One of our own, Bill McCrary, aka casekiska, got in touch with me a few weeks ago to talk about finding a permanent home for a historic bow he has in his possession.
Somewhere along the way, Bill offered to send me his book, The History of Wisconsin Bowhunting". Of course, I said, "yes" and a couple days later it arrived.
I didn't know if this chronicle of Wisconsin bowhunter history would capture me because my focus is almost entirely on the archery history of San Diego. However, I must say, not only did Bill succeed in making it genuinely interesting, I discovered a huge amount of strategies for use in furthering the course of an archery club or even starting one.
If for no other reason, it is worth the read to see just how much effort was put into the sport, by a few dedicated folks, we pretty much take for granted these days.
I have a few chapters yet to finish, but I couldn't wait to give accolaids for the writing of this book.
I highly recommend! I someday aspire to achieve, for San Diego, a fraction of what Bill has put into this book for Wisconsin.
