Throughout my journey in traditional bowhunting I have had a lot of help from fellow hunters, writers, podcasts, and videos.  If you are looking for information on traditional bowhunting, these are my go-to recommendations for media and knowledge.  All links will take you directly to each unique source of information.  This page is a work in progress.  Please visit again to see the additional resources.


TradQuest Podcast, hosted by James Orr and Robert Bourland, is a good listen for anything traditional archery.  These guys are big into Blacktail Deer, western hunting, and having exceptional guests.


Jason Samkowiak’s Traditional Bowhuting and Wilderness Podcast is an excellent source for information.  Jason has a wealth of knowledge to share with the world.  His tactics and know-how are hard to beat.

ShotIQ, also known as Ironmind Hunting/Academy, has an amazing program that can give you the success to overcome target panic – so long as you’re willing to work for it.  Joel Turn, Founder of ShotIQ, shares a wealth of knowledge and tips to lead you into success in an online course.  I was a little hesitant at first about an online archery course, but the system works great.  The ability to go back at anytime and work through lessons to stay sharp is by far the best part to me.  This is an invaluable resource and course I recommend for anyone in archery.


Ron Rohrbaugh is an amazing writer and story teller.  His book, A Traditional Bowhunter’s Path, is an easy read with a ton of information in it.  I recommend this read to anyone that’s interested in traditional bowhunting.  You can pick the book up from his website.


Traditional Bowhunter Magazine puts out 6 issues a year.  The magazine is full of great writings – both stories and tips.  Their website is also a good place for information.
