This book was recommended by several responders to a thread I posted about "newbie to trad shooting." I did purchase the book, but, since I joined a 3D indoor league this winter, I have been practicing with my compound, and working a bit of OT, did not have a lot of time to read the book. Ok, college/pro football has a little something to do with that. Actually I do not own a traditional bow yet, hope to rectify that next month. Anyway, here in NJ we are getting blasted with a pretty good snowstorm, so, why not read some more of Shooting the Stickbow, while waiting for the storm to pass. Amazing how much info is crammed onto the pages, especially for beginners who want to shoot trad. Well worth to $20.00 or so the book costs. Disclaimer: I have no connection to the author, just thought I would post this as I see posts almost daily asking for info on how to get started shooting trad.
