Traditional Archery

Archery equipment made by craftsmen and women of Oregon!

Saturday, Jan 28 I had a chance to participate in the Traditional Archers of Oregon's annual conference held at the Eagle Crest resort in Redmond, Oregon.

Though not a practicing archer now, I was really impressed with the quality of the bows offered for sale.

Bows ranged from a single piece of Yew to long and recurve bows with laminated bodies.   All the bows were made by local craftsmen.

Additionally, many other vendors were there that specialized in arrow manufacture, knives napped from obsidian, bow socks (protective covering) and a backcountry magazine  (Backcountry Hunters and Anglers.)
Outstanding presentations were offered by the Oregon Dept. of Fishing and wildlife on big horn sheep and moose.
