When I first started there were no sights, no releases, just a recurve with a brush rest and fingers. I used to shoot almost every day in my yard, even to the point of coming home to shoot during my lunch. With a recurve and instinctive shooting it is a must to shoot often to keep your "eye". With a 65lb recurve, I used the two finger under the arrow draw. I believe it was called the Apache draw. Those were much fun, and simpler times. Lost, but not forgotten. I remember the introduction of the first compound bow, I disliked it and tried to discredit it for many years, but here we are, what progress, (good or bad). All I know for sure is that for years I had the woods mostly to myself.
