Slinging arrows from a stick is fun!!! How you like that book so far? Just realized I have no archery books and need to fix that problem soon.

From what I’ve heard and read so far, it’s perfect. It’s taking me to a different mindset and giving me a great starting base to begin shooting sticks with realistic outcomes. My goal is to shoot, shoot, cry, scream, shoot, shoot and see how I am in 6 months.

That's a great book. Buff recommended it to me when I first started shooting trad. Lots of great info. There is a lot of crying and screaming involved lol. But 6 months from now when you get frustrated on a bad day, remember how bad you shot the first day you had a stick bow!! The learning curve is long but the payoff is huge.

Just for the record I haven't cried.

Cussed and complained maybe.

But no crying.

That is a good book. Howard Hill's "Hunting The Hard Way" is good too. It is where I learned how he kept the arrow in his perif when shooting.

Trad is a lot of fun. I wish had some pics of my first groups. I was happy just to hit my paper target let alone make a good shot.
