I tried out archery today.
OMG I am in love.
So I want to organise a set for myself for xmas (and maybe a youth set for the kids)
So I have questions for those of you that do it...
What's the difference between a long bow and a recurve bow?
What does it mean by 'draw length'?
Can I just get a cheaper bow to start with, or does accuracy really suffer and I should buy a better one?
Recommend me a good bow

Not to worry...
I'm just so super excited.. I've never taken to a sport/hobby so quickly before. It's so much fun.
A definite recommend if one hasn't tried it.

I've been using a bow for years and my advice is: ask around your nearest club, however a good but not way expensive re-curve bow is best to start with and learn to shoot as the bowmen and bow-women of yore did; learn without sights.
A long bow is the most difficult to master and draw length, of any bow, is the optimum amount of bend or draw of the string for the bow and is closely allied to the best length of arrow.
Bows are excellent for hunting and even light bows are suitable for taking rabbits and hares; nothing better than some fresh meat that you've killed and cleaned yourself. My family all hunt and venison is part of our usual menu but the deer get taken with a suitable rifle.
