I am pretty new to trad and I have been shooting compounds sense I was little and want more of a challenge so decided to sell the compound and get a recurve.

I ordered a Hoyt buffalo 50 lb limbs 62 in bow

I need help selecting arrows and what spine I should go with
When shooting a compound my dl is 28.5

I am all ears to any suggestions you guys have for me and tips to get me started

Noob Trad Archer Journey – Entry 1 – First Shoot Ever

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Hey all,

Not even sure how I buried my first thread in the subforum where nobody looks much, but it’s all good, I got excellent advice nonetheless.

I’m a new archer with no coaching and very little experience (shot compound bows two or three times over 15 years, also with no coaching besides 5-minute breakdown of range rules/tips). I did a ton of research online, including this forum, before jumping in, and I went to every local shop within 40km of my house. I also bought Anthony Camera’s "Shooting the Stickbow" and it’s been my nighttime reading for a few weeks. But reading and fantasizing just wasn’t enough. I knew diving into the sport without coaching wasn’t a great idea, but coached archery classes are booked up to September/October where I live, and I wanted archery RIGHT NOW (complete with toddler tantrums).

72 hours after I placed my order, a wonderful package arrived in the mail. I then did NOT proceed to take any pictures, because I was too excited. Then it rained, and I got called into work whenever it did not rain, or I did not have transportation out into rural areas, and days turned into weeks while my little Samick Sage sat in a corner, begging to be used. I could go on at length with this, but forget that, let’s just skip ahead to the good stuff. Eventually the weather cleared up and schedules lined up and I had a brief opportunity to go shooting.

I double checked all my gear, made sure I had the essentials, riser, limbs, bowstring, and then we were there. Then DISASTER struck! I lost my bowstring. I’m still kicking myself about it. I did not get to shoot my bow. 🙁

My friend accompanying me bought the exact same bow, however, only right-handed (I shoot left, or rather I’d like to). I’m glad I went with a lower poundage bow, and I’m glad there’s nothing terribly wrong with my right arm, shoulders, and back muscles, because it turns out using the right-handed bow wasn’t so bad. Okay, I’m fibbing, it felt very awkward to me, but I managed.


Oh hi, this is me by the way. Let’s get to the nitty-gritty. Critique me!

My thoughts: I think my lower body twisted a bit somehow. Woops. I’ve drawn my bow a few times without the glove, and this was my first time with the glove on, so finding an anchor was difficult. Also, I’m not even sure this picture was taken right before the shot, I forgot to ask my friend, but it was the closest to.

Other excuses: On the drive down I found out my father had been hospitalized, and I had injured my right knee in a jog the day before, and the place was swarming with hungry mosquitoes (and guess what kind of spray we forgot). I’m just terrible at this. But really, I wound up in a pretty bad mental place, held just barely at bay by the fact that I was finally (almost, kinda) shooting my recurve bow (but you know, reversed).

Well, that’s the best I managed, out of 24 total shots (6 per round). We had to get out of there because the bugs got too bad.

I’m regretting not making a vague X target out of some duct tape, because now that I think of it, I had nothing to aim for. My goal was "don’t get arrows lost in those woods back there." Mission accomplished, I suppose.

The one neat thing I noticed was that, the far left deviant arrow in the last photo was the one shot where I had my arm is bad position and the bowstring gave it a good burn.

I don’t feel that bad though, because I burned myself a dozen times or more with my compound shooting experiences. Maybe the late night reading IS slowly sinking in.

Looking forward to Entry 2, and hopefully sharing it with you fine folks so I can become a real archer (right now I’m still a fake one).

P.S. For a 62" Samick Sage at 30lb, what replacement bowstrings should I go with? Ideally I would like to order off Amazon.ca, which means this directory of bowstrings.

Any one know what the limb construction on it will be yet? If they were some of their better older limbs it would be quite a buy.

Advised on shaving down sight window of trad recurve

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

I have an old low draw weight (30#) recurve that has a very thick riser section thru the sight window forcing the center shot WAY off to the left. I spoke with bowyer Tom Jeffrey in Columbia SC about it and he suggested "hitting it with a rasp" to thin down the sight window, advising me that many bows like this were over built and made for shooters canting the bow, so centershot was less of an issue. I compared the bow with a couple newer and heavier recurves and it is at least 1/4" thicker than these other two. I plan to shoot it off a Hoyt Super rest BTW, so contour of shelf less of an issue.
Any suggestions for the best tool to use to slowly take off the extra wood and how to best refinish it after completion. In the end, I am more concerned with how it shoots than how it looks, but don’t want to do a crappy job either.
Thanks in advance

My 1st hog with trad gear!

Discount Prices on Archery Supplies Right Here

Actually 1st of anything with trad gear! I have shot my training wheels for 3 decades and finally took the trad road in Jan. With help from Rod Jenkins, Moebow (Arne Moe), and Ranger B (Jimmy Blackmon) I worked on my form and on BB and targets. Here is the result of what I hope will be many successful outings with a stick and string.

Many thanks to Matt and Cheryl at the Shiloh Bowhunting Ranch in Stonewall, OK. I had a blast!
