Hello, I have been registered for awhile but never got around to the introduction.
I am from Myrtle Point Or and have been shooting ASL’s for 35 years or so. It is all I shoot and I have made a few during the years. Hope to cross paths with you guys someday. Gary

After being away from traditional archery for six years, it is so good to return.
My wife and I moved back to Texas after a 20-year stay in Colorado.
During those years, I really got drawn into shooting Hill style bows, HHA Big Five or Osage Royale by Chuck Jones.
I was crafting my own arrows and making quivers for family and friends.
Fall would find me on the Western Slopes chasing elks or in Wyoming after pronghorns.
Several injuries slowed me down over the years, but I still loved to see my arrows fly.
Fast-forward a few years and we are back in Texas, in the sprawling San Antonio suburbs.
Church friends asked me to do a short presentation on longbows at our last men's breakfast.
Since I gave my #65 Hill to my oldest son before living Colorado, I ended-up borrowing my youngest's #55 Northern Mist, as well as his arrows and quiver I made for him many years ago. I am not a "collector" (nothing wrong with it) and that Hill was my only bow.
Slinging a few arrows in an open field taught me two things: I am still addicted, but my muscles need to build back up!
I was a member of TG and LW for years, but grew tired of the bickering and "secret handshake" crowd.
I hope to be able to make meaningful contributions to your discussions, as well as to keep on learning.
One of the few things I miss about Colorado is having a decent outdoor range nearby.
First, I will have to get my hands on a bow and get some arrows crafted for it, then I hope to have the opportunity to harass a few pigs one of these Falls.
Thank you for this forum.
God bless,
Chris

Thank you. We live in between San Antonio and New Braunfels.
I have had little luck finding an outdoor range or other trad shooters close by.
Still so glad we are back in Texas though.
I have a son who works at Llano State Park, is that close to your ranch? Beautiful area.

Yes sir, he would only be about 30-40 minutes south of us

If interested, check out the Texas Bowhunter.com site, and they have a traditional page. There are lots of trad guys in your area, and odds are they are on there

I've been registered here since 2015 and for some strange reason just decided to make my first posts today. I really enjoy reading the posts and the wealth of knowledge here. My real name is Ron Goodrum and I live in Pleasant View TN. I've been bow hunting and shooting traditional since the early 70's

Hello, I wanted to say a few lines, starting with this is a nice welcoming site, the fact that there is a special place for Hill style is a extra blessing. It was fall 1993 my Jennings compound bow was sick, and I facing buying another on. Back then the trend was to get a new compound every season? So I forget the fine details, but I got a Martin ml10 ? Longbow, and wood arrows, a new direction was born. I started reading, pre internet days, traditional bow hunter magazine was a tremendous resource. I hunted first season with a lot of shooting but clean missing was the order of the day. I practiced and tried to get some form, I read the Asbell books, and got several books through Traditional bow magazine. Second season had a kill or two. I got in touch with John Shultz, and ordered a Grandpa longbow, I really didn’t know what I had, but it was my new bow, seasons and better seasons came, I read the bowyers of America book? .. I was intrigued by the name Frank San Marco, so I contacted him and got on a waiting list, for one of his bows. Life was happening, so I got the FSM, shot it but used the Grandpa, fast forward around 2005/06 had another Frank Marco bow made. Then small farm happened, horse hay, business. Etc. A life’s full of chapters events happened. The whole traditional archery bows gear arrows, arrow making stuff., sold. So, I sold the crossbow, and I am back, shooting a 7 Lakes non dished string follow, and I love it. Thanks: Ravenwolf

Welcome Horsehide. I'm just down the road from you, over in Fair Oaks Ranch/Boerne. I don't post much but do try to get by to catch up every now and again. Regarding an outdoor range, I believe they have one at Camp Bullis that is open to the public. I've yet to check it out. Maybe one day we could meet up and sling a few arrows. I have several bows you'd be welcome to use, as long as you're a lefty 😉 

Cheers,
J. Foster

Thanks for the welcome.
I found a place to shoot about 15 minutes from our house. Nothing fancy, but it is safe and quiet.
The drive to Camp Bullis would take a bit from where we live. The Bierce area is beautiful.
Would love to meet at some point and shoot.
Got my hands on a JD Berry Vixen and made enough arrows to practice with and take to the woods in a few weeks.

Just got my password back, does a longbow with a slight reflex or backset count as a Hill style? I have one perfect floor tillered signed by both Glen and Jay St Charles and one Sentmen with about 1''backset, and 6 other with reflex and 5 recurves . I am 67 with arthritis and hi BP and stopped hunting, maybe start selling some heavier ones.

Hill bows can be straight limb, backset or stringfollow.

2 a.m. here in Indiana. My name is Marty Lewis. Good morning to you all. Recent membership. Look forward to contributing in any way i can. Been a traditional shooter for over 50 years., Hill or Hill-style bows being my preference. Presently enjoying an '06 Wesley Special, an '05 Big Five, a 1984 Longriver Custom and a 1978 Bamboo Longbow by Tim Meigs. Hard to choose a favorite among them but, if pressed, id have to give the  nod to the Wesley at 55# for a bow i could shoot all day. Although anything up to 65# is a pleasure to shoot. Looking forward to future feedback and conversations.....cheers
