I did the same thing in January after whitetail season was over here in Illinois. I'm slowly getting there, it's definatly not a pick up and shoot as acurate as the wheels but I have to say that I do enjoy it more. Here is my new baby...Morrison take down...





Sweeeet....

If I were a deer, I would be proud to have been shot with that beauty. [&:]

I like the skins but it's too heavy for me........ There is one on tradgang right now......Waiting on a Thermal and just got a Chek Mate Hunter II...Jump in head first I say[:@][:@]

I like the Actionwood for the overall heft of the riser, nice and stable in the hand....If your asking...

Buckslayer:

It is simply a matter of learning and following a different and correct process. Even though some aspects may be similar between a compound and a recurve, pretend that none are.

Once you accept that recurve is totally different, pretend that nothing related to compound applies, learn how to properly setup a recurve for your physical specs, learn how to properly setup and tune a recurve, understand how to obtain best arrow flight from a recurve, and understand how to troubleshoot a recurve, you will be an accurate stick shooter.

Lastly, you do not have to shoot a bare bow and you do not have to shoot instinctively. You can "Gucci" the bow.

Define what well enough is Bigbuckslayer3 ? I think theres no doubt c903 and myself could pick up the compounds again and shoot lights out compared to what we do right now. Is that the point of archery though, putting the arrow withing 1/4" of where its suppose to go every single shot ? Is 10" groups "good enough" ? 8" groups ? 2" groups ?

c903 - don't trick it out. Shoot off the shelf, seal skin, bare tune your shafts and you'll have arrow flight that the Hoyt guys will envy ! I made some 63# spine shafts up the other day and tried to get them all within 10 grains of each other, and though they're heavy (about 600 total grain weight) they fly nicely.

There was a thread on wet feathers ..... wet feathers shouldn't impact your shooting much if your shafts are tuned to your bow. I believe this. How many guys can strip their feathers/vanes off their shafts and their arrows fly straight ?

Nub:

Only when I go brain-dead and forget all I know about shooting and hunting with compounds, and only when what I have to say is strictly Trad related.

When I do choose to leave a room, I always back out. You just never know when there might be a Robert "Bob" Ford in the room.
