Well Saturday is my first time hunting with the recurve. I decided on taking out the super kodiak. I am good out to 15 yards. I am as I have said an old compound shooter and hard on myself when it comes to grouping arrows so I am sure of the shot at 15 or less. I am pumped Wish me luck. That turdy point buck don't have a chance The super kodiak is only a 50lb model and it is getting me strengthened up for a little more poundage latter on. I want to stay comfortable for accuracy. I am sure it will slide an arrow through a deer.
