  • Tip of the day thread

    How about a thread that you post a tip that has saved you time or just made good sense. Sometimes we forget that everyone doesn't know the basics or things we take for granted. You guys surely are doing things that I don't know about so, what say you..

    Let's try and keep each tip to one post rather than listing everything you can think of that moment. Maybe we could put the tip in red as well so we can see it easier.

    I'll start..

    Used to drive me nuts when my field points kept coming loose, try putting a bit of string wax on the threads, it's a quick fix to a common problem..

          Tie d loop knots in opposite directions to eliminate torque on the string.
          Tie in your top knot away from your face so it doesn't cut you if it touches. also will save facial hair.

              After I get my bows all set up I mark everything with a pencil ,Like where my sight is ,rest ,most important my cam or cams I scribe a line on the cam both the front and back of the limb .That way you can get a quick check if something is moveing .Or when your not shooting good you can just look at everything and know its not the bow or it is the bow.Work's for me

                  Nice suggestion! Hereīs one of mine:

                  Spray your high density foam targets with vinyl cleaner spray (dashboard cleaning ones made for cars, cheapo ones work the same!) and youīll pull arrows much easier. Product stinks to first half of shaft ready for the next shot, and you wonīt stink your fingers which is safer to operate BT releases!

                      This one is for the newer archers that have problems with peep and loop rotation. Nock your arrow from the front of the string not from the side. When you rotate the nocked arrow it will also rotate your loop and peep. I have seen so many hunters nock their arrow on the side of the string and then roatate it to the rest. Nock it just as it will be when on the rest.

                          Make sure when you put your cables back on they go from the outside in so you can draw your bow when you get it out of the press.
