    Hey guys, new to the forum but not really new to traditional archery. Like a lot of guys years ago I learned to shoot archery with a recurve, my father's old Ben Pearson Raider. I have a lot of fond memories of he and I at the nightly "Budweiser shoot-off" empty beer can back field shooting...

    Hi all, So I just joined and wanted to quickly introduce myself. I've been bowhunting for 30 years and have been getting tired of the mechanical nature of compounds over the last couple years. So I decided to take the plunge into the world of recurves in hopes of reconnecting with the fun...

    So I didnt see the shot, but I heard a loud yell and when I looked over this young fella [late teens/early twenties maybe] fling his compound bow. Next, he throws his release trigger in the opposite direction and storms faced. He was with an older guy, maybe his dad or uncle, who just...

    Measured from string to back of bow. 29in. I do plan on using a plunger/blade type rest. My question is would 29.5in be a good arrow length?

    Hello, my name is Billy. I'm new to the site and new to trad altogether. I was on the verge of buying a Samick Sage to get the ball rolling (or arrow flying:) and decided to wait and read Viper1's book. Yesterday I pulled the trigger (or released the string:) on a Rambo warf from this site and...

    Thought I would say hello. I grew up shooting longbows but gave up archery for a long time. I just recently started getting back into it and picked up an old Shakespeare Wonderbow Necedah recurve to shoot and am now working on converting a Bear Black Bear riser. So I guess I have the passion...

    Hey guys, New to this forum, but not to traditional! When I was younger I grew up on a recurve, but was handed a compound and progressed from there! However, as a very avid duck hunter I really wanted to try shooting on wth a bow so traditional started creeping back into my mind. Now, I was...

    I have been looking at Bear recurves. My consumer training from birth tells me that the 60" Super Kodiak should be a step above the 60" Kodiak. Yet the Super costs less. Why is the Kodiak priced $150 lower than the Super? Thanks
