    Default Archers/Bow hunters

    Well since there is so many members that share different past times, I got to thinking, How many Archers/Bow Hunters do we have Here.

    Since 2006 I have been Hunting with Traditional Bows only. I have a Jerry Hill Stalker deluxe, Bear Alaskan, Self made Red Oak long Bow ( I made it Myself) and a PSE Kingfisher recurve. I use mainly ash Shaft arrows with 160grn 3-Blade Snuffers, I also have some CX alumnimun 2117 w/Snuffers. So do You Bow Hunt or just like to Shoot Bows Post them Here... Tomorrow I'll take pix of My Bows and the arrows I have..

    I don't shoot so much any more.
    I used to be really into archery, and had several company sponsorships and used to build arrows for a couple of top-tier pros.
    I got bored with it. I still like bowhunting, mostly just for the time in the woods observing.

    I did as a teen living in the NWT. Back then I used my dad's compound bow, wouldn't be able to tell you what brand 25 years later. For a few years I had some junker fiberglass bows that a high school was tossing because they were considered dangerous. Toronto has an outdoor bow range right in the middle of the city, I used to go down there with them. Nothing to hunt but straw targets. I left the bows behind when I moved back to Newfoundland a few years ago unfortunately. Keep threatening to buy one.

    Lately I've been into slinging, as in David and Goliath style, not a slingshot. Newfoundland has trillions of perfectly round stones for slinging. Haven't tried to hunt with one though, I doubt it would be legal due to the odds you'd only injure an animal rather then kill it. It's VERY hard to be consistently accurate with a sling.

    It's been quite a while since i got my old PSE compound up in a tree.
    I was really into it in the early to mid 90's but my job now keeps me outa the tree
    I hope to one day get back into it because the adrenaline rush when you place that arrow through just the right spot is addictive.
    The peace and quiet of the woods, the sights, the feeling of being in touch with nature and the primitive nature of what you are doing apeals to me.
    Thanks for posting.
    It brings back some great memories for me.

    Has always interested me but never got into it,did learn some great stuff the other night tho.
    Took the wife over to her Ikebana guru friends house the other night,in the corner of her living room was a Bow,had to be at least 10 ft tall and a quvir (SP) of arrows at least 4 ft long.
    I said Hiro,what is that,Turns out when she was a young girl in Japan (shes 87) she trained under a master in archery,explained that it is a grueling mental artform where one sort of meditates before a shot and uses mind power to guide the arrow to the target,sorry to go O.T but was very interesting.

    HNSB - I wish that I would have known this last weekend! I have a bag of fletching from a turkey I got last spring.

    I like but don\t shoot traditional very much. I have a bow I made in junior high, about '75. I dont shoot it often because i am afraid of breaking it.

    I like shooting spots for some reason. I have around 20 Rhinharts in my shed. make me an offer and my wife would be happy.

    i have read about and am trying to incorperate a form of te japanese style. I have a hard time of learning just the form and not caring where the arrow strikes.

    Target Panic is a bitch!

    I read Core Archery several years ago. I got so worked up about my form that I could barely touch paper at five yards. At that time, I think a score on a 5 spot round would have been about 10.
    A friend and archery coach had me shoot nothing but stumps with a longbow for a month to recover (forget about form and find the fun in it again).
    I never looked at that book again.

    I love to bowhunt. I'm no archery pro, but spending time at the range is one of the better ways to pass an afternoon I know of.

    I think there are a lot of parallels between the reasons a guy uses a bow and the reasons he uses a straight razor.
