Please list again the requirements for shooting in the bowhunter class, especially the requirements for primitive class. I generally know the arrow and bow requirements but don't know if there are restrictions on string construction. That sounds like a fun thing to do. Is it used only in the Fall Rendezvous?
The bowhunter award goes to the highest combined score for traditional, longbow and primative rounds shot by the same archer at a fall rendezvous. The requirements for each class are listed at tbof.org but i have copied them here:
Shooters in this class will shoot a longbow, recurve or flatbow that does not contain fiberglass or carbon laminations in its working limbs. Epoxy or other synthetic adhesives are permitted on laminated bows. Only wood arrows may be used in the primitive class. Only self-nocked arrows may be used.
Competitive archers will shoot a longbow or flatbow that when braced, does not allow the string to contact the face of the bow. This class permits wood arrows only for competitions.
Recurves, longbows, flatbows and primitive bows of any design are permitted in this class. Any type of arrow may be used.
This award has been in existence since we changed the fall rendezvous format to the current set up. There has been some discussion about switching the format back to a two-day arrangement like the Spring state championship shoot. If that happens, there will not be a bowhunter award for obvious reasons. We only have a small number of people shoot all three classes right now.
