I dumped the wheels about 8 years ago and never looked back. It's 10 times easier for me to bow kill deer with my recurve than it ever was with a compound. I believe it's because I don't have to worry about lining up sights and such. Welcome to traditional bow hunting. Hope you love it!

I went cheap for a starter bow and got the samick sage 45# but so far I don't see anything wrong with it.

Samick is a good rig I see several of them on the 3d range every shoot and have 3 or 4 in the youth bow set up and they have held up just fine.
if you stick with it long enough you might get interested in other types of bows like long bows or self bows but what you have is the best type to learn on.
focus on your form for now and get the basics down it will make every thing much easer later on.

I think that's like being a little bit pregnant StalkingWolf but a good start down the right road.

something about walking to the stand in the morning with a bow as light as my fly rod

Find a copy of Masters Of The Bare Bow, volume one will give you plenty of how to info for a good start, for a beginner its a super good DVD because it shows sevral different ways to shoot traditional bows, offers mountains of good tips for hunt'n, bow set up, equipment & has some of the biggest names in the biz teach'n you what they know, well worth the money.

And welcome to the tribe, once you get the hang of it your hunt'n life will be changed forever.

(DISCLAIMER: even tho I've gotten somewhat back into my compound this season, I still want to hunt with my recurve, its like leave'n you dog at home & know'n he wants to go also.)

I started out the same way. Then I realized how much weight I was toting I went ahead and fully committed.

When you put your hand around a recurve or long bow its like a good piece of leather, it just feels right

Wait until you get your first deer with a traditional bow. You won't look at bow hunting the same ever again.

You ever kill a deer with one you'll be addicted. I took my first deer with a recurve last year, not huge but a trophy nonetheless in my eyes.

it's actually cheaper to do than a compound. you can get a good used bow, arrows and few other items cheaper than a compound bow itself costs. and you don't have to upgrade every year. \:D

Keep an eye on craigs list, do a search for recurve & thers sevral that pull up, most can be had for cheap.

I noticed 3 rivers archery has a samick sage . With all the accessary for $200ish . From what I have read its s good starter bow . I might go that route . I was thinking of ordering it with the 30 to 35 pound limbs to start out . The upgrade to the 45 to 50 limbs if I decide I could kill a deer with it . Any other suggestions ???

I have not put my hands on a Samick bow that I recall but like you I have read some good things about them. I've also read where they preform well enough that you may not need to 'upgrade' to a more expensive bow for hunting reasons.
unless you just want 35# limbs just to have, you may be comfortable with the 45/50 limbs from the beginning. most folks overbow themselves by starting at their compound weights. I did that.
you might check this one.
