    Went shooting for the first time this year, actually first time in quite a while. I was having back issues, but last spring I was diagnosed with MS. My back and foot pain were from the MS not just getting old and being out of shape. The Covid lockdowns made things worse, couldn't go to work...

    This is unlikely to be of interest to many, but there may be guys like me out there. I like shooting arrows, but resisted fine tuning. I used to paper tune. I hated the process, liked the visual aspect of it though. Too annoying to do often though- I had to set up paper and go through item...

    Once in a while I go out and forget all about my form, aiming strategies, shot cycles, etc and "just shoot". Whenever I do, it's my best shooting.:highfive:

    So the last few nights I’ve managed to get out for 20-30 minutes after the kiddos are in bed (It’s just ticked over daylight savings time here in NZ) towards the end of shootable light I start grouping 3” left from 15y-25y in my back yard. At first I put it down to form break down but now I am...

    We may have had to cancel the spring traditional shoot thanks to the coronavirus chaos, but the summer shoot is still on for this weekend! All bows welcome as always for our summer shoot, but we would love to see as many trad shooters out as possible since we missed our spring shoot. Please...

    Fellowship of the Arrow is looking to host a selfbow 3D shoot in Montpelier, Virginia, just north of Richmond. We have hosted several traditional only shoots and are looking to get more selfbow shooters involved. These shoots would have realistic hunting type shots as well as games such as...

    Going off on a tangent from the "broadhead target"- thread. How much do you shoot with broadheads? And why? Hunting notwithstanding, target shooting only. I only shoot broadheads on a target when tuning a setup, after the bare shaft tuning is done. Just as a final confirmation. And a shot or...

    I'm realizing and had to admit to myself that I'm not going to get my fitness and health back to shooting my Recurve every again. Too much pain and loss of motor function (I cannot even draw my Son 18# Recurve). You can imagine living on a shooting range and not being able to shoot is torture :(...

    I ran across this video from the 2004 World Field Championship. It basically shows all these top level barebow archers from around the world and they all have a different technique. You see everything from just pulling the string back with the arrow pointing at the target to high draws, low...

    I have been using a glove and shoot ok. Been wanting to use a tab for some time. Getting over the face slap and other issues after trying several tabs but they all seem to make me shoot left. Bare shafts for some reason hit center with fletched left. With glove they all hit the center...
