The Traditional Journey Continues
The second in a series of books chronicling the foundations and spirit of hunting with the bow and arrow. The Traditional Journey Continues is an easy-reading collection of stories, bridging more than a century, about how hunting with the bow and arrow can, and does, positively impact our lives.
This book’s editor, Member M. R. James, notes “this is a book for every single bowhunter out there! It’s 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!”
Read the story of Ishi as told by his friend and hunting companion Will “Chief” Compton. Join Dr. Saxton Pope as he relates Art Young’s adventures in Alaska in the early 1920s. Glenn St. Charles’ personal account of taking his first-ever deer on a snowy Washington State wilderness hunt, and Fred Bear’s personal account of tagging a Wyoming elk in 1952, will have you feeling you were right there experiencing it all with them.
Contemporary authors, Fred Asbell, John Gardner, Marv Clyncke, Len Cardinale, Doug Clayton, Mike Schlegel, Jay St. Charles and Glenn Hisey, dive into the feelings and emotions we experience with participation in the varied activities known as bowhunting.
This book also documents the continued success and effectiveness of the simple bow and arrow - ample evidendence of the effectiveness of the skilled archer using simple equipment.

A Multitude of great field photos enhance the listings.
Informative, inspiring and timeless, this book is a must for every bowhunter’s personal library.
A Traditional Journey
This is not a record book, though it does contain a listing of record animals taken with traditional bows. Instead, it’s an epic cross-section of the SPIRIT – the soul – of hunting with the bow and arrow. Whether you shoot a recurve, longbow or a compound, this book will speak to you.
Thought-provoking chapters and commentary explore the principles and values of bowhunting. Hunting stories from five different eras (including original texts from Saxton Pope, Fred Bear, Glenn St. Charles, Nathan Andersohn and Pat Lefemine) compare and contrast the spirit, excitement and language over nearly 100 years of hunting with the bow and arrow. Additional chapters provide a sampling of the finer aspects of the art and craft of bowhunting: stalking, hunting from the ground, instinctive shooting, the fun of shooting bows, bow building and customizing arrows. Contributors include T. J. Conrads, Dale Karch, Monty Browning, Marv Clyncke, G. Fred Asbell, Harvard Ebers, Fred Richter, Fred Eichler, Jay St. Charles, Tom Parsons and Dwight Schuh.
More than 7,750 record book entries taken with a longbow, recurve or selfbow (deadline 1/1/2007). Full color photos throughout the book.
A book for every bowhunter’s library – interesting, informational, inspiring and timeless.
