Well I picked up me new recurve today and I really like it. I haven't had this much fun with a bow since I killed my first deer with a compound. Today is the first time i have ever shot a recurve alot...results were a stiff shoulder, sore fingers, 1 lost arrow, and alot of practice left to do.LOL I completely missed the block on the first shot but as the afternoon wore on my groups got considerably better. I was really pleased with my last few groups at about 17 yards. Here are a few pics of my new toy. It is a Jefferies Archery Classic 60. 54 lbs at my draw length and a sweet shooter.
You might want to start at 10yds, and mainly practice GOOD SHOOTING FORM. Don't worry about hitting the target. Concentrate on maintianing a good steady bow arm, consistient anchor, and a good release. These are critical for "Instinctive" shooting. Even if you gap shoot, point of aim, or any other "aiming" technique, you still need those 3 things. Good luck, and enjoy the stick n' string
