ATA SHOW INDY

Just got back from the show-spent alot of time with Bill, Kath and Dan Miller. They have a new color for their bows-a plain olive drab green. Less bucks than the camo-it looks really good. Parker bows has a wood (or at least that is what it looked like) stocked compound bow. Lots of barnetts and 10 ...

the more FOC the better!! the 7-9% figure is for 28"+ target arrows shot out of a compound bow. Most recurve shooters go higher-on the light x10 target arrows or ACE's I shoot a 110 grain point-the lightest X10 (even for women with short draws) is 90grains-while the nibb for a much heavier 2014 X7 i...

I love the power freaks. Of course I shoot pheasants over pointers with a 410and driven partridge in England (60m) shots with a 28 bore so I feel that my vixen is plenty for any deer in ohio. Yeah, I have an exomag (the store I used to be a pro at gave it to me) but I rarely hunt with it. I also thi...

that seems to be the way the two I currently shoot came. I have two more in my shop-one a range bow, the other belongs to Pat HIder-a very good (1250 FITA) lady recurve shooter who won the Ohio state xbow indoor. I will check both these out tomorrow.

The apple hercules press is designed for short compound bows and crossbows. It has a steep angle to handle the xbows. It is what we use at our shop. We have had a couple cases where the rack and pinion gear jammed up but generally it has worked well. It would be my first choice.

bcy and brownells both claim to have a crossbow serving but I have yet to see either. I use BCY Halo .25 in our shop for reserving crossbow strings. I use it on my ausbow target bow and I have gotten more than 700 shots out of it. As to excaliburs-the bows I shoot the most-my two point blancs-I have...

Guys-AUSBOW industries makes such a cheekpiece-I put it on the last Point Blanc I bought (It didn't come with the wood piece that the old ones used to have) It is adjustable up and down. The only drawback is that it uses one bolt (You drill a small hole through the stock) and this sometimes causes t...

First crossbow-a "Jayhawk" I bought for 20 bucks as a 13 year old in the early 70's. 75 pound aluminum prod, a trigger that sometimes worked and a steel cable string. UGH" In 81 I got a horton safari magnum. then a DACO for target work and a barnett Commando (Great for wading bowfishing). I had one ...

Sorry Greg-the PBS's nonsense is NOT TRUE TO A POINT. If those turds would have said that a novice with a crossbow can outshoot a complete novice with a compound bow-I would have agreed. If they had said a novice with a crossbow could outshoot most instinctive flingers using stick bows, I also would...

the bowsite is a disinformation mouthpiece for the fecal PBS. THe PBS claims that novices with hunting crossbows can outshoot professional compound archers using releases. ANyone who has ever seen indoor target archery knows this is complete and utter bullpoop. When you have a group that claims to b...

Sparta Jim makes some good points-I used Bowsite to help people who wanted to try FITA style archery and apparently that site was devoid of many people who knew anything about that subject. On the other hand, the keepers of that site are blatant lying cowards-the worst being Brian Cole who calls any...

Old woody was back doing remedial work on bowsite. Brian the chicken banned him. I asked brian-politely-to go over to archerytalk.com and tell them that a novice crossbow shooter can beat Dave COusins (world field champion) Roger Hoyle (FITA Compound record holder) etc with their compounds. needless...

all but the point blanc neatly take down this way. Danny Miller sells (at least at one time) a neat Hoppes case in which all you do is pull the bow off the stock and it fits neatly in this case (or many hard gun cases for that matter). since the stirrup is on the same plane as the prod and is part o...
