Default New to Bowhunting

Chokma (hello) everybody from the Chickasaw Nation, located south-central in the greatest state in the Union, Oklahoma.

I've been a hunter for over twenty years, and recently broke down and bought a bow. I'm a meat hunter and gun has done the job for years, muzzleloader is interesting, but bowhunting just seems to have gotten under my skin. My oldest son has a little Genesis bow that he loves and I want in on the action too.

I love the Archer's Choice shows, glad to find a great site and active forum, looking forward to participating.

Hello and welcome!! I'm glad you found us!!

Picking up a bow for the first time kinda feels like...you knew a part of you was missing and until you handled that bow, you just didn't know what it was. Ok, I know that sounds corny, but that's how I felt when I first started.

How old is your son?

Enjoy the forum! I hope we can teach you as much as you teach us.

Default bow

Welcome Bro.,
Man since I got a bow, I've just about put the guns away for good. Something about the stick in hand that takes me way back in time. Good to see a Okie on, my Mom lived in Pauls Valley for years, that's some good looking land up there. Gonna be in Gore in two weeks, I'll hollor at you next trip to Turner Fall's. Randy

My oldest boy is 8. I have another boy who is 3. They are both getting into hunting. I had a traditional bow when I was a kid, and we still have three or four tribal members that make the Chickasaw-style bows. I make ball sticks but haven't yet tried my hand at making the old-school bows.

Call me a sell-out, but for my first bowhunting experience I really felt the need for a good rest, peep and modern pin sight. (80% let-off is pretty handy too). Maybe I'll get all traditional in the future, ha ha ha. Like I mentioned before, I'm not a trophy hunter, just a meat hunter, and I want the edge that modern tools provide.

Holler at me, we'll hit Bob's Pig Shop and talk stick and string.

Awww, that's not selling out. Each generation has it's "improvements". I'm a meat hunter too...learned from my family. I always wanted to see the antlers of the elk they killed, but the said they were too heavy to pack out and you can't eat them anyway. lol Don't get me wrong, if a nice buck come by, I'm gonna whack him and put him on the wall! I just don't go out of my way to do it.
