I wouldnt say it is ruining the sport. I like to keep my bowhunting simple. I just started using a release a couple years ago after years of finger shooting. And I shoot with only one sight pin set at 20 yards. But to each his own. If a guy likes something and thinks it will help him be more accurate and have a quick, humane kill than by all means use it if it is legal.

I don't think it ruins anything. But I do think the more serious people get, the less gadgets they use.

The more serious I got in bow hunting, the more gadgets I REMOVED.

I go really lite now. Bow, four arrow, plastic quiver, sites and limb savers.

No stabalizer, and nothing else hanging off the bow.

raghorn, i totally agree 100% technology has taught some of us that we really dont need that stuff!! but i do think technology has made some very good advancements in archery broadheads especially and i think the manufacturers are making leaps and bounds as far as working out the problems with bows.The empasis seems to be on lighter,faster and more forgiving bows if you examine each area you will see that the advancements arent so bad! if you make a bow lighter than its obviously going to be more comfortable to shoot, the more comfy the better.Faster, advancements in cam design,limb design and cable design have made bows faster is arrow speed bad, hope not its a major contributor to kenetic energy so is that bad, No! and finally they are building bows to be easier to tune and are easier to shoot, i think this will help people to know how there bow works and understand it a little better therefore increasing confidence.So in my opinion i think technology is good but we must be careful of the gimmicks and gadgets and Raghorn, hit the nail on the head by saying the more knowledgable you become about bowhunting the less you will depend on gimmicks and gadgets!

I am with you 100 percent on the technologies on the core componants, such as the bows and broadheads. I bought a new bow last year and started shooting the spitfire broadheads. I absolutely love both.

Technology won't ruin anything, but people using it will!!! I thank all the advances in technology, it has helped our sport grow by leaps and bounds. One of the main reason more people weren't bow hunters 30 yrs. ago, is because of the constant practice that shooting a traditional bow takes. Just my thoughts.
