Keep Your Fletchings More Secure with GOAT TUFF Products.

The idea behind fletching any arrow is simple, just make sure it securely fastens to the shaft. Accomplishing this goal isn't difficult, but can become a hunters worst fear while in the field. With the buck of a lifetime before him, a loss of a vane in arrow flight due to a faulty bond can become the difference between a happy homecoming and a discouraged one.

The first step, and perhaps the most important, in ensuring your vanes or feathers stay 'on board' this autumn is proper cleaning of the arrow shaft. This is where the new GOAT TUFF 'Arrow Shaft Cleaner Kit' can play BIG dividends in the prevention of such a disaster. Read below to find out more from a recent interview with GOAT TUFF products president, Jerry Smith.

Jerry Smith, President of GOAT TUFF Products made the announcement from the corporate offices in Tucson, AZ.                                                                               
“One of the main reasons fletching doesn’t maintain a solid hold on the arrow shaft is due to the shaft not being properly cleaned. This is why we have introduced our new GOAT TUFF Arrow Shaft Cleaning Kit.” Smith continued, “Every arrow shaft must be cleaned well to ensure the fletching sticks regardless of the conditions and the last place you want to have failure is in the field. The Arrow Shaft Cleaner Kit is a convenient package that provides the quality products necessary to make sure your fletching stays where you put it - on the arrow shaft.”

Each kit contains a 2 oz bottle of concentrated cleaner for cleaning and degreasing arrow shafts, a 16 oz plastic bottle for mixing the concentrate with 14 oz of water and two microfiber cleaning towels for completely removing particles from shaft. The cleaner is pH balanced for maximum performance with GOAT TUFF Glue, is economic to use, safe and easy on the hands, environmentally friendly and biodegradable.

GOAT TUFF, making sure your fletching stays put.

GOAT TUFF Products offers a full line of cleaning and gluing products for the professional and home arrow maker.

NEW Reign Broadhead and why it Reign's supreme.

by Bow Staff 2. September 2009 15:11
Bow Staff

EP Hunting introduces new high-speed REIGN Broadhead.

Leave it to two innovative Michigan bowhunters to make the first substantial breakthrough in modern broadhead design. Mike Mix and Doug VandeWater are fairly average guys, but they had the vision and tenacity to look at existing broadhead design and realize that while bow speeds have climbed in recent years from the low 200’s to well over 300fps, broadhead design had changed relatively little. Through trial and error, the two created a broadhead that eliminates the problems inherent in current designs and at the same time capitalizes on the higher speed created by today’s “hyper-bows”. They introduced The REIGN broadhead at the recent ATA Show and were amazed by the positive response and industry buzz.

Two innovations separate The REIGN from other broadheads. First is a rather blunt looking tip called a SHATTERHEAD™. Razor sharp on four sides, but featuring a much steeper angle than other broadheads. In testing, the partners learned that at higher speeds, the tip was able to act similar to a mushrooming bullet and literally explode bone outward on contact, clearing the way for little or no blade damage upon entry. SHATTERHEAD™ makes excellent sense when you consider the high-speeds of today's bow. No longer do tips need to pry, penetrate or wedge through big-game bone. At 300 fps, a stronger, steeper tip can literally blow it out of the way.

The second innovation is a pivoting, single-piece, two-blade design that features a patent pending, spring-loaded ball bearing mechanism that re-centers the blade after it pivots to get past bone on shots where bone is not center-hit. These two hunters learned that a fixed or mechanical head is radically thrown off course when a single blade contacts bone. It either grabs or bounces and both actions radically change the intended trajectory. SWIVELTECH™ allows the blade to move, re-center for maximum cut and not be thrown off it’s intended path. The arrow carries more energy into and through the body cavity and provides bullet-true penetration.


The two features combined may virtually rewrite the book on broadhead design in an age of faster and faster bows. The head is available in100grains and is 100% Stainless Steel.

We hope to have more information on this exciting new innovation to the world of bowhunting, real soon.

Alpine Bows releases NEW Jim Shockey Signature Bow!

by Bow Staff 10. June 2009 02:51
Bow Staff

Alpine bows and Jim Shockey have recently teamed up to bring you one of this year’s most exciting new signature series compound bows, introducing the new signature series Yukon.

