I am a traditional longbow archer and I have a few years of experience under my belt and I also do competition too.

Compounds, interesting as I did have one for a while but the fun was not there for me in the compound Wink

Practice, practice and practice some more. I hunt every year with a bow, and it's great fun. Find a location where the county or fish & game set up blood tracking locations as well. Once you make the shot, you need to be able to find your kill. Wink

Congrats on joining the archery club. Over time, you'll learn to love it even more.

Silent Death! It's great.

Drew,

I try to get out with my bow a couple times a year. I think it's the most sporting way to hunt that there is. Last year I got a couple of turkeys and a deer.

The most scared I've ever been in my life wasn't in combat or jumping out of airplanes. It was a few years ago when I made a bad shot at my first black bear. I just pissed him off and I didn't have a sidearm. I got lucky and he didn't come after me. I was able to take a second shot that was on the mark.

i`m trying to find a sport thats more quiet than shotgun hunting. (hunting with a bow is illegal here)
i dont know why that is -we are aloud to hunt most things with an airgun at 12 ftlbs, and a bow can kick out 50 +

i`m planning on starting on the field archery, hitting pictures on haybales.

i prefer skill based shooting other than lenses. (if you know what i mean)

I used to make my own crossbows. Da*ned things were powerful and accurate. You don't need a compound bow, you need a leaf spring from a pickup truck and a good winch. Slow second shot, though.

Honestly? Fella, killing animals for sport is so wrong. On so many levels.

Unless you're a vegan be very careful how you judge me. I eat everything I kill. The same way man has done for thousands of years.

For the new archer the best thing is to have a pro set up your bow. It's critical draw length is precise so you can achieve a consistent and comfortable anchor point.

I use a release [not a finger shooter] and anchor my index finger knuckle behind my ear lobe.

If you can have a pro watch you shoot and help out with form you will get better much quicker.

When I started I joined a local league. Some members when national team. some of those guys were splitting arrows at 20 metres. Razz
