Compound or Traditional

Recommended Posts

Currently I'm old and lazy,  but if you're looking to get the most enjoyment from your hunting experience then nothing beats shooting critters instinctively.   :up:

Started off with a recurve in 1974, switched to a longbow in 1982, and switched to using my own Hickory self bows in 1995.

MTH now THATS a neat trick how do you keep that arrow on the shelf when you hunt like that?

. Just wrap your serving slightly thick in the nock window. The nock point grabs tighter. You'll lose a fps or two but I'm shooting at game 25 yards or less so it doesn't effect my shooting.

Shooting a compound PSE now and been shooting compounds since forever. I don't see myself switching to anything else anytime soon.

I've shot all makes of bows but shot my Mathews Switchback XT for a while. Favorite bow ever. Did shoot a lowbow for fun and took a doe and also shot pheasant on the wing with it too. Lots of fun. Now shooting a crossbow since major surgery but I'm still able to be out in the woods.

Currently hunting with a compound, A PSE Source.

 

I really want to learn how to shoot a stickbow though. Nomad generously offered to show me the ropes when I get some free time and I'm definitely going to take him up on that offer sometime in the near future

No, I was just a kid in the 70's, wasn't permitted to wear the tight disco clothes. lol

I shoot a 2015 PSE Source HD and a 1972 Bear Kodiak 50#

 

Due to a lot of overtime at work this year I was not able to get out with the Bear.  I will get back out with it in the 2017 season, but still love shooting the compound also.
