John, I see you use a recurve. I know its off topic for this thread, but I've been interested in getting into recurves and the more traditional approach and have some questions, so I'll make a quick list and if you can email me your answers/advice that would be great.
1) what model do you use, bow length, draw weight?
2) due to tip-to-tip length can you hunt from the ground in a sitting position, like on a stool-type seat?
3) any treestand issues, ie tip-to-tip length causing restrictions, or any other concerns?
If there are any other issues you've encountered along the way that aren't related to my other questions, I welcome you sharing them along with other advice that I may not have considered.
