I do a little archery and i'm looking at getting a bow as a long term investment both for hunting and as a survival tool. If TSHTF I would like a bow that I can both hunt with and defend myself with if need be. The problem I am having is what type of bow... Compound, recurve or longbow. My only real criteria for a survival bow is that it has to be maintenance free or close too it. I imagine a situation after TSHTF of possibly a few years or more where there will be no available archery repair shops. So far I am looking at a 'martin archery bamboo viper long bow' Should last a lifetime with little to no upkeep. but what about compound bows... once they are setup will they hold their own over the years, or do you need a lot of tools and such to keep them in tune. Also is there any benefit of one type over another as far as shooting goes... I see the compound as more of a short range tack driver. Thanks again !
