Mauritania-Senegal border
Hello everyone,

I'm Paolo from Italy, working and living in Mauritania (West Africa), long bow man since 18 years, bow hunter since 10. I use only traditional American semi-longbow with wood arrow, I have three semi-longbow: a Danilo Milesi "Howard" 63#@28", a Howard Hill "Big 5" 70#@28" and a Howard Hill "Tembo" 80#@28". Here in the south we have a fair amount of games, albeit mostly ungulates (Oryx, Topi, Dama, Addax) few warthogs and some feline like leopards, cheetas, caracals.
I hope to share my experiences with other fellows.

Paolo

Not being a Traditional guy myself I have been around some of my ex clients "now great friend" who are. These guys are so disciplined in the game.

Welcome to the best forum Paolo.

I salute you for your preference of traditional archery.

If God had meant fur us to shoot our food with compound bows, he would have made the trees with aluminum, plastic, cables and pulleys.
