    So I thought to myself, after watching more Hayes vids, "I really should give this 3-under business a go". I immediately learned three things: 1. My nose doesn't like my bowstring. 2. My bowstring really likes my nose. 3. I really torque the bowstring on the draw. I went back to shooting...

    Hey guys I have a weird situation. I have a bow and two grips. One causes no issue, but the other sends shooting pain through my ring finger instantly upon drawing the bow. It's not a major problem because I have the other grip, but I'm curious if anyone else has experienced anything like that?

    Over the past few months I have been coming back from a year or so of being incapacitated by goofed up shoulders, caused by non-archery activity. My exercise regimen and shooting practice with light bows has paid off, and this week I returned to shooting a hunting weight recurve. My form is...

    Took me two weeks to set 46 X 3D's twice as long as normal, I listened to my body and rested when I needed. Had 5th round of Chemo yesterday, Doc is happy with progress and after the 6th I shouldn't need Chemo for 9 months is blood numbers keep stable. My legs were in a bad way, cancer all the...

    Hi everyone, Recently just got back into bows after 12 years off. When I was a teenager I used to hunt with compound. But just picked up a longbow about 3 weeks ago. Since buying the bow I have been shooting about 4 times a week. It is a 45# Fleetwood frontier. I am really loving shooting the...

    One solution leads to another problem... lol. This indoor season I focused a lot on cleaning up and refining my shot process. I also began stringwalking. I've experienced dramatic improvements in my accuracy and consistency over the last six months. However, I've had a nagging pain in the...

    Hi all, I am adding barebow to my archery competitive bag o’ fun, and am trying to switch from a glove to a tab so I can do string crawl. I shoot longbows now with an American Leathers Big Shot which is perfect for my fingers. It feels great. I’m trying to switch to a Yost tab with my...

    For the past year I have been getting pain/tenderness in the first knuckle of my middle finger on the hand I draw with. Not sure what could cause it, but I cant seem to get past it. I use a Rod Jenkins tab. I just ordered a Talon 4 from Roger but still want to get back to my normal tab if...

    I just recently switched from a 62" bow to 58" and now I am getting some pain in my ring finger. I am shooting the same tab and three under as I always have at 27". Is it normal for pain to increase this much with only 4" shorter bow at only 27 inches? Thanks, Boswell

    But how much pain is okay? I started shooting my longbow regularly for short periods of time. To get used to the draw weight. After shooting it my back muscles ache, but my arm muscles don't. So I guess that's a good sign. I also feel the bony tips of my shoulders ache. Where the tendons are...

    Gentlefolk...I didn't loose many shots from my 66"/37# Horizon Target Rig this weekend...matter fact?...since swapping my instinctive snap shooting ways...(that would typically see me launching about 150-200 shots in a 90min-2hr session).....for a far more disciplined execution where I'm only...

    I started shooting a little over two weeks ago. I'm shooting a Mission Craze II. Just starting out I'm only at a 28 pound draw at 25 inches. About a week (if that) after I started shooting I started having real bad sharp pain in my bow shoulder. I talked to the guys about it at my local archery...

    I didn't see a more applicable category for this topic so I'm putting here. Thanks fellers. The pain is like a sharp needle in my third finger where it wraps the string. It is sharp. The odd thing is it only happens on the first draw. After that no pain at all. Weird huh?........Ray

    I've never had elbow problems- pitching batting practice, shooting compounds- nothing every affected it. I think the way I'm shooting my recurve is affecting it and though i plan on seeing my Doc is if persists, i'm thinking there are enough guys with experience here to illuminate me. I'm...

    I started shooting a Titan 2 several months ago. I added a very low grip to the riser. Im only pulling 43# which is less than all of my other bows. Here is the problem, I have developed severe elbow pain, to the point of if I shoot the bow I am unable to sleep that night due to the pain. I have...

    I have had a left shoulder problem for about a decade. I had an issue getting the bow drawn passed the first 12" making matters worse all the top of the line recurve limbs were getting more and more preload. Making my hunting life harder. I had an idea that if I had a set of long bow limbs...

    So I've been working hard to use my back during the draw and shot. I've used the formaster and I can draw the bow with it no problem and also shoot it just like you are supposed to. However I'm still having some pain in the front part of my string shoulder when I get to full draw. Also my...
