  1. Traditional Archery
    Hi all! Not sure if I'm sharing this in the right section of the forum but here goes! I shot a lot in high school and college, but haven't in years. I now have some health problems that severely limit my draw weight. I need like a kid's bow, maybe 15lbs, because I can't pull more than that BUT I...

    Educate yourself on the proper exercises to make your shoulders stronger. Simply pulling on bands is NOT the anser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-NA8lUy5_Qc

    Hi there, Have been a recurve archer for 10 years and in around the 5 year mark i developed a weird "injury" in my draw shoulder(I was left handed), that presents as a tremor at full draw. I have subsequently changed hands and stepped back from archery for various reasons. I seem to be having...
  4. Coaches Corner
    Hello guys and gals, I am a recovering archer; that is, after the 2014 elk season I sustained massive injuries to my bow hand and I did not do any respectable shooting until January this year. The thing is, as I am getting back in to regular archery and I am having a really hard time shooting...

    I'm about a year out from a injury that's left me with limited neck rotation. Not surprisingly, I need to make adjustments to compensate. One area I'm looking into is my bow sight, specifically windage. My current sight has about 30 mm of windage gang adjustment, of which 25 mm is useful...
  6. F.I.T.A, N.A.A., Collegiate Archery, And J.O.A.D.
    Hello everyone, need your help very much. I have an injury under my chin because of the bowstring and with every practice it's becoming worse :( My coach and I can not determine the cause. I have a side anchor.

    I'm glad I did the research and had a sales lady that told me what to expect. I got my first injury and because she told me to get the arm guard (something I didn't know about), my injury wasn't so bad. Just a nice long bruise. I'm proud of myself because I didn't yell or get mad. I just...

    I've been shooting one of my bows with Jerry Goff's In-Line Draw-Loc for the past month for testing and evaluation, and I put together a review of what I've learned. It even includes a cameo from my 8yo daughter (CuterShooter). As you will see, I was really impressed with not only the Draw-Loc...
  9. Crossbow Forum - General Crossbow Discussion
    WTPOPS thread on crossbow injuries got me thinking about how often crossbow shooters injure themselves through hitting a thumb or finger or getting smacked by a limb or stock etc, etc, etc...! I have never suffered an injury but one of the guys I used to moose hunt with took the tip off his...

    I have just taken up archery recently and have been shooting my Bow Tech Assassin (set @ 60 lbs) about an hour a day, every day for 3 weeks now. Last week I started getting a sharp pain under my left shoulder blade (I shoot right handed) when I drew my bow. Ignoring the pain I continued to shoot...

    Please Help! I messed up my bow shoulder playing volleyball last fall and I think I reinjured it playing dodgeball earlier this week. My archery team at school is shooting for score to qualify for nationals this weekend and I can barely hold my bow up long enough to shoot one end of 5 arrows...

    Hi, I've been shooting recurve for about 2 years. I've been increasing my draw weight and a couple of months ago, my collar bone began "popping out" (dislocating) from my sternum. I've stopped shooting and my Sports Medecine Doctor says there is nothing he can do about it. It looks like I have...
