    DIY Equipment
    I have tried to make a bow out of a skateboard. Skateboard decks are made of maple plywood sheets put together under the pressure of 40 something tons. Exactly what we need. And at the end we, of course, will do some testing
  2. Diy quiver

    DIY Equipment
    Hi, This is my first time doing anything diy for archery. I've been looking at quivers for sale in shops and found none of them appealing to my eye. Untill i came across one made by lucky-leather, loved the style but €600~€800 for a quiver was just way to much, so i decided to design and build...

    Bowhunting and Bowhunter Showcases
    Im looking to try out saddle hunting, want to hear your opinions. Also shipping times concern me a bit, so any info on that would be appropriated.

  11. Tips or advice on Cam Shims

    Elite Archery Discussion
    So I was tuning my bow the other week to shoot a newer arrow and ended up needing to swap a shim from one side of the cams to the other.

  13. DIY Sugru Shelf for Martin AXON 40 + Video

    DIY Equipment
    While I am far from an expert at making things (possibly sub-competent), the shelf on the Martin AXON 40 was driving me a little crazy. It is a bolt-on shelf and it dug into my forefinger every time I shot it. Honestly, it kept me from shooting that bow more often. So I took off the shelf...

  16. DIY Footrest deer drag

    DIY Equipment
    If you hunt from a 2 piece climber I highly recommend this. I made this one back in the 80's originally as a drag for 2 people to hang onto and by accident started using it as a footrest. I've had to change out the rope twice and went from dog chain clasps to carabiners over the years but I...
  17. Whitetail Target Repair

    F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Since I know there are a bunch of DIY people out there I thought I would see if anyone has had good luck replacing the cover portion of their whitetail targets. My club has several old bales in which the cover is torn up enough that it has come apart and there are just pieces left hanging on...
