    WTB Recurve or longbow

    I am looking for a good second hand bow right hand of #55.
    Who has something they want to sell.

    Have you shot recurve or longbow before? that's a high poundage to start with if you haven't.
    The Mrs is shooting a 50lb compound now but pulled my "new to me" recurve back the other day and handed it back as too much like hard work. And she ain't no weakling.
    I have the tendency to wear my mind on my sleeve

    I have not shot a traditional bow for a long time but have hunted with a 68lb compound for the last 17
    years.
    I feel it's time to get into a more traditional set up.

    Hiya Rooster,

    If your interested Im moving out of archery as I just have to many hobbies going on at the same time. I only have one set of hands and 18 things that need doing with them lol. Plus my youngest son is starting to manage more on the hills so I want to get him out shooting as much as possible.

    As such, im selling my hybrid 50lb longbow and all the accessories to go with it. Well over $1250 worth of kit. feel free to check it out on trade me or you can message me on here. As far as I know this is the only cottonmouth in NZ at this time. The bow itself is only three months old and has only been fired about 200 times.

    I have taken geese, goats and pigs with this bow without any issues and all had complete pass throughs. It will easily do any animal in NZ and then some.
    Regards,

    Johnny
