Default Glass laminate bows and their affects on hunting

Or, those darn backed bows. What happened to the true hunters. The ones who wittle out a selfbow, nap his flint, and hunt.

I guess our sport is dieing due to the fact manufactured bows are being used by all those slob hunters.[:@]

Lol!! Some day Kent I'll I'll be shooting wood arrows, maybe even this year. As for the self bow stuff- who knows If I get that far with It. The flint heads are also a possibility.

Shhhh, dont tell anyone, but I quit using wood arrows a long time ago. Too expensive, a pain in the but to tune, and carbon are so much more durabile.

I just had to post a satire of all the craziness I’m seeing on this , and other boards. Pistol hunters gripe because rifle hunters are not real hunters. Same for some black powder hunters. We have rifle hunters gripping about the bow hunters injuring too many deer. We have compound, and some crossbow hunters gripping because rifle and pistol hunters are lazy slob hunters. We have trad bow hunters arguing that all other forms of hunting is for lazy slobs. I could go on with all aspects of hunting including baiting, fences, scents, decoys, food plots, etc. etc. and all the counter views. Yet we have hunters saying Peta is our enemy?

Kent, your nutty as a fruitcake. I agree on durability.I have stuggled with carbons since day one with trad bows. If I get a good set of cedars that within 10gr of each other, and spined within 3lbs, they seem so much more forgiving than carbons. I keep a set of 2 or 3 cedars varying in spine. And once you find the one that flys well, your set.

Thank you for posting that. I don't post enough for anyone to take what I say seriously, so I usually just keep my mouth shut (or fingers still, depending on how you look at it). A lot of the crap, and I really mean CRAP that I've read in so many of the threads on HNI, (even a few here in the Trad forum) is truly depressing. If I thought that all of you fellas on here felt the way that I've seen some talk, I'd just as soon ship my longbow back to Matt/PA and give it up altogether. I'm glad that the majority of you have a little class.

Hey littlechief you should see how folks behave on another website when someone mentions "high fence"! Same guys that will shoot a exotic game and have to remember to take ear tag out before they take a photo! You have to take so much stuff with a grain of salt and see the irony in some subjects.