The power train of the Yukon is Alpine Archery’s tried and true Velocitec cam coupled with a matched set of Gordon Composites Power Tuff limbs finished in Realtree Hardwoods HD. The precision matched limbs are affixed to the Yukon Riser with Alpine’s VX inter-loc pocket system, known as the most positive and rugged limb mounting system in the archery industry. The long list of features on the Yukon includes a custom string dampener that employs the Simms Decelerator module, Simms string leeches and Alpine’s own limb and cable guard dampeners and sports a twisted red and black, prestreched Stone Mountain “Dakota” bowstring.

The Yukon riser is coated with a black wrinkle powder coat finish. Accented by an elegant, laser engraved and checkered grip featuring Jim’s initials. The riser is finished off with an antiqued medallion and fiberlok shelf pad.

Included with every Silverado Series bow (including this new Yukon) are two small 3/8” carbon rods. These rods are designed specifically for the purpose of loading or cocking the cam. By loading or cocking the cam, one can relax the string or buss without the use of a bow press to install a peep, arrow rest cord, or change the string or buss cable. This method is much faster and easier than using a bow press.

Jim is proud to endorse the Yukon by Alpine Archery and will also be using one to hunt across the world for a variety game animals. Tune in to his show and see for yourself that Jim Shockey is now bowhunting with his Alpine bow! NO GUFF!!!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Jim Shockey Grip is checkered, with Jim's initials lazed into the inlay for a high end custom touch.    

                                                                                                                                                                                                                         The Yukon has a FiberLoc shelf pad to reduce arrow contact noise, a Signature Series exclusive.                                                                                                                                                                                                                   

Specifications for Jim Shockey Signature Series Yukon:

-Velocitec Cam: 28-31"
-Mass weight: 4.3 pounds
-Axle to Axle: 36.5 inches
-Brace Height: 7.375 inches
-Draw Weights: 60, 70 pounds

A little about the Jim Shockey Signature Series Yukon Velocitec Cam 28-31".

By combining two distinctly different string profiles, the Velocitec Cam System produces unrelenting speeds and tons of stored energy with a super smooth feel. The speed is produced by the power cam with a radical draw lobe while the consistent radius of the control cam keeps the draw cycle and shot sequence smooth. The balance of the Velocitec Cam is proven and acquired by the dual payout groove on the outside boss of each cam, making the Velocitec one of the fastest cams available in the industry today.

New Whisper Peep; A Vibration Dampening Peep Sight!

by Bow Staff 2. June 2009 11:42
Bow Staff



Probably one of the most productive innovations in the last 8 to 10 years in the archery industry has been in the area of vibration and sound elimination. The one product area this move has neglected however is also one of the most important, the peep sight. That has all changed now with the introduction of the first vibration/sound dampening Peep Sight, the Whisper Peep by LOC-A-PEEP.

John Giambrone of LOC-A-PEEP made the introduction: “This amazing Peep Sight combines advanced nodular design and production techniques with an incredible new material for amazing vibration dampening control. The Whisper Peep reduces string oscillation, vibration and the string noise usually present when a bow is shot. This product will make every shot quieter while also increasing arrow speed. The result is greater accuracy and pleasure from every shot. Another great feature every archer will appreciate is once the Whisper Peep is installed in the bow string it will not move, eliminating the need for serving the Peep in to the string.”

The Whisper Peep is made of a special Elastomeric material with red elliptical glass filled nylon aperture insert that ensures a large, round opening for increased light gather and faster, easier target acquisition. The body features easy to set string channels and will fit any bow. It is available in three sizes and two models; the Self Aligning  Whisper Peep with post extrusion for rubber tubing and the Whisper Lite standard model.

Drury Outdoors releases their HOT new videos just in time for summer!

by Bow Staff 18. May 2009 14:23
Bow Staff

Drury Outdoors, need we say more? The much anticipated new video’s have now been released, and the staff at are like little children waiting to watch last years Drury team deer season unfold before them. We hope you’ll join us too.

Here’s a short glimpse into what you’ll be watching, straight from the Drury website.

Dream Season 12

DVD - Nothing better embodies the great American hunting tradition than sharing the gifts of the outdoors with family. And in this case, those gifts come in the form of giant, freak-stud whitetails hitting the turf. All punctuated by a breath-taking muzzleloader hunt in the snow where Mark Drury chops down a 190 2/8” Iowa giant. Dream Season 12 is a fast-paced compilation of big-buck footage that once again captures the magic of strengthening family bonds through shared passion.

