Default take down recurve

I was looking at getting one, there not that expensive and they look fun. I don't really bow hunt that much anymore and my long bow has a limb that is starting to warp. So any suggestions?

Why not get a starter compound bow?

I got a compound that I use to hunt with but I really like shooting old school bows better just more of a challenge. One reason I wanting one is I can just shoot any arrow fetching type with out cutting up my hand.

While I do not know much about bows I did a quick search on it and found this really sweet looking one, the Martin Jaguar Take-down Recurve Bow.

Archery, Recurve, Jaguar Take - Down Recurve Bow, By Martin at Sportsman's Guide

Anyone know about this bad boy?

I was looking at the same bow but I didn't know anything about it, never heard of these types of bow until last week and really don't know much at all about them.

YOU GAVE AWAY A BEAR BOW!! Wish I was there... I sold a Bear Tamerlane about a year ago on ebay with both limbs twisted, and a couple of cracks for over $200. I wish i still had the bow though, or could buy another one, (it was the nicest looking recurve id ever seen) But if someone is willing to pay $200+ for a "wall hanger", Id hate to see what nice ones go for.....

Im looking for a Bear Tamerlane or a Bear Temujin. Both are named after great Mongol leaders... (Temujin = Genghis Khan)
