    Jnoel,
    Been shooting and hunting with longbow since 89,had a great uncle show me some of his shooting and gave me a few tips and I was Hooked ! I follow thru with the traditioal bowhunter mag and primitive archer mag. Both of these mags send you in the right direction. I did try making my bow(hahaa),lots of good people out there to do that and I found out that I donot have the skills for it .But I wish you the best with yours,some have it some don't ,I will never have it Hahahaa!
    No long range hunting with mine as I limit my shots to 25 yds or less if I can,don't know how long I will be able to keep hunting with one as I have had shoulder trouble at times! Good luck with yours! And yes it takes a lot of shooting time as is any thing worth doing its what you put into it ,but its better than watch the tard box!

    Ok so far i figured out that this has something to do with bow hunting and/or bow shooting, so what is primitive or instinctual?

    Been hunting with a recurve for 20+ years. My traditional bowhunting buddies look at me funny when I tell a long range rifle hunting story and my rifle hunting buddies look at me funny when I talk about hunting with the recurve and needing to get to under 25 yards.

    If they open a trebuchet season, I'm in for that too!

    Primitive usually refers to bows with no modern material (fiberglass, aluminum, etc) maybe all wood (one single piece is a selfbow) or horn and wood or bamboo, hide. sinew.

    Instinctive is a generic term for shooting with no sights.

    Don, thanks for the response, now I understand a little better the jargon.
