Patrick… we could split hairs on this one till the cows come home!
Is hunting over bait “Traditional”?
Is hunting from a climbing tree stand “Traditional”?
What if hunting from a high fence meant an area of 10,000 acres? Would that qualify for “Traditional”?
This is Traditional Bowhunter. You won’t see any Mathews Switchbacks here! And I don’t need an Allen Wrench to tune my Longbow.
My point is Ethics are Values which are Intrinsic to every person and hunter. It matters not what they carry in their hands. But even the interpretation is highly personal onto itself. However, Traditional Bow Hunting means hunting with a Longbow, Recurve, Selfbow or Flatbow.
