Woman new to archery… looking for advice, suggestions

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I am a 53-year old, 5’1", small-framed woman, strong for my age and build. I have been interested in archery for a long, long time and am finally doing something about it.

I very recently got a 62" Ragim Wildcat takedown recurve rated at 28# @ 28". My measured draw length is 23.5" and I estimate my draw weight to be 19-20lbs.

My goal is to become a competent instinctive shooter (rather than Gap or shooting with a sight), and am interested in competing in target archery tournaments and later (perhaps) field archery tournaments.

I’m working on form right now (split finger) but routinely shoot high (about 25 inches at 10 yards) and to the left. My grouping is inconsistent – usually at least fair and sometimes very tight – obviously, my form still needs a LOT of work. To try to adjust the arrow elevation issue, I moved my bowstring nock point up from 1/2" to 3/4" and plan on changing my anchor to my middle finger (instead of index finger) to corner of mouth. Have not tested yet.

I’m currently shooting Easton Genesis II 1820 arrows cut down to 25" and fletched with 2.5" feathers instead of vanes. I believe these Genesis arrows are way too heavy and stiff for my set-up and have been considering a switch to lighter Easton Jazz 1516 arrows. I want to build these arrows myself so I can tune FOC and soften Spine (the 1516 as spec’d by Easton has an FOC <7% and is probably too stiff for my set up). I also like the idea of having the jig, etc. so I can replace my own fletchings as I tear them up. Here’s what I have in mind:

1516 cut down to 25" with Bohning T nocks, TrueFlite 2.5" feathers, and the Easton 1816 (63 grain) NIBB to add extra weight on the front end. Per the online calculator at http://www.goldtip.com/calculators.aspx these specs should give the arrows an FOC of around 8.8% and the total weight would be 110 grains lighter than the Genesis.

Is my logic behind this arrow configuration valid? Any advice about equipment, form, practice exercises, etc?

I appreciate your feedback…

Need some advice refinishing my recurve bow

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Hello everyone,

I have a Ben Pearson Spectre which needs to be refinished. I see this on the limbs; the outer layer is peeled off. It looks like a layer of some laminate but I don’t know what it is. Underneath you can see the smooth wood limbs:

How do I proceed? For the riser areas, I will sand and refinish simple. But for the limb areas, I am stuck. Should I sand off the shiny laminated portion so only the wood is showing? What material is it that I should use to re-seal it and get back that thick black finish? That layer is quite brittle and comes off easily with some effort.

Thanks!
Marc

edit: The bow is a great shooter @ #45! It’s perfect, no cracks, no limb twist. I just want to make it like new again.

1st time food plot advice

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

After having access to a suburbian business complex that holds a good amount of deer in the area. I got permission and decided it was time to give these deer something else besides hitting the flower beds at night and having no other need to be on the Business complex. The small plating area is on a overgrown path that that is used by the deer at morning and night but always seems to be hit or miss how often they use it. It’s part of a patch of thick stuff that is a few 100 yards long and about a 100yrds wide. My side of the patch has small lots on either side of the complex that I have gotten pics on my cam all times of the day during the Rut and been lucky enough to take 2 Small Bucks on the property. I haven’t gotten pics of the BIG Racks that I have seen boardering the complex. The food source is very poor except for flower beds near the buildings and the nicely landscaped blacktop walking paths around a lake on the property.

I have looked at the Sweetspot stuff and so far looks like the most promising. I also just seen a ad for the Roll out food plot. I have to do everything by hand. I removed a good amount of weeds and growth. Just have to hit it with some weed killer next. ANY advice will be helpful.

Thanks,
Rich

.this Buck was from last season.

Need some advice

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I’ll be giving archery lessons to someone this summer and I need some advice on a good bow for him. He’s 10 and his dad is getting him a whole new set-up in anticipation for the lessons. I can figure out all the extras to get him (release, sight, rest, etc) on my own, although if you have input I won’t refuse it. I just need to know what kind of bow he should get. Any ideas? Since he’s so young, he just needs a starter obviously.

Hunting Arrow Advice

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I hunt deer in Illinois.

So.. I’m looking to setup a hunting arrow for my 45# Hoyt Excel w/ med black max limbs for the coming fall. I’m really liking the Goldtip Trad 3555s I’ve been experimenting with. My draw length is settling in at about 28 3/4".

I only purchased a few shafts to experiment with and I got a bit zealous and cut them to 30 1/8", standard GT inserts, and 125 grain field points. When the tuning was done i got them to tune perfectly. However, my limb bolts are completely cranked down (maybe not a bad thing for hunting) with brace height set to 8 1/4".

According to Stu Miller’s calculator. My GT trad 3555, 30 1/8", 125gr heads, are 415 grains, 9.3 GPP, 14.8 FOC, 193 FPS, and 34.3 ft-lbs KE..

So my question is….

Should I leave well enough alone and keep the setup as is and just pick at 125 grain broadhead, tune it and go hunting?

OR

Should I goto a heavier broadhead in the 150 grain range and backoff the limb bolts a little to get it to tune?

OR

Should I cut some shafts a bit longer and keep the 125s, and back off the limb bolts for tune and have the ability to adjust my tiller?

Also, what would be a good broadhead for my setup?

Need advice on first trad bow purchase.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I read as much as I could find on 58" longbows as I could, and what I have learned is that longbows don’t stack. Or at least it’s not nearly as bad. Is that right?
I have looked at some like the shrew, but the small few I have seen are so expensive, all around 600 or more. Is that the norm? Or are there good bows like this
that don’t cost as much? And, I don’t need 58" bow exactly, I just like the short style bow with the lack of stacking. I had a chance to shoot one that was 58", and it was so nice to shoot,
and quick too. But I never , at the time, thought to ask more about the bow.
