Can I Add Compound bow/ Archery talk in here?

Although I am also a Gun enthusiast and CPL (concealed pistol license) holder I have recently taken up the sport of Bow Hunting and also shoot Archery on an indoor league at the sportsmans club I belong to.
Any other Bow Hunters and/or Target shooters around here??

I own a crossbow but have never hunted with it. Used to have a compound bow but my shoulders got too painful to draw it back.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Apparently you can, the thread took it


Maybe the Forum's title ought to be a bit more encompassing?
but, I wanted it short and sweet.

I've done 'bout enough firing range time to nearly blow out my ear drums, , ,my brother was WA State Champ in Free-Bow back in the late 70's, , ,and this sounds like are REALLY good idea. I can see a Cross-bow, or compound bow in my future. There are a few archery ranges close (I think). Gonna have to visit a Cabela's and find a range.

There is such thing as ear protection. I did enough shooting without it to cause permanent damage before I was enlightened myself.

I've been a hunter most of my life and started bowhunting in 2010 and almost want to give up firearms hunting completely. It totally changes the game. I use a compound and feel safe shooting deer out to 60 yards. I am fortunate and live in the country so my range is out my back door and feel for those bow hunters that live in cities that prohibit shooting.

I have shot several deer with my crossbow and now hope to do so with my compound bow. I also gun hunt but really like the archery the best.
