Just a word of advice.

Price or notoriety does not make or ensure a good bow for you. It's all about what fits YOU, not who makes a "better" bow.

Shoot as many differnet ones as you can and then pick.

There will be several at the bayouBucks shoot this Saturday. Come by and shoot some.

Best advice you'll get right there from Fred. Shoot as many as you can and when you have the right one in your hands you'll know! Good Luck!

I 3rd this advice.

Watch out for the instinct to buy a brand solely because it is the

" popular " brand . It may be good for you, but may not.

U see two guys have already brought the black widow bows...and I see it brought up a lot on the site...if a lot of people shoot and like a certain bow it atleast gives me a basis to start from...I don't of any place around here that deals recurve bows..where do I have to go to find a selection of them to shoot?

At a 3d shoot.


Where are U ? You can shoot mine. My new Take-Down will be in , in a couple weeks.

I shoot Timberhawk Bows of Bloomington, IN. I'm no veteran with years under my belt, but I'm coming along just fine.
