   So I'm brand new to the bow world, and I know jack about bows.  Instead of bugging you guys with countless questions, I was wondering what forums you might belong to, or that you think may be a good for me to brows around on and find answers.

I've found some pretty good bow guys here so I haven't bothered to look else where. Ask away....
You can get info on brands, shooting styles, proper shooting form, arrows, rests, peeps, broadheads and anything else you can think of. Most guys I've talked to here or more on the hunting page. Haven't heard much talk of the 3D world.
Take care of Soldiers, Show em how its done and do it with em, Run to the Fight & and hold your ground! I die my men go home! If you're a NCO and this ain't you. GET OUT! GOD BLESS AMERICA!

I don't doubt the knowledge and experience of any of these guys,  just thought I might get some questions answered from reading existing forum posts and such, and not bugging everyone with problems that some might consider to be common knowledge.
Thanks D. I'll start another thread.

I am a member at archery talk as well as a couple others on here.  I haven't visited it in a while simply because of the tone of that forum not being what i like.

+1.  I used to go on the AT all the time, but haven't even logged on in over a year.  When I do go looking for info, I tend to go to TBH as well.  Good site, good guys, good info, not too much appendage measuring.

There's quite a few that are not from Texas as well. But most of everyone on there is from Texas.
There is section devoted to tuning and equipment.

I went on TBH last night for a while, and seems like a nice site.... man, they have a lot of everything on there... got hung up in a DIY thread for a long time. Hopefully get more time this weekend to browse around on there.  Thanks again guys.
