Well to start off in Oregon we have a unit hunt that is for traditional bow only (Trout Creeks) there are some monster Mule deer in that unit and the draw is pretty much %100 so was kinda planning on buying a recurve or longbow and giving it a try next year or the year after if I'm feeling confident enough. So my questions are how do you go about picking one out? With my compounds I shoot #70 and a 29" draw length I know #70 with no let off is probably not gona work we have to use at least #40 on deer here but I was thinking somewhere in the #50 to #60 range. What is the difference or advantage between a recurve and longbow. I don't know of a bow shop around here that carries traditional bows so can't really ask them for assistance.
