    I've always* shot Olympic recurve with a clicker or compound with a thumb trigger release used properly (hauling on the wall until the shot breaks, rather than punching it) and the thing with both of those is that you aim to develop a "surprise" or subconscious release. 1) How should I go about...

    A long time ago I had a few bows and usually ended up losing all my arrows. Sometimes that "Instinctive Shooting" worked, but the house odds usually prevailed... About a year ago I got interested in Archery again, carved a few self-bows and experimented around before deciding to just get a...

    Wife brings the mail in the other night and lets me know there's a Priority Mail package that arrived for me...I wondered what it was because I simply wasn't expecting any packages as everything I ordered for gifts had already arrived. I was actually a little apprehensive about opening the box...

    Just wonder. I shoot instinctively which mean I anchor and hold perhaps about a second till my body tell me that everything is properly aligned before I release. I do not consciously aware of the mechanism of release. But I do aware of when to release. A friend of mine suggest that I should...

    I got this 17" ILF wood riser lately, bought it used from jerseyboy. Not a big name riser, so it's been sitting here a short while without seeing action. I got to comparing woods, and it's a respectably close looking match to my Sky longbow limbs. I hung them on it, scrounged through the strings...

    I recently traded some carbon-wood ILF limbs in return for some Uukha XO 32# longs which I wanted to pair with my Fantom riser for target work. When I originally did a search of Uukha's it was pretty hard to find any info at all on the web so I thought I'd just put this little blurb up for...

    I received a riser from a friend. Was told it was a Morrison riser that was dipped in a grey camo. Well being curious I started to scrape the finish off and Walla! Out popped this gorgeous Rosewood riser. Erich

    I decided to take a stress-relief break from the ol' computer and drawings. My breaks generally consist of shooting arrows. When I went to pull, I found this nestled up to a hay bale next to the target that I was shooting at. Considering the way that I shoot, this little booger was quite...

    My Hoyt Ram Hunter riser came with a Springy rest with an unknown weight spring on it. I shoot 45-50# cedar on my other bows, so I wanted to bare-shaft tune this bow with 55# Quinn limbs on it (Thanks, BTC). I haven't scaled it yet, but it feels around 50#. With the spring rest the arrows showed...

    The local paper posted an article dated 09-19-08 that the city counsel was preparing to pass an ordinance that banned archery in the City of Surprise, unless it was at an approved range. There are no ranges in our city. I sent a letter to my representative, and have posted it below, along with...
