NOW is your chance...to REALLY give something back....not only to Trad Bowhuning, but to yourself.
TradGang would like to preserve some very special stories. Stories from a life long Trad Bowhunter with a spectacular perspective of the hunt, and a way with words....and we need your support to do so.
The original story teller of TradGang is going to do a book......Mr. Charlie Lamb.
Many of you have read Charlie's stories here, heard some told on 'The Bowhunters of TradGang' DVD, but there's a lot of stories beyond those.....and there will be some of those unique hunts in the book also. For those of you that haven't been here that long...you've missed a bunch from Charlie...so now is your chance to understand why we need to do this.
Charlie has stuff compiled at this point, and all we need to do is pre-sell enough to get this done. I hope we can pull this off....cause our lifestyle is truly deserving of such.
No need at this point for me to stand on ceremony, or romance this plea....let's just get it done shall we????
There are two ways to help out...both get YOU a book.
#1 - $35 will get a copy sent to you. And, with your name added to the book in the section of Contributors.
#2 - $100 will also get a copy sent to you with your name added to the Contributor section, but your copy will be PERSONALLY signed, meaning a personal note to you signed by Charlie....not just a signature.
So, make sure you contact all your friends....tweet, text, flicker....what ever it takes...
GET THE WORD OUT!!!!

I've bought books from the author and they usually sign them without my having to pay extra for it, so are the proceeds going to a charity?

This is a little different...we are trying to publish a book for a very limited market, and all we are trying to do is pre-sell enough to make it happen.
As of now, we have enough funds for a run. Don't know if there will be a second.
Most folks don't hunt with wooden bows...yet we do....and our community steps forward to help others more than most groups. Most of us surely don't try and step on our trad brothers. So, we are just carrying on the tradition by trying to provide an item that has been in demand by many here for years.
Yeah...we do things a little different.
Since you spoke of charity....
TradGang is planning on buying a few of this limited run to auction off on the St Judes as well. As you know, since you've been a member so long, its an effort we do every year.

Acedoc, this thread was started in 2012. The book has been published, and is an excellent read. Pm Charlie Lamb here, he may still have a few copies available. It was a limited run production.
