Default How come I didn't do this sooner?

Well, I was at the range today for a work party. Its a get together where the members build targets, maintain the range, etc.

Anyway, this older member had a couple recurves that he was shooting. I was talking to him about them and he let metry one out. Guys, it was a smooth shooting bow! I shot about a dozen arrows through it and did not do too terribly bad considering it was my first time.

I'm thinking about buying one as soon as I get some more info about the different types and such. Actually, hemakes recurves so I may give him some business.

I just thoughtI would share. I lovemy compound but would love to have a traditional bow as well.

Be careful, once it grabs you, you can't get away.

No He's not jokeing around. Stop now!!! You will lose all intrest in your compound Trust me. I was in the same spot you were two years ago. Go shoot a new Bowtech Guardian. Its cheeper

Face it, you already got bit. Don't try to fight it. Expect it to get worse.

One day, that Tribute will be in desperate need of a tune-up and you aren't going to be in the mood to fart with it. You'll only want to go out and kill a little time shooting. You'll grab the recurve and head out the door. That'll pretty much drive a couple of nails into the compound coffin right there. Oh, you'll eventually go ahead and tune it up and get it shooting again, but it'll become more and more common that you'll wind up grabbing the recurve to go shooting.

You might never lose your taste for compounds, and that's fine. Quite a few of us shoot and enjoy both. But you'll soon develop a decided preference for the stickbow.

When that happens, I'll be first in line to tell you, I TOLD YOU SO! [8D]

Very, VERY addictive! It can be tough to hunt with trad equipment, but there's also advantages over compounds. One big thing--could call it an advantage, or disadvantage, depending on your POV--if something goes wrong, 99 times out of a hundred you have to blame it on yourself. One of the main reasons I swapped over from compounds was I had trouble with something always getting loose, bumped, moved, bent, broken, etc.
