    I've got a good friend who just last year dropped his agreement with Hoyt and went back to recurves.
    He says it's the most enjoyment he's got out of shooting in years.

    Good luck and have fun.

    In the grander scheme of things it is the simplicity of the longbow; a piece of wood and a string that is warm in the hand, an extension of the person holding it. When I shoot a longbow I feel the bow and it seems to come alive in my hand and with it I become an archer again. I need no mechanical advantage, no rest, no sight, no release, no stabilizers, and no dampeners it’s just me a piece of wood and a string….. A feeling I lost, a feeling I missed, a feeling I love...

    I know what you mean.

    I shoot compounds for competition. A lot of great shooters around here and I'm too competitive for my own good.

    My recurve is for hunting. It's actually a better weapon for the close shots we get in the woods around here.

    my longbow - I shoot it to relax & watch the arrows fly. I'm not good enough with it for hunting, but it's a lot of fun walking in the woods shooting at "trophy" stumps.
