    I know that most everybody here is actually serious about their hunting and competition. But that doesn't also mean that we don't like to just have fun once in a while. I've just added a couple of "fun" pieces to our online store. We now have whistling points plus some adapters that would allow...

    If you measure fun by X-rays and physical therapy sessions then I am having a great time. I have a reputation of having to have X-rays after every vacation. This is what happens when you are old but still doing things only youngsters should do. I started physical therapy tonight on my left...

    Been preparing course for fun 3D all week, it's a memorial shoot so no WA rules, a little bit of thinking involved as a few archers are non shooters and just come once a year so easy stakes and backstops so not too many lost arrows, some herd shots and hunter prey where you're deducted points if...

    Well, it's been a few years since I've shot Longbow so I guess a new toy was in order. Best make my normal pink and green string and get some wood arrows on the go i think. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I bought my Das/Dalla used a few years ago and have always liked shooting it. David did a great job with his platform design. Anyhow, it came with an SRF Sight . I never used it till today. I can really see the benefit of the SRF. I usually shoot instinctive but wow, my groups were really tight...

    I had been looking for a pair of the old TT Samick Longbow limbs - the basic wood glass with a clear finish and I lucked upon www.TwigArchery.com who happened to have a new set of 35# in stock for a reasonable $150! Set them up on the Titan III, making a 64" bow. After all the horror stories...

    Last night after work, I went to the range and shot a 14 target field round and probably had the best time (enjoyable) shooting in a very very long time. I am always getting my self worked up trying to get ready for the next shoot that is around the corner. Got to get this, or that figured...

    The main reason I've gotten back at it is my son Leo has expressed a real interest in archery. He's been being taught form and aiming from as soon as he could pick up a bow. We got up at 4:30 this morning and drove over the divide to shoot the Greatfalls archery clubs safari shoot. This is...

    Hello, A new forum member here, but not new to archery. My archery days started over 50 years ago when I was 9 and got a recurve selling cards door to door. I loved that first bow. Fast forward 30 years and I shot a Hoyt compound target bow (40 lbs with 50 percent let off bowhunter class) in...

    I am curious, what is your opinion on what the rhetoric would have been if Bernie Sanders had won the Democratic nomination? Trump was generally complimentary of Sanders as he tried to appeal to his supporters. How do you think it would have gone in the general election? I am not talking winners...

    Even though field archery is my favorite type of event, I attended a fun shoot this weekend that might even be more fun than that. It was shot on a 28-target field course, but the targets were a mixture of NFAA field & hunter, FITA field and hunter, animal, 3D, and safari, all with marked...

    Had a guy tell me about a product called the megaboom. I googled it and sent a link to a few friends. One of them responded he did this for years by installing a valve stem in a water bottle cap and filling it to 80psi. Well some research suggested the bigger the bottle the louder the boom. I...
