Split...one over and two under. I don't know why. I've just always shot that way. All I can say is that it works for me.

On a traditional bow, that's impossible. The only way a string can increase draw weight is either by increasing the brace-height (twisting the string), or increasing your draw-length. That's just...

I don't know about spears, but I hunt here in Ga. with slingshots (I make them) and blowguns for small game, and atlatls (make them, too..) for hogs all the time. And I know people that hunt hogs...

I guess I really don't understand all of the hub-bub. It sounds like a tempest in a tea cup to me.

Here in N. Ga. there is no problem with bow hunters losing anything. Most of the gun hunters are...

You can shoot regular vanes off-the-shelf, or even off-the hand (my favorite), if you use this trick I figured out a while back.

I ran across a website selling vanes for traditional bows,...

RE: My Newest Bow

I wanted to keep it authentic as possible (within reason. I can't pull a 140# bow). True longbows are not allowed to have arrow shelves, sight pins, string knocks, and cannot be shot with releases....

RE: My Newest Bow

You can see it better in this picture. I am still learning how to, use the digital camera. It's got hundreds of settings (or so it seems).
It's just linen backing that I got from 3 Rivers Archery....

RE: My Newest Bow

I wanted it to be a 'war-weight' longbow, which is typically 80-100+#. I stopped at 83 pounds because I think by the time I break it in, it will be near 80#. I plan to hunt hogs with it, so I wanted...

Shaving Horse

RE: Damn Rabbits!!

1 inch off at any distance = no meat tonight.

Solution: Shoot closer, or practice more. Check arrows for imperfections.

On the plus side, you may never run out of rabbits to practice on.

My Newest Bow

I just finished making another longbow. I made this one from a red oak stave, backed it with heavy linen, and tillered it to 83 lbs. I coated it with 5 coats of Minwax, and wrapped the grip with...

RE: Building A Traditional Hickory Bow

This is a good place to start.

I build bows all the time. It takes some practice, but it is a rewarding hobby. I also make atlatls,...
