- Nov 2, 2003First off is where is "around here"? Second, Don't try pulling an old
wood longbow without oiling and cleaning it first and then gradually warm
it up with gradual slow pulls to short draws first. Draw to the point
where you just feel resistance, let down then draw an inch or two
further, let down, and repeat until you reach your full draw. Do this
slowly and listen and feel for any cracking or signs of failure. Be sure
to wear safety goggles rated for racquetball or similar impact sport use
and a heavy, long sleeved shirt, long pants, and closed toe shoes. An
exploding bow can really hurt. The best place to check a bow's pull is
with your local marshal or pro shop.
