    Any archers out there if so are you primative traditional or modern I do it all but I don't really like cross bows I think they are over rated but still shoot them.

    Primitive instinctive archer here, and don't care for the crossbow either, they aren't as fast to handle as a bow, somewhat awkward in the woods, just my own preferences.

    Modern for me! I shoot a "Old" Martain twin cam Rage. it can go from 70 lbs to 90 with the 1 1/2 in over draw making it a serious hunting tool. It can match many more modern bow's in speed and is just the right combo light and balanced. I do ok with a Re curve, but do miss the extra power the compound gives. Traditional Long Bow's are really cool, and the utility cannot be beat, but I still prefer modern! Cross Bow hunting would kinda be cool, but the second shot disadvantage kills it for me!

    Mine is a PSE Elite Graphite from the late 1980's. It was sized for my fairly short draw length and have never felt a reason to get something newer. I'll get a picture tomorrow, but it's pretty low tech compared to the new stuff. I like archery but never get enough time to keep good at it. I figure when we run out of bullets I can always make arrows.

    I'm self taught on a Bear 55# recurve. Got good enough to assist in teaching a lady's college class! :D That was a bummer!!!
    Until recently I was shooting a Mission Craze compound. But my luck ran out! I've got severe arthritis in my shoulders, especially the right. I'll never draw a bow again, and I miss it like the devil!

    I have nine bows, the long-bow being my favorite followed by my recurves. I own a couple of wheel-bows, one set up for fishing. I rarely hunt any more, just can't find the time, but I shoot pretty regularly. I had a cross-bow but traded it to one of the guys in my pistol club for a 10mm S&W revolver set up for USPSA.

    Had some guys who shoot compounds over the other day to try out some's incredible how different the shooting style seems to be.

    Also, going from a target to a random distance object is a whole 'nother ballgame isn't it.
