  • Bow Hunting

    Hey everybody, I live in Pennsylvania (near Philly), and was looking for some advice on buying a 45lbs recurve bow. I heard the company "Bear" and "Matthews" are both good. I cant spend over 150$ on the bow probably so looking for one used.

    The advice I need is, what bow model is quality for a good price? I'm target shooting, not hunting (yet). help is appreciated! thanks

    Re: Bow Hunting

    The thread is called 'bow hunting', but you say you're more interested in target shooting. Which is correct? I was under the impression that compounds were better for hunting, but I'm far from an expert.

    I'd recommend heading over to www.reddit.com/r/archery and looking around there (make sure to read the FAQ and search for a few related terms, they're a bit cranky about people asking obvious questions). Whenever I'm looking to find out more about a particular skill, its subreddit is usually my first port of call.

        Bear is good, Martin is good, Pearson is pretty good, but an old Hoyt would be great. Make sure someone who knows recurve archery goes with you to buy- making sure a used bow is safe to shoot is really important here, and it's easy to abuse a recurve. (It's also pretty easy to have them last forever if you're not trying to abuse 'em.)

        You got your draw length figured out, right? For a new guy, 45lb bows get heavy really quick if you're pulling 31-32", etc.
        OPS, the bacon is on you.
