hi, my name is doug and i have been trying to get into traditional archery. The problem is that all the places to get archery tackle in my area only carry stuff for compounds and crossbows. I have been hunting with a compound for years but i can't shoot it instinctivly, like i can borrowed traditional i shot recently. So i turned to the internet only to find so much to choose from but not a lot of info. So if anyone could tell me what draw weight is needed to harvest whitetails. If PSE recurve bows are a good start for traditional hunting. Or if there is any good literature to read to help me on my way. if anyone can help me out i would appreciate it greatly.

If you really want to get traditional and learn how a bow is made and what makes a good bow, get "The Traditional Bowyer's Bible" (vols 1-3) and a piece of red oak 1x3 from Home Depot and make your own. You'll never regret it. I don't think I could possibly shoot a store-bought bow after learning how to make my own.
