Hunting first, when not hunting then 3D animal targets to stay sharp for hunting. Oh yea can't forget stump shooting either.

So what long bow are you getting?

Eat safe
Out for now

Because of the way they're supposed to be made, there might not be any such thing as a good quality, cheap English longbow. The process is very labor intensive and hence not cheap.

You can get laminated flatbows for considerably less that will most likely outperform a tradition English longbow but of course they won't be traditional English longbows.

Good luck with your new long bow.
I build and shoot various styles of osage bows... am building a D bow that bends from tip to tip, cherokee hunting bow, I have three osage flat bows, and one Pecan flat bow,
I do know you want your arrows 10-15# lighter then poundage of bow if it is NOT Center shot..like recurves and compounds..
Dont get discouraged.... practice at close range 7 to 10 yards. then move back as you improve. you almost have to shoot a longbow,recurve year round to stay accurate...
I shoot 3 d all spring and summer then hunt all winter.. we have 100 days of archery season here in Oklahoma..
good luck
