    I ordered a DAS ILF longbow. 17" riser with 40# long limbs making a 62" bow. I've never shot anything other than off the shelf with any traditional equipment. After listening to experienced shooters on this forum, I have managed to put my ego in check and shoot lower poundage (ironically I...

    I wanted to see what you guys thoughts was on this. Especially those who are shooting low poundage. Or always have... I have been shooting trad since I was young and there are some durations or times during those years I didn't shoot trad all way through. But still shot compounds regularly...

    I’m brand new to archery. I recently purchased a #35 Sage Elite from Lancaster. I want to hunt eventually, but I want to make sure I learn the right way. This is an easy and cheaper way to gradually increase weight. My approximate draw length is 30”. At Lancaster’s recommendation, I purchased...

    So my friend had me do some tests today and he claims that I’m left-eye dominant. I have better vision out of my left eye also. I’ve always done certain tasks ambidextrously but shoot right handed. I ALWAYS miss left, especially when gap shooting. If I miss I miss left, not right. Maybe part of...

    Well I am converting. So with that said its something I've wanted to do for a long time and I finally did it. While practicing with a relatively light FB Grizzly setup at 41lbs. I noticed shooting with fingers it created a lot of discomfort in my forearm. I broke that arm a few years back and...

    So I have been shooting trad for 5 months. I bought a cheapy cabelas warden recurve 62" 50lbs. The string has started to fray and I wanted a replacement one. So I found one on amazon that said 62 AMO and got it. It was about one inch short from the original string and my brace height lengthened...

    The reason I'm addressing this to Easy is awhile back I posted how distraught I was that a buck I was targeting had gotten killed on a road near my house. I really thought it was my target buck because he was gone. I went from seeing him to him vanishing I was mortified I've chosen to target...

    Inspired by Moose's 3D post I thought to solicit some comments on the following: What advise would you give a target shooter trying to learn to excel at unmarked 3D? For this question I ask that you not describe what YOU do, or how YOU shoot, but rather consider how a target shooter shoots and...

    Hey everyone, new shooter here, coming from a 60-70lb compound, RH, decided to go traditional and LH (since I'm left eye dominant). After watching copious youtube videos and reading this site and others, I took the wisdom of the "elders" and went with a 35# LH Samick Sage. I pull 25-26", so in...

    In the "Define good shooting" thread Steve Morley Said this: "Someone who can still smile when they make a bad shot, the better you get the harder it is to accept the bad shots as you are pushing your personal boundaries." This got me thinking because I view what Steve said as the definition...

    While it might not come as a surprise to many of you, it shocked the heck out of me. I bought a Morrison gen 2(?) 19" riser a hand full of years ago when I switched to left handed. The riser was inexpensive at the time and Bob was a daily contributor to the site. I had cheap low poundage...

    A hunter brags about the largest animal shot. A target shooter would brag about the smallest????

    I'm new to this site and am considering getting into competitive shooting. My interests lie in more of the "traditional" aspects of archery meaning sticking with a hunting type of R/D longbow, recurve, or D shape longbow, no stabilizers, plunger rests, etc. Is there a class for such? If so...

    What is your set up and how do you aim with a longbow? As I understand it, you aren't allowed to face walk and am struggling to come up with an accurate aiming style. Thanks. Alan
