New To Archery – Choosing My First Bow(Have Few Questions)

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hi!

Yesterday I went to an archery place and tried some shooting – was really fun and decided to buy a bow and learn some shooting. I’m 25 years old 6"3 – 220~ pounds.

I’m looking to buy an affordable bow to start shooting. I’m not looking to hunt, just to shoot at targets and have fun with it.

I did some research and found out that i need 29"~ Draw Lenght(is my research accurate?) and 55lb draw weight. I’m not sure about the weight yet, seems to high for non trained arm, I probably need something like 30-40 and then increase it as i get stronger(does that make sense?).

So I’m looking for a bow, went to few pawn shops and checked out the craigslist. My budget is 100-150~ might go to 200 if that’s what it takes.

Here’s what i found so far:

1. http://chicago.craigslist.org/wcl/spo/3845114432.html
I really like this one, seems affordable and comes with arrows.
2. http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwi/spo/3828622703.html
This one is nice too, comes with all bells and visles.
3. http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/spo/3836549330.html
4. http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/spo/3816223069.html
5. http://chicago.craigslist.org/nch/spo/3832815818.html
6. http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/spo/3831148067.html

These are the ones I found, all others were $ 500+ and I’m not going to pay for a bow that much(at least right now.

Few questions i have regards to these bows(and in general):

1. bow #1 and bow #5 is quite different. I mean the first one looks older? or it’s just a different model? the #5 looks like it has more stuff on it and the model/shape is different. What’s the difference between those? Which I’m better off?

2. What should I be aware of when buying a bow from people? should i check for some damage? or something might not be working properly?

3. I know most of bow draw weight and length and be adjusted, but how hard is it to do that? what should it cost if i wanted to adjust it?(rough guesstimate is fine)

4. Any bows you would recommend? Anything else you could advise?

Looking forward to my first bow!

Thanks in advance.

New guy here from North East TX. First post and a few questions.

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Fellow traditionalists,

I shoot a fast compound crossbow that i really enjoy. Funny thing is, when it comes to vertical bows i find myself wanting to get "back to the basics". In fact, ive never understood why laminated and composite pressed wood bows are referred to as traditional, last time i checked the ancient ones defended their lands and hunted with bows that were built from solid wood, and that is what i hope to build. I have already built a few novice traditional bows, but have recently decided to get more serious about it and consult with others who seek to keep the old ways alive. Now onto some questions that i have…

Ive read that the two best woods are Osage Orange and Yew. But that other woods are "suitable" and that the important part is "in the build". Well a recepie is only as good as its ingredients and considering that these bows require precious hours of time invested, my question becomes is there any reason to start with anything other than the 2 previously stated woods?

So far ive only made "stick bows"..or bows from a tree that was 2-3". Is this way better, or is using a big tree and then splitting into multiple "staves" better?How did the natives do it?

Now for more specific questions, can anyone help me identify these trees and if they are any good for bow building…

The first two pics are from a tree that i made a decent stick bow out of, this wood seems to flex very nicely and is not "gummy" like some i have tried…there are a ton of these around here ranging from 1"-2ft thick. Would this be a quality wood to try something bigger with?

The third and fourth pics are from a tree ~5" at the base…its the first ive ever cut with plans of cutting into multiple staves and i dont want to waste time with something that will not yield a quality end product.

The last 2 pics are from a strange thorny tree that stood out amongst all the others. It is also about 5" thick at the base. Dont know why, but it was calling me.

I look forward to becoming a regular here and thanks for any advice!

My 9 Year Old Shot his First Turkey! (and it was with a bow)

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I took him out yesterday evening, he only wants to hunt with his bow. We set up in the gound blind and after about an hour we had a bunch of Jake’s coming to us. One came into about 15 yards and my son let him have it, he took off and we tried to follow but we couldn’t find it. I had today off so I told him I would look after he I got him on the bus. I took a long walk and found him in some high grass. I was very lucky to find him, I had no blood. He will be on happy little man when he gets home! I will post more pics with him when he gets home.

I’m so proud of him!

Opinions on my first bow

Hello, im 14 years old and have really wanted to get into archery.

Height 5′ 6"
Draw Length : 24.4"

For my first bow, my limit is about $ 175 + accessories.

I have been keeping an eye on this bow, and have been thinking about purchasing it
http://www.amazon.com/Barnett-Vortex…rds=vortex+bow

What are you opinions on the bow, as a starter?

I’ve ready many reviews and it seems to be the most purchased compound youth bow on amazon.

New to AT. Looking to buy my first crossbow. Help!

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I’m new to archery hunting because frankly I don’t find rifles to be challenging enough, and the thought of hunting with a crossbow sounds amazingly fun. Although I have NEVER shot a crossbow besides one of those carnival pistol crossbows for $ 30, I want this to be a one time deal. A crossbow I can keep for life. That being said, I’ve been leaning towards Excalibur (lifetime warranty). To be more specific the matrix 380 blackout or eclipse. I want something I can hunt anything with the bow. Everything I’ve looked at so far doesn’t really tell me anything about the bows except specs. A good recommendation for BHs for deer, turkey, boar, and bear would be appreciated. I’m really out often element on this stuff. I’ve heard about noise being an issue for the matrix and if someone can explain to me why this matters that would be nice too. I figure one well placed shot will be good enough making noise irrelevant? Thanks in advance for the replies!
