Is Traditional Archery Right for You?

More and more folks are switching to traditional archery, but is it the right choice for you?

It’s been three years since I took the plunge and sold my compound bow to focus on traditional archery. I’ve missed a few animals and missed a lot of opportunities due to the stickbow’s limited range, but the animals I’ve harvested have been far more rewarding than those I took with a compound.

If you are thinking of switching to traditional archery, consider these negatives first.

There you have it. Don’t switch to traditional archery gear to gain status; it doesn’t earn you any. Don’t switch because you want to kill more animals; you’ll probably kill less. Don’t switch because you don’t want to shoot your bow; you’ll need to practice A LOT more!

If you’re not scared and still thinking about switching to a stickbow, watch this video to learn three reasons why you should make the switch.

What do you think? Are you ready to turn in your cables and cams for the simple elegance of an old fashioned stick and string? Only you know the answer.
