Tradgang.com is 100% totally devoted to traditional bowhunting. The 3 goals of Tradgang.com are as follows ...
1. To offer a free public access website for those that love the sport of hunting with traditional archery equipment - i.e., selfbows, longbows, and recurves.
2. To create a friendly atmosphere to all. Dedicated to the discussion of all topics that relate to traditional bowhunting.
3. To offer methods of sharing contact information and site links for traditional archery manufacturers, vendors, services and organizations - good folks that have their hearts and souls poured into the sport.
Expect to be respected if you decide to join the gang, because the rule of respect is held highest of the few rules that apply. Tradgang.com has a zero tolerance for disrespect directed to anyone in the gang. If you want to disagree, then please do so in an adult manner. Debate is healthy, as one sword sharpens another, but it must be done in an honorable fashion.
In order to create a forum topic or make a post reply, you must be a registered Trad Gang member. Other than the agreement to the rules of fair play, that's about it. Traditional bowhunting topics will only be allowed. We reserve the right to remove any threads or posts we deem off topic.*** ALL REGISTRATIONS ARE REVIEWED ***
If you have joined Trad Gang solely for the classifieds, please do not bother joining. Our classifieds are a service to our membership, but our classifieds are NOT a prime reason for becoming a member. If you are posting on the classifieds far more than engaging in post conversations, you may find your registration frozen.
NOTE: Trad Gang clearly abides only by fair chase "open country" hunts - "preserve hunts" that employ high fenced in areas are NOT recognized as fair chase and are NOT allowed to be discussed at Trad Gang.
A. Please treat everyone with the same respect and courtesy you expect from others, no matter how difficult that may be. There will be no flaming, hate, politics, religion, sex, sports or drug discussions here. There will be NO discussion or multi-media of non-trad archery hunting weapons such as guns, compound bows, spears, atlatls, throwing knives or hawks, etc.
