Hi guys,

I've been lurking this forum on & off since 2009 when I was given a recurve. I was a new hunter and never got proficient to the point that I felt confident about shooting a deer. I switched to a compound for many years and worked on learning to become a better hunter and get closer to deer. I've killed 7 now with the compound and have the confidence to switch back to Trad.

I'm shooting quite well out to 20yds and am really enjoying the simplicity and feeling of sitting with my basic gear.

Wish me luck as I try to keep it together and harvest my 1st trad deer this year!

For those who care, I'm using a Ben Pearson Javelina in #50.

I hunted many years with wheels before I switched to 100% trad. Now with two seasons under my belt, there is no way I would switch back. The simplicity is addictive!!!
Good luck out there!!

It is an amazing accomplishment to kill a deer with a stickbow. Once you experience success, things will never be the same again with wheels. Happy hunting!

Good luck bud! don't get discouraged if you have a failure, every person on here has had their share just keep on trucking and you'll get it. There's no words for the feeling after you get your first deer with trad gear, all of that hard work, thousands of arrows flung and countless hours spent shooting all pay off in a big way.

Good luck! I'm right there with you. I've hunted for a compound for years. I got rid of it and am hunting with my longbow this year.

Best of luck. Just pick a spot "LOW" and you will connect.

Many thanks everyone - I'm headed out again this week and hopeful for some opportunities to let one fly. I'm enjoying every second of it so far. The gratification of being accurate with these primitive bows is for sure addictive!

Best of luck to you all as well!
