Small arrowhead hanger prototype.

I’ve started prototyping a neat little arrowhead shaped hanger. You could use it to hang one or two bows vertically, hang your quiver and shooting glove or maybe a coat or hat. I’m waiting on the clear coat to dry to finish it, but this is what I have so far. What do you think?

Jason is now doing a flatbow. I will still be doing the molle.

Specs:

  • 60″ tip to tip
  • Tip width: 1/2″
  • Taper: from the Tip to 16″ down the limb.
  • Full thickness of the bow 1.75″

Step 2: Jason is now going to make a dots. The 1st will be at the end of the riser fade from the back of the bow up 5/8″ toward the belly. Another dot at the tip will be from the back up 3/8″ toward the belly. Connect the dots and repeat on the other side. All wood above these lines (from the belly side down) is removed.

PROFESSIONAL PREDATOR

Alright Predators I am starting my scouting for AK Caribou and something that I use when hunting out of state is I call the department of wildlife or the department of natural resource and talk to their biologist. These guys know the land and know what they are talking about. Make friends with them, ask about migration routes, last years burn areas, and anything you can think of. Once you learn as much as you can from them start putting it on a map. Find your Unit and print it off 2 copies one that hangs where your hunting stuff is and the other goes in your wallet. Bring it everywhere and when you have free time pull it out and look for transition areas, mountain ranges, thickets, funnels, anything that you think your animal is going to use. Dream about it start walking alot or enough to cover the…

ChronometerI got my new high performance bow string from Sin City Strings.  Before I replaced my old Dacron string, I wanted to test the difference in the noise and speed of the two strings on my Hoyt Buffalo Recurve.  I was surprised at the results.

As we start to dive deeper about arrows, my goal is to simplify the information so young archers can have a good basic understanding; it is not meant to be all in compassing or a physics lesson, remember I am still learning too. Therefore, the next step is to understand how arrows are measured and how to determine draw length.

The Archery Trade Association (ATA) formerly the Archery Manufacturers and Merchants Organization (AMO) has the following standard for measuring draw length:

AMO DRAW LENGTH STANDARD

For Manufacturers

Draw length is a specified distance, or the distance at the archer’s full draw, from the nocking point on the string to the pivot point of the bow grip (or the theoretical vertical projection of a tangency line to the pivot point parallel to the string) plus 1 3/4”. Draw length from pivot point shall be designed at DLPP (Draw Length Pivot Point)…
