Default Your 2017 Trad Goals

Curious what my fellow trad bow hunters have as goals for this year. I know not everybody sets goals... maybe call them expectations if that works out better for ya

Personally, reflecting on last year, I can think of a couple of things I'd like to accomplish this year.

1) I'd like to get a hog with my Widow. I've killed a hog with a trad bow, but it was with my Samick. I've killed all my other "list" animals with my Widow, so I'd like to finally get a hog down with it. I came close this past WT season.

2) I'd like to get back into better physical shape so that hunting an Elk or an Aoudad can be a better reality.

3) I'd like to be able to kill 2 deer in WT season.

Other than that, I'll just roll with whatever opportunities may or may not be available to go hunting. I traded the annual trip to South Texas for Javis/Rabbits for the Trad Hog Hunt. Trying to stack my odds on getting a hog with the Widow and just generally try something different (I will miss very much chasing all them rabbits though...)

1) I'd like to get some animals in the bed of my truck or basket of my cart with a traditional bow or two.

2) I'd like to extend my confident shooting range to double what it is now. Currently that's 15 yards.

3) I'd like to increase my draw weight capability to 50lbs at my draw length.

4) I'd like to purchase a 50lbs at my draw length BW PSR and shoot it well.

5) Last but not least I would like to link up with some local traditional shooters, get back into a local club and learn how bad I am at this new obsession.

1. Take a Black Bear in Maine.

2. Have another great TBH Trad Hog Hunt with my Texas friends.

Other than that I'll just roll with whatever opportunities arise.

I really want for my wife and I to get back to South Texas to chase Javis, but I don't see that happening in 2017.

I am going to shoot my recurve more. I've only shot my longbow for the last year, since that is what i was taking to the woods. It's time to break the recurve out at the TBH Trad Hog Hunt!! Fitting, since thats where I bought it from Chris Hackworth.

To take a pig in the next few months with my bow. Then to get a WT in the fall. Hoping to go on a mule deer hunt in NM in Jan next year. Need to increase my range.

I really want to kill a deer with my recurve. I'm gonna try my best to not get tunnel vision on trying to kill a good buck, and just try to kill a legal deer with my recurve. I think not running trail cams will help with this. I also want to shoot a little further, so I'll practice a lot more at 20-25 over the summer. I'll still try to keep my shots from 12-15, but I'd like to feel comfortable at 20. And when my new bow gets here I want to spend a little more time tuning and get it as close to perfect as I can.

I'm also going to space out my vacation. I normally take 3 weeks off to hunt, and this year I took it all in October. Things started slow, and when rifle season opened I just grabbed a gun and zipped through my tags on my days off. Next year I plan to take a week in October, a week in November, and a week in December.

Stretch my range. I am very comfortable at 15 yards, mostly because 80% of my practice is at that distance or closer. There are days when I can stack them at 20 yards, but that comes and goes. I need to start shooting more arrows from 20+ so I know what that distance feels like and it becomes automatic.

1) I want to increase my comfortable range out to 25 yards.

2) I want to take a deer and a hog with my current bow.

3) I want to own a 1968 Super Kodiak in 65lbs and be able to shoot well with it (this one is more of a dream than a goal).

4) I want to meet some more of you in person and learn all I can about this crazy addiction.

5) (this one is REALLY a dream) I've located a 1000 acre tract 20 minutes from the house that's for sale and has been for the last 15 years. I want to own it and host hunts for the trad folks here.

If it's been for sale for 15 years, you should hit them up to see if they'd lease the hunting rights until it sells. Chances are if it hasn't sold by now it may be a while.

Default Your 2017 Trad Goals

First and foremost, I'd like to be a better father/husband. There's always room for improvement there. Just ask my wife, .

Archery-wise,

- I'd love to shoot a few pigs, an Axis, and/or a Turkey before deer season.

- I'd like to put more time in shooting each week, focusing on quilts vs quantity.

- Lastly, I'd really like to try my hand at building a few "Hill Style" longbows. I dream about being able to make some nice bows to give to all my friends, getting them as fired up about this whole Trad thing as I have been over the past 6-8 months.

We may have a spot on my lease (I'll know more after January 31st when the first payment comes due). A father / son couple might not renew.

Its NOT a trophy whitetail lease (130" is a good deer on out place). But, we have Nice axis bucks on the place. Since its year -round, hunting season never ends for us. You can go anytime and shoot axis doe, bucks, sika bucks or doe, and hogs. The whitetail season is just gravy to us.

Great lease manager and very nice landowner.

My answer to the 2017 goals:
1) Kill a nice Axis buck this year with a trad bow
2) Hunt hogs via spot and stalk with my trad bow
3)Work perfecting my release at home in the backyard.
4) get even better at shooting of course!

1. shoot a mature whitetail buck at our place.
2. shoot my bow better and perform better than last year at 3D Shoots (Hill Country Shootout and Chester Specifically)
3. Improve the habitat at our place in the hill country so that more shot opportunities at animals I want to shoot happen. (I freaking hate pigs!)
4. Scout more and learn more

A very handy skill. I would suggest basic electric and plumbing skills as well. I was blessed to learn these in my career with the city and they are indispensable for the lease or ranch.

Haha! Well, I truly hope you do beat me to it my friend! I don't know if I'll have a chance to chase them or not on my trip next year, but hope I do get another chance.


My goals for this year:

1) Get back to shooting my bow more often!
2) Build up my shooting muscles and work my way into 65lb, then 75lb limbs and be able to shoot and handle them comfortably
3) Get rid of the target panic monkey that keeps jumping on an off my back!!
4) Put a check next to one of my bucket list hunts this fall (mountain lion)
5) Enjoy my outings in the woods more and not put as much pressure on myself.

6) Introduce new folks to the trad bowhunting world!!

This is awesome! I see a lot of common goals and some very unique ones too!

1) I too would like to be more constant with my current bow at 15 yards and work out to 25yards.
2) work my way up from a 54# bow to the 60# bow I have collecting dust. (This should also lead to easier shots with the 54# bow as a biproduct)
3) meet some of you here in the Conroe area to shoot and not leave town so much on the weekends.

Mine is to learn how to shoot again. Somehow, amongst a flurry of new bows, a longbow, and too many bows to shoot, I have lost my ability to pick up a bow and be anywhere close to accurate for the first thirty shots. My eyes and brain are just not connecting for awhile, then it is like a connection is made and I can put the arrows where I want to put them. It is back to the basics for me, then maybe I'll think about killing something to eat.
