It will not matter which way the fletching runs on arrows for left or right handed archers, however right handed fletching tools will be harder for a left hander to use, as you would need to change the angle of your hand. Any angling of the fletching will produce spin on the arrow, however this is not going to affect the shot of a right or left hander, for ...

With the bow it is not the speed of the arrow but the power it is packing. I think the general speed is around 300 fps (90 m/s). There are some compound bows that can shoot faster with thin diameter arrows. Usually 55 lbs draw is enough to kill any large game. I shoot a 65 lb take down recurve when I train. Than I switch my bow limbs for 50 when I hunt ...

It looks to me, looking at the diagram on this site, that ATA is a measure of the bow itself. I would say that the limbs of the bow are relaxed in this diagram. I hope this article will also be helpful to you. And here is the article: Understanding compound bows, and how to select them.

I don't know how much push-ups will help, since they're working the muscles in a different direction. I started indoor rock-climbing this year at a place with some pretty healthy overhangs, and those work the back muscles in pretty much the same way as drawing my bow. It feels to me like it's made quite a difference. Also, what's your draw weight and what ...

From my archery days, you're primarily looking at upper arm and shoulder. Push-ups can help with that, but are pretty hard on your joints.

A.M.O.(Archery Manufacturing Organization) and I.B.O. (International Bowhunters Association) both have a method for testing arrow speed from bows and although they are different both can be used to compare equipment for relative speed. Both of the speed testing standards use a constant drawlength, arrow weight and bow weight to test bowspeed. These are the ...

If you're in the right area, there will always be hunters selling old gear on Craigslist so they can buy new gear. In my case, I was able to find an Ebrlestock Slingshot for $50 on Craigslist. There was also a Tailhook for $100, and while that was a great deal, it was outside my price range. After a lot of experimentation, I got the Slingshot working pretty ...

OutdoorLife.com says: You wouldn’t think by looking at a turkey that they would present much of a challenge. After all, they’re just a pile of feathers and a few pounds of meat, right? Wrong! Turkeys are one of the toughest animals on two legs and you can’t assume you have Thanksgiving Dinner in the bag until you are wrapping your tag around ...

When hunting with a rifle, it's the energy of the bullet that matters. With an arrow, it's all about blood loss. The 'power' matters, but only insofar as it is a factor in creating blood loss. Ideally, you want a through-and-through so the arrow is out of the animal's body and does not block blood flow. What's necessary wrt fps for an arrow to kill a ...
