I would guess he's saying longbows and recurves... no sights and no compounds

I shoot cedar arrows out of a pyramid-style flatbow I made myself. I guess that probably counts.

I have a nice Bob Lee recurve that I play around with. I'd like to hunt with it eventually, but I can't let go of my training wheels (compound) just yet.

There is also going to be a Traditional bow shoot at the Renaissance Festival again this year.

There are not to many...

All I shoot now is recurve. It is a "techy", but it is a recurve. Hoyt Gamemaster 55#@28". I pull short, so I end up with about [email protected] or so.

At one time I had several different curves and a long bow. But things had to be sold a while back to feed the family and keep the electricity on if yoiu know what I mean. Now it is just the Hoyt, and a couple of others.

i'm 44 and Ive had my recurve since I was 15 it was a gift from my dad and componds have come and gone but the recurve remains. I hope that some day my son will shoot it.

2 years ago was the first time in 23yrs that I stretched a string and man was it fun to shoot hopefully this year I can stick a deer with it last year didnt get out but twice.

I don't but it was on their HSOforum. You can register early or the day of. I think they are only taking a certain number of entries so if you're interested I would pre-register.

    • Oh, you haven’t seen me upset.  After I miss 5 straight - then I get upset! 😁
    • dog is good too, did not know it then, but when I was over seas and had some and found out later.. it was the last tome ...  would not say try it cause they are my friends....
    • I'm sure it's tasty, but I have never tried dog either. Calm down people, I am just kidding around.   We used to keep landscaping supplies out on a farm in Rosemount back in the day, and blast away at them when they emerged from the barn. Sticking with the Clint theme.............. Farm cats gotta eat, same as worms.   Being a member of the dove family, I am sure the meat is simular.  
    • Remember, he liked the neighbors food after he tried it. 😋
    • I fished most of the lake in scout mode today.  Found walleyes early on midlake humps and bars in 18-24 fow.  Got a couple to go on jigging raps but then they shut off.  Spent the rest of the day trying to pin down a panfish pattern.  Found good numbers of sunfish in shallow cabbage beds(6-9 fow).  None were huge but good numbers of 8-8 1/2" gills.  A few crappies are mixed in with them and some are suspending off the break.  There are also good numbers of sunfish in or just outside the reeds.   Most of the sunfish ran smaller though although there were some keepers there too.  Pike and bass I did not target but saw others do so successfully.   Plenty of bass in the reeds and spinnerbaits seemed to be what most were using.   Troll over the weeds and you will be rewarded with pike.
    • I got primary on the Crow-Hassen with a rank of #21. New experience for me as well, with MBRB, been a member for a few years just could never get a hunt.   DanBo - That was one I had on my list as I have a buddy that lives just a few blocks up from there.
    • try them before you knock them....
    • we've only  used the adapter so far at the campsites, as I've only seen the standard plug in's at the boxes; and only running some lights and AC at the most at one time, no fridge to run
    • That is crazy nice Hoey.  😎   But for $3,400 I'll just keep my dirt flakes on the floor and may be pick up another used sled or wheeler! 😋
