Compund bow diagram and parts

The most popular bow today for hunting is the compound bow. The compound bow is so popular because it is easier to draw and hold than the long bow and the recurve bow. The long bow and the recurve bow require greater strength to draw and hold. All three bows require much practice before a person can develop the shooting skills necessary for hunting.
