    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...

    Good news from my physical therapist today. I am making progress with my frozen shoulder. Today was my six week progress report for this stint in therapy. My first stint of five weeks was back in October and November and ended when my diagnosis was changed. I had to take 2 1/2 months off before...

    I recently picked up a soft brace for my shoulder to cushion the bouncing when I run (AC joint still quite tender) and also to protect it once I'm permitted to start bicycling again. The brace is made by a mountain biking company (EVS, very well known) and designed to limit movement that can...

    I've cooked venison many different ways, one of my favorite is roasting a whole hindquarter. I've always hated dealing with the front shoulders trying to filet off the meat which was only good for sausage or jerky. A buddy of mine suggested cooking the entire shoulder and then shredding the...

    So I've been eyeing up some of Moog's FITA scores and targets with no small amount of envy and dissatisfaction with my own attempts. The entitled snowflake in me would quip "Well, he has a Border ILF set up with all manner of snazzy stuff blah blah blah." and while I know better than to listen...

    I was bored today so I did what an average teen would do. I grabbed my Titan 3 with medium 45# trad tech wood/glass limbs and I shot some shoulder blades off my buck. Heres the results off of 3 shots all at 17 yards. First shot was dead center. As you can see, it made it to the golden band in...

    This is a follow-up for those interested in my shoulder therapy. What is interesting is that what felt like a rotator cuff injury turned out to be muscular and fixable with therapy. I was able to get some anatomical specifics today. This is an imbalance of muscles used to articulate the...

    As I have mentioned in a previous post, I am undergoing physical therapy for a long standing shoulder issue. Where I believe this may be interesting to folks is that I had felt certain that I had a significant rotator cuff injury that would possibly require surgery. The physical therapist does...

    I started shoulder therapy today. The first visit is the evaluation, massage and a few exercises. My shoulder injury, which affects my bow arm shoulder, was incurred about 20 years ago while learning to play golf. I was pretty sure that I had significant tendon damage. I had gone through a short...

    Shoulder started to play up again Sat :cussing:, it's the very top part, put you hand on the spot, raise arm and rotate I can feel grinding on the top part (not inside the joint) I imagine it's muscle/tendons getting caught and releasing as the joint in moving around and feels like a sharp nerve...

    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...

    Have others been forced to change shot sequence or draw weight after injury? Shoulder surgery meant I lost 3 months shooting and must now sell my 55# AFB. Fortunately some physical therapy and the benefits of a good bowyer have not forced me to give up a hobby of 39 years. My form isn't...
