Love hunting with a longbow. This is my largest doe. Bow was an ACS 64” [email protected]”. Good Luck hunting!
Mine is technically a flat bow. Not a recurve but not a true round profile longbowI am not sure if I've ever seen a long bow in person. I am thinking of medieval archers probably, but aren't they like 6 feet long?
I get 180fps with my 40lb longbow.Illinois requires a 35 pound minimum for deer. I have a 45 but haven't hunted with it yet. I'll be 68 on my next birthday and I'm afraid of tearing up a shoulder. Trying to decide now between getting a crossbow, or a 35 pound recurve and limiting my self to up-close shots. Most of my kills have been very close.
My 120 pound, which was made in England, was a shade over 72 inches. My 150 pound, made in Holland, was 74 inches. (I happen to be 77 inches, so the length was good for me.) I wish I could say they were Yew, but they were laminates.I am not sure if I've ever seen a long bow in person. I am thinking of medieval archers probably, but aren't they like 6 feet long?
