One of my other passions is to shoot my longbows and recurves. Traditional archery is how I decompress. walking through the woods hunting or just stump shooting, is one of my greatest pleasures. Some of the articles that appear here were previously published in Stick and String magazine. Other posts are specifically for my blog followers. There is something mystical about the flight of a well shot arrow as it leaves the wooden bow and arcs away toward the target. It is hypnotic.
