  5. Hunting Bows
    I'm selling this bow for my dad since he recently stepped down in poundage to continue shooting. Up for sale is a Reflex Caribou bow, 60-70lb., 28-31" draw length, with camo soft case. The bow is in excellent shape, used very little, and I would say it is easily an 8 out of 10. Included is a...

  7. General Archery Discussion
    Hi there, I shoot finger compound, just wondering if anyone ever used Pro Lite II or Timberdoodle from Bodoodle? Which one would be a better choice out of those two ? I am planning to go hunting with it in the future but I spend most of my time in the field range (is it noisy?) Cheers
  8. Bow Tuning
    Hi everyone, I tried to find a correct answer on this topic but there are so many different comments. Basically my question is "How do you tune a whisker biscuit rest on a compound bow for a finger shooter" I have heard that I need to place the rest slightly left... I also heard that...

    I have this posted in the classfieds and figure it is more suited for this part of the forum. Take a look, it is a pretty sweet combo.

    I recently had to switch to a two finger grip on my 46# Hoyt Formula Recurve (congential deformity in ring finger) Needless to say my remining fingers were not up to the task so I built this Finger Trainer to stengthen them up. It works well and allows me to train while sitting on the couch...
  14. Traditional Archery
    I've used a fairly tricked out Hoytt Ultra Tec compounds for several years now. I'm primarily into the hunting aspect of archery, but I do a little 3D, and of course plenty of target time. I wanted to just kind of simplify things a bit and go a step backwards. Of course I initially wanted some...
