Where can I find a recurve bow cheap? I shoot a compound, but wanted to have a recurve for when my buck tag is filled just for the challenge.

I don't know where you live, but Craigslist is often pretty helpful, especially both right after the season and right before the season.

Learn what to look for in a used bow, then check out the used racks. I bough a used Martin Dreamcatcher for around 200 bucks. I think they are around 600-700 new. Just want to make sure it's not abused.

As an aside, I say to learn what to look for only because I don't really know myself...I had an archery friend check out the Martin for me. I know you want to look for warping in the limbs and delamination, but other than the obvious I wouldn't really know how to check for these. Good luck!

I checked Craigslist, no dice. I really dont care too much about the bows condition. Obviously I want something that will shoot, but I was thinking something under $100 because of the minimul use I will get out of it.

Check out Garage sales. My dad got a recurve at a garage sale several years ago for about $50. It was in good condition and shot great, but we just never used it so we ended up selling it.

I had mine made from an Indian friend of mine. Did a great job but 50 lbs of pull on a recurve is nothing like the let off on my Hoyt. Holding that weight for a long time is rough
