    A few months ago Nance and I received an e-mail from Pip Bickerstaffe saying that he would be going on a road trip to Germany early november and that he would love to stop by to visit us. Pip also offered that while he's here he would give a lecture about the history of English archery and...

    I started the process of tuning my stringwalking bow today. I had done some bareshaft tuning but today I started the Tuning for Tens method. Previous bareshaft testing had shown that 600's were working better than 500's. I had never shot a shaft that weak before and only had the 600 for testing...

    As some may recall?...I splurged about a year ago by buying a new grill where as badly as I wanted "The Big Green Egg"?...I couldn't bring myself to dropping around $900 for one where initially I thought these ceramic lined caldrons were only about $600 but with the stand (an other amenities)...

    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...

    I'm a lefty that has drank the ILF kool-aid. I really like the idea, and if it's a riser that lends itself to shooting off the shelf I see very few negatives to it. I'm trying to get my stable up for my wife and brother in law to shoot (and actually enjoy) archery. I have two sets of limbs...

    I recently purchased off eBay a PSE Classic takedown recurve 64" 55# @28", it's new and for under a 100 I figured why not, always wanted to target shoot with a recurve. So this is new venture for me and best I can find via Google is carbon series 400 shafts should work, haven't looked up...

    Guess I haven't been here in awhile. I had shoulder rotator cuff surgery in June and just now starting to shoot a 40# bow and forging again. A few years ago I picked up two Damascus billets from the Alabama Damascus scrap pile at the BladeShow. I threw them in my throw away blade box and...
  11. Bow Projects
    Getting ready to start the project. I love big power tools! I took off about 1/4" width of the shelf and 5/8" length. The whole bow has been sanded down with 220 grit sandpaper. Ordered the inlay. The next step is to install it when it arrives. Strung it up for some testing and it is...

    Hello all, my kids have recently shown interest in archery so I bought them a cheap $20 bow set. What types of things would you suggest to have them focus on while learning that can keep them from bad habits later on? Bow is a small recurve neither of them seem to struggle to bring to full draw...

    I was just wondering how long has everyone been shooting bows? Compounds, longbows, recurves anything! I started shooting when I was two years old!! I've been in love with it ever since!

    Hello everyone, I was thinking seriously about trying string walking and ILF bows for 3-d around here. I have never used metal riser bows and shot with my bow vertical. I always shot 3 under and canted my bow. I always shot by gapping at the bow and was pretty consistent out to about 25 to...

    Man, I'd been having withdrawals from a good 3D course, I shot the ten ring out of my own target in two month's time, but had the chance to get back in the saddle Sunday. Our 3D group, Downeast Archery Coalition, had their first point shoot yesterday. Great course and a pretty good...
