Recurve advise

Postby paulie » Sun Feb 08, 2009 12:06 pm

I recently (within the last year or so) started shooting a recurve. Since I am "self taught" (that is to say, I've had no coaching or training), I'm sure my form is far from perfect! I've looked into some of the "instructional" books out there but, I'm not sure which one (one's) to buy, or to stay away from!  I'm looking for something to show me the basics (proper form,  how to aim, equiptment do's and dont's, etc). I figure, the longer I shoot "improperly", the harder it's gonna be to correct any "bad habits" I may be forming!  Any advise would be greatly appreciated!!

Thanks: Paul

I think Woods Walker shoots a recurve.  Be sure to PM him if he happens not to see this thread.

And then you can ask me any questions that aren't answered there. I really do recommend the Asbel book.
