Does any one find that using a traditional bow gives you more of a sence of pride then a compound?

    I think doing anything in a traditional manner provides more of a challenge and certainly a greater sense of accomplishment.

              I've never used a traditional bow, so I really can't compair the two. I love the rush of taking an animal with a compound though.

                Absolutley, I always here from the non-hunters say that its not fair because you use a compound bow. Using a traditional bow levels the playing field. It tkes alot of practice to get a deer with your traditional bow.

                  It definately feels like ore of an accomplishment, but it also brings us closer to our the prehistoric hunter within all of us. Using a stick and a string to bring down an animal to survive, its what we were meant to do!

                      I know several fellows who would not hunt with anything but a take down recurve. Some guy in Montana makes them and they are not cheap. One friend sticks with a longbow and is usually effective. They just don't care for the gadgets and gizmos of a high tech compound. One such archer told me that if you don't buy the newest latest greatest compound each year you are considered to be behind the times.

                        I use a compound bow, but i think using a traditional recurve would give me a sense of pride.

                          I too am a confirmed traditionalist archer. Partially it is due to all the time I spent goofing off in the SCA, but mostly it is because the weird let off on the compound draw has always thrown my form off and I can't hit worth a damn with a compound. My recurve I'm pretty good with, even won a contest once.
                          The other thing is that I'm just too cheap to want anything that would require buying all new gear every year just to keep up with the Joneses.

                            A traditional bow offers more forgiveness than a compound because it is taller. The advantage to a compounds is that it is smaller and can be carried around and into a treestand a lot easier. I wouldn't say there is too much more satisfaction in taking game with a traditional rather than a compound. They are both great methods of hunting.

                              I have never used a traditional so I sort of feel that a compound is a "new" way of hunting for me anyway. You could make the same argument comparing an x-bow and a compound.
