    The weather let up today so I got outside and did a little more center shot tuning. I installed a new strike plate bolt and needed to fine tune. After a couple adjustments, I was able to get it dialed in. I start by bare shaft tuning to get everything flying good. Then I shoot at 20 and...

    With the UK clout season now in full swing and a rove coming up in Germany in a couple of weeks time, I though it would be a good idea to get some 180 yard practice.

    Looking to set up my bow for a local 3D tourny. It will be out to 30 yards max with unmarked distances. The majority of shots will be in the 22 to 27 yard area with the occasional 30 or 30+ yard shot to keep us honest. I was thinking of raising my nock to a 25 yard point on. But I'm wondering...

    I was wanting to do 20 arrows at 20 yards, but it is snowing and blowing today, so it is 10 arrows at 10 yards. It is more fun at 20 yards, but this will have to do for today. Nice to see a fairly consistent impact point.

    I recently had the opportunity to go train with some Korean archers at their traditional military training distance of 145 meters (158 yards). Definitely a unique experience compared to the typical North American trad 3D/hunting experience. I shot using both thumb draw (right side) and...

    Havent shot bow for 25 years recently bought a Dalaa 17" riser with 45# limbs. I used to shoot split finger but the index finger pinch is very bad. I switched to 3 under for a try and I love it! My accuracy has improved immensely! However the bow now shoots about 12-15" low with three under and...

    Hi all - what is a reasonable group for say 6 arrows at 20 yards using an unsighted bow? I'm not talking about podium winning accuracy - I mean what would you consider "acceptable" for a moderately practiced individual? I'm certainly still in the novice stage - so 6 x arrows on a good group...

    What would you determine from this? This is 5 yards to 40 yards in 5 yard increments. Point on the dot for all 8 shots. After warming up good, I did this a half dozen times with the same results each time. What I mean by the same results is - within reasonably close to the same groups. This...

    Here is a few tips that you can use. Not theory. If you are standing in a brightly lit spot and shooting at a target that is in dark surroundings (shadows, etc.), you will normally judge the distance to be longer than what it really is. If you are in dark surroundings and the target is...

    How come 20 yards looks different depending on where I am shooting? At my local shop 20 yards looks pretty close but it still seems to take a few steps to get to the targets. Then I go to my field range with target butts every 5 yards and it looks ridiculously close. The 30 yard butt feels like...

    so i shoot at 35 perfectly well enough to hunt but at 40 yards mentally it seems soo much further and i cant even hit bag target some of the time, is this just a mental game or is there something wrong with my form preventing me from being accurate past 35

    My youngest and I were stalking this hideous boar when I got the wild hair to take 5 shots behind my back. We were charged no less than 5 times when I shot and I was thankful and pleasantly surprised to stop each charge with one of the white fletched arrows! Ethan managed to stop alot of...

    This is my second (and) best end of 4. DAS 52lbs. @ 30" 3 Beman ICS Hunters .400 grain uncut w/ 3.5" feathers and 125 grains up front. 1 redline .520 with similar fletching and field tip. Not an optimized rig, just what I had on hand. I took the SRF off the other day so I was a bit rusty...

    I CAN hit the broad side of the barn from 60 yards See..... In case this picture isn't worth 1000 words, Gold Tip arrows are very, very tough. I got a pass through on the first rib, and the point stuck into the next rib. Pulled the arrow out and it was not damaged. The target was at 60...

    Hi all, I was shooting one of my bows 19" morrison riser at 47# with a shorty plunger and flipper rest all the arrows were going to the left around 3" at that short distance, so I turned the plunger all the way back towards the riser and they seemed to work better, but the bow is not in the...

    Hopefully this isn't viewed as too silly of a question. I've just gotten an older used bow setup...its spitting out arrows good. I'm working towards consistency and proficiency at 20 yards. However, coming from shooting a compound, I'm used to greater distances. While I'm not lookin for...

    I have not made any real organized effort at tuning this bow. It's 48 lbs at my 29 1/2" draw, shooting Redline 460's with 100 grains up front. I eyeballed my nocking point to be 1/4" or less high, and I've not kept up with brace height. I've not played with the plunger at all. I have fiddled...

    :( I was just reading that the max distance for the ibo longbow division is 25 yards why???? RU class is 30 what is up with these distances??? I much prefer nfaa and there 40+ yard set-ups I mean why limit the shots so much?? I just don't see it? I for one don't see 3-d archery as hunting...
