If I were to narrow down the main reason people shoot poorly with traditional equipment, I would say, without a doubt, it is shooting too heavy of a bow. That’s it—most misses explained in a nutshell.
I attribute people shooting too heavy of a bow to misinformation and peer pressure. For example, I have had many people tell me I couldn’t shoot elk with a 40 lb. recurve, or worse yet, I have heard hunters tell others it is unethical to use a light bow. That is just ridiculous. For good reason, most states have a minimum draw weight ranging from 35 to 40 lbs., while some states have no minimum at all.
