    Hours til I pop smoke... Maybe this belongs in best things in life. After that, it's just 32hrs of driving and then I'm bowhunting!

    A couple hundred # of elk meat is, a pretty good motivator... Of course a bull screaming in your face, also an adrenaline boost and highly addicting.

    This has nothing to do with LFTS, but are there any bow technicians on here or anyone familiar with long draw bows? There's a new member on the forums who is 6' 11" and posted a question. I moved the thread to Bowhunting Talk to see if we could get him some assistance. It's at the top of this forum right under the "stickies".

    The uruk-hai had some long bows and they were huge!

    Jokes aside, I saw the post you are referring to and I really hope someone can help. 6'11! Good lord.

    I know.

    I'm thinking a 34" draw length might work for him but it's all about his wingspan. If he needed a 35" but 34" was the longest you could find I can't help thinking that maybe they could just put a long string loop on? I don't know.

    I just hate to see someone come on the forums for help and no-one answer when I know we have folks with the expertise.

    On another note, if he could draw 70# @ 35" can you imagine the arrow speed?
