Started with a Recurve in the 1960's.

Changed to a Bear Compound and upgraded to a Hoyt Compound in the 1980's through the mid 1990's.

Back to using Owen Jeffrey Recurve 1990's.

Recently changed to using a Leon Stewart Longbow.

 

Changing to a 45# longbow has provided much physical comfort, allowing the use of a heavy arrow, and shoot with the utmost in quietness. 

 

Have had to sit on the sidelines for the past year due to an injury at work forcing me to undergo major rotator cuff surgery, and other damage I can't even pronounce.

Surgery on both shoulders and elbows has caused a slight postponement in all of my outdoor activities.

 

Hopefully, come this spring I will be able to have use of both my arms again.

Then its practice, practice, practice to get back to being able to shoot 20 - 25 yards instinctive again.

Ephesians Chapter 6:12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Joshua Chapter 1:9  
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Have a bear outbreak will be splurging for a new bow over the summer, maybe a long bow too I've always wanted to take a deer with a long bow but feel I should master the compound more before I partake in that chase

I'm mostly traditional, but, I carried a crossbow yesterday! go figure. The last season I hunted with a compound was 95. I got about a dozen, maybe 15 stickbows in the house, and since they all shoot a different arrow that means dozens of dozens arrows and shafts! I love it


without me, my rifle is nothing
