Left Hand Right?

1609 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  Finnegan
I just inherited an old left handed recurve. I'm a right handed shooter and can't switch because I'm blind in the left eye. This bow has sentimental value and I'd like to shoot it rather than just stick it in the closet, so I'm questioning a basic concept. Here's the question - is there any technical or practical reason why a right handed shooter can't shoot a left handed bow?

Now I know why I struggle to get tight groups, I shoot with bith eyes closed. :oops:

In truth, one should shoot with both eyes open when shooting a compound as well. Same with rifles and shotguns and pistols.
