“The Traditional Journey Lives On,” available from the Pope and Young Club
“The Traditional Journey Lives On,” the third in a series of books chronicling the foundations and spirit of hunting with the bow and arrow. The book is an easy-reading collection of stories, about how hunting with the bow and arrow can and does, positively impact our lives.
This book’s editor, Jim Willems, notes, “this is a book for every bowhunter. A book designed to inspire and inform readers of bowhunting's enduring legacy. The book is a celebration of 'rolling up our sleeves and getting busy’ at bowhunting.”
Contemporary authors, Donnie Vincent, Aron Snyder, Nick White, South Cox, John Gardner, Jim Anderson, Nathan Andersohn, Todd Brickel, and Jim Willems, dive into the feelings and emotions we experience with participation in the varied activities known as bowhunting.
The journey of a bowhunter isn't necessarily about recurves, longbows, or compounds. It is, whether on purpose or by accident, about finding the joy and value in the heritage and traditions that make up this thing we call BOWHUNTING. It’s about relishing the challenges of the sport. It's about experiencing the thrill of the chase, up close and personal. It's about the hours of practice earning the perfect shot. It's about honing your skills and relying on them. It's about dreaming and planning for the next hunt. It's about preserving, intact, bowhunting for future generations to share and value.
This book also documents the continued success and effectiveness of the traditional bow and arrow—ample evidence of the effectiveness of the skilled archer using traditional equipment. Listed are all traditional-equipment-taken animals in the P&Y Records Program, in all species categories, entered into the Records through January 1, 2020.
