There's a big traditional IBO shoot here in Indiana at the end of the month and I'm planning on getting a traditional bow. However, I've been looking high and low but can't find answers to my questions. So I'll ask here specifically. My plans for the bow: - Learn to shoot traditional. I will not be using a sight, instinct only - Possibly hunt and 3D shoot with eventually, might be at least a year, if not longer - Will be taking a lot of shots with it. I like to shoot almost every day My questions: 1. Recurve or long bow? Yup, basic question but still unsure. I really like the option to take down a 3 piece recurve though. 2. Length? I'm 5'8" and have a 28" draw length I'll probably try a few different ones from 35# to 45# to see what draw weight I want to go with.
