    Iv hunted the past few years aand wanted to start bow hunting i have a fred bear Kodiack Mag in 55 pounds recurve do you think I should upgrade to a compound?

    Depends on how well you shoot it and how good a hunter you are. A compound will increase you range a bit.

          If your'e not proficirnt with the recurve get a good quality compound for hunting, but keep the recurve for fun/targets, etc! kolbster's right about the draw weight, 60-70 is good.
          Lots of Native American took down a lot of deer with homemade recurves though.

                The recurve is great for bowfishing but if you really want to succed with deer and turkeys get a 60-70 lb compound with 80% let off. Use quality arrows and broadheads.

                  I would keep the recurve to use when you become better and more used to bowhunting. I would definately get a compound. They are easier to shoot and starting with a compound will get you used to bowhunting and getting close to the deer.

                    If you shoot the recurve proficiently why bother?

                      I would personally get a compound, but recurves work great. If you can shoot out to 30 yards there is not really any point in changing.

                        Compound because of let off.

                          If you are going to get serious about bow hunting, then i think you should upgrade to a compound

                            I learned on that very same recurve its a solid bow keep practicing with that beauty and you will be the envy of your compond buddies if you can master that bow a compound will feel like a walk in the park.

                                Body cam footage shows Floyd wasn't murdered. The cop kneeling on his neck might have been negligent, but his actions did not kill Floyd.
