My primary archery interest has always been hunting with a little local 3D, and some bigger traditional rendezvous now and again. Since I'm recently semi-retired, I did take in our state's IBO Triple Crown this year and a couple larger IBO shoots. We don't have any venues anywhere close by that shoots indoors.
I admire "good" barebow shooters and setting up a barebow outfit. Don't know why. I'll probably never use it anywhere except here at the house.
My current favorite bows are my hunting outfit; a Satori riser with Uukha limbs and an old Matrix riser with Uukha limbs.
Hunting is my Primary, I love shooting in the backyard. Archery is something that I enjoy equally with friends or shooting alone, I find it relaxing. I would like to start going to the big shoots but I'm not ready.
As far as favorite bows???That is really tough, I guess if I could have just 1 it would be my 21 Dalaa. Having said that the Widow seems to always be strung. It's difficult to say... it's definitely the one pictured below.....Oh and Walker's Icarus, that's my favorite too.
Hunting is my primary interest, then everything else in no particular order. Although I spend much more time in the back yard or shooting 3D throughout the year. Early bow season was Sept 1-30th. I made it out a whopping 3 times. Being self employed I can typically manipulate my schedule in September to allow for 3-4 trips to the woods each week but this September kicked my butt.
For me, all but bowhunting.
I love the historical value of archery. Mostly Asian styles, but really love the English longbow as well. I try to understand and replicate those techniques so that I have an idea how it was back then.
