Archery is the art, practice, or skill of propelling arrows (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arrow) with the use of a bow (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bow_(weapon)), from Latin arcus. Historically, archery has been used for hunting and combat, while in modern times, its main use is that of a recreational activity. A person who participates in archery is typically known as an "archer" or "bowman", and one who is fond of or an expert at archery can be referred to as a "toxophilite"

If this works I just posted a link to FS Discount Archery and a 62" three piece recurve bow that I like.
Most adult females and youths can pull around 25 pounds. Unless you are very tall and that will change your draw length. With a recurve bow the more you pull it the more the weight is added at about 3 pounds an inch. It is the same if you are shorter, then it would be minus 3 pounds an inch or so.
This is also a nice beginner bow.
Folks: Always check your eye dominance before buying a bow.
