I am also new to the sight. I have had good fortune to harvest multiple whitetail from the ground, but only from setting up natural blinds. No luck / skill in stalking them. Only twice did I come into sooting range while actively stalking them with the bow. Good luck.

my thoughts on recurves is dont get cought up practicing your shots from any given yardage shoot from a spot take a step or two and shoot again this will help you become instinctive and if you get lucky enough while stalking and jump one up you will stand a better chance at a snap shot !good luck &let us know how it goes.

thanks for the advice and greetings from everyone. so i went out and bought my first set of arrows and it totaled $170 that is insane, then i forgot about the inserts for the shafts. at least i don't have to re-buy anything, any advice on things i might have missed on equipment before i go broke on gas.

1-bow
2-arrows w/ fletchings, heads, and soon inserts
3-arrow rest
4-braided wrist thingy so i don't drop it
5-quiver
6-target heads

thank you all for the help

I started out shooting with a hand me down ben pearson bow.its white and orange and you put the arrowss on the grip to shoot ,Havent used it in years it was given to me by a good friend who recently passed away.He lived for deer hunting he was a NY fire fighter back in the day befor scott packs etc,anyway i was tought that you visualize and pick a spot.ya know what i could shoot bulls eyes all day then i got a hand me down compound ya know the kind with no let off all aluminum.no fancy sights ,rest etc.ya know what it killed deer dead.I think its a disgrace to charge 800 $ for a bare bow by the time your done its a grand .Thats alot of money if its not more power to ya.i learned bare hand and i still believ everyone should learn the basics.sorry to rant but im disgusted with the industry

i don't know much about the industry yet, but my grandpa and i always went survival camping when i was a kid and i loved it. since then i always wanted to hunt, for me hunting means to use your head and skill to out wit the animal not buy all the best equipment to make it easier. if i wanted an easy kill i would just get one of the M24's from the ams room and shoot from 1,000m. anyway i cant wait to go and have some fun, in the off season i am joining the on post archery club so i can work on form and build good habits.
