    Any tradtitional guys out there any more?

    I use a 60# Martin "Damon Howatt" Hunter bow. Are there any of us left out there any more? I sure like that bow. It shoots great, has no shock, and is just a really nice bow. What recurve or longbow do you guys use?

    I shoot both a longbow and a compound. I have a 62" 56# pronghorn longbow built by Herb Meland. Its a great bow! Very smooth and no hand shock.

    I hunt with both a compound and my recurve depending on the species. I've been trying to take a coyote with my recrve here lately.......tough buggers to bring in close and arrow. My recurve is a custom Brackenbury made by Jim before he passed. Beautiful piece of art.

    I shoot only traditional, 60lb at 29"- 64" Bob Lee Signature Recurve. I have eased up a bit in the past few years and now use carbon arrows instead of pine.

    I have used a Recurve for 20 years. Have had several brands. But the Bighorn I found fits me will. Harvest several big game animals with it. I shot lift handed! It's 65 at 29" started to use carbon back in the mid 90's. Liked the additional speed.

    Custom 62" T/D Mountain Hunter Longbow by Mark Horne, Horne's Archery, 59@28" with matching recurve limbs; 60" T/D Classic recurve, 60@28", by Mike Palmer, Palmer Archery. Kinda partial to the longbow......sweetest bow I've ever shot.

    Early Bear Recurves I love the feel of history in my hands. Or a Hoyt compound when I want to make sure meat goes in the freezer

    Just got into traditional this year. Enjoyed it so much I sold my compound. It seemed to bring something back to me I was missing? It's a Brackenburry, built by Jim.
