PowWow / Re: 37 lbs. Enough for whitetail deer?
« Last post by hybridbow hunter on Today at 01:00:07 AM »
Sometimes I'm glad I don't understand math very well. As I see it (and I readily admit I may be wrong), beyond a certain point math doesn't matter. If a bow will drive an arrow into the boiler room, it will kill the deer. If your pass through is accomplished at 180 fps and my pass through is accomplished at 150 fps, we have both have penetrated 100% of the chest cavity. Net result is the deer is humanely killed. So despite all the calculations, the 38# bow will still do the job. Isn't that an adequate answer to the original question?

Math and physics are everywhere and in everything we do, no matter if you understand it or not.Though people know they shouldn't urinate upwind in strong wind no matter their knowledge in science. Science will teach you exactly the point you can still pee up wind before your hunting pant smell bad.  :goldtooth:
 Fortunately human being can be fairly happy without any science knowledge.
Randomly when the deer will duck at the shot and the 400 gr arrow from the 37# will hit some shoulder bone or the spine in the pelvic area, that "humane clean kill" concept will get some hard time.

Congratulations to everyone for a great story and pictures.  Hunting Quail over a really great dog like Gracie is a life time experience.

Bear Archery 7 arrow bolted to the bow. Solid, quiet, and reasonably priced.  I like the Thunderhorns as well.

My last picture for this great St Judes adventure ! A great time was had by all, Joe is one of those guys you would be good friends with if he lived close by … actually he will still be a good friend even though he lives in NC and Rocky and I live in Washington State. I have been blessed to be able to have a few of these St Judes adventures and have met some really fine folks.

I hope everyone has enjoyed the story, thank you Joe for making it happen !! I hope Deborah forgives us for the prank and I am sooo glad she did not call our bluff because I like being retired and would have had to go back to work to pay her for Gracie " The Wonder Dog "

Terry …. we will hunt together again, can't wait for the next St Judes auction … It's for the kids  :clapper: :clapper:  :clapper:

I've tried them all and for me it's Absolutely Great Northern with the straight arrow gripper.  Quiet, solid and a bullet proof design. I really like the Quick Detach option too.
We have a good stock of kids bows from 9# to 40# pull and from 35” to 58” length. All bows can be sold as archery sets, with bow, arrows, quivers, arm guards, and other accessories. Also have a few 48” kids recurves in stock.

Have a few adult longbows with black glass, and a small number of Osage Royale longbows ready to ship.

Call us at 618-283-3954 to get these bows in time for Christmas. Free shipping if you mention this ad.

The Shooters FORM Board / Re: Form critiques
« Last post by McDave on December 10, 2018, 10:39:09 PM »
If I were you, I would put the fixed crawl on the back burner for a while and concentrate on basic form.  The fixed crawl is sort of like doing a bank shot in pool before you learn to do a straight shot.

A pluck is when you release the string without relaxing your fingers, like you would pluck a guitar string. The reason you do this is because you’re losing back tension and want to get off the string before everything collapses. It’s sort of involuntary, otherwise why am I still doing it?  The cure is to maintain your back tension until the arrow hits the target.  The challenge is that you need to learn to relax your fingers without relaxing anything else.  The body thinks that because you’re relaxing your fingers, then everything else should be relaxed too.  Focus on your back tension and make sure you don’t relax it until your arrow is in the target.

The Bowyer's Bench / Re: Hill Style Build Question/Advice concerning Limb Taper
« Last post by bjansen on December 10, 2018, 10:29:39 PM »
I really like the look of a slim tip wedge, but even when I use them I put a minimal overlay on top in order to maximize the teardrop shape you want the string to sit in without taking too much of the glass away. Measure where you want your tip wedge fade to end on each side of the limb, and use a sharpy marker to mark that spot on the side of the lam stack.  Keep the wedges long so you can push them in after you get the stack glued up and on your form (i.e., you do not want to lose them in your stack or have them in the wrong spot).
