I'm tired of the archery rat race
It seems like all I do is look for the next best great thing in archery. whether it's the new model of bow or a new release, broadhead, etc. that's gonna make me a great shooter or hunter.......
I've bought 3 bows and probably a half dozen rests and sights to try in the last year, and to be honest, none of them have really got me excited or made me want to shoot every day. It seems like it's all about the equipment, and keeping up with the Jones.
So I'm going old school.........
Tomorrow, I'm going to buy a new string and a dozen arrows for my old Bear Kodiak takedown recurve, and I'm going to devote one full year to shooting it without picking up anything modern with training wheels, or fiber optics, or a dropaway rest, etc.
Wish me luck, I'm gonna need it.........
p.s. if you want to flame me or make fun of me, go ahead, I can take it.......

Good luck to ya.
I think you will have a lot more fun.
I myself am getting out of the archery rat race also. But I'll be going back to rifles and pistols.
Talk about holding resale value.Never buy reloads from a man named Stumpy, Lefty or Nub

go for it, it can only make you a better shooter, not that you don't shoot good now. I have never seen you shoot so I really wouldn't know , oh heck with just enjoy yourself
