Shooting a recurve bow is not just taking a bow and a few arrows. If you plan to practice somewhere like a backyard, not on an archery field, then you have to buy the right target that won’t damage your arrows. Arrow targets can be purchased online or at a sports equipment store or, make your own target with 2 solid haystacks. Wrap the straw with a strong cloth to tighten it.

There are some tools that you must have when you want to use a recurve bow:
– Buy arm protectors (armguard). The arm protector is worn on the forearm holding the bow. The aim is to protect the arm when the bowstring hits him. This tool can be purchased at sports equipment stores, outdoor stores and online.
– Buy finger protectors. Finger protection is a twist from the skin that protects your fingers from the pressure of the bowstring when you pull it backward. Finger protectors are worn on the fingers which are used to pull the bowstring with the index finger above the arrow and middle finger and ring finger below the arrow. You can also touch your thumb to your little finger behind the bowstring so that your fingers do not shift.
Consider getting optional exercise equipment. Depending on the bow you are renting/buying, there is a possibility that there is additional equipment that is useful for beginners, such as sighters and clickers. The clicker is very useful for beginners because it will emit a click that tells the archer that the arrow has been pulled in the ideal pull.
When you have a recurve bow, don’t forget to take care of it so it’s durable and can still be used for a long time. Never leave your bow in the car for a long time, especially when the weather is hot because this will make your bow twist and the string on the bow become loose.
