    Switching from modern firearm to archery seems like a tough move.  Has anyone done it recently?

    Well, my's called patience.

    I'm kind of my neck of the woods, we have a local archery club whose members have been kind enough to put up with an old fart like me attempting to learn the craft of archery.  These guys really helped me figure out what kind of bow to buy, how to breathe, how to stand...just about everything!  As a lifelong firearm user, it hasn't been easy...heck, shooting is much easier than using a bow...but archery has benefits you never even thought of.

    Try finding a local group of archers and ask (I know, I know!) for a little help.

    I am into both and I think that archery is more difficult compared to using firearms. You require a lot of practice and persistence to perfect this skill. If you are properly exposed to the sport of archery, you will truly enjoy it for the simple fact that theres so much stealth and sneakiness involved. Finding an archery club nearby your locality will definitely help.

    Hunting with archery equipment is a bit more tough but it's also a lot more fun. Maybe you don't come home with a full ice chest of meat like with a modern firearm but the hunt is definitely more satisfying! I hunt with traditional archery equipment so you have even have better skills with the equipment and be a better hunter. That is one of the perks of hunting with traditional or modern archery equipment , YOU BECOME A BETTER HUNTER. It's a lot harder to get within 5 to 25 yards to a game animal but when you really develop your hunting skills it is possible and in my opinion makes for a more pleasurable, satisfying, and exciting hunt.
