    BH community, with this season winding down I'm thinking of picking up my first recurve in Spring 2021, to practice in the range and maybe hunt with it next season if I get good enough in one year.

    I now shoot Mathews VXR for compound, but they don't seem to offer recurves. How about Hoyt Satori? New to the recurve world, that is just the first one that I bumped into by web searching. Would I be happy with this bow as my first recurve? Any other suggestions? My budget is 1k.

    Thanks all!

    You should buy one of the cheaper 25" target risers and just start shooting that. Set up a target bow with the ILF limbs, they interchange with a lot of bows ....they shoot awesome-

    Either go with a one piece or a non ILF limb.

    Totally my 2 cents but starting on an ILF is too much tech and customization for a first bow when most people don’t even stick with it to understand how traditional bows work in the ways of tuning and shooting. Let alone hunt with them.

    i’d say that for all the people that dabbled in traditional: 80% of the go back to the compound or become the “weekend warrior” that shoots at IBO shoots and the range, but never seems to break the bow out of the case when the season comes around.

    Tred Barta said it best: “if you want to shoot traditional; put your compound on the driveway and run it over with your truck”

    The black hunter is a popular one is see around. Reminds me of the Asbell Bighorns and Predator bows.

    The only other piece of advice I can say is: get used to deer that are just too far out. If you’re just shooting whatever comes close, you’ll be fine. Trying to target a specific age class of buck can get beyond frustrating.

    Feel free to pm me if you really want to get into the details. I’m pretty busy at the moment but I’ll try to keep my eyes on my inbox
