I have a nice Red Wing Hunter recurve in the garage I play with. I would like to try and hunt with it someday, but it requires lots of time and I haven't gotten it dialed in yet as far as brace height and such. I traded for it and got a dozen wooden arrows too. I already did a robin hood and ruined one of the arrows. No more 10yd shots for me.

Hey, if you ain't breakin' arrows, you ain't shooting enough.

I love shooting trad archery.

Been shooting strictly recurve this year(Checkmate TD Hunter II) . Going pretty well, Bear, 3 WT does so far. Missed a couple easy shots and lost a Mule deer but having fun with it!

Me. 57lb Southpaw Bow Works longbow. I started with a recurve at 16 and had a brief compound disease for a while but I went back to a longbow 5 years ago. I won't win any target shoots but it's fun.

I see you are also from Rochester. I suspect you've been to Lamont's. When Rick first put the hunting forums on the site I also posted some traditional topics but didn't get much response. I've been shooting traditional on and off for about 20 years. Been collecting a bit too recently. A co-worker found an old painted up recurve in a garbage can last summer so I gave him 20 bucks for it, I removed the paint and I'm looking at a 1960 Bear Polar. Not the greatest shape so I cleaned it up, put on a coat of poly and hunted a bit with it this fall. I'll second mncarphntr on the Chekmate hunter II. I'll be out in the morning with mine trying to fill my so far unused tags!

I love to shoot them, I have a new pse impala and then I have another long bow, and then the one I just completed so I shoot a couple times a week with it something fun to head out and do for 15 minutes, turn the spot lights on and then let some arrows fly.

      Quite abit of new tackle, along with some different plastics options this year. Some of the new products have proven itself on soft water while doing some recon during the past few weeks, fishing first ice spots. Fine tuning "spots on the spot" can pay off big time, before fish become spooky from noise of crowds, which more times then not, makes them less willing to bite, and can make them move to other key locations nearby.

      I'll bet this lure will get a lot of bites! It may even catch a few fish! Does look interesting. Cliff
