The Odyssey of a Traditional Archer

After twenty-five years as a dedicated compound bow shooter, I recently decided to reenter the world of traditional archery. However, while I know quite a bit about compound bows, I knew almost nothing about recurve bows other than my fond memories of my first bow; a Sears fiberglass recurve bow. But, I also recall my year’s long odyssey to find the perfect compound bow during which I owned six or seven different bows of different brands and even different draw lengths and I wanted to avoid the same experience when purchasing my recurve bow if possible. Therefore, I fist set about learning all I could about recurve bows before making my purchase and thus, I thought that since I am certain that other archers are undoubtedly facing the same dilemma, that it might be beneficial for me to write down what I learned so that others will not have to spend the many hours of research that I spent searching and then reading numerous different web sites.

Compound Bows for Beginners

Archery has been growing in prominence both as a hobby and as a sport. This can be credited to the increase of exposure of archery as a hobby in various media platforms. Television programs such as Arrow and movie blockbusters such as the Hunger Games trilogy all helped contribute to the recent popularity of archery among the youth and even among adults.

A Guide To Choosing The Ideal Archery Bows

Choosing the right archery bows may be a personal choice, but also a very important one. A number of factors come into play. The good news is that there are various different bows out there for archers to choose from. Selecting the right archery bow greatly increases the archer’s comfort while shooting, as well as the accuracy. Below is a guide to choosing the ideal archery bows.

Bow Fishing Gear: What to Buy and Why

When most people think of bow fishing, they tend to envision expensive Bass boats with the hunter standing in the bow and a partner poling the boat from the stern. However, many non-game species of both fresh water and saltwater fish move into shallow, grassy, coves to spawn in the Spring and thus, they are readily accessible to wading bow fishermen during this period. Consequently, all you really need to pursue this super exciting sport is a bow, a bow fishing reel, half a dozen bow fishing arrows and appropriate points for them, and a pair of waders and you too can follow the age old technique of pursuing “coarse” fish in the shallows with a bow and arrow. However, because the gear you choose will either positively or adversely affect your bow fishing experience, it is important that you purchase the correct gear. Thus, in the following article, you will find the information you need to make an informed choice.

Bow Fishing: An Excellent Way to Extend Your Season

Mention bow fishing to an avid deer hunter and you are most likely to get a puzzled look. However, the fact is that more and more archers are discovering the thrill of stalking “course fish” with a bow. In fact, bow fishing is an excellent way to introduce young archers to the sport of hunting since it does not require camouflage clothing, tree stands, ground blinds, or the patience of Jobe to sit still as a statue for hours on end without speaking.
