Trad club in NJ??
« on: January 11, 2011, 07:18:00 AM »
Hi, my name is Santi. I'm spanish but I'm gonna spent 2 months in NJ visiting my uncle. I began archery last year and since the very first beginning I shot trad bows. I currently have and shoot a 50# montana. I'll be arriving to your country next friday, so I was looking for archers who live in NJ or a club to fling some arrows.
 
This is me shooting some 3D
 

I found this site  http://www.funnewjersey.com/upload_user/Different_Outdoor_adventures_NJ/ARCHERY_RANGES_NJ.HTM  and found that many are quite far away from where I'll be living. WO-PE-NA archers is near but I read that they only have indoor targets and up to 18m.

Also as my montana can't fit my baggage I'll buy a bow there. Preferably T/D so I can bring it back to Spain, so if you have any pointers on a good economic bow they'll be greatly appreciated. I'm going to be in Elmwood Park, I believe near there is an archery shop called targeteers, is it a good one or there are others specialized in trad gear?


Also I would like to congratulate and thank all the ones (everyone) that make this forum possible. I registered some time ago and have learnt since then lots of things: Ashby reports, Adcock bow tuning, Terry's clock form, uncountable tips from not so known members, etc. There is a huge amount of info here, for me the most important site in the internet about bowhunting and trad archery. Maybe now that I have acquired a little knowledge I'm able to post regularly. Best regards

Hello, Targeteers has a indoor range but mostly deal with compounds.

Hi,

bamboo: but I think that I read somewhere that you should pass a test to hunt in NJ, something about shooting 5 arrows to a 3d deer vitals and hitting at least 3 and a written test, is that right?

cj3a: Watching the photos of their page that's what I supposed, but I don't need them to have high end trad bows. I'm not enough good shooter to tell the difference between a good bow and a not so good one. A samick or something like that is enough for me, or when I get there look for something used like ben pearson or a bear. I remember when I began shooting, in my club there was a nice longbow and I kept "stealing" it to shoot with it, it was a Ben pearson, for me it was quite a good bow. Later I found out that it cost like 50$. I didn't mind, it did the job, if I could find something like that in an auction site, I'll be happy.

BowHuntz: I checked out, nice range you have there, I'll try to attend the 27th cabin fever shoot. I've got a question about the name, what does Swap meet means?

So where do you guys of new jersey shoot? On your own? In a club?

santi
maybe the jersey boys know more--i'm a non resident hunter in new jersey also--
if you have a hunting licence from your country they should take that instead of the NJ course--but i'm not positive--hopefully
might be worth a try
good luck
