How to Shoot a Recurve Bow





Introduction: How to Shoot a Recurve Bow

Recurve bows are one of the easiest bows to shoot. They are fast and accurate. For this instructable I will teach you to shoot one correctly.

Step 1: Stance

For a good stance u will want your feet in a position so it looks like your feet are the top left and the bottom right of a square. You want your left foot forward facing towards your target. Make sure your back is strait and your legs are under your shoulders. The arm holding the bow should be strait and the arm pulling the string should be bent like in the pictures above.

Step 2: Picking Your Bow

A professional can tell u what your draw length and weight is. I recommend a long bow or a recurve.

Step 3: Pulling Your Arrow

this is the correct way to pull your arrow. if u grab the feather u will mess up the fletching.

Step 4: Done
