    Dear all,

    I'm an avid archer and hunter from England, though sadly the law here doesn't permit the two to be combined. I hunt deer and other game with a rifle, though I've always wanted to bow hunt. I first encountered the sport on a trip to Canada a while back, and since I love archery and hunting I want to get involved, even if it involved travelling abroad. I currently shoot traditional recurve and English longbow.

    Welcome to the forum! I was surprised and dissappointed to just recently learn that bowhunting was illegal in the UK. It would be a dream to stalk red stag in the highlands! But you will also make lots of connections here with bowhunters around the world.
    Happy hunting!

    Welcome to the forum. BOWHUNTING ILLEGAL?? Wow... I would have believed that using a bow should to hunt should be legal every where.

    Even shooting a rat with a bow would be illegal here.

    Welcome to the site! That sucks that you can't hunt. Hopefully someday that will change.

    Glad you found us, Josh. If you ever make it to New Mexico, let me know and I'll tell you where to hunt. Good luck.
