I kind of like it that we are NOT mainstream for many of the reasons already mentioned above. I kind of feel like we are the underground and like it that way. If everyone did it, I wouldn’t be as inclined as makesmoosecry also pointed out. I feel like we are the bootlegged demo of the mordern archery world.
Mainstream (to me) means hunting shows and advertisements. People who watch hunting shows tend to only focus on the KILL. A buddy who works in a bowhunting store always says that the only videos that sell are kill shots or product related.
Our ilk generally do it for the hunting experience with the kill as the icing on the cake. This isn’t generally a big seller in our modern impulsive society.
