  1. Bear Archery Discussion
    My strings and cable have taken a beating on my 2021 Whitetail Legend. This is my first compound bow. Even so, the cable guide seemed like a weak link. I'll be changing the string, cable and guide tonight. I don't anticipate any issues, but always willing to listen to an experienced hand if...

    So I've been strictly crossbow hunting for 8 years now and have had plenty of success with bear, deer, and some with spring gobbler. Life story aside, I've been looking for a takedown recurve because I do a lot of off-grid backpacking and it would be nice if I'm able to do some hunting while...

    Hey AT, hope this finds y'all well! I had a question regarding the flagship vs. budget bow debate. I did a little googling to see if I could find any particular arguments for/against choosing flagship over a cheaper bow, but couldn't find any answers for my specific conundrum. Where I deviate...

    I'm Lindsay - I hunt public land in FL and would like to make things harder on myself :) This past year was my first season really getting into hunting again - my thing is fly fishing. I never hit hunting hard because I didn't want it to take away my fishing time, but I finally dove in and now...
  6. Broadhead Discussion
    I am new to archery, but I realize there are many factors that can change the flight of an arrow when you go from field points to fixed broadheads. Does anyone have any tips or combinations of field points and fixed broadheads that fly similar so practicing is a little easier. Maybe I'm looking...

    Hello everyone, Looking for any and all input. My 14 year old daughter has caught the archery bug ( thank you Hunger Games) and wants to explore archery.

  8. Arrows & Strings
    Ok so the more Im get into archery and hunting the more I'm finding I don't really know. Now I'm sure I could find all these answers if I took the time to look through posts but I'll be honest I am kinda lazy in that department. Here are some of the questions I had. I shoot a Hoyt Ignite 27.5in...

    Hi all. I have a Bear Tiger Cat, AMO 58, 45#, RMI 14506, Measured tip-tip 60". My research shows that this bow was made between 1964-1978. I emailed Bear Archer for any other specs on this bow, and still waiting. I bough this bow from a coworker back in 1998. Anyway I want to shoot this bow...
  10. General Archery Discussion
    Hi, I was given a long bow and I would really love to learn more about archery. The bow is 66 inches (I think) and my draw length is 68" (i think). This long bow that I have I know nothing about. I try to draw the string, but I cannot pull it back far enough. Is this because the bow weight is...

  15. General Archery Discussion
    I am looking for a used compound bow in order to learn how to shoot and use on my first hunting outings for whitetail deer in the northeast. I have never used a bow or hunted before and do not want to invest in a new bow until I develop some skills. I am looking to spend no more than $150.00
  16. General Archery Discussion
    I am just getting back into archery after 20 years. I was stunned to see the technology change and differences. I want to spend somewhere around $600 on compound bow. I don't want it for hunting and am having a hard time getting prices to determine what would work best. I am looking for...
  17. Traditional Archery
    Before I ask my actual question, I want to warn everyone that this IS in fact my first first post. I was a long time lurker about a year ago, fell of the map a bit, and have now finally saved enough to actually buy my first bow. I've done some research, but the honest truth is it's all quite...

She spent some time on-stand with me last year and now tells me she'd like to try hunting for...
