I went to a local archery shop today and looked over some inexpensive recurve bows. My wife let me go too. Maybe she will approve around 4 hundred to outfit my ranger wannabe identity.
Recurve archery is a dieing sport. Which is sad because it takes more skill than compound. (I bow hunt)

Cause recurve bows are artisan crafted, hard to make them to exacting olympic specifications to shoot 100m into a nickel. Im sure some company makes a carbon fiber yadda yadda at exactly 45.5# but so what. I dont want to spend 800 on a bow made by a guy for 15 an hour. Rather give it to the guy in turkey who makes em in a tent.

Estimating a draw weight for a stick you bout to bend the wrong fucking way is tough. You pretty much end up with what you get. You can always shave some off to make it more pliable and lower the draw weight, too.

Its too bad. Such a lovely thing to watch or participate in. plunk.

You already know someone is gonna do the whole, True detective hunting thing to you. "Oh you sit in your blind and wait for the buck to sniff your gash bait? I'm talking about tracking.. real hunting" lolol

Bow hunting still takes skill, even in blinds or a stand. It’s way more fun than deer hunting with a rifle

Haven’t gone in a couple years though

I hunted with a compound bow in the early 80s. Never a tree stand but lots of standing watching and waiting, then creeping and stealth walking to stand and watch some more.
The only buck I ever shot with the bow was one of my buck rabbits that got out and constantly evaded capture. I figured I needed the target practice. One shotted em.

Took the kids to a restaurant for the first time in over a year and it wasn't a disaster!
