Traditional Leagues? (Southwest)
« on: October 31, 2007, 09:01:00 AM »
I wouldn't mind shooting in a league this year if there was one that was either traditional only or atleast traditional aware.

If not a league, I'm looking for a place to shoot this winter.  Any thoughts.  I'd rather be around people shooting recurves and longbows than surrounded by a bunch of compound shooters.

I'm in Prairie du Chien.
Just started traditional this year.
Shot compound years ago.
I would drive up to an hour to shoot if necessary.

TIA

CheeseHead,

Not too much action for traditional guys around here. I shoot in a summer league at the Richland Center Archery Club. Good group of guys - but all wheelie shooters (except me, of course). They did put up traditional stakes this year with the help of Steve Welte - who makes Deathwish longbows and is local.

I shot recurves until I switched to a Deathwish longbow a couple of years ago. I am used to shooting with wheelie guys- but would certainly welcome the traditional company. Most wheelie shooters are very understanding and supportive - especially when you actually kill something!

I would certainly be willing to drive also to find an indoor league for the winter months. Hope we can both find one!!!

I am from Dodgeville Wisconsin.  I have recently gotten back to my traditional roots and am also looking for a place to shoot other than my own yard.  Anyone interested in bunny hunting or squirrel hunting with traditonal gear?  If anyone just wants to get together to shoot I would be very interested.  I have no problem traveling to Prairie or Center. If anyone want toget together just PM me.
