Default Its finally here!

My wife picked it up at the post office today. I took a couple of shots with it in the back yard tonight. It was really too dark to do much good but I hit the target at 10 yds with both shots. I have some 2117s to shoot while I work on form and then I;ll worry about proper tuning. Darton Super-Flite Hunter 56" and 49#. It has a7 3/4" brace height right now and I will leave it there for now. I am very happy!

Watch out these things are highly addictive! You will find yourself putting the compound down all together and just shooting the recurve. I probably carried my recurve into the woods 75% of the time and my compound 25%. And I think that margine next year is going to get larger. Just take your time and practice pcartice practice. Read all you can about form and aiming styles and tuning. And I'm sure you will be more than ready come next hunting season. Good luck.

Congrats on a very nice bow. It is so fun shooting recurves. I just started myself and it is a blast.
