  • What are some things others do to build muscular endurance for long range days? I'm in the gym 3-5 days a week and have lost all of my shooting endurance in the last few months.
  • I have a Vine Maple "stave" drying that I cut down on my little chunk of property about 2-3 weeks ago. Sometime in probably July I'd like to start trying my hand at making a selfbow with this wood. This will be the first bow I've ever attempted to build. In the meantime, I've been watching videos, and I bought a couple of Traditional Bowyer's Bible volumes I'm waiting for in the mail. Been reading build-alongs an various other message boards, trying to learn as much as I can. Was wondering if anyone here builds bows, and if they have any thoughts and advice on bow making? Any advice on dealing with knots, heating & bending wood, things like that? Any advice on "must have" types of tools, or a vice? Finally, any photos and stories about any bow(s) you may have built?

  • I have gone through a ton of bows over the years and I’m sure I will go through many more. Right now im shooting a Mongol by Rustic Archer.
