    I've shot a couple of personal best scores the last couple of days. They're nowhere near a lot of you guy's scores but I'm still pretty excited. I shot a 509/600 on the FITA target and a 280 on the NFAA blue face target. I really wasn't expecting either of those but some days things just go...

    I want to suggest a little experiment, and you don't have to answer on the forum if you don't want. Just think about your answer. Again, this is not politically motivated. It is non partisan. One tool to assess issues within a population is to do a personal social sphere assessment. In this...

    An interesting story surfaced regarding the Trump Modeling Agency and using models without work visa's, in fact, actually encouraging falsifying immigration records. It is not my intent to discuss the factual basis of this specific issue, since there is much vetting necessary before we will...

    So my shooting went in the tank the last two weeks. The more I tried and shot, the worse it got. I was very frustrated. It's kinda like golf where swing is off so you start trying different things and it keeps getting worse. Well this morning I decided to go back to basics and break it down...

    This is a personal request for the readership of TT to help with bowhunting in Scotland. As many of you know, Bowhunting in the United Kingdom is totally forbiden and we here in scotland, have excess numbers of deer to the point where we need annual kulls. I think that Bow hunting is a valuable...

    I recently ordered another 21st Century Lone Star longbow. Milton Callaway notified me today by email that he's shipping my bow & he attached these pics to his email. Now that's a cool thing for a bowyer to do! Very nice pics. I can't wait to unpack it & fling some arrows. Clint

    I just browsed this forum a little (I do not spend much time here, just an occasional post, or flurry of posts). As I read through this forum I saw much childish disregard for the spirit and letter of the forum rules regarding personal attacks. I was tempted, time and again, to comment on what...

    Where I work the HR people came out with their new "required" data sheet. Some of the required questions: doctors name and phone number, spouse doctors name and phone number, blood types for spouse and employee, spouses boss's name and phone number. spouse's vehicle information and spouse...

    I took the plunge today and went whole hog. I went against all I know and changed more than one thing at a time. I added the plunger, rest, and new tab all at once. Couldn't remember how to tune the plunger and didn't want to look it up so this is what I did. Screwed it in tight and shot...

    Now don't get me wrong, 'cos I really don't want to sound like Mussolini, but thinking about those BEST grips by Jäger and various other equipment/form details, I started contemplating the often-read words "very individual" or "personal thing". And it struck me that such phrases are rarely used...

    I shot My personal best score today...it was cold-ish, and drizzling rain..the targets were close, and I started off shooting too high...I shot 5 "5's" in the first 10 targets!...I ended up with seven "5's", and still shot a 246 I.B.O. score...Not great by the standards of most of the excellent...

    This isn't archery related so I put it in the watering hole here. I just got home from my first fencing tournament and I won. It wasn't the olympics or anything it was a beginners tournament (less than 1 yr experience). I am very happy because I have only been fencing for 8 weeks and the...

    Like everyone else, I'm still learning my way around the site. I thought maybe we could share a few tricks that we have learned. Does everyone know that we all have personal mailboxes on this site? If you look at the right side of the header at the top of the page, you will see "welcome...
