Picked up a recurve the other day just for the fun factor.
Never knew it would be so hard on my one good finger. I ended up with a dime sized blood blister on the pad of my ring finger, had fun though...LOL

The video doesn't work.

Thanks for the heads up, fixed it.

Nice shooting Don.

I like recurve bows, but I'm a terribly inconsistent shot and the time it would take me to get consistent, is better spent improving my form with a compound.

I do like Hungarian bows though, I have a few of them, and I'm intending to get a Japanese Yumi sometime this year.

Here's a few photos of me with my 80lb Magyr bow, shooting a suit of reproduction Roman armour for an archeology study (the armour was 45 yards away).

Thats a really cool looking bow. It's fun shooting off horseback, isn't it, I loved it.

I'd like to do more horse archery, but my boy Harry REALLY does not like bows (I'm sitting on my wife's mare in the photo).

Still, with a little time and patience...and some apples, I'm sure I could get him used to almost anything.
