Hello, I am from Massachusetts and work at a local archery pro shop so I’ll givw my 2 cents. Shooting wise, smart decision starting recurve as it is the hardest. Whether your shooting recurve or compound make sure you are consistent with your anchor point as that will keep you honest. Visit a local pro shop, not your local hunting, fishing and camping store(you know who I’m talking about), the big name companies. If you visit a reputable archery shop you will most likely be fitted to a bow once you decide to buy one if you haven’t already. Watch lots of educational YouTube videos, steer away from hunting shows. Keep shooting and like I said be consistent with your anchor point, don’t punch the trigger. I bear hunt up in allahash, lot of guys up there will fill you in If you get the chance to talk to one.

Watch as many YouTube videos as possible on archery. Practice proper form over everything else.
