Compound vs Recurve Bows

Compound bows are bows that use a pully system to reduce the holding weight and require you to use a mechanical release aid when shooting. The compound bows are also equipped with sights to aid with aiming.

Recurve Bows are more traditional, more or less a stick and string with minimal equipment and require an instinctual aiming style.

Which Lesson is Easier to Learn?

Compound archery is typically easier due to having more mechanical parts to aid in your accuracy. Although both forms of archery have their respective difficulties. But regardless of which you choose we will teach the fundamentals of each to help you progress.

Why Don't You Book on Saturdays?

We do not book on Saturdays because typically Saturday is our busiest day of the week and its hard to dedicate one staff member for up to an hour to do a single lesson.
