I dumped the wheels about 8 years ago and never looked back. It's 10 times easier for me to bow kill deer with my recurve than it ever was with a compound. I believe it's because I don't have to worry about lining up sights and such. Welcome to traditional bow hunting. Hope you love it!

I went cheap for a starter bow and got the samick sage 45# but so far I don't see anything wrong with it.

Samick is a good rig I see several of them on the 3d range every shoot and have 3 or 4 in the youth bow set up and they have held up just fine.
if you stick with it long enough you might get interested in other types of bows like long bows or self bows but what you have is the best type to learn on.
focus on your form for now and get the basics down it will make every thing much easer later on.

What about shooting barebow compound with fingers? I guess I am stuck somewhere in the middle. \:\)

I think that's like being a little bit pregnant StalkingWolf but a good start down the right road.

something about walking to the stand in the morning with a bow as light as my fly rod
