Bow hunting is a commitment to a discipline that attracts a certain personality. We sit alone for hours in a tree stand, or maybe we hike deep and far for miles at elevation. We commit to an idea and stress over the most idiosyncratic details that ultimately are forgotten when we need them most. We obsess and debate over concepts of modern technologies, somehow neglecting that for tens of thousands of year’s animals had fallen victim to much more primitive techniques. Hunting with a bow may only be a viable option for several months a year, while time with one spent in hand never appears to end.
As many states loosen their regulations on crossbows it’s helping many hunters extend their hunting season. As with any change there is a great deal of misinformation being shot about. Recurve bows verses compound, bolt speed verses energy, plastic components verses metal, the list goes on and on.
My first hunting bow was an old compound handed down from a family friend. I have no idea what brand it was, and I suppose it doesn’t really matter. I do remember it had a 40-pound draw weight and no sights. I was 11 and it took me nearly a year to gain the strength to draw it.
