I am building board bows from various materials , getting hold of good straight grain wood has turned out to be harder than I thought so I use whatever I can get hold of.

    I see lots of testimonials of shoulder injuries related to archery as well as other activities and accidents. Three years ago I tore my rotator and the two bicep tendons that connect to the shoulder bone 70 percent. Some bone trimming and two screws took care of it. I was shooting 60ish pounds...

    So I ordered a greatree pride longbow 40 lb. from orange county archery, and the first one I ordered had a crack at the bottom of the handle towards the limbs and I think it was due to the glue they used not being strong enough and its a clean crack not a broken crack. So they ordered me another...

    My shooting for the past two or three years has been fair, but nowhere near the level I once was, nor want to be. Today I spent most of the day dissecting my shot sequence, and evaluating the effect/results I was getting. I have suspected I had a grip problem for a long time now, but was just...
