I don't ever promote Bow hunting without practicing from season to season.
when I learned to hunt with a Bow I learned from Fred Bear through his books and videos.
I became a very good instinctive shooter, that was many years ago using a recurve bow
but even today If I were using a recurve I'd still feel confident in my ability to shoot
well enough to hunt without much practice BUT I would still practice.
With todays advancements in Bow technology
I now rely heavily on todays faster harder hitting compound bows with sights for greater accuracy
but no matter how confident I become in my shooting ability I know I still need to practice year after year after year.
