    Seems that there are a lot of outdoor folks around here. Let's hear it for an archery forum. No particular brand or style of archery. Just a general archery forum.

    I am sure we could come up with a clever name like Arrow Alley or something.

    Let's hear it from the archers out there.

    Sign me up. I like 'em all: primitive, traditional, compound, and even the horizontal compounds.

    I will shoot any bow that I can get my hands on... right or left handed.

    I'm definitely down to do some bow.

    I've wanted to get into bow for years; done so much with shooting, I just never got around to it and really regret it.

    This is exactly the kind of forum I was hoping to find, as I only know the bare basics and am on hot standby to soak up all the pertinent info you guys'll lay on me.

    Standing by...

    Sign me up.

    Shoot these more than my Glocks, or any other guns. It's quieter, cheaper, and I can do it in my big city backyard.

    BrokenArrow - nice collection.

    I am looking for another recurve myself and like the bottom 2 on the rack.

    Give us the run down of what's what.

    Top is a Samick traditional Korean bow (SKB). About 50 inches, Rosewood riser, Maple lams under black glass. An excellent shooter when ya get the hang of it - fast, smooth, quiet.

    Next is a Martin Dreamcatcher. 60 inches, Bubinga/Shedua riser, Red Elm lams under Shedua and clear glass.

    Under that is an old Herter's Hunter bow from the 60s. 63 1/2 inches, Rosewood riser, Maple lams under green glass.

    Next is a Martin Savanah. 62 inches, Bubinga/Maple riser, Bubinga lams under Zebrawood and clear glass.

    Bottom is a custom made Matlock Predator X3. 62 inches, Purpleheart riser (South American hardwwod, very hard/dense, really is purple)Bamboo limbs under clear glass.

    Me and my Mathews are in.

    Been bow hunting for about ten years. I can honestly say I jumped in to it with both feet and never looked back. I have not shot a fur bearing animal with a fire arm since. Just something about being able to get within 20-30 yrds. of a white-tail undetected that gets me going.

    An archery forum would be a welcome addition.
