PowWow / Re: Need help finding a longbow
« Last post by MMW on November 18, 2018, 10:59:27 PM »
Thanks for replying.
I shoot a 66" longbow but one day I got to shoot a friend's 78" English longbow that was the same #"s as mine and there was a huge difference in resistance which I liked. Like I said I am not experienced with bows but the one thing I do have experience with is forums and the need to get certain things across right from the beginning. It actually does help weed out the people with some helpful information and eliminate the people that want to give information that suits their needs. If this is rude then that's that but this is also the internet where things can easy be misconstrued as rudeness because one hasn't used a couple of hundred words to fully explain themselves.
I am open to suggestions and education about longbows. From the searching I have done on the internet it does seem like the length I'm looking for is a long shot. I don't know much about how a longer length can effect performance but I can understand that there can be reasons why. I did really like the lack of resistance in the longer bow. My reason for wanting a one piece is just stubbornness to shoot something that is more like a traditional bow without going as far as shooting a stickbow.

Any longbow education and help is greatly appreciated.

I love using arrow calculators, but I admit that this is one of the drawbacks. As mentioned, the personal form factor can clear up some of the bugs so long as you consistently find the same results. I also find with carbon that there’s a wide range of flex that you have to work with since the recovery is so fast; even more so with center/past center cut risers. If the arrow looks good in flight to your eye, you can also move on to paper tuning to be certain that you’re not missing anything with your eye. If you have a dense target you can always tune off of nock angle if you dont want to monkey with paper. All in all id say with your set up, arrow calculator, and results, its about what I’d expect. 400’s with 200 grains with a footer and in that bow I’d say theres a good range of options that will work well. Glad you made your way back - you sound like you’re catching up well!

Keep positive thoughts, you only lack your paths crossing at the proper time.  I am not a big believer in "unkillable"; -time, patience, and the ability to hunt where a buck lives has reduced many "unkillable" bucks to table fare.  Sometimes trying something completely different yields great results; "beginners luck" is often just a matter of a new hunter doing something an experienced hunter would never do (whether it is a hunting technique or a hunting location).  The buck may have some lucky breaks but your's will come too. 

He obviously spends a lot of time on your property and after the first gun season, if he has decided sticking close to your house offers security, that is a good thing.

Although maybe he watches you each day to see which stand you are going to choose!  :biglaugh:

Good Luck!
