    Hi all! I'm an OR shooter newly getting into longbows -- took a trad class at my local club and I am hooked! Haha. Definitely ready to buy my own. For the past several weeks I've been practicing with one of the club's bows, a LH 68" Klaus viper (I believe) longbow 30#. My draw length on that...
  2. Arrows & Strings
    I am thinking about fletching my own arrows. Do I need to distinguish a cock vain with a different color than my two hen vanes? Or can I just make all my vanes the same color and not worry about which vain is facing up each time I shoot? Thanks!
  3. Mathews Archery Discussion
    Hey everyone, I wanted your thoughts on a situation I've found myself in here. I bought my Z7 as my first bow about 2 years ago and have loved every second with it. I was heartbroken to see that the bottom limb (the Z7 uses SE4 limbs) has a BAD crack in it. Definitely not going to risk shooting...
  4. F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    These are three components I just don't understand the differences between. What makes one clicker better/more expensive than another when they are all basically just a thin, slightly flexible piece of metal? I've read articles claiming that inexpensive plastic arrow rests are sometimes...

    I just recently started doing archery, and I'm in the process of getting my first bow (!). I'm focusing on recurve, trying to get into Olympic recurve, and one thing I can't figure out is what draw weight I should be using. The range I've been renting a barebow at has been giving me 24# draw...
  6. F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    I'm just starting out with archery and recently decided on going with Olympic recurve as what I focus on, so I've started looking at parts I would need for my first bow. Talking to the guys at my local range, the general consensus there is that I should be getting a 27" riser (since I'm about...
  7. Traditional Archery
    I've only gotten into archery recently, and I'm still trying to figure out what style I want to invest my time and money into most. I've rented compounds from my local shop a number of times now, and was getting quite consistent with them over a short distance at their indoor range. I just took...
  8. Traditional Archery
    In advance: forgive me if I say some dumb things. I am very new to archery and am still unsure of what everything is. I am currently looking for some new arrows as my old ones have been lost and broken over my past year of shooting. I use a 66in 30# recurve bow and used to use Gold Tip...
  9. Hoyt Archery Discussion
    Basically I have been fairly new to archery and been shooting my current bow (edge 320) almost every day now. I am curious if its worthwhile to upgrade as a newer shooter to a flagship bow? Will I notice the differences? What is the actual difference generally? For other gear I am running a...
  10. General Archery Discussion
    Hey guys, I am fairly new to hunting and I really want to get into archery next year. I really have no idea where to start looking as I am unsure about what all the different dimensions listed under different bows mean (in terms of how it will feel and shoot for me personally). I am 6'5" with a...
  11. General Archery Discussion
    Hey guys been doing some research on bows the last couple months trying to figure out what would be best for getting into the world of bow hunting. Ive been to the local shops and scanning the classified for awhile. Was curious about what your thoughts were on purchasing a used bow? The guy at...
  12. WELCOME! New User Forum
    I am new to the archery world. I’ve started with bare bow and do enjoy it! I need advice on bows/equipment/coaching and so on. What brands and items I would need to invest in. As of now I am just shooting recreationally but I do have interest in going competitive one day when I’m a lot better...
  13. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Sub Forums
    So I've picked up bowhunting this year, and I've been enjoying it so far. Archery has made me more aware of my body, the woods have opened my eyes to life that I never even knew existed, and I now know more about my local area than ever before. It's been a great ride so far, and if I don't see a...

    I currently have a vikera cam (70 buck camera) and an old 2010 moultrie, and am wanting more cams, but for a teen without a job its a bit hard and im wanting to get a few more. If anyone could recommend a cheaper(60 and under) cam that works good from experience that would be great!

    Hey! I’m new here, and just now getting into archery. I’ve gotten some good tips so far, but trying to work on my accuracy and grouping. Would love to hear tips from all of y’all!
  16. General Archery Discussion
    Paper tuned with bare shaft and fletching at 7'. Now I'm trying to group tune at 20 yds. I'm getting some inconsistent impact points with bare shafts. None are totally out of whack but some days I'm getting slight right impact, others slight left and one day slight high. Stuff like this...

    I'm currently looking at the hoyt helix turbo, the hoyt rx4 turbo and the rx4 alpha. I'm curious to what everyone view on these are. My DL is on the shorter side at 28in so I know that impacts my decision some. Just want to hear everyone's experience and opinion on these 3 or if you have another...

    Hello all! Just purchased my first compound. Been on the fence for a Powermax for a few weeks now, but I was walking through the Bass Pro Outlet Store in Springfield, Missouri...all bows (x-bows, compounds, trads) were an additional 25% off. I found a Diamond Deploy SB, 29”/70lbs RAK package...
  19. General Archery Discussion
    Hi I am Flo and after 1 1/2 years of archery I decided to use a Chronograph to take some measures because my friends are kinda surprised how my bow shoots. I do 3D and Taget archery with the same bow. Riser: WIN WIN TFT-G Limbs: MK-MX 38# long /Win win limbs felt wobbly to me. MK limbs draw...
  20. Ravin Crossbow Discussion
    I purchased an R20 a few weeks ago and am absolutely loving it. However, I have encountered something strange when shooting at different ranges. I followed the sight-in instructions and the CB is dead-on between 20 and 70 yards. Then it slowly creeps up the target, inching its way up to...
