  1. Bare Shaft Tuning Distance

    Bow Tuning
    I have a question about bare shaft tuning. So far I have done: Bare shaft tune at 5, then 10, then 20 meters using the yoke. Shooting 3 fletched & 2 bare shaft arrows & getting good groups. The bare shafts have electrical tape wrapped around the same position as the fletching, so all arrows are...
  2. How to shoot unmarked 3d with olympic recurve bow

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    My local club hosts unmarked 3d tournaments regularly. The targets are almost all under 20 yards and have varying elevations. Also, they do not allow range finders. My question is how should I adjust for different distances and elevations with my olympic recurve?
  3. Any NY'ers have a place that they can shoot beyond 20 yards?

    General Archery Discussion
    I've been pretty happy with my setup so far and the way that I'm shooting, but realistically, there's no way I can test my accuracy because all the ranges that I go to only go as far as 20 yards. I want to shoot at 30 and 40, maybe 50, but unless I know someone who has property like that...
  4. Ideal point on distance? Having trouble with 3D

    Traditional Archery
    I recently switched to gap from instinctive shooting. I mainly shoot 3D and recreationally. My point on distance is about 35 yards, which is giving me a gap of 12-14 inches low when I'm shooting in 15-25 yard range that most 3D targets seem to be. This makes it tough to be as consistent as I...
  5. Short distance (9 meters) or longer distance (18 meters) to work on form?

    Traditional Archery
    In the indoor range I go to, the ranges are available in 9 meters, 15 yards, and 18 meters. For the local tournament, I have to shoot 18 meters, 40 cm target. I feel comfortable in the 9 meter range because I can easily see my arrows at the target (for the most part) and my groups (thus my...

  7. Arrow almost hitting sight

    General Archery Discussion
    I recently put a CBE TEK Hybrid bowsight on my bow. I like to shoot out past 100 yards, but when I adjust my sight down to shoot around 100 yards my sight looks like it will hit the fletching on my arrow. Is there a test I can do to see when my arrow will hit my sight without actually shooting...
  8. Poundage And Max Shooting Distance on Whitetail

    Traditional Archery
    After reading a thread in the bow hunting section about maximum shooting distance for deer, it got me to thinking about this topic for traditional hunters. Considering individual skill level, what is the max distance you would shoot with your current poundage and setup?
  9. Best Long Distance Carbon Arrow?

    General Archery Discussion
    I'm looking to get some new arrows and was considering maybe getting cheaper arrows. I shoot the Carbon Express Reds and really like them. I'm just wondering if the price is worth it. I hunt and shoot 3D targets. I shoot between 60 and 80 yards practicing and want to make sure my groups are...
  10. Effective/Ethical shot distance?

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Curious to know what everyones view is on effective vs ethical shot distance. I think it will be interesting to see when you compare standard whitetail hunters versus western state hunters. I imagine this could start some debate, so please, keep it clean and no bashing. What works for some may...
