    I been riser shopping for my 25" and likely a 23" for my wife. To give her an idea of the longer riser with her ult pros I put them on my 21" Morrison heavy riser. She has not shot a bottom heavy or " heavy" riser for that matter. She used to shoot shorts on a Hoyt GM and has now been shooting...

    Hi All, My wife has recently expressed interest in trad recurve shooting and asked for a bow for her birthday ( who wouldn't want that as a present? ). I got excited and started running down options and specs, etc. and when the smoke cleared, this is what she's looking for: - A relatively...

    So I was outside watching my wife shoot Cody's Gen 2 17" and I decided to take a slow mo video to highlight a couple things. When setting up a bow for optimal performance, check where the limb tips are while at full draw. When they are vertical or nearly vertical, like in this case with my wife...

    I have put many reps into the x curves. They perform very well. In parallel to this I am working hard on some fundamental shooting issues. I have my left right alignment worked out. Woohoo! When I shoot outside I shoot behind the house. There is a heavy gauge fence and a wall of honeysuckle...

    I'm new to archery, been practicing on a borrowed Damon Howatt Hunter ([email protected]). My wife went to the local archery store and bought be a new recurve for Christmas. I open the present and it's an October Mountain Products adventure 2.0 bow with 20lb limbs. Wtf? She trusted this salesman and just...

    Here's what is becoming a Christmas Eve tradition for us. It's a one-pot variation of Peking duck, which features sweet potatoes (wonderful with the duck), is much, much simpler to make, and you still get crispy skin, savory meat, and the hoisin-sauce "accompaniment," not to mention deliciously...

    She started off with a Samick Sage 62" 30lb. Now using 35lb. She is 5' tall, has a draw length of 27 inches. We shoot SCA traditional target shooting, using our own wooden arrows that we use the Dynamic Spine Calculator to tweak to customize based on our draw length, bows, etc. She's feeling...

    Wifey expressed a small interest in trying out archery. Good enough for me! Will be building lefty ILF 34# on Trex riser. Her draw length is 24.5". Will most likely be shooting off the shelf with built up hump and adjustable side plate. You guys that have experience with this think an 800...

    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 live in a well populated part of town. Last year, the water company created a 50 yard wide easement for several hundred yards in 'no-mans land' between our subdivision and what used to be a Wal-Mart. After exploring it a bit, I thought it would make a perfect archery range- no visibility from...

    After years of climbing without a major miss-hap, my wife was almost pancaked at our local field club today. We are talking about surviving a sport that names climbs after grease spots, and she almost bites it standing next to our car inspecting her arrows. We had just arrived at the range. I...

    As I dropped her off at the Tampa Amtrak station I told her I would miss her. She said: "No you won't; you need to work on your aim." Like I said: she is a cruel woman. Of course she had been out shooting me recently. [emoji15] Bill

    When the misses and I were on a road trip this summer I told her that I wanted go a little out of our way to overnight in Lancaster PA, then stop in at Lancaster Archery the next morning to look at a few items for me. What I didn't tell her was I was intending on getting her some new arrows too...

    Sizzling sliced beef with sweet tangy vinaigrette sauce over crisp lettuce, tomato and cucumber is absolutely delicious. This authentic Khmer recipe takes more time to prepare but very little time to cook. • Ingredients : ◦ ½ or 1 lb Round or Sirloin beef, sliced thin ◦ ½ Teaspoon soy sauce...

    My wife, Laura, is not retired like her old fart husband. So she can hunt sporadically. I have a stand set up for her that I rarely hunt. It is the best (most active) on our property so I consider it "her" stand as I only hunt it if I know she won't be able to for several days. Yesterday she...

    Made my wife a bow from a cheap fiberglass bow I found. Bolted the limbs I cut off onto a riser I fashioned. Tested it at over 29" for many shots, she is drawing at around 23" so it's safe! Here she is, all 4'10" of her, shooting at around 12m. This is her third day of shooting and she's...

    she made a stew yesterday and today I ate two bowls of it cause it was larapin to say the least and it made me a little gittery! I shot two rounds at the NFAA target with 6 arrows per end and I shot 240 and 243 which is very poor for 6 arrows. Should have been in the 260s! Oh well. I'll just...

    My wife know how much I love shooting tournaments, so today she gave me an early birthday present. It turns out that the NFAA indoor in Lousiville is the same weekend as my birthday and she booked a flight and hotel for me.
