i hunted for many years with recurves, but have switched to using longbows only in the last few years. i have several customs (bob lee, crow creek, and a few others), but my favorite is a bear montana which i spray painted black/grey camo. i use 23/64th wood arrows (i buy the shafts and stain, seal, fletch, etc. myself) with longbows and either zwickey or magnus 125gr 2 blade broadheads. also use 150gr grizzlys. you might check out trad gang.com and stickbow.com. good hunting.

I've hunted with traditional equipment for the past 25 years. Started with an older Bear Kodiak Hunter, progressed to a Martin Mamba, and have settled on Blacktail Bows made by Norm Johnson out of Reedsport, Oregon; awesome bows. I shoot hand made laminated birch arrows, and am currently using a, what used to be, Wensel Woodsman Broadhead. They're now being offered by Three Rivers Archery as the Woodsman. My Blacktails and some arrows that I've made. Arrow making is an addiction for me; I make them for all my friends.

Loc: A sandy knoll,
The little lady and I both hunt the fun way.
Our Archerhunter Jr has been shooting his longbow since just a few days after his second B-day, including putting the arrow on all by himself. Nearing 5 YO he only has 3 summer's practice under his belt.... but that's well over half his life smile

We have quite a few bows from quite a few bowyers. Here's what I bought the wife a couple years back from R.E.R.

Zebra wood and purple heart.

ps
We use carbon arrows that we fletch ourselves and Bear Super Razorheads with the little inserts to make 'm 4 blade. Very effective broad heads and the shafts are easy to straiten wink

I have a Hoyt Excel Riser with TT limbs 45# hunting and SF limbs 32# for indoor target work. I also have a Howatt Diablo 47# that I will likly hunt with next fall. I shoot Beman ICS Bowhunter Carbon Arrows w/ Old Bear Razorheads. I love to stump shoot and am pretty hard on arrows, so these work great. Tough, Straight and cheap - good combination in my book!

Until earlier this year I was a DAS Master Hunter user with Outback Supreme broadheads mounted on carbon arrows. I used a DAS SRF sight. Unfortunately, I have been diagnosed with MCTD, a particularly virulent incurable autoimmune disease. I can no longer draw ANY bow. So my great nephews have DAS bow packages, and I have two DAS Master Hunters remaining that I must sell.

Outback Supreme broadheads - the ultraheavy all steel version - are hands down the best value among the super penetrating broadheads, as well as being one of the three best in quality control. The problem is getting them from their part-time manufacturer in Australia.

I have hunted traditional for the last 25 years. Mostly recurves: Allegheny Mountain Takedown, Allegheny Mountain Bush Bow, Robertson Stykbow one piece Peregrine, and Bear Grizzly have been the primary bows.
Douglas fir shafts with Wensel Woodsman broadheads, Zwickey Delta's, Bear Razors three fletched with 5 1/2" banana fletch. Carbon Express Terminator shafts with Three Rivers 5 grain/inch insert tubes, and Muzzy 220 grain Phantoms, four fletched with 5 inch parabolic feathers.
Hand made my quiver.
