    If you have the money go with the compound. If you like more of a challenge stay with the recurve. I hunt with a recurve and love the fact that I have to do some real hunting to get in close.

    I learned on that very same recurve its a solid bow keep practicing with that beauty and you will be the envy of your compond buddies if you can master that bow a compound will feel like a walk in the park.

    If you are going to get serious about bow hunting, then i think you should upgrade to a compound

    I would personally get a compound, but recurves work great. If you can shoot out to 30 yards there is not really any point in changing.

    If you shoot the recurve proficiently why bother?

    I would keep the recurve to use when you become better and more used to bowhunting. I would definately get a compound. They are easier to shoot and starting with a compound will get you used to bowhunting and getting close to the deer.

    The recurve is great for bowfishing but if you really want to succed with deer and turkeys get a 60-70 lb compound with 80% let off. Use quality arrows and broadheads.

    If your'e not proficirnt with the recurve get a good quality compound for hunting, but keep the recurve for fun/targets, etc! kolbster's right about the draw weight, 60-70 is good.
    Lots of Native American took down a lot of deer with homemade recurves though.
