4 compounds, one recurve. 5 total. The most recent purchase was in 2017, the others are pretty old (bought from Bigdan, while he had an archery store, so they have been around a while). This year I'm using one of the older bows a Jennings G2 from 2003. It seems like there were some big improvements in bows in the 80's, and 90's, but not really much since then.

I have three primary bows. Two for travel hunting and one that I leave at my cabin for whitetail hunting. Still have a couple older bows that I'm going to setup for bowfishing. Then a few kids bows and the wifes.

Without compiling the answers so far I'd bet that 'traditional' archers own a pile more than compound-only shooters. Myself, all recurves - PSE, Bear, Wing, Martin, Howatt (2), Morrison, and why do I feel like I'm missing a few? ;-)
