Default Tx state longbow championship??

Iím thinking about trying to make the shoot this year. Does anyone know where I can find a list of rules ? Mainly about bow/riser design and what arrows are allowed.
Thx !!

Yep! Itís one of the top 3 in TX. I donít do wood arrows much so I always shoot in the selfbow or composite class.

They don’t enforce the “pistol grip” and “center shot” rules. As long as the riser fits the jig they have you are good to go!

Can a bow quiver be attached to the bow?

This is confusing. It is the "TX State LB Championship" with written rules that you don't enforce? Why not rewrite the rules as they are intended and you will enforce. I know there is no lack of participation, but it just seems odd. I know there are people who have a hard time coming to an event with a center shot bow that is really against the written rules. This event is talked about all over the country and I know it is a marque shoot, but when you write a rule, then don't enforce it, and have a committee to judge who's bow is legal and who's isn't, based on ???????? It's very confusing.

Yes this has kept me away from this shoot! Seems rather than not enforcing existing rules to keep people from being able to participate they would implement an Open Style longbow division to catch everyone who doesn't fit jig or other bow rules! Seems not enforcing existing rules would eventually blow up at some point anyway! JMO!

I have helped host shoots of all styles and formats and you canít please all of the people all the time. We have a great turnout and happy shooters with the rules as written and enforced.

Last year I didn't have a longbow. I do now but haven't a clue whether it will work for them. It would be a long drive to show up and find out it's not. So should I stay or should I go?

Gary, Measure the thickness of the limb at 3” above and 6” below the shelf. You should be really close! I guess I need to double check my patterns and make adjustments so that all my 1and 2 piece bows fit these requirements if they don’t already.
The one I made for Shiloh last year fits the requirements but I had to make a slight adjustment just to be sure when I built it.

I will but the question was posed from more academic of a position than whether I would go. I'm a long way from being good enough to compete at that level. Yet.

DRT, This is a fun shoot, it does not require you to be of any certain skill level. The same guys are going to win every year because they have more skill than the rest of us, but that is true of EVERY tournament you may enter, so if you can go, give it a try. Regardless of who I shoot with, we all have a good time.

If it's not for the top shooters, why call it a "championship"? Honestly I am going to shoots more for the same reason I used to shoot 3D with a compound. It's good practice. Plus seeing the other shooters, bows, styles and techniques is very interesting to me. I promise I'm not going to be challenging anyone for their buckle.

Gary we had this conversation last year I think about cowtowns shoots. Just stop being so hard headed and come give them a shot try all three of them. Nobody will give you a hard time they are all good folks at all the shoots. If you donít have a bow that qualifies Iíll have an extra you can use. If you donít have wood arrows I have about a 1000 I can get some that will work for you. Trad shoots are nothing at all like compound shoots.

I'm actually fixing to order some wood arrows. Driving the distance to some of these shoots I want to be able to shoot multiple classes. I will make more shoots this year. I may make that one just depends on conflicts with scouts and hunts for most of them.

Gary, I suck and I still had a great time at this shoot! I shot a bow that was 76# at my draw because I only have a three piece longbow. Even though I let go accidentally at my chin every shot, I loved the shoot! Just use some bug repellent on your legs! You don’t want ticks where I got a couple at all!

I looked at that schedule. I'll be back from Canada before then so I should make it.

I carry a sulphur sock in the warmer months. It is very effective to keep ticks, chiggers and other critters off the legs/waist. Permitherin is your friend too.
