So with this bow season starting to wind down how did everyone do with trad gear? I was super blessed and had an awesome season. I was able to take two bucks and two does. Three with a recurve and one with a longbow. The small buck was my first urban hunt deer as well. I still have one regular season tag but the doe from earlier this week will probably wrap up the season.

I too killed my first with a recurve. Pack of does got spooked by something and came running in to 8 yards. Simmons tree shark had a complete pass thru and she ran about 40 and piled up. Stuck with the compound for the rest of they year, as I was working out some kinks. But it's nice to know I can kill one with the recurve if I take it!!

Didn’t kill a deer this year with my bow! Had a few exciting hunts though.

In February a friend and I went on a group hunt in Texas with 6 other guys from Tradgang. All longbows and recurves. 5 days hunting a 2500 acre ranch just outside of Laredo For javelina and wild hogs. I managed to arrow 2 javelina , my friend got one, another old geezer killed 2. 3 other guys all missed opportunities…one guy shot 4 times one day.

A couple of the guys were stalking hogs at night and managed to kill 3. They were hardcore killers, stalking to within 10 yds in the dark in their stocking feet! I bet they are still pulling cactus thorns out of their feet. One of the hog killers got a javi too.

My buddy built me a new takedown longbow right before that trip. It shoots great and I was happy to get it properly broke in! It was a target rich environment with a lot of excitement everyday. We are already on the list to repeat that trip next February!
