I can see where your're coming from and to a point I agree. Hunting in general is getting more technical with younger people rallying around the technical changes. Many are young enough that they can't comprehend where us old guys have been and the changes we have seen. Some for the better and some not so good. Archery and bowhunting is right up there, too, with probably more technical advancements than with guns. Where some are wrong though is that they think bows have change drastically from one year to the next when that is far from the truth.
I like to use my 40 years of compound shooting to tell many that since the early 70's compound bows haven't really changed all that much. Back then a bow consisted of a riser, two limbs, some wheels (cams), and cables and string. They are still that way today. Sure they've had many technical changes, but the mechanics are still the same. I love being labeled an old fogie.
As much as I enjoyed those old days when my eyes and body could shoot so much better there no denying that life evolves, archery evolves, hunting evolves. Us old guys just have to keep an open mind and evolve with it. I don't particularly agree with some of what's going on in the archery industry (ultra short bows), but I'm not one to dictate otherwise to the younger people. No sense in alienating them. Besides, it keeps the mind healthy learning new stuff all the time.
