NO apollo,lot's of us love triditional that's were most of the old guy's came from.
When i started bowhunting i was 15 that was 30 years'ago the first bow i had cost $55.00 it was a bear kodac recurve i killed a doe 2 week's after i got it,a spike a week later & at least 2 deer a year from then until now
but like now modern technology catch's up and the art changes & get's harder & to get an advantage on game animal's u need more pin-point shot's
dont get me wrong stick bow's , it's the most awesome thing to harvest an animal looking down the arrow at him. but after a few year's you start shooting 3-d's shooting a superfast-targetbow& shooting the trid.class u start to think about the speed & getting an advantage on hunting.
I still still shoot an old hatfield though for fun & 3-d triditional.
have fun with it but also explore all of what is about archery.

I truly enjoy going out and flinging arrows from my old recurve. One of these days I'm gonna hunt with it again. Well maybe, it takes alot of practice with those things.

Thats why i am starting off with just the recurve longbow with no attachments. I love the thrill of a challenge and what better way than to hunt an animal (i intend to actually stalk my "prey" and not use a treestand, me and a friend have worked out a very complicated system that is very effective) than with the bare essentials, a bow and some arrows. Just thinking about it keeps my blood pumping. The other thing that makes it so interesting for me is that it actually takes practice, now i am not saying that nothing else does but i want to be at the top of MY game not at the top of my equipments game.
