I've been shooting and hunting with a compound for a long time, but am looking into getting back into the recurve game for small game, and getting some flu flu's out for ducks etc. and just spicing things up. But there are some likely basic things that I have questions about.
So in a nutshelf here are some things that I need cleared up:
Most recurves seem to be established for a certain poundage at 28 inches, however I have rather long arms and my draw is just about 30. Will these bows still shoot alright? (I presume some increase from the published weight but what else happens?)
Also, there are lots o bows out there, however I am drawn to take down models for convenience and multiple weight possibilities. Currently I am looking at a Samick Sage model in 62" at 40# with thoughts of going up to 50 or 55# if I get a hankering to chase moose with it instead of the compound. Any one got pros or cons of these, and if so, suggestions of another good starter/intermediate set up. (They seem to get good reviews and the price is right...$130).
This one may cause some eye rolls but, is there a sighting process when you shoot instinctive...or is it simply...instinctive? Is it akin to wingshooting or is that a poor analogy? I have the cross dominant issue mentioned in a recent thread but as the article noted, it may be to less of a degree than some as I can wingshoot ok righthanded, but am left eye dominant.
Last one, I shoot my compound with fingers, and usually anchor at the corner of my mouth at full draw, can I expect with the stated 30" draw to be able to fully anchor there with a recurve? Or do those of you who shoot both end up anchoring differently?
Thanks in advance.
