I have to admit, after years of using the “bare shaft” tuning method, it has only been within the last two year that I have perfected it!  

Part of the reason, must fall at the feet of those preaching it, who didn’t have the right ideas as to how to do it!   That would include people who stated they tried it, but it didn’t work.   I must not over look those who shoot self-bows, and bows that are not cut to, or near enough to center-shot!   Those poor souls must deal with the fact that they are “shooting off the side of their bows,” as opposed to shooting through the bow, which is closer to what happens when your bow is center-shot.   Having stated the above, those who shoot off the side of the bow need not fret, there are other tuning methods, methods that work nearly as well as…

Book Review: The Ranger’s Apprentice

rangers-apprenticeThis book, The Ranger’s Apprentice, was recommended to me by a Facebook friend.  It was a procrastinated read for me and I am sorry that I waited as long as I did.  This was one of those books for me where I just wanted more and more.  It doesn’t matter if you are an archer, a warrior, or adventurer, this book was all that and more.

I listened to it via audio recording that I got from my local library.  I will not give any of the story away.  I will just tell you how fun this book was.  I was literally cheering for the heroes.  I was at the edge of my seat in suspense with the action.  I fell in love with the characters.  I found joy in their accomplishments and felt the sorrow in their failures.

I cannot thank my Facebook pal, Jimmy Pitts, enough for recommending this series to me.  I have already started listening to the second book and I am looking forward to watching these characters grow.  “The Ranger’s Apprentice” is just so much fun!!

Natural Feathers Over Plastic Vanes

nock3This is from a Facebook post that was listed by Gateway Feathers.  Knowing these advantages was so cool that I thought I would share it on my Blog.  Be sure to visit Gateway Feathers and let them know I sent you.

The advantages of natural feathers over plastic vanes are numerous!

• Feathers will give greater arrow control and guidance
• Feathers will make bow tuning easier and less critical
• Feathers will increase your arrow speeds giving flatter trajectories
• Feathers will increase the usable spine range of arrows
• Feathers will decrease chances of brush deflection
• Feathers are up to 500% lighter than plastic
