We are back to the topic of hunting for woman here at AK4711. Many woman love to hunt but unfortunately this sport and hobby is looked at to be mainly for men. Many woman love to hunt or are interested in getting started. So I am writing this guide to help pick out the best recurve bow for woman hunters.

The right bow makes all the difference when hunting. With the right bow you can shoot from far distance while still shooting your target at a great speed and with accurate aim. So as a hunter, and more specifically a woman hunter, what is important when looking for a recurve bow?

You want to find the bow with the correct draw weight for your weight. Most woman need a lower draw weight than men since we tend to weigh less ourselves and not be quite as strong. The draw weight refers to how much power it requires to pull back the draw string and shoot the bow. The average draw weight for woman is somewhere between 25 pounds and 65 pounds depending on the woman’s strength and weight. It is important to get a bow that is not too difficult to shoot so you can have proper form and accurate aim when shooting.

The next thing to figure out is what height bow will work best for you. Just as important as it is to have a bow you can shoot and carry around all day you need a bow that fits you. If your bow is too big it is going to be difficult to carry and maneuver while hunting. To find the correct bow height you should measure your arm span from fingertip to fingertip and divide that number by 2.5. This number is the length your bow should be.

Other things you will need to look into are a right handed or left handed grip, what shape riser you prefer and the best limb quality. Although it tends to go with what hand you write with, it is helpful to try a few practice shots with bows or at least hold them to feel which side grip you prefer.

The riser is the shape of the bow. There are three main type of risers for recurve bows: deflex, reflex and straight. Relfex shaped bows are preferred for outdoor shooting and hunting because they are generally the fastest. Deflex shaped bows are also fast, but larger, making them more ideal for indoor target practice. Straight bows are mix of the two and are most popular because they work well with both indoor and outdoor shooting.

The market for recurve bows has grown immensely in the past few years and the quality of bows has increased as well. Odds are almost any bow that you are looking into buying will be a great choice but with the tips included in this article and more on how to buy bows for beginners, you are sure to make the right choice. Happy hunting ladies!
