Recurve Bow Hunting – Public Land Bowhunting from the GROUND!

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


For those of us who live the bow hunting lifestyle, hunting season never truly ends. We devise ways to spread those sacred months across an entire year. Some hunters scout obsessively, pouring over aerial imagery and trail camera photos. Others fiddle with hunting gear, tuning, honing and sighting. I build selfbows.

I’m not entirely sure why bow building and hunting with recurves and longbows is so captivating for me. It’s certainly not the most efficient weapon. But if there is one universal truth about achievement it’s that it requires an obstacle. The quest for a true giant whitetail buck is mine.

This week we’re bowhunting from the ground in Idaho’s rugged public land backcountry. Longbow hunting is tough. Spot and stalk hunting is tough. Wise old big bucks are tough. Put all that together and you’ve got a challenge for the most seasoned woodsman!

I appreciate that y’all hunt in plaid. Nothing wrong with full Kuiu of FirstLite, but I think videos often make it seem like those are the key to success and that anything short will result in failure.

Riley Pate says:

Charlie Palmer says:

Peter Johnson says:

I hunt Whitetails in nw Arkansas with a 50lb recurve. I have use for all the meat. I don't hunt during rut. I wait until mid January. Don't care about bucks. I get quality meat.
Nothing on earth compares to a successful recurve bow hunt in icy cold weather.
I'm 62 years old and won't quit soon.

Alecs Barus says:

What's the song at 13.30 please?

A Dog In a Cowboy Hat says:

I’ve got friends who think you need the most newest and expensive equipment, to them hunting is no more than a game for them. I never need that equipment, everything I use is either passed down or taught to me.

Albert Guerra says:

Wow, great video man! For the love of the hunt!

Kenton Ward says:

Boy that sucks! Been there , the thrill of getting close and your almost there then the wind swirls and it’s the white flag running away!! It’s what keeps me trying!

Howard Richburg says:

I appreciate the real hunt. We dont always connect.

Kamron Safaie says:

Where are you hunting at?

Awesome Studios says:

I would love to do this but I don’t have anywhere to go

So since I can’t do it the next best thing is to watch someone else do it
