Tom Jennings, otherwise known as "Mr. Compound Bow," passed away on February 25th. Mr. Jennings was 88. Tom's love affair with archery began early, building his first recurve when he was just 12.
Throughout his life, Jennings was known as an innovator. Jennings was one of the first to recognize the potential of Holless Wilbur Allen's original compound bow design.

State and federal politicians across the country are hard at work crafting gun-control legislation in the post-Newtown era. But unfortunately, many of these lawmakers know precious little about guns, shooting, ammunition, or hunting.

With Montana's Legislature back in full swing, policy makers have taken up the explosive issue of … lighted arrow nocks. Only in Montana right?
House Bill 26, sponsored by Rep. Ted Washburn, R-Bozeman, would prohibit the state Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission from barring lighted nocks, as it does now, according to the Independent Record.
Over the last few days a barrage of editorials from Big Sky state newspapers have debated whether or not Montana bowhunters should be allowed to use the technology. And, one of the most outspoken opponents of the bill is the Montana Bow Hunters Association. [ Read Full Post ]
Here's one bowhunter's take on the old loose tooth tied to the door trick. But seriously, this video should probably be filed away in the "do not try this at home" category. While you can definitely give the parents credit for creativity, the safety concepts here are lacking.
And, who gets to shoot a bow in the house? [ Read Full Post ]
Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker recently issued a budget proposal in which he plans to designate $2 million for improving the state's deer management. This proposal follows a full review of the Wisconsin's deer management practices. The review was was conducted last year by whitetail gurus James Kroll, Gary Alt, and David Guynn.
