    I have made and shot all kinds of bows but I thought I knew hand-shock till I shot a Mongolian bow. This bow is a wood-glass laminated model and could be made by Ali-bows. It is 45# and and I would say 60-62". Nice smooth draw but when you release your teeth rattle. I just tried out a Bearpaw...

    I'm getting a little bit better at this riding thing. Shooting at sitting trot is pretty bouncy. I couldn't get this horse to canter for the life of me, but at least it was good practice. The property I was at, the owner insists that everyone uses a thumb draw. I can go back and forth between...

    We lost one of my favorite horses tonight Although she was 25 and as grumpy and cantankerous as they come, for some bizarre and unknown reason we got on together like a house on fire. Tonight we found her barely able to stand ... her sides all sucked in ... called the vet who immediately...

    Yesterday I went to one of the renaissance fairs and decided to try out one of the all wood horsebows the vendor was showing. It was rated at 42# at 28" I normally shoot a 45# recurve, and have a 28" draw to the throat of the grip. I could not believe how bad the staking this bow had...

    Just put one of these on an '02 Polaris 700 Sportsman little Brother gave me. The OEM upgrade is between $600 and $700 dollars. They had a defective run from '02 through '04 and this fixes it for $225 with a whole lot less work. Took about an hour. Runs like a top now. New life to an old...

    I was wondering with shooting a horse bow and using a thumb ring why do you draw so far back and with such a long arrow. Do you have to draw past your ear. I have seen a couple shooters use a thumb ring and drew to the side of their face and shoot with the arrow on the left side of riser wit a...

    This is mine/my dad's Plains Indian-style bow that was made by bowyer Bill Vonderhey sometime in the 1990's. Vonderhey has since passed away. Drawn to 41#@20", I got 125 fps with 383 grain arrows, and up to 119 with 500 grain arrows. Perhaps this bow should be bending more closer to the handle...

    Been out of the archery game for several years and looking to get back into it. After looking around for a bit I've decided to learn to shoot a horse bow but didn't realize until I began shopping around online the different designs and materials that they are made of. My draw length is about...

    first time Aluminum user. i picked up some easton legacy 1916 shafts to try out to get some more GPP. after doing more research on my own, and looking at other arrows, and reading other threads, im really starting to get confused. hahaha there seems to be a general consensus that a 1916 is a...

    A lot of you may be aware of this, but I've not seen a post relating to it. Cordovan leather is actually made from a flat fibrous muscle in a horse's rump. The global supply was dwindling a couple years ago as it apparently correlates with the demand for horse meat, which I haven't been eating...
