How to Make and Use Eric Krewson’s Tillering Gizmo

Tillering Gizmo

Some time ago I wrote an in-depth build-along entitled the “Beginner’s Guide to Building a Hickory Longbow.” Well, in researching how to build a selfbow it is impossible not to hear about Eric Krewson’s tillering gizmo. As such, I felt it would be natural for me to reach out to Eric and see if he’d be […]

Introduction to 3D Archery

What is 3D archery? Generally, when an archer talks about 3D, they’re referring to shooting at three-dimensional life-like targets – normally made from foam and situated in such a way as to simulate a true-to-life hunting experience. At its inception, 3D was focused mainly on hunting practice, as such most of the targets were shaped like game animals, but 3D quickly evolved into a sport of its own, with rules, scoring, and a nearly limitless cornucopia of targets.

Archery in Vietnam?

Archery in Vietnam

I recently found this photo circulating some forums, on its face it’s pretty cool looking – in fact it’s said to have been on the cover of Navy Times during the Vietnam War. Pictured is Lieutenant Commander Donald D. Sheppard, USN, who went on to write several books after the war. One such book, which […]

A Rite of Passage

The rack may not be significant, but the experience of the saga to kill a deer with my bow and the venison for my family most surely is. The bow is a Border Black Douglas 58#@28". Arrows were Axis with a Grizzly Head. 680gr total weight. It's the first kill for this bow. The shot went in as pictured and came out about 6" lower on the opposite side. Got one lung and the liver. He only went maybe 70 meters. The grizzly heads, adapters, feathers, inserts, and some various other bow accessories used were purchased from 3Rivers Archery.

Spring Gobbler Hunting for Beginners

Turkey Hunt

By Jason D. Mills For the spring season, if you want to bag a turkey, you’re going have to scout, scout, and then scout some more. Expect this to take a good bit of time and effort. You’re scouting to find where the turkeys are roosting and where they feed or strut in the morning. […]
