What is Primitive? Give us your thoughts?
« on: June 11, 2020, 03:50:31 pm »
Hey All,

We are conducting a survey.  It is the same survey that Primitive Archer Magazine published 25 years ago regarding the definition of What is Primitive.  We are curious if any opinions have changed in the past 25 years.

Would love for y'all to participate.  Hopefully we will be able to compare the results.

You can find that survey at this link:

along with our Father's Day sale, an article on oiling your bow, video, and some event updates.

The Primitive Archer Team.

Hi Calendargirl,

Intent and perspective is important... as is honesty and full disclosure.

I don't go to shoots or gatherings that use terms like primitive, traditional, or modern for purposes of segregation, so don't have an actual need for those terms.

I understand you used a survey about competition 25 years a ago, but would you care to help clarify todays question better by posting at the other thread?

Yes please provide the Purpose. History does repeat itself.

Energetically will I meet the enemies of my country. I shall defeat them on the field of battle for I am better trained and will fight with all my might. Surrender is not a Ranger word. I will never leave a fallen comrade to fall into the hands of the enemy and under no circumstances will I ever emb
