To each their own on hunting methods. I've shot recurve till the shoulder/neck gave up then compound and a little crossbow. As long as you're hunting I see no difference in what you choose. You still have to do the scouting, stand set-up, ect. Recurve/long bow shooting does take more practice to shoot one very well. You just have to be content in what you want to hunt with.
