I started shooting and hunting with a recurve 30 years ago and hung it up for a number of reasons 18 years ago. Pulled it out again yesterday, shot 40 arrows and it kicked my butt. I feel like someone beat me with a ball bat today. I'm sure I can get in shape again, but I'm wondering if a compound would be kinder to old joints and not have such a steep curve to get my bow muscles in hunting shape. I've shot a few compounds, but not for any sustained amount of time and not in a hunting situation. Anyone made the switch from recurve to compound and have some advice to offer?
