    Not sure if there is already a thread out there but figured I would start one. Most of us are not doing this to survive which means we are doing it for the love. My focus is not on the target.. it is inward. It is a meditation. I love the way it feels to draw back a traditional bow. Tension...

    What’s up guys and gals? I wanted to introduce myself. I have been an archery hunter for the past 12 years exclusively. This year I have decided to go from my compound to a recurve. I’m shooting a Martin X-200 40#@28”. I’m having a great time learning this discipline and my main intent will be...

    It was a year ago I started back into Traditional archery. I got a lot of help and info here and even some free gear. Gear I didn’t need I passed on to others. I am really having fun, I started out with a Samick Sage and now have a few other bows. Recently I bought my first longbow then a second...

    First traditional bow kill using a Martin Dreamcatcher, Easton Hunter 2117 arrow that I fletched, and 100 grain Judo point. Got him on the corn pile at 10 yards.

    Hi All, I'm new here. I've been shooting for about a year and absolutely love trad archery. The problem that I'm running into is that I need some sort of assessment to know if I'm being successful with my aim and skill. This might come from my background in weightlifting where you could...

    Hey everyone! Its been about 20 years since i've shot a bow, and prior to yesterday, everything i shot was a compound bow. I picked up a martin freedom recurve yesterday, 40lb draw @28", 60" AMO, and im almost guilty about how little I paid for it. I also bought some carbon express predator's...

    Hey all just entered the traditional side of things here last week. I bought a 69” 35# Ben Pearson palamino last summer but never got around to shooting it. Well seems how I “got” the coronavirus. I started shooting it over my 10 day quarantine. I’ve only messed around with a recurve in my...

    Hey everyone, I was recently gift a Bear Kodiak Hunter that I am pretty sure is from 1970 or so. serial # KT.... AMO 60" 40x# I think brass medallion. My draw is about 26 in. I am looking for advice. I don't think it's been strung for probably 10+ years, but it did see some good use in it's...

    Anyone use the “ballistic collar” Goldtip XTs? I usually use the regular Goldtip traditionals but was going to try the XTs if there is any actual benefit to the collar for typical shooting.

    I just purchased a second hand Hoyt Dorado recurve with 50# limbs for my first recurve and need to setup some arrows for it that I would want to use for hunting in the future. Honestly I’m not sure where to start when it comes to arrow spine, point weight, and arrow length and am looking for...

    I think I might have messed up . I wanted to try some carbon arrows . Read Gold Tip Traditionals were pretty good arrows . With the lower poundage I’ve been shooting , I’ve been drawing 28.5-29” I shoot off the shelf , split finger . So, I go to the GT Spine chart and for me shooting 28-32#...

    Hello Everyone I'm both new to traditional archery and this forum! I shot compound bows for 20 years now and just had the desire to go traditional. I know its gonna be a challenge and a learning process feels like I'm starting bowhunting/shooting all over again! I was advised on another forum...

    I've been wondering about the reason behind the wood-like texture on traditional arrow shafts. I'm in the impression there must be a practical reason for putting those "imperfections" on the arrows rather than for aesthetics. Does it help with shooting... like off the shelf? Does it work in...
