Had to give up the trad bows about 15 years ago because of shoulder problems. I retired this year and decided to see if my shoulders would take archery since I'm not working every day and keeping the shoulder inflamed. (bone spurs digging into tendons)
Starting slow & easy with 12 shots, then adding one shot a day to work up slowly. Using my old Chek-Mate 49# recurve, but at my draw length it's about 52#.
Day 3 today and 14 arrows with no pain!

That is great wabi, I had a 42# little browning bow that shot exactly where I looked. Shot a nice doe right in the boiler room and had a complete pass-thru. Razor sharp broadheads are key and hitting the right spot.

I recently purchased a 1966 Bear Grizzly that is 48# -really looking forward to slinging a few.

I have been a traditional bow hunter for many years. I have found that most of my friends who are traditional bowhunters are also fly fishermen. There is something about the aesthetic of both that go together. Send me a PM if you want some help getting going untraditional archery. I would be happy to help.
