I for one sure would like to see some of your game kills taken with your trad bows. Anything from chipmunks to elephants. Looking at them will only encourage me and others here for the upcoming season so please post 'em up.

I'll start this off one of mine, my first ever deer with a recurve, back when my belly was flat.:p Small 5 pointer, Ben Pearson 50# Hunter recurve, aluminum arrow with Bear Razorhead, Jasper County, Georgia, 1976, and yes, I smoked back then.

You look mighty familiar in that pic Al. You ever hunt South Georgia back then?

That's a mighty fine bag right there Apex!

Was that pig in your avatar pic a trad kill? If so, post it up in a larger pic. I love that arrow sticking out of him.:)

No Nic, didn't get too far south in those days. Must have been a movie star down that way you saw once.:bounce:

So far, only fish . Hope to change that real soon!
(I did take a big doe with a traditional muzzleloading pistol that I am proud of).
 
Forgot to mention, the hog is my first trad kill with the longbow that John Cooper just sold. A CE heritage 150 with Wensel Woodsman. Quartering away pretty hard, and the arrow stopped on the offside shoulder. The day my last compound went on the auction block, no less! I have hunted with both for a few years, but it took a total committment to finally close the deal! I'm traditional only for life now.

Great Pic AL!!!:banana:
 
I`ll post some of the most recent. I just figured out how to post`em a while back I will say I use the throw away cameras from walmart and can only post the ones I have from this year. the rest are just regular pics. So far this year I killed 6 pigs at Horse Creek and a spring gobbler with different stick bows and broadheads.maybe this will work . God willing I`ll have some more after next week.RC










 
This was my first trad deer. I can still see it in my mind. The arc of the arrow in flight, the buck quartering away at a fairly steep angle. At a distance of 17 yards, the arrow intercepts the deer at the last rib and the fletching disappears as the arrow exits just in front of the off side leg. Beautiful........


And can you tell it was a long drag on a hot night?
