I know you nice folks don't have a crystal ball, but maybe you can point me in the right direction. Here is my tale. I'm an "older guy", will be 71 on the 16th. and have not shot a bow since my Ben Pearson with a strait pin for a sight, 45 years ago. Now that I'm retired, I am starting to do the things I never had time to do. I starting to fish, rifle/pistol shooting and golf. I still can hit a 7 iron 150 yards. We have a nice archery range a short distance from home. I can see my self out there 1-2 time a week. On Sat I will go to some of the larger sport stores and try out some bows and see what I still can "pull". I respect the sales person's time so I would like to know a little about what to look at. I think I would like to do targets now, and if I can get good enough, hunt pig in the winter. Thats my story, now the questions. Compound or Recurve, what brand(s). I would like to get a package for around $700. Thank you for your time, look forward to your suggestions.
