I became interested in archery in 1959, and was in and out several times through the years. Since the late 80's I have been continually and heavily involved, all of it with trad equipment. Things began with an Indian Archery fiberglass bow at a military archery club in Mississippi. In the 90's I discovered the longbow and never looked back. My first deer ever was a 10 point buck taken with a Ben Pearson Gamester bow (I still have it). 2020 is the 27th year that I will hunt only with the bow.
