A guy at work has said that he wants to get into archery. I thought that was cool. I've always had an interest in archery but never got around to actually doing it. I own two rifles that I take to the range and target shoot once in a while but range fees are expensive and so is ammo. Also, the closest gun range is like 40 miles away. I figure if I got into archery I'd be saving money in the long run and satiating my need for "precision accuracy" via a deadly sport. I'm debating whether to get a compound or recurve bow. Ideally I'd like to do both but my budget makes that impractical. Considering I might want to actually go hunting some day, I'll probably get a compound bow. So, does anyone else here shoot seriously? Offer some advice to a newbie to the sport?
