  1. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    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?
  2. 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...
  3. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    My apologies if this has been done to death and I just haven't found it yet. Anyone who has ever hunted with both a bow and a rifle/shotgun knows that, generally speaking, you're going to have to track an animal further if you shoot it with a bow than with a gun. Not always, but usually if only...
  4. 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...

  7. Primitive Weapons, Bows and Crossbows
    hi guys- I just got my new Take-down recurve, a 45# Sage by Samick. While I was getting set up at the Pro Shop, the guy said it is best to take down the bow as little as possible. Well, whats the point of having a Take-down then? I'm planning on throwing this in my pack and hitting the trail...
  8. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I was just checking out Cabela's online store and their archery section got me thinking - Is this a viable skill to learn? Of course, any new skill that will aid in hunting/protection is wise to learn, but in a post SHTF society, would it be more valuable to be a gun slinger or have someone...
