  1. Firearms General Discussion
    For firearms most of us have have at least 3 firearms. At least most of us in the USA. During the American revolution we learned the importance of making sure that everyone can be armed. As we learned that it is possible for a governing body to become oppressive, and the people should...
  2. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Let's say that you may be hunting, or needing to go quietly and have no suppressor, etc. But, you do have a bow (longbow, compound, crossbow, doesn't matter) and some gear. Does anyone have a quiver they have made, modified, or bought that works for them that can hold more than the standard 5-10...

  4. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    My birthday gift to myself this year was a Bohning Helix Tower fletching jig. After an initial misfire with the wrong feathers, I finally fletched my first arrow using the jig. The feathers were quite a bit shorter than those on my store bought Gold Tips. With a since of foreboding I took the...

    Has anyone made (or modified a portion of their bow to install) a weaver rail with a tactical flashlight on it? It doesn't have to be a rail system, but is there a way to attach a flashlight for night hunting/ target shooting?
  6. DIY - Do It Yourself
    As many people know targets for archery can be expensive. You could pay a ton of money for a target that lasts only a bit longer than the cheaper targets. I have seen ways all over the internet and have shot a homemade targets before, so I know which ones tend to work well compared to others...
  7. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Just another one of my DIY projects? :D: Here goes. I like to hunt, but seldom get to. I like especially, deer hunting. Between stalking and using a climber, the one place I see deer but am unable to get a shot is in the middle of this grown up thicket of briars, weeds, sumac and just brush...
  8. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    Hey all, I'm looking into buying a compound bow (for fun, target, possible vermin hunting and backup in case SHTF). My main question is about trying to keep it reasonable for a beginner on a limited budget, but still buying the best quality bow within those restrictions. Should I look into...

    Here's a video I made of my new Callicoma longbow, Callicoma arrows, and Otzi's backpack which also used Callicoma timber. Also featured is a primitive fishtrap made from local natural materials. http://youtu.be/AN1ChOcf6wY

  14. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    Hey all, I've been wanting to get into a form of archery for a while now, but I can't decide whether to begin with crossbows or more traditional bow shapes, such as recurve or long bows. I was wondering whether you could list some of the pros and cons of your personal favourite bow shape...

    North Idaho Fisher found these FOB's yesterday, supposedly a replacement to vanes. http://www.starrflight.com/ We checked out a few vids, both form the company and independent via YouTube. I'm thinking of ordering a set to try out. I do my own fletching, but if these work, would be handy in...
  16. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    And no, they are not wood. I've been shooting a 45# recurve for several years and now just entered the world of compound bows, A 70# PSE dialed down to 55#. With the recurve, I only maintain tight groups to 30yds and would like some longer range shots on our property. I have a lot Easton Camo...
  17. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    Just took an interest in archery. Not a lot of places in Southern CA for archery equipment/accessories shops. Where would I find a good old fashioned recurve bow to learn on? Not even sure what my draw strength is. Tried to go to an archery class, but there were so many people and not enough...
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I am inspired by the poll regarding the number of people that have harvested wild game, and was wondering how many people know how to handle a bow. Another usefull skill when firearm ammunition runs low, or you want to be silent.
