Re: Clothing updates

Actually, curious what you guys do for finger tabs on the go. I tend to only use them if I'll be shooting more than a dozen or so arrows in a fairly short period of time, but don't bother for stump shooting when I'm walking/scouting more than shooting. What do you all do? I use my shooting glove al...

Re: Ranger quiver Mark I. (Pics included)

Very cool! I'm curious about your strap attachment now: can we see what the back of your quiver looks like? I hear what you're saying about arrows shifting: for the time being I've been compensating by using my bow hand to check against the quiver foot as I reach back, and adjust as necessary. It's...
