    I am thinking of buying av recurve for hunting and field shooting. How much diffrence in speed is it between a traditional bow (for example Samick Sage) and a modern ilf recurve (for example Hoyt satori with Uhhka limbs) with same lenght (60"-62") and strenght (45#-50#)? //Peter

    I shot a recurve as a kid before moving on to compounds. My brother has been shooting trad bows for several years now, and I want to get in on the fun too. Shooting the recurve well as a kid always eluded me, and I've wanted to revisit it since then to see if I can learn to do it well. I've...

    My first riser was ILF. And all my risers since have been ILF. It's great. I can buy and sell and trade limbs endlessly for all sorts of 'change.' But part of me has been thinking it would be really nice to just shoot an old traditional recurve off the shelf. String it up and shoot. No...

    I am fairly new to traditional archery. Started about a year ago. And this shoot in McAlester OK. Was my first event to attend. What a great time we had. My brother, my son, and I made the 2 hour journey. We did not shoot well enough to make it into the shoot off. But we had great time. Had...

    Thought I would let people know about the Wapiti Bowmen-Lebanon Or. Safari. If you shoot BH, BB or Traditional, this shoot is a great way to meet others and also some of the best finger and non-sighted archers in the West. I am including a link and I hope it works. If we can get a head count...

    The GT traditional 340's I shoot are 5/16 diameter and 10.5 grains per inch. 3 rivers archery offers a GT traditional classic 340, that has a 9/32" diameter, 12.1 grains per inch, and an 80 grain insert. Would the smaller diameter and heavier arrow make the Classic a better penetrating arrow?

    Hi, first off sorry for the long post, I have many questions to ask. I have been bow hunting with a compound bow for 14 years now and I am ready to take the plunge into traditional archery. About 4 years ago I bought a custom made 30# flat bow from kees longbows just to mess around with but I...

    The Traditional World Championship at Twin Oaks is less than a month away. I’ll be there, but I haven’t made up my mind yet whether I’ll be shooting Modern Longbow or Recurve. Who else is going? Be blessed. Toby

    FYI Decided to pick up a chrongraph and play around checking speeds of various bows this was done using a caldwell chrongraph from cabelas. Could not weigh the carbon arrow so I went by what it said on the shaft and tip weight , arrow was about 300 grains with a 100 grain field point , so...

    I hope that the news I received on the internet is not correct. I received a notification that one of my old staples, "traditional bowhunter" was going to be available on in a digital format. can anybody verify? :(

    I live near to Verdugo Hills Archers so was planning on stopping by probably this Friday afternoon or Saturday maybe -- never have shot 3D so I won't be competing but wanted to at least see what the event is like. Wondering if anyone will be there from this forum? Thanks.
