skin

    For most of us I guess summer is here now so plenty of shooting going on. Just a bit of advice, wear sunscreen and hats out there. I’ve just had to have something unpleasant removed and while there they gave me a complete skin check. It seems the constant use of nose tape and the light brushing...

    Anyone know how long a set of skins will last stored? I am in the process of moving and found a set I had forgotten about. They are copperhead and have been sitting stored for probably at least 8 years. Would these still be usable and if so for how long?

    I am waiting on a new CH riser. Previously I used a leather strip rest and a Bear 1959 strike plate. Considering seal hair for such instead. Where do you get the seal hair rests that I see some folks using?

    I have used Seal skin on my recurves for years. However, most of you know it is banned. Is there any other shelf material that is similar? Is there anyone that has PRE-BAN Seal skin for sale? Thanks for any comments..

    Got a really nice pair of canebrake skins from a good friend down south and I'd like to back a couple of my longbows. This is a DIY thing, I'm looking for tutorials if anyone can share some good ones. Also wondering if anyone has experience with a particular glue that works well...'preciate any...

    It seems most of my best shots require that i lose a bit of skin off the end of my nose. I know that i should have my head turned to the target and centred on my body but, as I get more and more intent, my nose feels it has to be a part of things. Remarkably, hitting my schnozz doesn't seem to...

    A while back I saw a picture of Jinksters new bow and found out it had seal skin on the shelf. I mention in passing how I'd like to get hold of some and low and behold YONONINDO sent me a message saying he had got hold of some and would be sending some my way. Well it arrived today and needless...

    My hard drive died, back up after 2 days of stripping files to an ext HD. I can't find the option to change the skin back to the classic view. It used to be on the Bottom Left of the screen. Help, don't like the look of whatever I have dave

    Those are my 3 options. As I've dropped bow weight, I've been able to expand my draw length. That's good. Faster arrows, bone on bone anchor, etc.... Problem is, and I posted this a couple weeks ago, the tied string nocks are hitting my face, and making a nickel sized bloody spot on my...

    Seen a lot of pic's of snake skin backed limbs on here and other sites, but never in the flesh. How's it done, are the skins laid over a finished limb then clear lacquered, or are they under clear glass. ****

    Well, I just removed the skins from my winex limbs. I did a little searching and saw a few different methods suggested and went for it. I carefully peeled them off leaving them intact. Next, I put them in very warm water and let them soak for about a half hour to soften the glue. I used...

    Thanks to 4Nolz, I am finishing up putting a set of timber rattler snake skins on my beloved Dryad Epic limbs. The project had a few bumps in the road, as I was learning how to do it. But, in the end, I was happy with the results. I'll need to put a few more coats of urethane on the limbs...

    Would you guys do me a favor and send large pictures to my email address of snake skins. I am working on a project with a friend, and need the larger pictures, but full length. They can be imitation or real pictures of snake skins. I would like several different types. My email is...

    During the cleanup after Katrina in my back woods I came across a full grown copperhead. My son Noah (8yrs old) thought the snake was way cool. I would like to skin the snake and put on a board for him. Any suggestions on how one might do this...

    I use a Damascus shooting glove and I think they're great. The soft leather really lets me feel the string well, and I like that. But my biggest gripe with them is that the leather bunched up at the tip (from where they sewed it together), kinda messess with your anchor. It's hard to feel your...
