Traditional Archery

Hunting and hunters are a broad church. All around the world, in just about any terrain and weather you could find a hunter pursuing his or her passion. Yet in this age of instant gratification hunters continue to challenge their limits. Some do it by the gear they use, the topography they hunt or the tool they carry. Why is there such a diversity amongst Hunters and what is so similar about all of us?

Bows have been around for thousands of years. And for most of that history Archers have battled, competed and hunted. In relatively recent times the Compound Bow was developed and are keenly used by many Hunters. A compound bow is extremely accurate and shoot arrows in excess of 300 foot per second.

With the availability of high tech  design, manufacture and materials what is the attraction to Traditional Archery? Probably many things. A connection with the past, simplifying a pursuit, purity and challenge. And then, to up the challenge  become a Trad Hunter.

I talk to Jimmy Beehag about his thoughts and experiences on Trad Archery Hunting, the differences and the similarities to other methods, where we are at as Hunters and how we can improve how we are viewed and understood by non-hunters.

And Listeners thanks for the continued support and spread the word on Hunting Arete.
