I hunt everything with my bow. I love chasing Squirrels with my Longbow! Too much fun! Get yourself a good blunt head, Hex, Ace works well! I hit one with a Judo the other day, smacked him a good one, he ran off with my arrow in him and went up a tree and my arrow fell out! I couldn't believe it! I'll ONLY you a blunt type head from now on!

Use to hunt squirrel all the time when I was a kid. We use to make blunts out of old 38 casings. It is a lot of fun.

A stringer is always prefered. I tend to use the push pull methode, but am trying to get out of the habit. Been doing it that way for over 20 years. I made me my first stringer last year and have been trying to make a point to use it. Its just safer for you and the bow.

what does your stringer look like for the longbow? I cheated on my recurve and used a piece of 1/2 inch webbing and just tied clove hitches on inside of grooves worked great but not sure it's going to work on longbow that way

They will pretty much work for any bow. I just braded me some dacron 50 and made me some buffalo leather cups and tied the braided string to the cups. Works like a charm.

I've shot many squirrels with my recurve, It's pretty exciting stuff!! It has gotten a tad spendy at times though, a few of my old 2216's are still up In a tree I'm thinking.
