We set another page to just link out discussions and articles that we felt might be of interest and possibly educational in the heavier arrow and trad archery topics. Check it out periodically as we add things as we find them.
We have found these and other links useful in researching additional information on Archery, Hunting with Traditional Equipment, trip planning and more...

At long last, Belgian filmmaker Christopher Daley has unleashed our little documentary on the world. This link will take you to the film page on my book sales website, and includes a 2+ minute trailer. http://www.davidpetersenbooks.com/dvd-david-petersen.html
I continue to struggle to “position” the film in my own mind, as well as for reviewers, sales etc., but for now have settled on, first, “A hunting film for non-hunters,” and second and more subtly, “One man’s attempt to explore and accommodate existential angst in conspiracy with nature.” On a deep personal level, it is my best attempt—with generous cooperation from the filmmaker—to honor my beloved partner Caroline and the amazing life we forged and enjoyed together.

His most recent production has been a long time coming. The film first debuted at the 2014 Backcountry Hunters Anglers Rendezvous in Denver and received a standing ovation from the crowd of a few hundred hard core hunters. Since then it's toured around North America with the Hunting Film Tour and has been getting great reviews. It is now available on YouTube. Clay speaks to the heart of why we hunt. This is a hunting film like you've never seen before...

BAREBOW! by Dennis Dunn
BAREBOW! is a personal account of Dunn’s 40-year odyssey to harvest all 29 huntable species of big game in North America, ranging from Whitetail Deer to Tule Elk to Grizzly Bear.
In hushed tones of awe, patience and appreciation, Dunn takes his readers into the wild and woolly wilderness areas of North America. Remarkably, Dunn’s odyssey began as an unmentored boy’s interest in archery. His dream of joining North America’s elite bowhunting fraternity of those who have taken North America’s Super Slam would come much later. In BAREBOW!, outdoor writer Dennis Dunn teams up with two renowned wildlife artists, Hayden and Dallen Lambson, to produce an eye-catching and stirring account of North American wildlife, their habits and habitats, and the enduring connection made by one man in tracking, hunting and harvesting the North American Super Slam with a bow and arrow.
Breathtaking in its illustrations and spellbinding in its storytelling, BAREBOW! is the must-have addition to every hunter’s den, great room, or bedside table. Available in our shopcart.
