I was going to go primitive a few years back. Bought some cedar shafts and fletched my own arrows, dug out the old recurved bow and finger tabs and couldn't get the dang arrows to stick in the target at 30 yards.

The arrows didn't go to waste as I gave them to a boy scout leader a couple months back for some kind of award ceremony. The troop sent me a picture with their arrow awards and that put an extremely large smile on my lips.

Thanks for the kind words guys, I really appreciate it.
Hopefully I'll get to the range soon and be able to post more information.

Great report. I wanted to get back into archery,but my joints can't take it anymore.I punished my body too much when I was young,and I'm paying for it now.

Very nifty addition to our range report area. The bow I shot today (RazorX) is a long (43" ATA, 8" BH) bow that is different from today's short compounds. When I get to where I can hit a target with any kind of regularity, I believe I'll post some stuff like this...
