longbow

    So I received my pair of Longbows from Kirk at Bigfoot. I was a little nervous about these to be honest, I'd never shot a longbow, only recurves, and I was anxious about how the performance of the bow would match up to the Toelke Chinook [email protected]" or the Covert Hunter [email protected] These bows are at...

    Team I'm looking for suggestion for a quiver for an ILF Longbow I plan on using this year. All suggestions welcome thank you Pete

    1. Has anyone done this? Is it worth considering, or just get a Dryad 15" riser? a) ILF might effectively "relax" the limb pad angle; is this OK? 2. Mock ILF. Alternatively, I'm thinking of routing slots in the limb butts: from the bolt hole to the end of the limb butt. Then limbs...

    Hello all. Loving my DAS 17" with standard DAS longbow limbs. Very forgiving bow. Have a Mountain Muffler string on it. Shoots awesome. Just curious if any that have hunted with this set up and have put anything on limbs or inside the ILF pocket to quiet their rigs or any other suggestions...

    I have the itch for a Hill style longbow. I’ve owned them before so I know they are slow and some have hand shock. I’m looking at a HH tembo. I can’t decide what grip to go with between the trad straight grip, dished or locator. Locator might fit me better since I shoot low wrist recurves.

    My son has grown a lot lately, and now his draw length has grown to the point that his 25lb recurve is hard to pull to anchor. He needs something lighter, and he really would like to have a one piece wooden longbow. Are there any sources for a light draw weight longbow? It seems like 30lbs...

    I have one that has killed multiple animals with but would love to find another. 62-66” 40-50#. These were made by Ernie McKenzie in Montana years ago. I know Kirk Lavender remade this model with Ernie’s permission for a bit and I own one of those. I am still looking for a DAS Elite RH in...

    Its been sitting in my closet for almost a year. I wanted that bow so bad because I love the look but the prospect of shooting it is something else. A gorgeous all wood "flat bow" made from lemon wood purple heart and something else [ I forget ]. I fooled around with it a while ago, not what id...

    Hi fellas, new to this forum and only been shooting for 3 months so be kind!! Recently bought myself a RH 43lb longbow @ 28" and it always wants to shoot left. It's not centre cut, and I havent done any bare shaft tuning. As far as I know, hitting left means too stiff shaft. I'm shooting...

    I apologize because I am sure this is a well worn topic but I just cannot find an answer to a scenario that seems to pit experience versus recommendations. I have a short draw length of 25" I am shooting a nice new longbow rated at 65# @28" so my effective draw weight is 57#, I show this...

    My first bow was a Howard Hill "Westley Special", 50#@28. I shot it for a few months, split finger instinctive, and got nowhere with it. Eventually I put it away and forgot about archery. About six months ago the bug bit again, and I have been shooting barebow recurve (USAA rules) in a league...

    Looking for some feedback. I shoot a 13" VPA riser and Centaur limbs, longs. I am looking to move to an X-Long limb. We all know the reputation of Centaur limbs, but hard to get since Jim stopped making them. Suggestions on limbs that are up to the same level of performance, durability and...

    My new Omega Spirit longbow arrived the other day. 64amo 48#@28 .I went with the green mountain camo. This is my first brand new bow. Totally happy with the bow. Just a good looking bow. Shooting 500 GT with 200 grains up front. Shooting great. I've been shooting trad for just a couple years...

    I'm looking for a 3 piece takedown longbow and want to know what everyone recommends. Im not looking for the best because I know that's a matter of opinion. Unfortunately where I live in central texas there aren't many places for me to go and try bows out. I haven't found many people that deal...

    What riser would make a better WARF longbow? And if anyone is shooting longbow limbs which ones do you prefer? I love the way reflex deflex limbs look, but I’m not aware of any for ILF bows. I’m shooting 29” dl and currently working on Bear BB and a Hoyt Spectra lite hunter riser. Have a...

    I am thinking to drop a few lbs of draw weight off the longbow I currently enjoy and the Border "Harrier" longbow has been a casual interest of mine for a few years. I am hoping that maybe a member here has a bit of experience with this model and might be willing to share? Thanks in advance...
