Furthermore, most archers who are fixated on modern archery show little interest in learning anything about the archery of old. To such people, “traditional” archery gear means a willow-limb bow and a cotton string. Not long ago I visited a photo lab in Anchorage, Alaska to pick up some color prints of my archery hunting clients.

Morale of the Persian army was at an all-time low. C. revealed a relatively small band of a thousand Scythian horsemen on a grassy hill two miles from the main Persian force. The Scythian horse-bowmen paused for a moment atop the hill and then charged directly down toward the great Persian host.

I started out in the mid-1960’s by making self wood bows of Pacific yew and Osage orange and then graduated to laminated longbows of yew and fiberglass. After that I began building heavy-handled laminated recurved bows of maple and fiberglass and experimented with such things as overdraw systems and even bow sights.
