How about a sticky with beginning bow basics?

#1 Post by Gamestalker » Mon Oct 19, 2015 8:18 am

I haven't seen a thread here for beginners to read to learn the basics of archery & bow hunting.
It could also be a good reference thread for old farts that suffer from CRS disease :lol:
That's how I thought about this! I can't remember what AMO stands for. :oops:

A thread that had a list of the basic terms/words used in archery & what they mean should be very helpful.
The list should include things like:
  • Longbow
    Recurve
    Draw weight
    Draw Length
    String Length
    Serving
    Spine
    AMO
    Fletch
    Cock Feather
    Nock
    Cant
    Shelf
    Tuning
    Anchor
    Sight Window
    Release
    Tab
    Finger Pinch
    Follow Thru
    Back of Bow
    Bow Belly
    Brace Height
    Laminations
    Nock Point
    Bow Square
    Bow Stringer
    Broadhead
    Field Point
    Quiver
    Shaft
    etc.
What's the chances of getting a sticky like this put somewhere that people would readily see & could refer to it?

Sounds like a good idea to me. A new archer is absolutely clueless about a lot of the wording we use!

I like the idea but it's a big undertaking. I'll give it some thought and see what I can come up with.
Aim small, miss small!
