The top #s are yards, the bottom meters.

The field bow was a 35# recurve I bought at Denton Hill for $75. Just wanted to shoot another class

Way to go Arvin! The one says 3rd place on it. The other 3 are the same. What place are they?

Congrats Arvin!! That looks like it would be a fun shoot to do. I might have to make me a glass longbow to try there someday.

Congratulations! Seems you are a dang fine pack leader.

Pardon my ignorance but on what aspect of archery was the competition judged? Im speculating long distance shooting of some sorts...accuracy or pure distance?

Horn chaser do it! You won't regret it. Two of those metals where done with borrowed arrows.
You will receive lots of knowledge from masters at bow making. See and meet some assume people . If you are like me and can't hit half dollars but can hit the earth with a good bow well then you can find your way to the podium .Arvin

lol that sounds like me. I can build a better glass bow than I can shoot. I was looking up the rules last night on bow designs and I have a design in mind I would like to try. I don't think I can compete for the record as 418 yds with a 50 lb bow is a long ways but it sure would be fun to try. Again congrats on your medals at the flight shoot.

Way to go Arvin!!! You represented Texas well. Were there any more bowyers from Texas?

You mention borrowed arrows, what is the optimum arrow for long distance shooting?

Once again, Congratulations my friend.

Hornchaser you would be surprised. One of those metals is for 260 yards out of a 35# bow. .the right light arrow out of a fifty pound bow goes a long way. That record was probably set with a arrow around 250 gr. Just guessing. I got 300 yds out of my selfbow. With one of those light arrows I borrowed. If I would have had d97 string on that bow it would have been closer to 359yrds. I brought home a few of those flight arrows I got out of the auction. They are light, barrel shaped with a heavier wooden footed point . No field points on them.tiny feathers for fletchings. Thanks guys for the comments. I do recommend this for all bowyers. Arvin
