Lets not open that can of worms when we compare archery to crossbows.With more and more states allowing the use of the crossbow,I hear a lot of people taking up archery that never did before. Our local shop said that last fall crossbows out sold compound bows 2 to 1.
For 50 plus years I have always been a rifle hunter but in my older age I have turned to archery hunting. Better weather,less competition,and can hunt the rutt..
Just lucky at my age to be able to go.
