Mahalo nui loa for putting all the great information on this site.  I'm a new member, and found this site yesterday, and was totally excited about the Hawaiian link!!!  In the long draw out process of moving back to Waimanalo from California.  Also just recently go into traditional archery (recure bow) been shooting compound in the past.  So have a lot to learn!
So Ryan, sounded like you just put this site together recently.  Thanks for the hard work, and very beneficial for all of us.
Noticed you have a DAS recurve in one pic, how you like 'em?
Will be in Oahu later this year, would like to get more info overall re: traditional bow hunting in Oahu..... mostly pigs.     :cool:    Easy Ryan.  Aloha.     :shaka:

Thank you for checking it out!

Feel free to call anytime.  808 294 4840  

I'm also at Everything Archery Hawaii a few days during the week.  You may stop by to talk story there too.  It's one of the local pro shops.

I don't have the DAS anymore, but that bow was a shooter.  If you like to "tinker" with your gear, that's one to get. The adjustability on that thing is amazing...

Aloha!
Ryan

When I was in Oahu for the annual Uke festival in Kapiolani Park during this summer, I was thinking about dropping by at Everything Archery...but was running around too much....too little time, and too much to do.  Was doing a lot of OC-1 and kayaking last trip.

Thanks for the invite to call and drop by to talk story.  Definitley would like that, and will do that my next trip back to Waimanalo.  Hopefully Nov or Dec.  Will let you know.

So do you guys carry different kinds of take down recurves at Everything Archery.  Which is your favorite now?

Aloha,  Roger

We primarily sell compounds and beginner recurves at Everything Archery.

My wife and I are currently shooting Stalker Stickbows by South Cox.   www.stalkerstickbows.com

I've been shooting them for the past few years now and have been really happy with them.

Thanks for including the Stalker Stickbows link.  Finally had a chance this weekend to check it out, and thanks for that very informative videos re: shooting, and setting up recurve bows in the site.  A lot of good info in those video.  Mahalo.

I will be in Hawaii for my nephew's high school graduation in June.  I will be staying near Pearl Harbor, as my brother-in-law is an Admiral there.  Any pig/goat hunts around at that time?

Makua will be open for goats and pigs.
Pali will be open for pigs.
There will be a few other open areas, but  Makua or the Pali  will be your best  bets.
