    Allow to me to preface this with the fact that I am an old coot with no where near the flexibilty and range of motion of my youth. As I continually refine my shot process and learning the "action/reaction" thing, I have run across something that may be common, but I haven't seen much about it...

    From what it seems warfing may be a mix of an artform and a science, but I am wanting to warf an old bear bow (no idea what model or really even when it was made) it was a youth bow though.. Not sure if youth bows have shorter risers that make them "unwarfable" so I figured I'd ask some...

    In the first part of the Masters of the Barebow, Rod Jenkins is shooting a to me unknown bow. It looks like the riser has a similarity with the Hoyt Gamemaster? Did someone have further informations? Regards Peter:help:

    George, you inspired me to dig up something other than a popular song re-write. _______________________________________________________________- Mystery That the crimson beauty of an oak can call, Inexorably, to my soul, in fall . . . That a twisted cedar clinging to a cliff, Can give my...

    What follows is some edited paragraphs from a work entitled Orthodoxy, by G.K. Chesterton. He does a marvelous job, in this book, of explaining what my intuition always told me about the relationship between the mysteries of life and the mysteries of our faith. If the following selections...

    I recently asked a group of high school kids if they had any questions about God or the Bible or just life in general that had (1) never been answered at all, or (2) had never been answered satisfactorily. All of them, without exception, were full of questions. Many Christians are afraid to...
