hoyt buffalo recurve – loud

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Hi everyone, just received a used 55# Buffalo. I strung it up and took it out for a test drive. I should also say it came with the hoyt quiver.

I normally shoot a 52# Quinn Archery recurve.

Issue is that the hoyt is really loud. I tightend the quiver, it came with beaver balls and stick on limb silencers, it has standard issued grove felt.

guess i want to ask other buffalo shooters if the sound is normal. Maybe i am just spoiled with my Quinn, this is the first bow I have shot in 7 years that was not my quinn, so no idea what is normal.

Thanks for the help!!

Competition Recurve – No Idea Where to Start

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Hi folks,

I’m interested in purchasing a recurve bow to compete in local traditional leagues and tournaments. I really like Hoyt bows, but don’t know where to start. There are so many options!

Right now I shoot a 35# @ 28" root pendulus from the 60s. It’s fine, but I need something with a little more meat to step up against the big boys.

Any clues where I should start? Any recommendations?

Thanks in advance!

Looking for my first recurve (any help appreciated)

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

First off, I am new to AT and new to archery. I have always been interested in archery since I was little, I remember shooting a bow when I was younger at my brothers Boy Scout camp and having a great time, then the years passed and now I am in college and finally was just this last semester, able to get into an archery p.e. class (I’m loving it just as much, if not more then when i was younger). The semester is going to be ending in two weeks, and therefore my ability to practice will be too so I am looking at getting my own bow. I know that the bow I shoot with at school is a solid piece of wood, recurve, 62" with a 23lb draw. My teacher picks out the bows for us individually so I am assuming she thought this was the best choice. I don’t know what information would be needed to correctly determine what bow would be best for someone so I will list the information I think might be necessary and hopefully someone can fill me in on what would be best.

I will only be using this bow for shooting targets. I am a woman, right handed, 20 years old, 5’8, and I weigh 140lb. The 23lb I shoot with currently, feels good although it is on the lighter end so I would probably go for a 30lb draw. I work at Scottish Games and would most likely be bringing my bow with me to these games as part of my outfit (these games aren’t Ren Fairs but traditional Scottish attire is worn) so I would like for the bow to look more traditional (the less high tech gadgety stuff the better) but since I don’t do reenactment it would not need to be historically accurate. I would prefer it to not have a company name plastered all over it if at all possible though. Also, Im not sure if this would help but my teacher told us when choosing the arrows we were going to be shooting with, to take the arrow and put the tip of it to your chest and reach your arms outwards as if you were trying to touch the veins on the arrow, she said if your fingertips are close to touching the veins then that is length of arrow you will be shooting with, if your fingers go past the veins then the arrows are too short. I apparently have longer arms and wound up using the longer arrows that were available. (I know this is vague but Im trying to think of anything I can that might help). My price cap for this would be about $ 200 (which I know will narrow down my choices but I don’t see a point in spending more money on this when I am this new to archery). Also I am looking to buy my bow online because there is only one local shop that carries archery equipment but the staff there are only helpful if you are a man and a hunter or if you are there to spend a large amount of money on their fancy compound bows.

That’s all the info I can think of, any help would be greatly appreciated and let me know if there is any other info I can provide to help me narrow down my options.

Recurve accuracy question…

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

I have been shooting a compound bow for several years and have always been intrigued by traditional archery. I pick up and old Bear Kodiak Hunter last year and have been playing with it ever since. I am still not very accurate with the bow. I sometime practice a lot, but still can only consistently hit a deer target vitals out to 10 or 12 yds. Past that consistency is poor.

I guess my question here is, what kind of accuracy should I be expecting from a recurve? I’d like to be consistent enough out to 20 yds to kill a deer.

Another deer with my recurve

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies on Amazon.com

Had some issues with my longbow limbs on my Delta riser, so I slapped the recurve limbs on and have been hunting with them the past couple weeks since I was too busy with orders to build myself a new set. Last Friday, I got a shot on a fat doe, but when I came to draw I froze up just like I had during IBO, unable to acutally aim into the vitals. It was awful. The next day I went to targets hard, and after re-tuning my bow with a set of 175 gr Tiger Sharks, I went hunting. Monday was the first night in stand, and I managed to bag my first two squirrels of the season. Last night, this young one came by at at 10 yards, and with only a week or so left of season I decided to put some much, much needed meat in the freezer. I started to have the tp freezing, but focused on the spot and my shot sequence. Hit him tight to the shoulder, but had short drawn pretty badly when the tp hit so no pass through. The Tiger Shark went through both lungs and poked out the far leg, which should be a testament more to it’s penetrating capabilities and forgiveness than to my shooting. The deer ducked under a fallen log breaking the arrow but made it only 12 steps before falling over for good. It only took maybe two seconds from when I shot to when it expired, for which I am incredibly grateful.

Friday was the first time I had TP issues when presented with a shot on an animal, and it was one of the worst feelings I’d ever had. Putting this one down so quickly however was truly a blessing. May not be a trophy to a lot of people, but I felt like I was walking on clouds.
