    I am curious what are some of the silly litttle things that turn you away from bows or equipment. I know I have some of my own pet peeves that make no real sense but they always make me think twice about buying. 1. Archery coins or medallions. I actually like them on a bear bow but can’t get...

    Recently purchased a Gillo and love the riser but hate the grip, I'm a lefty and all I can feel when I draw the bow is the edge of the grip digging in to my hand along the inside edge of my large thumb pad . I can hold it in a high wrist grip to make it more comfortable but would...

    I have never spent 1 penny at a wal mart and never will. despise their "business model". this article explains some of their shady, normal, business as usual. they built one in my neighborhood a few years ago. almost everyone that lives out here ignores them. the local super market that is owned...

    Well...... I injured a muscle that pulls on my draw arm scapula. It has been feeling like a knot for awhile but it finally got to the point where I had to stop shooting. I am not sure if it is from pulling my back shoulder down, drawing with my scapula, or both. I had to stop shooting before I...

    Well, I was supposed to go to a tournament today at my local shop at 8. I woke up at 6 and felt great. Then, as I'm about to leave it happens, like always. I get horrible stomachaches and can barely move. As of right now I hate my life And not to mention, I almost overdosed on Xanax just trying...

    Went to go check trail cameras only to discover that some idiot trespassed onto MY LAND and took 3 stands with climbing sticks and a camera. That is over $500 of stuff I have to replace. So freaking frustrated!!!!! Comes at a bad time also. I just bought a new bow and my wife is on maternity...

    Its true I hate them...I recently put some Axis arrows up for trade because I switched arrows, and added 100 grain inserts as part of the new arrangement. Well I, like many ,couldn't get the HIT inserts out to swap in brass inserts. I ruined one arrow and I was being really careful using the...

    Great morning out today, almost too quiet, save the distant rifle shots of the youth season. However, upon drawing back on a pair of does, my T300 rest made a nice "sliding" sound to send my grocery list back into the woods.

    OK, so I am getting ready to smoke and I open the back door and there is one of the hundreds of opossums that I have living nearby. So I slowly shut the door and grab my bow and 2 arrows. I slowly open the door, arrow nocked. The darn thing is coming up towards the porch steps!! I draw come to...

    Got up at 0500 this morning to sit in my new blind. It is a natural blind that I did last week. Wanted to give it time to "cool down" some. It is 20 yards off of a well used trail. I know it is well used due to fresh prints in it almost every day and the trail its self is about 2.5-3 ft wide...

    Went to the regional Champs here in Norway this last weekend. I won the trad class by a good a margin and raised the 18 meter FITA record for a third time this season :) now it is 536... Strange this shooting lark, I opened strong with a first 30 arrows of 276/300 with 3 perfect 30 ends and two...

    Some of you may find this info useful. I've just spent a bomb on three really powerful front lamps for my mountain bike and now regularly race through the woods at night. Now, I've formerly never been scared of wild boar (not even remotely, and they're very abundant here). They generally keep...

    Geeeeze talk about ruining a good day. All you gotta do is put a sight on my bow and the day is going to a long day. The use of a sight must narrow the forgiving range of your form. The use of a sight must overload my pea brain with input, the use of a sight must be masocistic desire to...

    Guys, just wanted to give you a heads up I am leaving trad archery. I have come to this decision after some thought. It has gotten to the point that it just isn't fun anymore. Target Panic for the last 4 years has taken its toll. I want to enjoy my time afield more and feel I can better...

    Well it is official I hate this sight. Robert has most of my money cause i just ordered a Quinn Stallion, a clicker and now even a fita style sight so i can hash down my form. Shot my first 240 score the other day and can't stop stareing at the DAS bows. Once again I dislike all of you...
