I will also say that I was drawn to trad archery because of seeing people who could shoot with such a natural, flowing rythym like that. I was tired of being a machine. Unfortunately, I don't shoot very well unless I work like a machine.

It also seems like only longbow shooters ever look that smooth and natural; I've not seen any recurve shooters duplicate the kind of shooting, in terms of relaxed smoothness, that I see on those vids.

Paul...I shoot recurves and selfbows the same way.

I might change bows, but I don't change form or style.

It just seems like longbow shooters have a bit more flair, while recurve shooters usually tend to remain a bit more orthodox, Terry. Something about the lightness and slim profile of the longbow, perhaps? I never could learn to love the longbow, but l love to watch good longbow shooters.

I don't know...I think a lot of us (including me) shoot both recurves and longbows.

I heat ya Paul...I do prefer longbows by far.

Light in the hand, always seem quieter, and I don't need a stringer...can't keep up with one anyway, same reason I use a glove instead of a tab [biglaugh]

That is the main reason I never really tried to shoot a tab, other than the fact that they hit my lip, and I never could trim one so that it didn't.

Kyle,
Take some time to watch the videos carefully. The answer to your question as well as many that you may have will be evident.

This is a great resource for a would-be hunter having to improvise a shot...happens all the time in the real world.

Ah...yes...and I demonstrate in in The Bowhunters of TradGang DVD. Some folks claim that canting to bow is for keeping the arrow on the shelf...that is only a band aid for an improper grip on the string.
