maybe a longbow only course at Baltimore for the Pirates this year??? I have been shooting and hunting with my zebra wood longbow made for me by Ron Foley years ago...the poundage is up there, but I love shooting it. To me, a longbow with wood arrahs and a back quiver is as fun as it gets.....it's second season here..and the longbow is going with me....with some hex heads in case I run into a "squack of squirrels"!

Should be an interesting season. Yohon has purged most of his arrow launchers and stocked up on Howard Hills. I intend on leaving the recurves on the wall this fall and toting a longbow and wood arrows in the woods. Matter of fact, I'm waiting on a new Hill to be delivered any day now. Sounds like Mike is going to give it a run with his Montana.

Should be several photos of straight limbed bows laying on dead critters this year.

I like the looks of those feathers. Will I get credit for an assist? :D

So I have only shot, hunted with a longbow for the last 8 years, I buy a TitanIII and now everyone is shooting longbows ?? :? :D
When you take your kid hunting and he says thank you and tells you how much he loves being in the woods with you, your day just isn't going to get any better than that.

I stopped trying to keep up with those guys....I admire the longbow and I'm sure those guys will stack some deer up with them....

Me? I'm sticking with my Titan 3... I have tried longbows but for some reason I tend to shoot high-low-left-right with them consistently :D
