Plane or bow? Plane or bow? Plane or bow? Man! I'd like to do both.
Both is better - archery equipment is relatively inexpensive compared to a DLG, and lasts longer. Start off with a recurve bow and low-cost carbon arrows, and work your way up. One example:
If you get into sights and stabilizers and daily massages like Lee, then the costs go up significantly, but they're never outrageous. The biggest temptation is to buy a "manly" bow with high draw force that doesn't allow you to develop good style. Or so I'm told, since I'm just starting.
