    Note the updated WA Target Barebow rule, published on 1 October... "It is now mandatory that the end (practically, the top) of the centre serving cannot end in the field of vision of the archer at full draw, preventing it from being used as an aiming aid." It applies to WA target archery, but...

    Field Optics Research Rapid Release Binocular Tripod Adapter GEN 2 We just started carrying this quick release Binocular Tripod Adapter. We saw it at SHOT Show and we were VERY impressed with the quality and for the price we feel it will be the "go to" adapter for sure. The new GEN 2...

    Because broadhead tipped arrows have a bigger cross-section than field point tipped arrows, I'm guessing that broadheads drift a bit more in a cross wind than field points. Any thoughts? Has anybody tested this?

    Hi all , I was just curious about the approximate ratio of stringbow shooters compared to compounders at field archery clubs globally. In New Zealand it seems to be about 75% compound vs everyone else. Certainly at my club this is the case and elsewhere I go seems roughly the same. Are there...

    I was just going to mount some 11/32 160 grain field points on some 11/32 75 gr and 100 gr adaptors. They don't fit. The adaptor may be too long (?) and that puts some play in the point and threads. The 125 grain adaptor fits nice and snug. I take that back about the adaptor being too long -...

    Does anyone have experience using the Power-Stop Field Target 48 (http://www.lancasterarchery.com/power-stop-field-target-48.html)? I am wondering if it would be suitable for an 18m indoor range with a 45# maximum draw weight limit, or if it is more suitable as a JOAD/NASP 20-30# max target.

    Yesterday was nice so I dragged out my field bow, Gillo G1 in 36# and started working on my gaps again. Haven't shot any field in a while. In my yard, I have marked off with buried bricks yardages from 15 yards every 5 yards to 55 yards. 60 is in the middle of the street, not too safe. I can go...

    Hey all, Anyone know where I can get FP's in 150, 175 and 200grains? Only place I've found is GrizzlyStiks and they have a pretty crappy rep for their products and business practices. Thanks,

    I started shooting Easton Axis arrows lately and I either need to buy something other than my bag target or I need to find someone who makes a 9/32 175 grain tip. My 5 year old daughter typically retrieves arrows for me and she can't get these things out of the bag.

First two days are the national championship. Day one is unmarked 5-45m for barebow and day two is marked 5-50m...

    Is it legal to use your finger/hand etc. to set your point of aim in NFAA field Traditional class. I have always heard that it is not legal, but am getting some conflicting information. I know most people use something on their bow to help set gaps during the shot sequence.

    Centaur limbs for NFAA field ? I am new at the field archery and was considering using a pair of Centaur longs in the BB class. The weight on my Spig BB is 39#. I never saw anyone using Longbow limbs for that. Any thoughts on that?

    I shoot at an outdoor archery range and it's also where I do my arrow tuning. What I'm doing now is shooting some bare shafts, marking them, and then going home and cutting them on the arrow saw. I can't take the arrow saw with me since there are no outlets at the range. And marking an arrow...
