Default Recurve bow for beginner

Advertise Here

I haven't really learned much with archery but I was looking for a traditional recurve bow to lead me into eventually using a long bow for hunting but Id have to practice indoors or out until I felt comfortable enough to hunt. What types of bows and companies should I go after for a relatively simple bow to get into the sport with?

This is a simple and inexpensive bow that can be used for hunting later. I don't have one yet myself but intend to buy one as soon as finances allow.

Did you look at any of the other threads in this section? I ask as there are 130 posts dealing with this subject, in one way or the other, in the first 400.

Unless you specify a price range and a usage then the prices go from $40 to $4,000 and the draw weight from 10# to >100#...Figure $400 will set you up quite decently with bow, arrows, accessories etc.

Indoor strictly target ranges will max out at 35# and hunting is a minimum of 45#.

Look up PVC bow on youtube. You can make a pretty nice survival bow for cheap.
