    Default My Samick SLB Longbow arrived.

    She arrived this afternoon. I shot it three time at 15 yards, No nock set, BH not set either and hit the X on the third shot. I still need to order new strings, Shelf pad/rest and some string silencers for her. The bow feels great. I like the narrow grip similar to my Martin compound bows. It doesn't feel like I'm gripping a baseball bat. LOL. I used some of my 400 HT-2 arrows with Gator vanes that I use with my Target compound bow and they flew near perfect.

    here's some pics.

    When your ready to build a set traditional arrows for your longbow, Wapiti Archery down in Grants Pass, OR makes some great shafts, or ready made arrows, at reasonable prices, both tapered and now parrallel shafts. Nice folks, too.

    No, but I can tell and show you how to make a soda bottle launcher from some scrap wood, a piece of plastic rain gutter and some surgical tubing, that will throw a soda bottle about 25-30 into the air, and give you 10 to 20 seconds, depending on the weight in the bottle, Plenty of time to draw, aim, and fire at it! And the whole thing weights a few pounds, and folds up for storage, or packing into the vehicle. They are a blast!!! And Great practice. Watch for the blog over on HuntBuds, I need the surgical tubing, gotta go up the Eugene to get it. I can also post it here for those interested. Its just a bit harder to make flu flus that will work wiith a drop away rest, easy to make 'em for longbows and recurves.
