I’ve done it both ways. When they used to come to rattling I’ve had to stop them. Sometimes they would come on a run. I just do a deep burp w my voice. I set up for close shots. I do prefer walking tho.

There are now multiple podcasts that cater to the traditional crowd and a few high profile people who have switched to traditional equipment. There is a lot more buzz out there now about hunting with traditional equipment. I think it is natural for them to search for information about how to get started with traditional gear and seek like minded people. It's growing at a fast rate.

I agree with Matt.  Tradgang offers a ton of information and comradery..  I also think there is a big uptick in interest in traditional equipment.  Lots of great podcasts from the stick bow chronicles, the PUSH etc are really getting a lot of traction on social media.  Great times!

I’m going to have to almost agree with McDave in this particular case. It seems that the right edge of the tip of my arrow is barely touching the left side of the string. However after shooting all evening. I’ve come to the conclusion [I’m sure this will change when I start overthinking it again] that the 145 and 175 grain tips seem to shoot the best. I’m probably going to go with the 145 putting me at 10.5 - 10.8 gpp. I appreciate all of the opinions I can get! If anyone has similar specs with the same bow I would like to hear what you’re set up is

Before you build out the side plate, test your bow to be sure it really is cut past center. I tested three of my bows, built by different well known bowyers, all of which were supposed to be cut past center, only to find out that none of them were cut much past center, maybe 1/32” or 1/16” at most.  The thickness of the strike plate pushed the arrow shaft out to where the inside edge of the arrow shaft was at center at the strike plate, at best.  At the arrow tip, it was well outside of center.  Of course YMMV (and I hope it does!).  This doesn’t mean that I couldn’t tune it; just had to tune it differently than I would if it were truly cut past center.

I think the site promotes itself. I know at least for me, I have gained a ton of knowledge and made some good friends through Trad Gang. It seems that Traditional Bowhunting is growing, and hunters are seeking as much information as possible.

I've only tried stopping them one time. Then I waited till the buck started to walk again before I shot. I don't want them to know I'm there. I keep my shots under 20yrds preferably 15yrds.
PowWow / Re: CA Needs Hunter Ed Instructors

Why don’t the kids needing instruction have fathers willing to help? May be an incentive for them. Another thing we do is take new hunter ed graduates and ask them to help if they seem intelligent.
We make sure they’re w other instructors and we train them the way we need.

Women are often overlooked. Bet if you asked some they’d help too. A friend of mine moved to Oklahoma. She was a great instructor. She taught hunter ed and archery classes w me. She’s had enough resistance being a female out there she gave both up. Shame.  Nothing she couldn’t teach. Ask women and be welcoming to them.
Many companies offer hunter ed instructor discounts. There’s more incentive for ya.
