Hunter; this is bow. Bow; this is hunter.
What is Bowhunting?
Rich with tradition, bowhunting has been around since the ancient hunter/gatherer days. Interestingly, even way back then there were folks who preferred dropping deer with arrows to rummaging for berries in their loincloth.
Modern bows have developed beyond the traditional ‘stick and string’ concept used in the past and many bowhunters have wholeheartedly embraced the modern technology available to them. However, despite the modern improvements, traditional bowhunting lives on and advanced bowhunters challenge themselves by switching out their high-tech gear for an old-school bow.
