Traditional Archery Resources

(1/4) > >>

DeltaEchoVictor:
Here are some traditional archery resources that I utilize.  They are geared toward the recurve/longbow shooter because that's what I primarily hunt with.  I've not shot a compound in a long time, but for those that do, please feel free to add your own resources & links.

Trad Gang is pretty much one stop shopping for all the information you could possibly want.  It's a very active community & they love helping out new traditional archers, never be hesitant to ask a question on this board.  Someone will come along & point you in the right direction.

Think of the Leatherwall as the local trad archery coffee shop.  It's also a very active community but it's loosely moderated & there's a lot of general discussion about a bit of everything there.

http://thefaintertrails.freeforums.org/index.php
The Fainter Trails is another good forum, but it's one I haven't gotten to spend as much time on as the others.  More good people who talk about everything hunting related.  For you lovers of the blackpowder smoke pole it might be a good place to start.

Paleoplanet isn't archery specific but it is all things "the old way".  If you want to start learning about primitive skills, paleoplanet is a good start.

A couple more...

And of course... The Traditional Bowyers Bibles  Volumes 1 through 4 are great references to everything traditional archery.

Debo:
Check out John McPherson's books.  He goes into both the "survival bow" for field expedience and actually making one one that will last.  All around good stuff especially making baskets and containers.  Very down to earth folks that also teach the US Army SERE school instructors.

Hope this helps,

Does anyone know of a good archery store in Southern California? We can find a ones that have a lot of compound gear but we are looking for recurves and beginners lessons.  We have been trying to find a good one. Not only are they hard to find but the ones that have found have not been very complete as far as gear goes. Also one place was so rude that we just walked out.

No & I'm afraid that's going to be pretty common.  There just isn't a lot of money in traditional archery for most shops, so trad archery tends to be an after thought. 

Sorry those folks were rude to y'all, that's a shame.  I don't know how much I can help from afar, but I'd be glad to help as much as I can.
