Tim Clum is outstanding. Skip the books and take some of his online classes.

Shooting The Stick Bow is by far the best book I have found in my 60 plus years of shooting.

That's what I settled on after 50 years of archery, mine is a TradTech ILF 19" riser with TradTech Black Max 2.0 Carbon/Wood limbs.

yep. Zen and the Art of Archery is a good beginner book too

I have 8 recurves, most fixed limb, but prefer versatility of removable limbs. Start around 25 to 30 lbs to get your form down.

Id just get a samick ( made in Korea) recurve with low poundage to start out . Taught many scouts in BSA to shoot on this bow

"Hunting the Hard Way" by Howard Hill is a great read. It was published in 1941 but is again available as a reprint with the original illustrations. Hill used longbows with 100# draw and killed bison from horseback at full gallop. And shot squirrels out of trees.

Used to be called the Samick Journey, but now it is more refined. Easy decision. Get one, and don't look back. You do not have to apologize to anyone if you get one. Truly an outstanding bow, especially for the price.

I have one ( actually Samick Journey and Spyder XL), and it/ they shoot as well -or better than $600+++ bows. I have done well with it, and high!y recommend it.


I'll give a thumbs-up for the Spyder XL. I picked one up a few months ago, great shooting bow.

I started shooting the traditional bows almost three years ago. I have accumulated a few bows now, including a Toelke, Discovery, Satori, a few others.

The Spyder is my lowest price bow, and it shoots as good as any of them.

A short clip shooting the Spyder XL,

I tried all of those. Rick Welch is who I tried to emulate when I was still bowhunting. He is an amazing shooter.
The.main thing is to settle on a style of shooting and practice it every chance you get. I shot a few arrows several timss a day year around when I was bowhunting.

Buddy stopped by today.
Dropped off his old Hoyt Excel 21" riser and 32# Samick carbons.
Itll be less than my new Blackwidow so see if my still screwed up shoulder/ arm can handle it.
Makes for a 64" bow
Needs a new string.
Ill proly not go too skinny as fatter is nicer on my fingers. 15 strand most likely and maybe D97 Flemish.

I know a place that makes em LOL

Think in it they explain stalking in standing corn.
If so that was big time news back then.

I have Asbell's but not a fan. Prefer Byron Ferguson's book.

As stated above, good videos available too.

That's the ticket. People were shooting bows 35,000 years before they were reading.

I've been in the trad game for about 30 years. The PUSH, clum, snyder, Kaminski are where I would start.

Best easy money is masters of the barebow volume 3. Its a dvd that does a great job of shot dissection and mirrors clum for the most part.

one of the best recurve brand bows is Black Widow ,Black Widow also makes nice long bows too .Black Widow BOWS are custom American made bows . Black Widow bows are not cheap but an excellent custom traditional bow. my son has 3 Black Widow bows - 2 recurves and 1 long bow has done well using them .
