Partly because of the cost of ammo, I'm considering giving archery a try. I haven't handled a bow since the 1960's and because the technology has changed so much, can anyone give me some advice on gear? Y'know, compound vs. re-curve, vs. long bow. I've been pricing bows lately and find it hard to believe some of the prices I've seen. One off the shelf at Wally World is $250.00, and I'm wondering if archery would really be less expensive. I likely won't hunt with one, but mainly stay with target shooting.
