OK lets see if I can get this right and understandable. Arrow shaft come in
31" raw length if you put on knocks and fletch them and the build up a
markland type head you end up with a draw length of 28" to the base of the
cone depending on how you cut the duck tape. The duck tape will mark the 28"
line how ever if you cut the duck tape long you then need to mark where the
28" line is so that the marshal can tell if you are not overdawing. To your
advantage to mark the 28" line becouse other wise the duck tape is presumed
to mark the 28" line. That was the reason for the mark for a 28" draw.
On a side note if you have a short draw you might want to think about using
a crossbow 550"lbs plain and simple. You can or at least I did make a
serviceable crossbow for very little. Won the wood for the stock 3 1" by 4"
by 36" oak boards bought a prod, still have to pay for it. a 3/8 by 3"
stanless steel cap bolt two springs and a piece of 3/8 steel rod, brass
would work. Payne Galloway The Book of the Crossbow has good drawing of all
the workings, but a pin works very well and is self reseting.
Also by having every one have their own unique arrows you limmiet each
archer to just the arrows he can afford to make . If HL Gilli's experience
is normal you lose 1/3 of your wood arrows to brakeage and you start with 50
you have to make 12 or so after each war just to stay at 50, but your skill
should inprove and you will find that you need/want to shoot more than 50
arrows in a battle. The brakage probly will not be all at the last battle so
now you have to take 60 or more arrow to have 50 left for the last battle.
However if arrows are standardized genitals like Agnar, Wayne of the Hights,
and HL Gilli can make up lots (2500 for the last Gulf War) and you don't
have to worry about having enought arrows to last the war. This also lets
some one how just started to shoot all the combat archery that they want to.
