Default Look maw, no wheels (pics)

Ok i have officially lost it After a 20+ year absence from traditional shooting i got the itch to drag one of my old bows out. The goal is to take a Doe at close range with it. I owe this to my Dad for hanging onto my first two recurves all these years or i probably would haver sold or gave them away. He recently gave them back. Dont get me wrong, I love my bowtech and will primarily be hunting with it this season but i have a void to fill. That void was hunting with a recurve in my youth and never having the oportunity to take a deer with it. First i decided that i was going to camo the very glossy bear grizzly, i made some stencils and got after the flat camo paint. I removed the no glove rubber thingys on the string and re served it as well and added a much needed coat of wax. I made my own string sliencers as well and added some new mole skin to the riser and bought a new leather glove.I still had my vintage Ben Pearson quiver that needed dusting and installed that.I was at Gander Mt. weeks ago and came across a bargain of a half dozen bare shafted 2315 XX75 in Mossy oak break up aluminums for $20.00.I bought some 5" feathers and fletched them up when i got home. All that is left is to decide on what broad head im using. My first couple of days of shooting i couldnt hit the broad side of a barn, but shooting everyday it has finally came back to me. I would like to thank everyone who has answered my questions and i have had many. Schultzy, GMMAT, Rybo, and bowhuntingfool. thanks for getting me back on track, its been awhile

Vintage Ben pearson quiver

The new aluminums

The best group i can muster at 15 yards

Nice Dan, I'm excited for you, I know the feeling of stepping back in the woods for some unfinished business.
Good luck!

Awesome Danno!

But one thing bothers me...




I think we need to have a talk about the electric baby-blue slippers. [&o] []

Even the dog is wondering WTF you were thinking.

Become the arrow grasshopper . Not bad shooting for just starting over.
I like the Snuffer for a broadhead, but then I actually like taking the time to sharpen them. What ever you choose, good luck with it this season.

That's a GREAT 15yd group.....given you're just getting back into it.

Looking forward to following your progress, Dink.

I'd also like to hear what the trad guys think about your hand position (draw hand). If it were ME....I'd want that sight line a little higher. That would put me anchoring a little higher.

Like I said, though.....I'd like to hear what the trad. guys think.

Yep, can't go wrong with a Snuffer Dan if your wondering how these heads are. They've been on my arrows for 15 years now.

Dan, I love the camo of the bow, you did awesome man!!! As for the quiver, that sucker is old!!! I haven't seen one of them in years.

Anytime you need a hand just give me a ring, I'm all ears buddy!
