    Give me your tired, poor, huddled limbs yearning to breath free 😂 Need a cheap pair of limbs for a student. 16-18# medium ILF. As long as they're safe to shoot quality and aesthetics aren't an issue. Don't want to spend more than ~$50, less if they're really beaten up. Let me know what you...

    Belonged to one of my students who no longer needs them. Overall in pretty good condition. Limb tips are excellent. To my surprise, only 2 very small dings on the limb edges (attempting to show in pictures) and they don't make it to the laminate layer. The limb pockets have normal wear on the...

    Hello. I've picked up archery over the summer and have yet to actually get to a teacher to see what I'm doing right or wrong -- just a lot of YouTube videos.

    I just picked up my first compound bow for bowhunting next fall. I have very limited experience with shooting a recurve in school, but I am basically a total beginner.

    Hi guys! I’m new to archery, and the more research I do the more confused I get. I have two recurves (Bear Grizzly 55# and Sage Elite 40#) and over the last month or so I shoot a few times a week.

    So I just got into archery and have only been to a range once with my friend. It was the best, and I'm excited to start target shooting in my backyard! I did find out though that I'm left-eye dominant, even though I'm right-handed. Any suggestions? Should I learn to shoot left-handed (I have to...

    Let me know if the slow motion gifs do not work! Disregard the odd background setting, yes I practiced safety during this. We all get rainy days don't we?
