The only "contemporary" recurve I've ever shot is a Fred Bear and it was lots of fun. I've picked up a couple "antique" recurves on ebay for about half the price of a new one. Just have to be careful what I buy and ask lots of questions before making a bid. So far I've had good luck with a Shakespeare and a Ben Pierson. I shoot them all the time with no problems.
I previously owned a Martin Howatt Hunter recurve bow, which I found to be a very nice shooting bow. It had the advantage of being able to purchase additional limb sets to change the draw weight of the bow. Cabela's, among others carries this bow.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
