I tried for about 5 minutes to shoot fish with a recurve. DEFINITELY wasn't for me.

Yup recurve and longbow. Shoot both and build both also. Also build my own arrows and strings for them. My son also builds and also build arm guards and quivers and turkey calls.

I also like to shoot everything. I sold 5 recurves last summer, they are now too heavy. selling one more this weekend at a trad shoot in Wisconsin, but its my last recurve. Presently shooting a Black Hunter long bow, 41lb at 28 and cost me 200.00 new, and out shoots a lot of more expensive stuff........ I put on a custom string....... I also found the xx75 1916's
to shoot great out of, with 4 inch fletch, 3 fletch

I just shoot the long bow better..................... I get a lot grief, from my trad friends, because I also like my crossbow, but I do not care, if it throws an arrow, I like it..... ha ha

I shot recurves and longbows and made some nice longbows, takedown and one piece. Moon on here was really into it too. I shot compounds also, just depended on how I felt that year. Came down with a rare nerve disease around 2005 or so that slowly took the strength in my arms and legs and didn't do anything for a long time untill after retirement when I decided to get a crossbow.
