I'll probably hunt with

BamaBows Tribute, 64" 57@28
Snuffers or Tree Sharks (160-165 gr) on Superceders
tree stand some, ground some
plaid wool when it cools off (85-90 degrees is a bit warm for wool)
tall rubber boots or Bean Maine Hunting Boot (lots of water standing sometimes)
won't need a quiver since I never miss-I'll only be carrying 1 arrow  [rofl]

So, so many choices! I think I will hunt with any bow and arrow combination I want! Some stand hunting, however when I get to Virginia, the Jefferson National Forest, camping in a canvas wall tent, hunting from the ground, wearing period clothing to match the equipment of the day, spot and stalk, with a little natural ground blind hunting! The bows I will hunt with on this trip are as follows: 1930 Ben Pearson stave bow, static tipped yew wood recurve, rawhide backed, 68"100@28" a real shooter! Ben was a great bowyer! Several yew English longbows by John Strunk, complete with rawhide back and horn tips! 1953 Fred Bear static tipped Kodiak recurve, 64"70@28" sweet as honey! John Schultz, all bamboo the Natural, named "Daylight" 64"64@27"
Arrows will be wood shafts painted white, with three white fletch and a red nock, some may have cresting and barred fletch! It is going to be a simple affair, a love affair! Enjoy your season! Humbly Jacques

I'll be using one of my 3 Schulz made HHA bows...probably mostly with the 58@28 Tembo or the 66@28 Big five.  Mostly from the ground, but some treestand thrown in here and there. 


Most of my hunts will be local so only:

Ace, Grizzly, or Hill heads
Spruce or DF tapered arrows painted full length
Hill Backquiver
File and lil'shaver knife
Barlow in the pocket
license in the pocked and maybe a hit of the deet before I leave the truck
Some TP in the pocket
Sometimes I bring my sweedish walkstool less lately

Using the lone wolf I need a harness and haul line so I don't hunt with it much anymore LOL.

My gear and I from last year:

Not sure as to the arrows yet I'm going to build some from Forrester shafts, lace wood in to 40 to 43# spine range, They're suppose to arrive today sometime. If not those than I have some Elite arrows that I will use. In any event I shall have to either switch points on the Elites or fasten BHs on the shafts I put together. The BHs will be 125grs most likely Zwickies . or steel blunts on some.
  The bow will be a H.H. archery Wesley 50# @ 27." A H.H. back quiver, American leathers glove, TAS hat/cap, plaid shirt[s] and either jeans or kaki long pants, Military style field boots heavy socks. I do not have photo bucket so I will not be posting pictures.

I started this Season off with my Sunset Hill and harvested a doe.  I just got a new mcroom bow and am so impressed with it, will likely use it the rest of the season.  Of course I will be using cedar arrows, with a simmons shark, a howard hill head and Ace as back up, always carry a Judo point too.  From the ground using my torgues seat, tree will be using my chippewa stand.  I also invested in a new set of ASAT grey wolf woolens wool bibs.

Well this is my first post here, but in the spirit of joining along, this year I'll be taking my new-to-me dream bow, my JD Berry Vixen. Cedar arrows with 160 grain Stos out front. The bow is 68", 50# @ 27". Tried a stand for the first time this season today, all the reasons I love brush blinds and my stool came back to me. This bow, and specifically Mr Berry's craftsmanship, has ruined me for any other bows. Oh, I hunt Ft Benning Georgia so I will take whatever comes my way: deer, coyote, pig.

Fellow archers: I currently shoot a R/D made by A&H, but really getting interested in the Hill style LB.  I know their are alot of bowyers out there making this type of bow.  I like the look of the Wesley special, and the fact it is bamboo, but I have heard alot of good things about northern mist.  I want to get back into the wood arrows and D bow system.  I would be shooting about 50 to 55 lbs at 28" and think I would prefer 66" or longer.  I no nothing about string follow.  give me some thoughts.  Thanks

It really comes down to whatever makes you feel good inside. You almost cannot go wrong if you choose from any of the established ASL bowlers. Of course, we all have our favorites.

And....welcome to TAS !
