Terry, I really hope you can make it to Kalamazoo with the Signature Bow in January. I have been following this thread since it started, it's great to see all the pictures on its road to completion. Great job!!!!

Too many bows to list, and so many more I want to try! Keep the wind in your face, and your broadheads sharp.

Thanks Tony,

Above's a photo of T.J. Conrads, owner of Traditional Bowhunter Magazine. Taking the tradition of our sport all over the world with this great magazine.

Also, a little piece of his history in traditional archery.

What part of the country are you from and what was your earliest memory introducing you to traditional archery.

Answer: "My father picked up two lemonwood longbows back in the late 1950s and we had those for many years. I remember saving up 25¢ to buy three wooden arrow with those pressed on metal tips. I actually killed a jackrabbit (and my mother's prized Bantam rooster, Jose, with one of those longbows. I fell in love with the bow arrow at a very young age.”

Thank you Tony.


Here's a part of Dick's history that will be in "The Tradition Lives On" book, that goes with the bow.

Question: Can you share your most memorable moment you had, such as a hunt or some other event while enjoying this sport.

Answer: "Perhaps topping the most memorable would be the 1965 Trip to Mozambique, Portuguese East Africa. This was from boarding the plane in Omaha to join the group (hosted by Fred Bear) in New York until my return to Omaha about 7 weeks later, like a dream. I had to pinch myself every day that all this was real".

Terry,
Many here including me can only imagine such a hunting experience with the big names you have encountered in your traditional hunting endeavors....

Tony, I've got some very interesting stories that will all be in the book.

I won't get to meet all of these outstanding individuals, but I will have met a great majority of them, especially after I attend Kalamazoo.

Terry

Thanks Tony,

Here's a photo of Barry Wensel and a little of his story about traditional archery. Terry Harris
When asked what was it that inspired him to get into traditional archery?

His answer was, " I really wasn’t “inspired” to get into it, I was just handed a small longbow to “play” with. Our dad taught us the basics/safety, etc. and turned us loose, obviously watching us from a distance. Dad was one who always wanted to teach us but then lets us grow and learn from our mistakes, making suggestions along the way."
