Episode 47 – Why I Shoot Traditional Archery Tackle


What’s up Peeps? Old School episode today. You just have me.

Today’s Episode is all about the reasons I have chosen to transition to traditional archery tackle. There are plenty of reasons to try and/or move to traditional archery. In this weeks podcast, I discuss several reasons for wanting to pursue the change.

Some of the reasons I discuss are:

  • Yardage Judgement
  • Fast Target Acquisition
  • Flexibility of shooting angles
  • Practice
  • EDC Gear
  • Cost
  • DIY Aspect

We finish off with giving my timeline of my traditional archery journey to-date starting with my first bows I made myself through today.

We also have a couple of shout-outs including a nice NY buck taken by the guys at Vantage Point Outdoors and a listener episode suggestion.



Remember to to give us a review on iTunes and a “thumbs up” on Stitcher! I truly do appreciate it.

Episode 14 – Choosing a Traditional Bow


In today’s episode I discuss what you should be thinking about when it comes to purchasing a traditional bow.

Whether you are in the market for a Longbow, Recurve or any other style, I lay out some points to think about throughout the process.

I had a few weird recording glitches with this episode. You will hear an occasional stutter or skipping sound. It kinda sounds like I edited and cut audio from the episode. That isn’t the case. Hopefully, I can figure that out for future episodes.
