Who all is going this year??
I've had too much going on this year so far and haven't got to make any shoots, other than a couple local shoots, and am ready to see some of my Texas friends on the range!

Since I haven't made 1 shoot this year due to shoulder issues and the shooting Demon I've been fighting for the last 2 years I'll be sitting this year out.
Not to mention I haven't had my favorite longbow since August of last year.

Might come over Sunday afternoon to watch the awards and visit some.

Either way you guys have fun and somebody from TEXAS please win this year

No offense meant to my northern family...

I think about going to this, but I am not sure my bow is legal and the real killer is wood only. I get the tradition and all, but aTBOT style longbow open class would sure be nice

Well, heck. Didn't realize that at all. Wonder why it's different than the Recurve Championship. Gotta work Saturday. Thanks for the heads-up, though, to save me the drive. Good luck to you!

I don't shoot non center + cut bows well. For me, if I have to fight it, it ain't fun. I'm too old to want to put time and effort into frustrating myself. That's what my kids and business partners are for.

I am with you. After double checking I think my bear bow is to high tech anyway. At first I thought it was just the woods that was going to keep me out.

Center shot is usually not a thing to worry about most all bows I have ever owned that were production are cut to have a + measurement. A neutral or negative centershot is usually either a custom order or something like a ilf riser. Even a bow cut to direct center is not center when you add any strike plate to it. For me when I set up any bow I use enough material to have a arrow width to the left of the string when I center the string on the bow and look at my arrow.

The center shot rule is not enforced, nor is the pistol grip. I spoke with David Sikes a few weeks back asking about the bow specs and he said as long as it fit in the jig (ie measurements above and below shelf) and the strings didn't touch the limbs when it was strung that its legal. I'd be willing to bet that 75% or more of the bows shot are center cut or cut past center.

It is honestly the most balanced range of any I've ever shot all across the country. The mix of shots and shot scenarios would be extremely tough to match on any other range there is.

Yep, really makes me wish they would loosen up the equipment rules a little bit. Like I said earlier, maybe make an open class or something. Looking at the drawing my bow is a little to big on the top measurement, so to shoot one match I would have to buy a bow and arrows and idk if I could ever do that for one match. I wouldn't be looking for anything crazy, all my equipment is TBOT legal. Maybe in the future they will do something like that and their competitor count will go up by at least one Haha

Is this the shoot that Shiloh misses one of the first targets to fool his competitors into thinking they might win? Then blows their doors off by day 2.

Are laminated bows acceptable? Someone said wood...but does that mean all bows shot have to be selfbows?

I reckon many takedown longbows are excluded due to riser thickness...?

Good luck to all the shooters.

No 3pc takedown bows are allowed at all!!!! Iím not sure about 2pc with a bow bolt, or similar takedown system?
