Recurve bows, while not as powerful as compound bows, do offer several advantages. Traditional bows tend to be much lighter than modern bows, a nice benefit during long treks through the woods. And because of their simple design, there is no need for tuning. Despite their slower shooting speeds compared to compounds, most recurves are capable of taking down bucks and other popular game. A draw weight of at least 40 pounds is typically recommended for hunting deer, and some hunters prefer at least 45 pounds.
