    I shoot every day and hunt as often as possible. Even thought I have killed deer with my recurve I still don’t really know anything about archery. Is there a book or YouTube channel or PDF or something that I could read to learn the basics? Thanks for the help.

    ....And can someone recommend a cheap metal detector? Has any one experienced the death rattle of a bare shaft? I just lost a light spined 1618 aluminum bare shaft with a 40 yd shot. I've seen this before, the shaft flies reasonably straight and then there's an audible buzz, and it pulls...

    One of the often asked questions on trad forums is where do I get a good custom bowstring. I have read posts from folks that have their bows ready to go except they do not have a string. Learning to make a string, whether Flemish or Continuous loop, is an important and practical skill for an...

    This weekend just gone I took part in the second round of the IBO NZ shoot. Had a totally rubbish first round but picked up well in the afternoon round and ended up in 4th place for RU. Anyway enough of that, because I picked up two very useful tips from NZ and Australia's top recurve field...

    So I have been struggling lately with my shooting.....I have some of the best bows on the planet so I knew it wasn't them. I remember when I took Rods clinic that he said you have to let the bow shoot the way it wants too.......well it clicked. My form is not text book.....trust me on that. I...

    I always thought that you trad guys had it so easy. Put the arrow on the string, aim and shoot. Ok ; maybe not. It is a bit overwhelming to say the least. Shooting my Pinnacle with black max limbs, I was pretty impressed with its performance when I received it last week. It did vibrate a...

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mongolian-Bow-refinement-delicacy-old-manual-Flagella-Recurve-Horsebow-35-/321050292931#vi-content Would a bow like that be practical to learn with? Not that one specifically but those bows look so beautiful to me I'd love to own one. Or should I just start with the...

    No coaching here ... I've got You Tube and some DVD's. Unfortunately those resources aren't very interactive but you guys seem to be! LOL It was dark, cold and raining here this evening so I shot some arrows out in the shed at 15 yards. I was shooting (not very well I know) a Hoyt Excel riser...

    I don't know if its relavant or has any value but I found out that you can aim with the bow hand. I started concentrating on having the bow hand at a certain spot and I complete forgot the release and aiming with my eye down the arrow and it worked till I got weary.....It was fun to see the...

    I am left eye dominant and right handed. When I try to gap I am always left of target. My question is this. Is there a way I can line up so that I don't have to move my arrow point to the right. If I was right eyed I assume I would just line up under my target and not have to worry about...

    Trying to shoot a longbow has turned into one of my most humbling experiences. When I do it right, the arrow sores in a beautiful parabolic arc, penetrating the target at least somewhere in the vicinity of where I had intended. When not "PERFECT", my arrow flies like a hard slider or a hanging...

    Hi, I shoot 3 under and the only comfortable anchor I can use is index in corner of mouth and angle of thumb behind jaw. I've tried a million things but my eyeglasses combined with face geometry makes everything else not work. In order to even get middle finger in corner of mouth I need to...
