  1. Traditional Archery
    Is there anything to consider when string walking or using a fixed crawl on a Kodiak or other traditional one piece hunting bow? Specs are, 60" 40# Nock is 1/4" above the feather rest. My concern is that there's no tiller so maybe changing the nock point? I switched from Olympic under chin...
  2. Bowhunting and Bowhunter Sub Forums
    I am thinking of trading in the compound to get a traditional bow. I primarily hunt whitetail and eventually want to elk hunt. Can someone please point me to a company who currently produces traditional bows that are short, 55” or less, with a high draw weight. I don’t mind if it is a recurve...
  3. Howatt
    I've posted this question on the Martin forum, as well. Anyone have a sense for the state of affairs with Howatt? Martin has a model on the website that I hadn't heard of before, the Hibrido, and new color variations on existing models. New prices, too. But there's almost no information there...

    I've just recently bought a longbow it's "Slick Stick" from Bodnik-bows Germany. When I was setting up an arrow rest I've noticed a crack in the bamboo laminates that goes over the middle part on the "back side" of the bow. Crack is ca. 4-5 inch. long and goes from shelf all the way down the...
  5. How to Shoot
    I've been hunting with a compound bow for most of my life, with my share of success. So I wanted to challenge myself more, so I got into traditional archery. I'm still trying to figure everything out and I wrote an article about my learning process...
  6. Tom Turgeon - Q&A Bow Building Forum
    This seems to be a fairly common question from bowyers who have 5-10 bow builds under their belts: Tom, I was wondering if I have to handle the reflex reflex and the reflex deflex staves any differently than past Traditional bow builds. Are there any major difference in how I need to handle the...
  7. Traditional Archery
    I have been shooting compound for few years now but just started traditional shooting and it is so much more fun. I shoot a few times a week and the fake feathers seem to be warping and wavy. I shoot off the shelf and the arrows aren't noticeably flying erratically but the OCD side of me is...
  8. General Archery Discussion
    Hello, I've recently gotten into traditional archery and I'm ready to purchase my first bow. I know I want a longbow but I don't know what model or poundage. I'd like to hear some suggestions. I'm over six feet tall, in my 20s, can easily shoot a 65# longbow but I want something that I can get...

    Sorry about the sound not synchronized ! It kind of reminds one of an old Kung Fu Movie.
  10. Traditional Archery
    Hello fellow traditional archers, Rookie Recurve shooter, Harry here. Recently I am looking for a new bow for myself; and I heard many people recommend buying an old used bear bow. I saw many nice used bear bows but I was considering about the length of bows. The one of the most popular bow of...
  11. Traditional Archery
    I just bought my first adult bow, a used bow from eBay, and it looked fine. Nice blond and dark wood recurve, 45#@28" with string. Tested the weight, and it felt like a 45# bow to me, was able to draw it fine. I was practicing my draw every day, pulling to full draw and letting it back to rest...
  12. Traditional Archery
    Hey guys, I am attempting at building my first longbow. I followed a build along through www.poorfolksbows.com. The build along called for a red oak bow with a sheetrock tape and glue backing. I decided to try a hickory backing. I ripped the hickory to less than an 1/8 but slightly larger than...
