I am new to traditional archery. I have been shooting archery for about 10 years and am 20 years old. I have only bow hunted for 4 years with a coumpound.

Recently I have acquired my dad's old black bear recurve 60" AMO 45# at 28". I am a bigger guy with a draw length of 31.5". I have some easton st epic carbon 340 arrows that i fletched with 4 inch feathers. I am shooting off the shelf with some bear hair i put on.

Am I off to a good start? what else should i look into getting to move on? i need a new string, would a dacron string at cabelas work? also i am shooting a 100 grain thunderhead broadhead. Is that ok or should i move to a lower profile broadhead or mechanical like i've been told with my compound?
