Traditional newbie

Looking for some help, would like to get into traditional archery, Finally saved the money up, but looking into everything I'm a little overwhelmed.  Any archery shops in Wisconsin that could set me up and get me started.  Any advice would be appreciated.  Thanks Jason

Welcome. There are not too many shops that carry any amount of traditional equipment OR have anyone on staff that may be able to assist. We are a small but dedicated bunch. We are,however, all willing to help a newbie!!!! If you already own a recurve or longbow you are well on your way. If not -choose one and go with it. Check with 3 Rivers Archery, Kustom King or The Footed Shaft for purchases. Don't be afraid to ask questions.

Tradgang is a great place for information. Feel free to send a personal e-mail to any of us in Wisconsin. Don't forget to join Wisconsin Traditional Archers!!!!

Traditional archery is a journey that will take you many places and will increase your enjoyment in the outdoors.

Hi Jason, Welcome to the fold. I live in Merrill, a bunch of us traditional shooters get together every Thursday night at Lincoln County Sports Club to shoot. You're certainly welcome. I realize that might be a bit to far to travel every week but if you'd like to meet some evening or weekend day to try some bows get in touch with me. On July 19-20 our annual State Championship Shoot and Rendezvous will be held at Racine Instinctive Bowmen. There'll probably be 200+ shooters and 20 or so traditional vendors present, no better place to try out dozens of different bows. My email is kcgltd@verizon.net. Good to hear from you, Dale A. Klug, WTA

Welcome. As Dale pointed out a shoot would be good to attend. The shoots are also attened by vendors and you can usualy get anything you want there. Free camping. Many of us come for the whole weekend. The closest shoot for you would be the Rib Mountain Bowmen shoot north of Wausau. Aug. 9-10. Join the WTA and don't be afraid to ask for help.

Thanks for the response.  I can't make the state shoot due to work.  I'll see if I can make the rib mountain shoot.  I will be joining the WTA.  For many years I've been wanting to make the switch from compound to traditional.  I've finally saved up the money and decided now is the time for the switch. I'm looking forward to meeting some of you folks over time, and I'm sure I will have a ton more questions.  Thanks Jason
