    Recently took up traditional archery. 60lb recurve that I forget the brand. Passed on two deer that didn't offer the right shot. Hopefully nail one soon

    Definitey traditional.
    I have a 55lb recurve and it is an absolute bitch to shoot, takes a while to build up the right muscles to be able to shoot it comfortably.
    But once you get used to it it's not so bad, and the satisfaction of shooting if accurately with no sights is great.

    The best thing for me was trying to see people with big heavy compound bows shoot it and fail spectacularly!

    Got a recurve just before Xmas while my wife and son picked up compounds.
    Recurve just felt better to handle so will get used to that and try it hunting.

    Barebow compound. All the fun of trad shooting but ease of tunability of a compound. Also lots faster
