    Tired of scope lights that use tiny button batteries (LR41) that quickly run out of energy but don't want to pay $90 to $100+ for a better scope light? Try this DIY solution. Below are all the parts you need plus some velco, electrical tape, and hot glue you have around the house. Here is...

    My peep sight is currently twisted to the left ( from the archer's perspective) So should I add or remove twist from the string? And should I do this for both cams? ( concerning of the synchronisation of the cam) EDIT: the peep is about 30-45 degree to the left.

    Hey everyone, my club has an old X-press Pro bow press, but I have no idea how to use it. I searched around the YT, couldn't find any video showing how to set it up from the beginning, the only one remains is the 10 year old Dudley ad in which he just started the video by turning the wheel, it...

    Anyone have a good method for adding a pattern to your backpack? I recently purchased a cheap small backpack with some MOLLE webbing that I think will be a great compact option for early/mid-season hunting. It's a darker green color which wouldn't be terrible hanging from my tree but I would...

    Things I learned. 1. These mats are heavy! Build Wanted wheels so it could be moved around my yard. Used 2 mats to make sure it would not hit the siding. Back one is fixed while the front one is only attached at the top so it can swing and absorb more force.

    So I have been wanting to see how my set up looks on paper and was going to make my own using wood but I wanted it to be adjustable. Then it came to me…. Use my tripod, almost all of us will have a tripod or three. This is so simple it took me less than 5 minutes to make. Make a wood box, and...

    I have this old field point bag that still has a lot of life left, but the exterior is faded and needs a facelift. Has anyone painted their targets before? Any tips or ideas on design and type of paint to use

    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!

    I will be headed to Kansas sometime to bow hunt within the next 2-3 years (yes I know far out) but fail to plan, plan to fail. Anyways, looking for advice/opinions. I have a saddle and can be mobile so hunting pressure hasn't always deterred me. If it's anything like other states I've hunted...

    Good evening all. I’m looking to do a DIY elk hunt in CO in 2022 or 2023 depending on what people have for time frame. Looking for a fellow hunter to tag along. I’m located in Massachusetts. My hunting buddies don’t want to spend the time and money to do a hunt like this so I’m reaching out to...

    I built this for the fun of it and because I’ve been inspired by Unk Bonds many styles of releases. Hook and sear are made from a grade 8 bolt that has been heated and hardened. They need some finer polishing and I need to lock the pins in some how. I’m leaning towards roll pins in the release...

    Purchased a 3D printer a while back and began designing/printing some parts that I thought would improve my situations. Upon doing so, realized a 3D printer is a rather simple tool that almost anyone could utilize to create their own parts/projects. Just need a little creativity/imagination...
