RE: Any more tips for silencing my Hunter II

I went to the woolie whispers or whatever they are called and they were a marked improvement over the beaver, which I ended up putting on my Don Brown longbow. When I went to heavier arrows, that...

RE: After 50 kills and 38 yrs. - I quit!

Sorry to hear that longbowman. I've had to stop shooting because of illness and lack of confidence and I hated it.

If you think it's salvageable, like Arthur suggested, try some different...

RE: Strickly Traditional

I must be a klutz, because I tried shooting both the compound and recurve and it just didn't work for me. I had to get rid of the wheels before I could realize much improvment with the curve.

RE: Used Black Widow or a Hunter II?

RE: How Do You Define " Cast" ?

California is still using cast/distance an arrow travels to determine what' s legal and what isn' t. I don' t remember exactly, but believe the minimum is 130 or 150 yards with a legal hunting arrow.
