    One of you skillful folks should sharpen a quill and start interviewing the exceptional characters that have posted on this site regularly over the years. I for one would be happily entertained by reading true life stories collected from these intriguing personalities. I can’t say who among us...

    Hey all, I've been thinking of getting a riser to set up an Olympic style bow. The thing is that I am on a budget. I am going to use it as a way to stay in shooting shape and build my arms and back up for shooting my other trad gear. Besides, I have an ILF Morrison 17" riser now, but I have...

    I have about 29.5 inch draw length. Been using long limbs on 17” riser and work great. Thinking about a 19” or 21” riser for 3D. Wondering if I could get by with med limbs on longer riser to prevent bow from getting so long. Not sure if the limb pocket angles on longer risers change enough to...

    Ever since I watched the Lancaster Classic Barebow competition last year I have been dabbling with the idea of getting a good "target" setup. Last year I found a really cheap 25" hoyt excel and have been shooting it regularly and learning how to tune. I really want to switch to an ILF setup now...

    I was watching the Lancaster Classic Barebow competition on YouTube and am know intrigued with the possibility of getting a barebow setup. I am not a beginner and am experienced with wood, ILF, and Warf hunting bows. I shoot my 45# Titan with consistent accuracy and enjoy 3D and indoor...

    Hey guys I'm really hoping you can help. I shot all summer and up until last Sunday have been shooting great to 25 yards. I use a 20-yard fixed crawl and consistently shoot softball size or smaller groups at 25 yards. Unfortunately I never took the time to practice from an elevated position. On...

    Moderators If this post breaks any forum rules regarding discussions involving cross bows, please delete it and accept my apologies I've been given the plans of a 14th century Swiss rampart cross bow. I've been sitting on the plans until today when a friend offered me a 4 foot length of Yew...

    So in my 2 hour long drive into work this morning I got to thinking is fletching really needed for modern arrows? With all the efforts people go through to tune their bows and arrows to get these near perfect bareshaft and fletched arrows to match up, then why continue shooting with fletched...

    I bought this riser at the Tennessee Classic this year. I was considering bolting on my Samick journey limbs but I would rather warf it for ilf limbs. I was told it is a from a Martin super diablo compound. I think it's a 25' riser which I like for my 32" draw length. I,m not sure how to measure...

    In a hollow gate post on our small piece of land we have nesting Blue ****. I'd like to set up a small cheap camera to film the adults feeding their chicks and perhaps capture the moment the chicks leave the nest. I know nothing about modern digital video cameras that you can attach to a lap...

    to all T.T. target panic sufferers I'd like to conduct a very non scientific, fast and dirty experiment regarding Target Panic. To avoid any confirmation bias I don't want to give any details at this stage .... but here's what I'd like you to do. Go out and shoot 6 arrows at a target of your...

    Rotational draw, I've done this for a while and one annoying issue is my Scapula's were squeezing together, as people sometime describe squeezing a tennis ball between the shoulders, the problem for me with this is the Scapula is squeezing together has nowhere to move during expansion and at...

    Hi, I'm developing a serious obstacle to my archery enjoyment (and accuracy). I gap shoot (or at least I try to) and its now starting to become impossible for me to comfortably set my gap and then expand & release. As I approach my gap I'm simply releasing, I'm not coming to full draw...

    It defines a legal bow with wood or wood laminates. Does all the laminations have to be wood? Would a black widow psa with phenolic in bow and wedges be legal or a dryad 19" riser with a glass center? Could a limb have any carbon layers with wood? just trying to define "laminates". I've...

    I heard/read somewhere, that the load on the string when the bow comes to closure was a spike load of 10X the poundage. as a rough calculation... is this true, is this something someone else has heard? has anyone any extra information?

    I just began bare shaft tuning my new Prairie Predator (#41 @ 28) with about a 27.50”-27.75” draw length. I am shooting this bow off the shelf. According to the charts I saw, using a 125 grain point, it was recommended that I use either a .600 spine carbon or 1816 XX75. I chose to begin the...