There’s a deer stand in the Drury family tree, and it just keeps getting more deadly. You’ve watched Taylor Drury grow up in the Dream Season series, and her latest hunt with father Mark proves she’s come into her own as a huntress, felling a 137 3/8” Missouri brute. Dad maintains head-of-household status with a monster head on the wall of his own – a 158 2/8” IA buck called Flyer. Brother Terry stays mad at ‘em all year, thumping a 147” in archery season, and dropping the hammer in Missouri on a big ol' 154" with son Matt throwing his hat in the ring on a 135 4/8”. There’s also Glen Simpson’s 160” bow kill from Illinois and a whole stack of thrilling encounters and huge headgear that’ll motivate you to get out and make some family memories, and realize your own Dream Season.

Whitetail Madness 12

DVD - Nothing captivates an audience like the diary of a madman. Ours is from a whole Team of them, gripped by an unrelenting obsession with the living ghosts of North America. Giant, mature whitetails. Whitetail Madness 12 catalogs the fanaticism of the Drury Outdoors Team from shed hunting in March to the blowing snow of the late muzzleloader season. You’ll see more inches of antler hit the turf in this 150-minute freak show than anywhere else. Of the 18 kills by bow, gun and muzzleloader, 7 score over 160”!

Mark Drury heads West to Wyoming with Rick and Julie Kreuter for a rollercoaster ride of emotions that skids to a dead stop with 136” and 131” lethal strikes from the X-Force. Brother Terry kicks off his season with the smack down of a 170 6/8” Missouri monstrosity with a bow – his second biggest buck ever. Not to be outdone, Mark heads to Iowa and puts the Rage in the cage of a 168” 8 point giant that measures over 24” wide. Friend Jim Thome thumps a 171” Illinois stud out of the park. And Taylor Drury keeps the family tradition alive by snuffing out a 136” with her T/C. There’s more. And we promise: You ain’t seen nothing like this. But then again, that’s why we say ‘Our Videos Are Different’ and call this yearly journal of insanity the Madness!

100% Wild Fair Chase Vol.9: Here's Your Sign

DVD - Trail cam pictures, rubs, scrapes, tracks, sheds – 100% Wild Volume 9 will help you put together the pieces of a mature buck’s puzzle. It’s your job to send it crashing to the ground. This chapter of our famous how-to series will get you in that big deer’s living room and into his kill zone like none before it. And it wouldn’t be Drury Outdoors if we didn’t let a few of the world’s most successful deer hunters demonstrate these tactics with an action-packed reel of giant buck waylays to fuel your adrenaline into next season.

Mark Drury uses the magic of Reconyx trail cam pictures and long-range observation to put the close-range thump on an Illinois stud 8. He strikes again in Missouri on a 146” on the most wonderful day – opening day. Brother Terry has a bangup season, and seals it with a 156 1/8” Missouri giant in the snow with his bow using fresh tracks to close the distance. Watch Jim Thome and his brother Randy put the major league smackdown on a couple of Illinois bruisers that measure 150” and 183” respectively. There’s a lot more. When we say ‘Our Videos are Different’, it means you best expect the unexpected and keep your eyes peeled – there are giants headed your way for the next 2+ hours.

Speed, Speed, Speed! A Glimpse into the 2009 PSE Bow Line-up.

by Bow Staff 11. May 2009 10:22
Bow Staff

Speed, speed, and yes more speed seem to be the greatest trends in compound bows at this year's, 2009, ATA show. But with almost every bow manufacturer now offering a model that breaks, or even shatters, the 300 fps IBO rating, manufacturers are having to find other ways to lure us bow using consumers.


First, the people at PSE have improved it's already popular X-Force line. A new GX Hybrid cam, which is on all the new X-Force models, produces an even faster arrow speed than its predecessor. Last year's X-Force line had problems with it's over-specked draw lengths. For 2009, PSE has corrected the issue and now has the correct draw length with the same speeds (in fact, slightly faster). The X-Force line will also utilize high quality America's Best strings and harnesses.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                          2009 PSE X-Force GX

Drury Outdoors has teamed up with PSE to make a new line of bows (3 of them) so aptly named Bow Madness. With prices ranging from $499 through $699, the value for one of these bows is unreal. These high performance single-cam bows with fully machined risers are practically molded off the famous X-Force line, including PSE's trademark past parallel limb design and the narrow grip which helped make the original X-Force line so popular. If that's not enough, all 3 Bow Madness bows produce six inches of draw length adjustment without the usage of a bow press!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                       2009 PSE Bowmadness

