Just plain old fun an can,t wait to shoot with mine some more later.easy on targets ,nothing better than watching that arrow fly like a dart an hitting where you want. we're hooked :oops:

    I used to love shooting trad. Too bad I really wasn't much good at it, or at least not consistent. I made bamboo bows for all 3 boys, and they used to shoot a lot. The youngest really liked it the most, and I think he had some good potential. He was better than I ever was for sure. Doesn't get to shoot anymore, living in Brooklyn and working in Manhattan.:rolleyes:

    I been on the injured list for quite awhile an finally got to shoot my recurve with my new arrows I been setting on .there full length GT traditional weighing in at 455g with razers,125 tips. tuned them bare shaft at ten yds till they went in strait for left,right,up,down.

    I shoot bare bow with fingers,no sights as I just hold it there an let it fly when it looks right.these are my last 3 shots at 15yd ,so I think I,m ready for a deer as I,m pretty consistent at my kill range I set at 20 yd.i had confidence in my shooting from everything I learned before an didn,t seem to need lots of practice as i got back in the groove quick after a few shots.getting my licence soon an try to hunt in the next week or so ,as it,s prime time then for me.
