35bore I also toy with archery taditional is fun. Traditional eqipment allows you to just shoot and not be a catapult mechanic.

It's awesome to hear you are getting comfortable with your bow and new arrows. Don't get frustrated. Some days with a trad bow are great and you hit where you are looking. Others you can't hit a barn. Keep at it and keep it fun. Start shooting from 10-14 yards and then build confidence. You won't be shooting over 30 with a trad bow much and 20-24 is my self imposed limit. Have fun!Tom

Again thanks for the input, the carbons worked great. Aside from my original post I think I will hang onto the recurve and the long bow for a while. To late I started at 20 yrds and I am getting comfortable at that range, I will post this years Whitetail (hopefully) with one or the other....

That's great, truly enjoy hunting with the trad bow. It definitely takes more commitment than a compound. Be sure to tune your arrows to the bow. Play with some heavy broadheads. I was shooting 300 grains on a 55/75 goldtip and 200 grain from a 35/55 . I had great penetration from that combo from a 55 lbs bow. good luck

I am taking the Bear Montana out tomorrow morning, heads are sharpened and I feel more comfortable with the long bow than the recurve (would have thought just the opposite). Anyway, been practicing a lot a 20 yards and now even my "off" shots are still within the 6inches of center, so I bought my tags today (wasn't going to buy archery tags until I was ready/comfortable), (so now I'm ready) and headed out in the morn. I wish all of guys a great season.
