My left handed 16 year old boy wants a bow. I would like to get him something he can grow into with regard to ability. He's a big boy. 6', 180, all muscle. He can handle most pulls. Looking to buy used. A couple I have seen mathews Z-Max, bear, and some others. He has experience handguns and...
I have yet to find something of that flavor. The reason I want an ambidextrous bow is that I learned to fire a gun with both hands, so I want to learn to shoot a bow the same way. Any help would be fantastic.
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...
I have read countless articles and websites about the best guns, weapons, etc to keep around and was wondering what other everyone else really thinks not just a set list made by someone on the internet. I would enjoy recommendations to research and possibly try. also, accessories for the...
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...
My little girl's birthday is coming up.
I want to get her (and she wants) a bow & arrow.
Should I get just a toy one or go for the real thing?
If a real one, any recommendations on a first bow for a kid?
If you want to learn flintknapping but don't have the right type of stone, don't despair. Billy Berger teaches you how to make deadly and beautiful arrowheads from the flat bottoms of glass beer bottles. Glass is plentiful, free, and it flakes much easier than flint. Learning the basics on glass...
I like my surplus U.S. issue "seabag"
it is narrow,, 1 foot wide and 1 foot deep.. so it does not stick out to the sides and hang me up going thru brush and brambles,,
it is 3 foot tall, so it will carry one of my long guns concealed
being tall and narrow, I can also carry a long gun . or bow...
Have a SAMICK SAGE 60lb draw, fast flight string, stabilizer, precision rest, dampeners on string and body, very quiet, very accurate, mostly shoot field point with it for practice. I also have a SAMBURU hunting spear, and a .60 caliber blow gun.
found this great series of vids from this guy who videoed himself making a bow based on the description from Lofty Wiseman in the SAS survival guide.
He's just followed the instructions - he's done quite a good job.:thumb...

Last evening I watched a Marine Survival Training on TV. On of the things they demonstrated was cresting fire with a bow & stick. Has anyone ever got it to work? I've tried but never got anything but a sore arm.
I can't figure what I'm doing wrong. I have no trouble with mag chips and steel or...
I'm going to try to make my first bow.
Here is a picture of the limb I found. I located a few nice trees, but didn't want to take down a tree to practice with,
so I came across this relatively freshly felled tree, hacked it up then dragged it home. It's easily 6' long and 3"+ thick.
