At least for me, it’s a matter of practicality and age. At this stage, muscle mass is decreased, strength is decreased, I’ve got ZERO experience with a bow (except playing around as a kid 60 years ago), and plenty enough left to do with the time I’ve still got on mother earth. I’m lucky to get to the range enough to keep my firearm skills close to where I’m comfortable with them. Maybe if I was 20 years younger I’d think about archery. I can’t control 100% of the circumstances that could come, and need to keep as close to being able to handle the ones I can halfway control, so firearms it is, for me at least. I just don’t have time left to get good enough with shot placement with a bow and arrow.
