    Guys and girls, I’m in search of some target faces to replace the target faces at our outdoor range. What we currently have is the official NFAA target/hunter/animal target faces. They are shot up and ratty and need replaced. What we normally do is paint (as glue) the paper face on...

    Need some advice on SF carbon limbs. Pictured are stress fractures on the face/top-side of the upper limb, dozens of tiny fractures that can be felt on the surface. long limb, 34lb, using 3 under. Is this normal wear and tear or catastrophe waiting to happen? My gut tells me to stop shooting...

    Fellow Tradtalkers, care to share a photo to put a face with your name here? I will start if you can stand it?:):):) That dreamcatcher has 6 or more Turkey beards in it. Two Bowkilled.

    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?

    There are people with access to 3D printers playing around with designing and making traditional bow sights: (...

    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 haven't been able to inspect a vintage Bear Polar; but I see from the photos that there is a long vertical "strip" which appears to be made of metal on the face of the riser. I assume that that there must have been sight pins that were mounted on this strip. I imagine that this would have...

    Interesting little archery geek experiment results just becoming obvious 6 weeks into comparing CV limbs on a 25" X-Appeal to hex6.5 ones on a 23" X-Appeal. In general CV limbs on a weighted Samick Vision riser had been the best combo for me for a number of years but when I matched the hex6.5s...

    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...

    Can someone tell me which target the masses use? all sky blue face, different center color, 5-4-3-2-1 scoring? size of paper sheet? can I duct tape it to my Yellow Jacket bag target? Or what do most of you use for backyard 300 round use? Going to order some from LAS, too many choices. Thanks in...

    When I heal up and get back to Shooting I want to use the 300 round to measure my progress. Admittedly I've never shot paper before, but think this is a good route to take. I just want to make sure I'm buying the right target faces. Looking in LAS they have Maple Leaf NFAA Blue and White Face...

    Hello, Tradtalkers!....Recently I've been trying to stretch my draw length out some, by trying open my chest up, get my drawing elbow back farther and around, and keeping my same anchor point, or maybe just a tad bit farther back on my face, but it seems that at the release, the string drags...

    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...

    Ok for me when I switch from blue face NFAA 300 to Vegas face 300, my scores drop by a good bit in general? I prefer to shoot the blue face, it's easier to concentrate on the white spot. I shoot the Vegas spot more because it's my personal weaker target. Is it in my head or is there any logic...

    I started to try to teach myself how to face walk yesterday. I've been shooting for years and never done it but yesterday I was working on 50 and 60 yard shots and decided to try it. So far I have mixed reviews. I think it's going to work. I'm getting all 12 arrows on paper . No grouping yet...

    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...