* Highly preloaded 10 ½" split limbs
* Madness high efficiency single cam system
* Extremely smooth draw cycle
* Ultralight mass weight cam for increased performance
* 6" of draw length adjustment without a bowpress
* 80% letoff adjustable to 65%
* Asymmetric Idler Wheel for improved performance
* Vibracheck Backstop-Instantly terminates string vibration
* Biomechanically Ergonomic Slim Throat (B.E.S.T.) Grip
* Past parallel limb geometry
* New pivoting split limb pockets
* Stainless steel stabilizer bushing
* Tuning alignment marks
* Multiple sight mounting holes
* Ultra lightweight riser for a total bow weight of 3.5 lbs.

Axle-to-Axle: 36"
Brace Height: 7"
IBO Speed: 326-318
Let Off : 80% or 65% Adjustable
Mass Weight: 3.5 lbs

PSE has also given the Bow Madness series their newest cam, dubbed the Madness Cam (MC Cam for short), which is the fastest single cam ever offered by the company. This new cam helps propel IBO speeds on the Bow Madness series between 308-332 fps (depending on the Bow Madness model). The 3 models that will be offered are the 36" XL model, with a 6 1/2" brace height, the 36" Bow Madness with a 7" brace height, and the 28 1/2" XS with a 7 3/8" brace height.

Other notable 2009 lines from PSE include the Chaos SI at an unbelievable value price of around $250, and the PSE Brute LT (the same Brute from last year with less weight). The new Chaos SI, designed for youth and short draw adults, has practically all the same features of the X-Force models. However, at 32" with a 6 1/4" brace height, PSE's Chaos SI will stun you with IBO speeds around 280 fps.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    2009 PSE Chaos SI

Past Parallel Bow Geometry
Tuning alignment marks
SI inner cam system
10" of draw length adjustment without a bowpress
Slim, Low Torque (SLT) Grip
Factory Installed Vibracheck? String Chubs
Multiple sight mounting holes

Axle-to-Axle: 32"
Brace Height: 6-1/4"
IBO Speed: 286-278
Let Off : 70% Effective 65%
Actual Mass Weight: 3.1 lbs

Whatever your poison, PSE surely has rediscovered it's once dominating ways within the archery industry. With the 2009 line-up hitting your favorite archery shop NOW!

DoubleTake Archery introduce's NEW BowPlane2.

by Bow Staff 9. April 2009 12:25
Bow Staff

DoubleTake Archery, LLC, has introduced the BowPlane2 (BowPlane “Squared”) which integrates the remarkable BowPlane laser alignment tool with a bow square, resulting in the most comprehensive and convenient archery setup tool yet.

The original BowPlane introduced early 2007 nocked on a bowstring and sat on your rest just like a normal arrow, proving to be the most accurate and convenient setup tool available.  Using laser and fiber optic technology the BowPlane projects a visible reference plane, or “sheet” of laser light 360 degrees around the entire inside perimeter of a bow – up and down the bowstring, along the cams and/or idler wheels, upper and lower limbs, rest and sight pins – enabling archers to quickly set centershot on their rest, windage on their sight pins and check for cam lean all at the same time.  This eliminates the need to “guesstimate” or “eyeball” initial bow alignment and set-up and archers found they can quickly and easily double-check their bow setup in a matter of seconds anytime throughout hunting season or during competition.

Now, in addition to all the above features of the original BowPlane, the all-new BowPlane2 incorporates a convenient bow square.  The bow square allows for precision nock point positioning on the string while the shaft of the BowPlane2 sits on the rest in the same position as an arrow.  The new square provides an extra stable and accurate positioning of the BowPlane laser as it has two secure connection points on the string instead of one.  It also has a compression o-ring, which holds the BowPlane shafts’ angle of rotation more precise than before.


Please be patient as Bowhunting.Com will soon have this new BowPlane2 in stock. Review coming soon!

The Harness keeps your binoculars stored snugly against your chest so they don’t get in the way when walking, birding, shooting or drawing your bow. The design of the harness also provides extra stability when glassing for long periods of time.

It is available in black and khaki for a suggested retail price of $20.95.
