This is my first attempt at mod'ing a community, be patient with me! A bit about me:

I'm also new at shooting. I bought my recurve bow last month and am slowly getting started. I'm shooting a 30# Greattree Mohigan with Easten Jazz aluminum arrows. I've already lost one arrow and I need to work on strength and form.

I'm interested in 3D shooting and am in New Zealand.

I hope this becomes a place for people to share their passion for their sport, a place for beginners like me to learn more and for experienced shooters to take pride in their accomplishments. And more importantly, a place you can share picts of your gear!

Kick back and enjoy.

Unfortunately, I don't own any gear. Archery was a hobby in HIgh School, half a lifetime ago. But it's one I have been thinking about resuming.

I always preferred a recurve to a compound, which my older cousins ridiculed for me, but they were bow hunters, and I can see the point of the extra pull there.

That sounds like a really good way to do archery. Round targets at preset distances get boring.

Hi! Sorry for being random, but this seems to be the only archery community on here so far so thought I'd check it out!

I'm also new to archery, just started through a university club last October. I haven't yet built up anything resembling upper body strength, though, so am shooting a 26# recurve :-)

This 3D shooting sounds really cool. I've only done indoor targets so far, but might have to check out something more adventurous after I move later this year!
