    What an interview with Tom Laughlin who played Billy Jack in the movies. Wish we'd had him run against Hillary in the primary. He's gone now (back in 2013). Just thought you might enjoy what he had to say. I thought it pretty refreshing after what the country went through last season. I...

    I thought with all the frivolous stuff being posted, I should post a useful technical tip for those hunting the post Hallowe'en Jack O'Lantern. This wily specimen, though he seemed solid (as if frozen), let many of my arrows pass right through at 14m. He was like a ghost. Creepy. Of the few...

It is a Globetrotter made by Jack Belcher the father of Jim (SKY) Belcher, there are quite a few Jack Belcher bows being shot in the NFAS Trad classes in...

    In December Stringwalker Jack was kind enough to gift a set of PSE limbs for my kids. Santa came again today. The limbs look great. Really appreciate it. Thanks, John. Bob

    It's funny how the mind works. The psychologist calls out a word and asks you for the first thing it immediately makes you thing of. Word Association, neuro-linguistic programming, whatever. Well from the first time I saw one, and held one, this riser has always made me think of it as very...

    Here are a few pics of Jack's bows, I was informed that the green glass on the bamboo longbow was the same stuff Howard Hill used. Check out the old school rest on the 'Lil' Long Shanks recurve. Shot of the day was the grizzly 2D out at 65 yards.. If you missed this you where going...

    I'm off the Jack Belcher memorial shoot at Sabden Fold Archers in the morning. Jack is the father of Jim Belcher (sky) The shoot is to pay homage to a great archer and all round nice guy, who had time and patience for anyone he shot with. He was a great bowyer too, where do you think his lad...

    I found this man quite fascinating, but I am not sure I would want to follow him into battle. Lieutenant Colonel John Malcolm Thorpe Fleming "Jack" Churchill, (16 September 1906 - 8 March 1996), nicknamed "Fighting Jack Churchill" and "Mad Jack", was a British soldier who fought throughout...

    This is getting rediculous. The old if your a success and we aren't you owe us for your success. Here come the tax man. Look out Lynchburg, Jack Daniels can move to China too. http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2011/10/21/new-tax-on-jack-daniels-could-come-back-to-haunt-company-town/

    In 1939 Captain Jack Churchill of the Manchester Regiment was a member of the British team competing in the World Archery Championship at Oslo. With war in the offing, the party arrived back in England after some difficulties and he went, almost immediately, with the advance party of the British...

    I picked up some 2117's that were once made by Easton for jack Howard and it's kind of sparked my interest in reading about his bows and exploits as both a hunter and a target shooter. I can across a reference to a stretchy string material that Jack prefered to use on his bows and supposedly...

    I did not know if any of you have read about this yet. Another legend in the archery world has passed on. There is a thread on TG http://tradgang.com//noncgi/ultimatebb.php?ubb=get_topic;f=1;t=025970 And also one on LW...
