If so whats your favorite game? Biggest trophy? Archery or gun? Lets hear all of your stories. I use a long bow, made it myself out of swiss pear, tokin bamboo, and leapord wood. its 55lb draw, and a 30in draw. I personally like longbow over compound simply because of the challenge and feeling of killing an animal with something you made. Also with a compoud there is let off so your really only pulling a small percent of the actual draw lbs. Longbows you get the full power of the bow, and you generally cant pull the same weight you can a compound..
