‘By and large,’ says Owen Jeffrey, owner of Jeffrey Archery on South Carolina, traditional bow hunting are for bow hunters who are quite more sophisticated in their pursuit of the game animal trying to emulate the ways of early bow hunters. There is an ego involved. Though they accept the challenge of limited effective range and relatively long bow, they look down at people who use new or improved equipment.

Back in the late 1920s, Earl Hoyt built his first bow back by following the instructions described in his Boy Scout handbook. He used hickory wood on his first bow, from then on, he was hooked for life. Hoyt describes traditional bow hunting as a sense of returning to and hunting with a more primitive weapon. He says that, he enjoys the nostalgia and mystique surrounding a bow hunt with traditional archery equipment as there is a sense of going back to the simple ingredients of a bow and arrow, hunter and game.

Traditionalists like Hoyt prefer recurve or longbows, shoot instinctively rather than with sights, and shoot fingers rather than mechanical release aids; they do not take advantage of the technological advances and improvements in bows and bow hunting accessories. Hoyt’s company, Sky Archery, manufactures a traditional bow that achieves an arrow speed of 204 feet per second at Archery Manufacturer’s and Merchant’s Organization standards. An arrow speed of 204 fps is fast enough to compete with many compound bows on the market today. High-tech compound bows at AMO standards normally archive an arrow speed of 210 through 240 fps.

The secret to finding happiness in traditional bow hunting according to experts is first seeking the right and realistic goals, whether you want to bow hunt, hit a target, or just stump shoot. Don’t let ego ruin your aspirations. Take a good perspective and have fun in the process.
