Very often I get the questions, "Should I buy a longer bow and can I hunt from a treestand with a longbow?"
The answer to both of those questions are, yes you can!
I've owned bows as short as 56" all the way up to 70" long. The longer limb bows in the same draw weight has always been smoother to draw. I have a lot of friends that prefer 64" recurves and 68" longbows for two reasons, the longer limb is smooth to draw back to anchor and they will tell you they shoot more accurate with a longer bow.
If you're thinking about buying your first longbow or recurve, do not rule out a longer bow, maybe 62" or longer recurve and 66" or longer for a recurve.
