    Do yourself a VERY big favor and get a copy of "Shooting the Stickbow" by Anthoney Camera. Amazon has it for $17.96 + shipping. The great reviews it has gotten should convince you.

    Yesterday, I got my best score since getting back into archery last October. This was probably due to 1/3 skill, and 2/3 dumb luck.

    What you guys are calling "history", I call "new". I've never held a compound bow. I started in the late 1950s with a Bear Cub. I now have 2 recurves...a 1966 Shakespeare Trident, and a mid-1990s...

    I have had the same problem. I try to REALLY concentrate on the very center of the target, not just the target itself. I also do best if I hold and concentrate for about 3 to 5 seconds (don't ask me...

    I gave up smoking 6 years ago for one reason...taxes. My state, PA, collects one billion $ in tobacco taxes each year, while telling us what we cannot do. My wife still smokes, but it doesn't bother...

    Many thanks! The reading is now 6 7/8", so I'll give the string some twists.

    It's God's (if there is one) way of making sure you appreciate the "good" days. My wife and I made a list of everything that broke over the past 2 weeks, but your story has us beat a thousand-fold.

    From what I've read, there is no harm in leaving a recurve strung. The main reason for leaving it un-strung is: 1. Safety (like leaving a gun loaded). Someone could put a arrow in it and shoot. 2....
