My daughter in Florida has been a compound shooter for years . She recently decided to go traditional because she is tired of paying what it cost's to have her bow re cabled every year and constantly having to keep it in tune. I am sending her one of my Bear takedowns, arrows, arm guard, tab and bow stringer. I decided to give her some written advice on how to take care of it and use it as well. That written advice turned into a 271 page book of my own past in the sport and the sport of archery and the many changes I have seen it go through. My history and those changes include our families life when Florida was much more rural. It all made me realize the changes time has brought to the places, people, and things we grew up with. I think just remembering it all has become as much a learning experience for me as it will be for her.

I found it so interesting to write it all down, going back to the beginning. It really comes home when you do. The set up for her will be a two tone Bear A. riser with #3 limbs for a sixty inch bow pulling 32 pounds or about 30 at her draw length. Arrows are 1716 aluminum cut to 28 inches. She is the head ranger (park manager) at Lake Louisa state park and at 43 yrs old in fantastic shape. She has a great respect for history, especially family history as well as a great love of all things outdoors so I hope this is a chance to experience some of the same journey with the sport as I have had and enjoyed so much over so many years.
