I just got a recurve and I am planning on hunting in the future. Lot of practicing to do. Any tips for a newbie?

Anchor point is extremely important. Where you draw your string back to must be the same each time you shoot. Grazing the lips, cheek or nose are common.

With traditional bows, personally I'd recommend cultivating your instinctive shooting, and of course, keeping both eyes open. The late, great Fred Bear was one of the best instinctive shooters and bow hunters.

Watching that again reminds me how beautiful North America was before this current Brave New World nightmare.
