We will be starting our homestead on the property hopefully next spring. As part of this I am looking into learning to hunt to provide food for my family. I would like to get into bow hunting but have no idea where to start. I have little to no hunting experience but am committed to learning this skill. I have thought about getting a rifle for hunting but something about the bow just appeals to me more. (I will probably still get a .22 rim fire rifle for general use around the homestead though).
Anyway any suggestion on where to get started and how to get smart on bow hunting would be appreciated.
1. What kind of gear do I need?
2. Do I need a compound bow or can I hunt with a recurve? (Primarily white tail deer hunting, turkey hunting, and maybe some smaller game)
Thank you for your advice and thoughts.
