbs on it. Any opinions and observations on this riser would be appreciated. Specifically, I wonder how it will compare to a warf with long limbs. Should be about the same length, but maybe not quite as smooth since the limbs are shorter...

    I'm thinking about sending this in to our local paper, which is currently debating this issue and focusing on Noah's Ark. I wanted to get some of your opinions before I sent it in on what I may need to change or edit. Thanks, Ray The Letter: How big of a boat would an evolutionist have to...
