    Hi all - I volunteered to run a short "cultural" class with archery for some 9-10 year olds at school. It will be indoors. I have a PSE/Rolan Junior bow pulling 15# @ 28" (i.e. they'll never get that far!) and I'm just using rubber blunts, no points. 5 yards max. I was thinking of putting up...

    This morning as the kids were getting ready to go to school. Leo my youngest (4) asked me "can we go fishing this weekend Dad" (4 fresh inches of snow and 6 degrees for a temp) to which I responded "sorry dude but, we can't fish again until June" Leo was quiet for a bit and then said "it never...

    Can anyone make any recommendations on a cheap pair of ILF limbs ? I just bought a brand new dryad riser and I am beyond excited to get it in December. This will give me some time to shop around for some limbs. I was told kaya tropics were worth looking into as well as kap winstorms. I was...

    When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were. When they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning.... Uphill... Barefoot... BOTH ways… yadda, yadda, yadda And I remember promising myself that when...

    My wife and I are working on a new website for a friend who is a Maine bear guide. While doing the site I learned that he has a deal for dads or moms that want to take their 10-16 year old on a bear hunt. The deal is simple.....as the adult you buy and pay for your hunt. Your kid can hunt for a...

    I have been running into references about Warf bows and Warfing bows on this forum. Warf seems to be used as both a noun and a verb. I finally decided to check it out. What I found is that a Warf bow is an old compound riser converted to take ILF recurve limbs -- supposedly a good way to get...

    Need to get some arrows for my son. He just got his 15# Blue Bow and he is psyched, He is drawing about 18" and so about 10-12#. Anyway had some cheap Wally World Fiberglass arrows. They weigh a ton, and fly sideways half the time. My full length 3555 GT with 150 gr points flew faster for...

    I need to get my son a new bow. He is 6 going on 7. I picked up a 62" Bullseye at 25#, thought he will only be pulling 18" or so it should be ok. Turns out the 25# is measured at 24" and it is too heavy a draw. I could get 15# limbs for about $60, but overall the bow is a little long for...

    I took the bow I built for my grandson out today to a new construction area that is flat and has plenty of room. I made a 24" arrow out of a 1/4" poplar dowel. I used a nock from the old thin carbon arrows that slip over the shaft and fletched it with three 2" spinwing vanes. With only a tapered...

    Torsten, I was just looking at some bow reviews at Pete Ward's site and came across one for-- Olequa Kids bows. They looked like a good value and something you might be interested in. I'm sure he could build one to your specs and they sure have the "traditional" look you favor. The site is...
