About The Author Tom Kidwell has most likely covered more ground walking with his bow and arrows than a seasoned marathon runner has covered in their running lifetime. He resides in Southwestern Oklahoma, where he is semi-retired, and works as a cowhand on a ranch there... not because he has to, but because he enjoys it. We first bowhunted together in the fall of 1963, soon to be fifty years ago. He has always told me that bowhunting was not about the trophies on the wall, not about the meat in the freezer, and especially not about the killing of an animal. For as long as I have known him, he has stressed that the most important thing to him in bowhunting was the friends he has made along the way. I am proud to consider myself one of them. - Andrew Littleman

There are those among us hunters, who revel in the minimalistic pursuit of wild animals, using the most rudimentary of tools, and seeking out the whole of the experience, up close and personal, and as intimately involved with our prey as we possibly can be. This experience rewards us with the greatest sense of accomplishment and challenge, and connects us directly with our forefathers and ancient pasts. It, too, cements our admiration and awe for the wild places and animals we share this journey with along the way. Classic Bowhunting is our vehicle in this journey... a completely different pathway of regression, rather than the technological domination over mother nature and our inadequacies in seeking and taking our prey. This acceptance of the challenges, enhances our immersion and participation into the wild and natural world, and replenishes our spirit. Enjoy adventures with real "stick and string" appeal, in some of the wildest country in North America.
