Re: AMS Bowfishing Reel Bracket

Hi Bill
Making it did cross my mind. Half the price of making it will be buying the tread tap.
Thought I would throw it out on here, if you don't ask, you don't get.

AMS Bowfishing Reel Bracket

HI all
After an AMS bowfishing strap on bracket if anyone has lying around that is not being used and needs a new home :biggrin:
It uses rubber straps that wrap around your bows riser and then you screw the line reel to it.
Let me know if you have one.
Thanks

Hi Pumba
With the pics , it could be that they are to many megapixels when you took it. You might need to reduce them.

Re: Pig Hunting advice

Hi Ralphmalph One way I used to find hidden sleeping pigs is by their smell as they have a particular smell also greater concentration of droppings can be a clue they lay up in an area frequently. So on days with a light breeze and you have found clues they are laying up there, just work across the ...

Black Hunter Longbow on Ebay

Hi all Have been looking at a cheap ($135.00) Chinese made 60" takedown longbow on Ebay and I noticed in the pictures advertising it that the limbs appear to be of different lengths. Would that be an issue as it looks like one limb is about 3 to 4 inches longer than the other. :roll: This is the Eba...

Gompy Tab

Bought this Three Under Tab made by Gompy in Holland to try. It looked fairly good with a nice gloss face on the string side, but that's were it ended. In less than a week and probably 300-400 shots that gloss face layer just peeled completely off :roll: . I am shooting a 50# longbow and draw about ...

Make a division for them at your shoots. A fella who shoots carbon or aluminium arrows money goes into the club bank account
