Default Starter Trad Bow..

Hey guys and gals.. Quick question if I may. I have not shot instictively in 30 years but I sure shoot everything else.
In a nut shell I want a low end bow that can kill a deer at 20 yards. Pretty sure I want a recurve not a long bow.
What wouldyou recommend a financially constrained soul who just wants to give it a shot.Thanks.

Start off with a 45#, there not to heavy of draw weight but can kill a Deer at 20 yards. don't start off with a big Recurve but a 60" one. Check or, they have good bows.

If you're looking for a new custom, take a look at Chek-Mate, they can be had for under $300 (below isa pic of mine). I'd suggest getting to a traditional shoot and try a few bows out. Most of the bigger shoots will have a used bow tent. I'd suggest not going too short on the overall length. I'd stay in the neighborhood of 64" for a recurve and 66-70" for a longbow. Anywhere in the 40-49 pound at your draw area should be about right. Below the Chek-Mate (64", 54#'s at 29"), is a Brackenbury 3 piece which I got off the classified adds on tradgang for about $275 (68", 61#'s at 28"):

The stallion recurve by quinn archery gets my vote.If you are not bothered by a metal riser.Less than #300 new and you can find em used for closer to $200.I have shot a lot of the high end customs and this bow holds it own with any of them.
