Where is everyone? Nobody shooting or hunting with traditional bows anymore. Just started shooting my Black Widow again after 5 yrs. Still a beautiful looking and shooting bow. What's everyone else shooting?

Planning to take a bear this spring with my Hoyt Buffalo recurve. A first for me. Just picked up some 50# limbs so i'll be legal for weight. Been practicing in my basement pretty steady throughout the winter and feel confident that i'll be ready by spring.

Nice to hear. Not enough traditional shooters anymore.Lots of work to become a good traditional archer.I shoot 53 lbs at 28" and shoot Grizzly stick tapered weight forward arrows and a 200 grain single bevel broadhead. Arrow weight is 600 gr and are Fletched with 5" Orca cut real Turkey right wing feathers. Nice setup. Shoots really well.

I've always been impressed with you guys that can shoot sticks and strings and make those telephone poles go where you want ... but I'll stick with my bow with training wheels and looks like a tv antenna that shoots skinny sticks . Hoping you do well in all your hunting adventures. Suckers open on Thurs , carp to follow , bear , turkey , deer and moose are on my to do list this year .... I'm also an archer of opportunity so ducks geese and grouse beware ... Good luck and play safe !

GOOD LUCK AND PLAY SAFE !

I've only ever shot compound and honestly never touched a trad bow until i bought this used recurve in December. When i first started shooting, i was definitely humbled, to say the least. That said, I set myself an optimistic goal of taking a bear this spring with it. And a 15 yard shot on a bear on a bait seems the best way to wet my feet in tradbow hunting.

That's a great setup. I haven't got my setup ready yet. Right now, I have a set of Easton Axis Traditionals with 4" feathers(plastic) and i'll be using my 50# limbs. I have a pack of German Kinetics Silverflame 125's sitting around, but i think i'd like more weight up front if possible, like your setup.
That said, bare shafts are flying good with 125gr field points, so i'll have to find a set of 200gr field points to tune with before i commit to new broadheads. I'm at 465gr right now with 125 heads.

I checked it out as soon as i read your post about your setup. Very cool stuff. I've found that the shipping costs from US places like this are a deal breaker for me. Last time I tried to buy something from '3 Rivers Archery' I put on the brakes when I got to the shipping cost section, and that was just for a 3-under tab.

Would like to try my longbow maybe this year, but it all depends on how much practice I get. Crossbow’s my default.
