      I bought a modern recurve martin cougar to shoot the traditional way without sights or pins. Is there a drawback from shooting a bow that was meant to be used with sights, stabilizer, and pins?

      I remember those recurves. The Cougar and Lynx were very nice bows and are somewhat sought after these days. Enjoy yours.

      With respect to your question, no, there is no disadvantage to shooting one of those without sights and a stabilizer. The truth is any recurve can be shot with or without those accessories. How you choose to shoot it is up to you.

      A couple years ago I decided I wanted a slightly longer hunting recurve, so I bought an old Sky Conquest riser (think Olympic recurve riser) from a friend of mine in California. He used it to win the USA Archery National Field Championship the previous year. I put some heavier limbs on it, slid on some camo covering and took it to the woods. Last season I put three deer in the freezer with it.

      We have a large chest freezer. It’ll hold a moose. 😀
