From the first few words and images in this video, it’s clear that primitive archery transcends passion for Ryan Gill. It is truly his calling.
Watch, listen and learn as Ryan explains how he created his bow and planned his hunt, even adding some valuable information about the primitive bowhunting and craftsmanship traditions he has studied in such detail. From finding the wood to the impact shot and afterward, Ryan’s research culminates in a timeless and successful hunt.
One of the most moving moments is when Ryan says:
A particularly meaningful place is on the thick branch of a live oak. This tree has spoke to me for many years and it lends itself well to the hunt. This is where I stalked and killed my first deer with a bow 9 years prior.
Join Ryan with his ever-present camera as he tracks the deer about 80 yards, finds it, and then explains how the primitive arrows work in a little more additional detail.
This video preserves the legacy of hunters for modern generations.
