Default First Issue

I just recieved my first issue of Traditional Bowhunter Magazine on Tuesday. I sat down, and read EVERY article, from cover to cover.
What a great magazine. Lots of info, and lots of advertisers that were just what I am looking for. I seen a few others on the board post about the magazine, and thought I would give it a try. My hat is off to those of you who mentioned the magazine in your posts.
I think for any "newbie" to the traditional world, like myself, the magazine would be very helpful.

Chad, I am looking at you being more EVIL the more I get into this thing. My wife wants to kick your donkey for letting me shoot that bow, and re-sparking an old flame. <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Great to hear the mag is good. Just ordered my subscription a couple of weeks ago. Hope I get it soon. Us newbies need all the help we can get. Kip did it have any advice on fighting the evil Chad disease or should I say the Chek mate addiction. My wife says I'd better get treatment soon or I'll be moving to MS.

Evil? Moi'? <img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle>

You can learn a lot from magazines, but keep in mind that you can't always believe everything you read.

Not trying to burst anyone's bubble, but I dropped my subscription a couple or three years ago. The reason was that there was an article about a fellow, and it gave a very strong impression that this fellow made a certain bow. As best as I can remember, the fellow was never actually referred to as the bowyer, but there was a picture of him in his shop applying the finish to some bows (which is all he does to them as far as the actual finished product), and there was nothing said to make the reader believe that he didn't actually make them. Well, I am VERY familiar with this certain bow, and I KNOW who makes them. That really turned me off--I just completely lost faith in it.

I am in no way slamming the fellow that was interviewed--I have heard that he is a great guy, an exceptional shot, and a very good hunter. I was actually shocked that he agreed to let the article be printed--maybe he didn't see the final edit before it was published? Maybe nobody at the office, other than the writer, knew any better--but, if not, they should be more careful of what they print. Misleading information, especially by entities that are supposed to be icons, is a really big peeve with me.

I also know of an article since then that was published by a writer who, in my opinion, in no way should be representing our sport (or any hunting sport as far as that goes) in any way, shape, or form. Again, a big turn off for me, and another case of somebody not doing their homework.

Now, I know I have probably opened a can of worms here. Sorry if I have offeneded anyone. I am NOT trying to talk anyone into dropping their subscription. Just advising that you do a little research on things that have any meaning to you, because like I said at the beginning of this post....you just can't believe everything you read. Even if the writer and/or publisher is being honest, they might not have done their homework.

Chad

P.S. CT, you are more than welcome here--heck, you can even bring Kip with you. Kip, the main thing you gotta' learn if you move here is that NOBODY here says &quot;eh?&quot; <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Long Bows Rule!

Chad,

Couldn't agree more. A friend of mine is an outdoor writer in FL. I was in several of his fishing articles and books. Didn't realize most of what you read or see is setup. Butttt, still don't have any other source of info, ads, etc. other then this forum. It's nice to have something to look at. Everything needs to be taken with a grain of salt, all that is except that Crusaders are awesome. There goes that evil spell again<img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

Chad,

It is amazing how the letters come Cascading from your keyboard, you have a wonderful way with words. Now if we could just get the longhaired bowyer to get a haircut! <img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_cool.gif border=0 align=middle>

CT I agree with you that everything you read must be taken with a grain of salt,but TBM is a great mag just for the advertisements even if nothing else.I also agree that Chad has a way of infecting people with the CHECKMATE VIRUS Great bows ain't they.
P.S. Chad keep it up!!!!!!!!

That's it the Chekmate virus. I wonder if there is a cure. So far the only thing that works for me is buying more bows. I bought another one yestersday<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> Have to hide it from my wife. I picked up 3 new bows in the past month<img src=icon_smile_tongue.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=icon_smile_evil.gif border=0 align=middle> I feel better this morning but don't know how long this will last. Already thinking of buying a new string.

Found a used Crusader 68&quot; Shedua riser and black locust limbs. My other 2 are 64&quot;. It was the right price so I picked it up. Its really nice looking. Now I have to order a string from Chad. Don't like the one that came with it.
