    Once again winter is upon us and instead of complaining about the cold, as I usually do, I figured I would provide the folks here on Tradtalk the benefits of my vast experience shooting in inclement weather. The topic today is how to dress. The biggest question I face at outdoor winter...

    As some of you may know, I switched to stringwalking a while back. I'm really enjoying the journey, and everything it's teaching me about archery, which is a hell of a lot. I've also decided to switch to a longer bow, like Hank has. With a 32in barebow draw, I've decided that it'll be a bit...

    Gentlefolk...My latest endeavor in archery was to create stack weights comprised of a series of carbide buttons segregated and isolated by elastomer (re: rubber) washers to be mounted on the sides of my Horizon riser and truth be told?...I was mainly going for mass and had "But Hopes" that there...

    I got one of the adjustable springy's from Gary McCain last year at the IBO Western Trad shoot. I had wanted to try it but I did not want to remove the stick on rests from any of my risers. I finally remembered an old KAP Windstorm II I bought several years ago as a platform for bow testing. I...

    Steve, I remember reading you do your form work with an 18 pound bow? Maybe it was 20. Is that the bow weight or your loooong draw weight? The reason I ask is because I just started doing some form practice with 30 pounds. I'm having trouble feeling the switch to the rhomboids after anchor...

    So?...about 3 weeks back I removed the 790gm/27oz nearly 1 3/4LB Steel BB weight from my 27" Gillo G1 w/Maple Core F7 Shorts...reason?...my bow arm elbow was catching fire after about a week of practicing 50 well executed shots a night off this 68"/32# dream rig of mine...which is totally...

    Hey, I just received the sight that I bought off another forum. Won't my friends be surprised to see me shooting a full fledged Olympic rig. I got it for fun -- I am still fully committed to barebow. Got to try a sight at least once in my life. Now I am interested in how I score with the sight...

    I saw your comments re adventuresome on the “whose using HH bows” thread on the LW:) I believe you have commented you shoot an HH on occasion and probably shoot it quite well. I also believe in certain hands they can be shot as well as any. Okay, serious questions skipping the emotion and...

    Rather audaciously, I think I've solved this problem. It's partially about language. I think Hank has modified a method others have been using for yonks - and he's done it in such a way that it lends itself to verbal description, once all the elements are in place (if the description doesn't...

    At the bequest of the mater himself, I've been fooling with his aiming system...doing a little R/D for the neo-trad set... ...truly revolutionary... I was at a small archery range at Dvorshack RES in ID, facing the 60 yard bag with trusty "Stackmaster" in hand...#65...400 Axis...200 grn...

    Getting close to gluing up a bow. Got the clamps ready, pressure strips ready, etc. Just have to line the oven with foam/foil, cut and shape the riser and should be ready to glue up.

    Take a look at this Sunset Hill D style "string follow" longbow. No reflex. The bowyer, Nate Steen, says he gets over 180 fps with 600-660 grn arrows 63-66#@27... Pretty nice workmanship, huh. [IMG]

    Hank, As your friend, I've been trying to think of a concise, persuasive argument that will help you see the light. :) I may have found it. Let me know if this helps...
