    And then seems so obvious when you figure it out. First it was the move to a tab. Took me like 6 months and now I have no idea why I had problems with it in the first place and would never shoot a glove again. Same with a high anchor. Been trying forever and giving up. Today after about 400...

    Should be a fun weekend. And I am supposed to go turkey hunting. But new bow plus rain may just keep me shooting indoors. Lol

    Hey y'all, I've noticed it takes me about 30 minutes to an hour to get into the groove of things, my shots will be all over and about at the halfway mark my groupings get significantly tighter. Is this just because I haven't been shooting for many years maybe I don't have a sequence quite down...

    So?...yes..I love my WF19 I've affectionately dubbed "The Demon Slayer"...and with this risers integral shelf hump?...it's DNA wreaks of trad hence pretty much demands setting it up to be shot..."Off-The-Shelf"...with many claiming it very near "Blasphemous" to use a plunger/flipper type of...

    My friend back in the Yukon took this beauty....waiting for the story yet. It was a compound but his first animal I think. I was helping him shoot his longbow before I left but it wasn't a very good one and way tooooooo heavy even though he is a big guy. I hunted bears with him too and he took...

    Blind Archer Takes Aim! Blind Archer I have macular degeneration and low vision, so I found a lot of inspiration in this article! This lady is truly a real winner.

    Rod said she was "fryer size" but she was nursing so I assume 2 year old TN doe. First deer I've killed with my Fox.

    Saw this on the news tonite. Anybody want to argue now that composites ain't tough stuff? Everybody on board survived this crash! Now if W-W would just make an Inno riser in 19 inches...

    My cup runneth over. I was fortunate enough to get #5 this morning. It was drizzling rain during the night but let up at about 5:00 am. I climbed in a tree and listened to the drip drip drip until 6:45 when 3 does came up the ridge. They were headed straight for my tree. The lead doe walked...

    At 6:48 this morning a single doe came feeding down the ridge. At 10 yards she gave me a quartering shot. The Wensel Woodsman blew right through her and her far leg was back and the arrow went right through the foreleg. About 5 min. later a 6 pointer came in and he saw the doe which only made...

    It was a great days shooting at the Florida traditional championships during the first week of March. The Florida weather was in the mid 70s and dry just about the most perfect competition conditions one could hope for, and for the first time that a few of the animals were set out at a distance...

    Took him with my Master Hunter, 56# @ 30" Win Ex Mediums, G5 Montec broadhead on the end of a 31" Gold Tip 55/75, with a total weight of 420 grains. 18 yard broadside shot, both lungs and the top of the heart, complete pass through, and a 60 yard recovery. Just thought I'd share last weekends...

    I got my first bow on the 10th and of course I immediately set up a target in the basement. 8 yards. Although I was hitting the foam cube, the point of impact was inconsistant. So when the weathered finally cleared and I took it outside I wasn't too confident about increasing the distance. But...

    At it's simplest, hitting a target with a bow and arrow - or any projectile for that matter, requires 2 things. 1. Shooting in a straight line directly at the target. 2. Properly adjusting the angle of trajectory for the distance being shot. That's it. If those two things are done...

    Ok some of you guys know I have been putting together a longbow out of spare parts. :) Well it is shooting and will be ready for the final finish in a few days.It is shooting pretty good so I had to do some number crunching this morning.Both are right at 47#s.Close enough considering I draw a...

    Torsten is not permitted to bowhunt moose in Finland. So he does the next best thing. He kills one in bow range, with his rifle! Here's the brief description in his words: Ehmmm, no bow. Bow-hunting on moose is not allowed in Finland. Male calf, about 100 kg. They came "flying" at me, cow...
