    I am curious what are some of the silly litttle things that turn you away from bows or equipment. I know I have some of my own pet peeves that make no real sense but they always make me think twice about buying. 1. Archery coins or medallions. I actually like them on a bear bow but can’t get...

    Back in December 2014 I posted this question. It seems appropriate to revisit the question now that we are hunkered down protecting ourselves. What are some of the things you have damaged shooting indoors? By indoors, I mean in your basement, hallway, bathroom, etc. I have never shot an arrow...

    when I login, it takes me directly to main forum, where it used to show the roster of forums. ALSO, bold font is gone from new (unread) threads, but only on main forum. THis began happening around 2 weeks ago. my browser is Google Chrome.

    I just started my 10th week of therapy and I am starting to get the go ahead to carefully do some of the activities that have been put on hold, though I was told to avoid repetitive motion. That means not more than a few shots with a bow, but I can climb if I am careful not to push my shoulder...

    I know that most everybody here is actually serious about their hunting and competition. But that doesn't also mean that we don't like to just have fun once in a while. I've just added a couple of "fun" pieces to our online store. We now have whistling points plus some adapters that would allow...

    Hello All, I'm moving into an old building that will be my new workshop space. I'll be building a workbench and shave horse for the shop. Are there any features for archery that could be incorporated into the design of these two shop appliances? Perhaps a longer bed on the shave horse for...

    Things are Heating Up at Camera Land Been speaking with lots of folks about many different products. Seems more people are becoming aware of how awesome Kowa Spotting Scopes and Binoculars are. The new TSN-553/TSN-554 15-45x55 Prominar Pure Florite Spotting Scope is amazing. Less than 11"...

    I have a collection of mid 19th century bows and arrows. As most will know, the Victorian era target archer matched his arrows to his bow by weight rather than spine. He/she also balanced the mass of the arrow with high density hard wood footings rather than the pile. Here's a typical example...

    I have been working hard to develop a shot process that is repeatable and beneficial for 3d. I have learned to raise my anchor and maintain good alignment. I am also working on a shot process that has clear start stop elements that I am hoping I can rely on in competition. Blah blah blah, I...

    The proof that it is impossible to think of two things at once (particularly archery) . . . "Human multitasking is an apparent human ability to perform more than one task, or activity, over a short period (1 hour). An example of multitasking is taking phone calls while typing an email and...

    You guys that tinker and test with a lot of stuff, what's the fastest material used to make high performance strings both for recurves and R&D longbows?

    So a newbie to ILF guy (like me) acquires a used riser that appears to be in great shape. After you're finished drooling over the new item - what things do you check/inspect to make sure the riser is ok to mount limbs and string up into a bow? thanks. jc

    Last summer my wife and I took a cruise around the Baltic region. One of our stops was the beautiful city of Helsinki Finland. We were only there for a single day, but we liked it so much we've decided to return for a longer visit for my 60th birthday.. So if anyone has any experience of the...

    When you find a riser length to make your warf, one with a grip to your liking you need to consider the exsisting limb pad angle. Sure you can go diy or buy plates but most all of these builds are parallel to the existing face. If it is a steep angle it will preload and move the stack point...
