|Welcome to the HuntingNut Gigmaster. Shooting the" traditional" bows is definitally more difficult to master the the compounds, when I first started in archery (the mid to late 70's) I shot a recurve ( I wish I still had it) I think it was a Bandito by Howett Archery. My buddy took two doe's on Sat with his Long Bow. Now I shoot the compounds but I can see myself going back a traditional bow at some point.|
I still have one of my older bows from the mid 70s, before compounds were generally available. It is a 50 lb. Shakespeare Yukon Wonderbow. It shoots as good today as it ever did.
My compounds are wonderful shooting instruments, but there is something about a traditional bow, some kind of simplistic elegance, that is very appealing to my primitive side.
