Default i'd have to be mad

i've been shooting the recurve that was built for me quite a bit and i am improving but i'd have to be mad to hunt with it. i shot the x-force and the pse vengeance for the first time in a while. I'm surprised that i didn't robin hood any. from both bows you could pull all the arrows with one hand all at once. where the recurve sinks in about 4" the compound breaks the back side by 4". man i like shooting my wheelie bows.

I picked up a Bear Black Panther recurve last week and have been shooting it some. It brings back old memories and sore muscles. Right now I'm all aver the 3-D target but it is fun. I should get the doz of oxford cedar arrows tomorrow, I hope, and we'll see how they fly.

hm does that all over ever go away? at 20 yards i can get a lung hit 80% of the time and that ain't good enough.

Yeah...it goes away. Keep it up. Are you shooting instinctive, or gap?

You will never be able to make the same groups as you do with a compound, but after shooting mine for several years I am fairly confident with it now. This year I am trying to extend my effective range to 22 yards...last year was 15. Whatever you do, just try to stay consistent and you can learn the pattern. For me anchoring the string, and bow arm consistency were/are the hard things to get figured out. Good luck.
