Hey everyone, welcome to the show. Today’s guest is Jade Helmich of Full Draw Film Tour. For those of you who may not know what FDFT is, I would definitely suggest visiting their website and reading more about it and of course pick up some tickets for the location closest to you! I’ve been to multiple shows and must say it is a very well done event and something I look forward to every year. Jade breaks down all the stops on the tour this year, and gives a general description of what the submissions look like this year. We talk a lot about what makes films good, anywhere from the importance of a storyline, to the type of equipment being used.

Hey everyone, welcome to the show! On today’s episode I am joined by the guys from The Push Archery, and we dive in deep on setting up and shooting an ILF bow. We quite literally cover everything there is to consider when it comes to tuning and getting set up, so there is quite a bit of information in this one. You might hear us using words or phrases that may not make sense if you don’t have much experience tuning a bow, so I would encourage you to reach out to myself or The Push Archery pages and ask if there is anything that you don’t quite understand. I hope you all enjoy listening to this episode, thanks for tuning in!
