The longbow has been around since medieval times. It is generally as tall as the archer. The longbow is made of a single piece of wood and has no sites, arrow rests or other pieces attached to the bow. Your aim is totally in your hands and your release of the arrow must happen shortly after you aim for your target. Your skill and practice create your perfection at hitting the target.

Recurve Bows

Recurve is the most popular bow for beginners. It gets its name from its shape which is curved toward your body in the middle and curves away from your body at both ends. The shape of the recurve stores more energy for each release of an arrow than that of the longbow. The recurve is made up of three pieces; the handle (riser) and two limbs that are slotted or screwed into the riser.


Crossbows are often used to hunt game animals. This bow is shorter, but heavier than traditional bows. The crossbow allows the hunter to cock the arrow for long periods of time without exerting much effort. This gives the archer time to perfect their aim before releasing the arrow. The draw force of the crossbow is much higher than any other bow. The drawbacks to the crossbow are its heaviness and it's a bit more awkward to use than traditional bows.

Compound Bows

The compound bow was introduced in the 1970's in the archery scene. It is very popular with archers because of its strength of draw and its accuracy in hitting the target. It is designed with pulleys and cables to give them leverage to make the straight, stiff limbs bend. Compounds require less strength to draw compared to the basic recurve bow. Strength, speed and accuracy are the popular features of the compound bow.

Men and women are different archers because of their strength and body design. Women can generally draw 30 pounds and men can draw 50 pounds. Female arms are designed to curve in towards the bow. Women need to be conscious of this and compensate when drawing or risk injuring their arm when releasing the arrow.
