Brock Posted May 11, 2010 Share Posted May 11, 2010 (edited) Picked me up another bow for hunting....first new one since 1998/9. I was going to hunt with my very first recurve I bought as an adult back in 1992 and was shooting it for past month....but might have to put her away for the new bitch! Shot her in yard tonight....slings a heavy wooden douglas fir arrow right nicely even with 160gr point and big old turkey barred fletching LOL Who is up for a bear hunt next Spring...bow only in Saskatchewan. Mike???? I have been hunting with recurves, longbows and selfbows since late 1980s...after shooting compounds a few years before but got bored. Pretty much shoot everything with stick and string now a days...deer, hog, rabbit, squirrel, bear, turkey. Still use shotgun for dove and quail....as I can barely hit them with a double barrel 20g much less a bow. LOL I am also in middle of making one out of some pignut hickory that is about 70% done...and have a stave of yew sitting here as well for next one. Robertson Stykbow 60" 52#@28", Coco Bolo and Myrtle riser, Juniper limbs with bamboo core Other bows: Jeffery Royal Hunter 62" 60#@28, Mtn Camo riser, red oak limbs. Habu 64" 60#@29, brown riser, brown limbs Joe Mattingly made Osage selfbow, 52# at 28", elk grip, static recurve tips Arrows: 31" Douglas Fir, 65-70#, 160 Ribtek heads 30.5" Sitka Spruce, 65-70#, 160 Snuffer heads 31" Chundoo, 50-55#, 160 Ribtek heads I know Mike (Hunters Friend) is a bowhunter...and so is BOWHUNTER....anyone else shoot a bow.....wheels, primitive or traditional?
