Rusty is hereby banned from displaying any additional pictures of his "traditional" deer harvests from the 70's until he does it again in 2017. lol

I shoot a 2015 PSE Source HD and a 1972 Bear Kodiak 50#

 

Due to a lot of overtime at work this year I was not able to get out with the Bear.  I will get back out with it in the 2017 season, but still love shooting the compound also.

Been shooting traditional only for about ten years now. I've been very into more "modern" recurves lately (metal ILF risers/ Olympic limbs) so I kind of feel like I'm "cheating" lately!

It's all good. Enjoy...

Mathews SBXT. I really wish I could shoot traditional again but after multiple surgeries on both shoulders, they are wrecked. I could never shoot enough to be good with trad gear. I can only do 15 or so arrows a day, if that, on a good day. Have to stay with the compound, and may not be able to do that for too many more years. I really miss the connection to the bow and arrow you get shooting trad gear, fingers on the string, instinctively. There really is nothing quite like it. It's archery/bow hunting in the purest sense, a very different feeling that you get with the compound but one I just can't do any longer. 


I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation UNDER GOD, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

2010 Matthews Z7, 65#...  The most lethal weapon I have ever used.   I also have a 48# Custom Rampart Recurve that I dabble in, but I need to commit more time to practicing with it before I dare launch an arrow at game. I was nearly proficient this past summer and thought about it, but then practice time ran short.  It's a goal - may never fully switch over but I would like to shoot some deer with it (Someday - the "8th" day of the week that is)

Both compound and recurve
Theres more fun hunting with the handicap of a bow than the surness of a gun!The history of the bow and arrow is the history of mankind!

I'm drooling over the Denali.  It looks beautiful and the numbers are amazing on it.  I need to get in to the shop and shoot one.  Actually, I don't need to do that. I don't have the cash for a new bow right now.
