Well?? :thumbup: I haven't touched it in a few years but will always love it (dare I say even a touch more than shooting guns). I'm curious who here shoots sticks and would enjoy hearing what you do (i.e. targets for fun, competitions, hunting, all of the above, etc.). And then whatever other bits you'd like to throw in here. I'll start- I started shooting when I was 13 years old with an old Darton dual cam bow. I love the behind the scene aspect of things almost more than the main event. So I taught myself how to work on it, tune it, serve strings, and eventually got into building my own arrows (not making wood arrows, fletching and painting etc.) I think my favorite thing to do is make the arrows. It's a lovely slow process! I liked dipping them to get a nice two-tone paint scheme. I need to rig up a cresting jig to spin the arrows. As much as I like all the new technology, the traditional aspects like building arrows is something I hope people never forget how to do and enjoy. Anyone that wants to get into it - do yourself a favor and don't skimp on the jig! The cheap ones just don't cut it and will always give you sub par results. I can't remember every single bow I've owned (or at least the particular models), but here's a few- 1) Darton something or other 2) Browning I dunno (split limb, dual cam). I never ended up shooting it and sold it shortly after buying it. 3) PSE um.... Single cam, super short brace height. My goodness was that thing a fast shooter! With my carbon arrows (what I hunted with) it shot around 280 fps. I regret selling that bow to this day! It wasn't for everyone, but it shot excellent for me. 4, and current) Jennings Buckmaster 360. I like it just fine, but don't love it either. Single cam, love the shorter axle length, but I do wish it had a bit more speed to it. One of these days I'll pick up a Mathews or similar. They feel absolutely perfect to me! Always been a carbon arrow guy. Aluminum is too heavy, not nearly as stiff, or as good at penetrating. Unfortunately OR, and I believe WA as well, does not allow expandable broadheads. I always used them in WI and had fantastic results with them! Archery for me was always for the enjoyment of shooting and also for hunting (which I still vastly prefer to hunting with a gun). I think every once and a while that getting into some competitions would be fun though.
