    HI all, I am new to archery. I am shooting a Monarch (sage) 62" with 29# limbs. I have about a 28.5" draw and am shooting Fleetwood carbon 700's with 100 tips. I am shooting off the rest. I have done some hunting (rifle/shotgun)and am familiar with the importance of consistent mounts and the...

    So I bought my first ILF bow. Purchased low poundage limbs for training. I read that before you even think about tuning your bow or arrows you need to have decent form. I understand hand placement posture, consistent repeatable anchor, back tension, stiff bow arm. Where should I start as far as...

    I'm shooting a PSE Ghost recurve with 45lb limbs. I draw 28in and am shooting easton 2016 full length with 165 grain Zwickey No Mercy broads. My problem is I'm consistently shooting to the right of where I'm looking. Trying to figure this out.

    My question- medium limbs? Or long limbs. I am new to archery. On a whim I picked up an OMP Smokey Mountain Hunter recurve in December. After five months now of consistent shooting and research I have decided I like this enough to go a little deeper. What I like doing is roaming around the...

    I took up archery for the first time this spring, and have since been shooting recurve. I have never shot a longbow or a compound for that matter, though I am definitely curious to try both. So, in a nutshell, can someone please explain the advantages and disadvantages of a longbow as compared...

    Here goes the same spiel I'm sure most of you have heard a 100 times on here. I'm new to the trad world, so to say, in that I have been shooting compound but am switching over to the traditional world. I shot cheap glass recurves and longbows in the 70's and 80's when I was a kid and then hadn't...

    Hey lads, Let me introduce myself firstly, my name is James and I'm from Lara, Australia (about 50km's from Melbourne). I've been shooting trad bows off and on since I was a young tacker. In fact I've never shot a compound and probably never will. I'm new to the ILF world and would like a little...

    I've been lurking for a while and just got a 70's bear kodiak magnum. It came with a string but I want a new one. What size do I get? And which quiver? I'm sure I'll be asking a lot of questions in the near future!! Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Hi, I am considering buying a compound bow as a change from my recurves. I do not know a great deal about the mechanics of a compound bow and have only shot two or three over the years, finger release. One thing I noticed with the bows I shot and hope this does not sound as daft as it reads but...

    I have this old Hoyt Pro Medalist TD2 (I think) and need to put some ILF limbs on it. I should be able to do this with just some new limb bushings, right? Is there anywhere I can get these bushings that will fit the Hoyt thumbscrews other than 3Rivers? (They've priced them at $25 + a very steep...

    Hi folks, I'm new to the forum and somewhat new to traditional archery. I've bow hunted with a wheel bow for the better part of the last 30 years and taken nearly 80 whitetails in Illinois and Missouri during that time span. One of those deer was a doe that means as much to me as many of the...

    We are expecting some wet weather in the coming days and I would like to know what I might be able to find at say a hardware store or Walmart to use for water proofing my feathers? Something like a silicone spray of sorts. I know Gateway sells a powder to apply but no one around carries it in...

    Hi, first off sorry for the long post, I have many questions to ask. I have been bow hunting with a compound bow for 14 years now and I am ready to take the plunge into traditional archery. About 4 years ago I bought a custom made 30# flat bow from kees longbows just to mess around with but I...

    G' day Credit to you all for a great source of information, product reviews and experiences. So I'm new to this and wishing I had found this sport 20 years ago. Some background I live in a remote area of West Australia, the nearest supply shop is 1000 miles and so is the nearest clup or coach. I...

    Hi Guys, A long time lurker from years back. I planned to try Olympic recurve 5 years ago but some health problems overtook my plan. Now that I have fully recovered I now plan to pursue trad shooting. I gave my Hoyt Horizon to my son who also wants to start archery and I bought a Hoyt Excel 21"...

    I and my son have dove into recurve shooting this summer and having a blast. I am wanting to make endless loop strings and have been researching only to end up confused and frustrated. I have mainly older Bear bows and I understand they need dacron b50 strings on them. I use 14 strand strings...
