I've been shooting a good bit with my 40 lb. recurve for quite sometime now and I thought about bringing out an old kiddie recurve that I've used indoors just for fun shooting. Enter the 18lb takedown recurve bow from Arrow Precision Outdoors. It's so lightweight that I pretty much look at it like a toy.

If you're not familiar with WD40, that's ok because a lot of folks neglect to keep their kit in top shape when they get caught up with the rigors of more pressing concerns when situated in long term survival situations or when they're having so much fun in the outdoors.
When I go camping or trekking I always make sure I have a good carbon steel based field knife, a small neck knife, either a camp axe or a strong heavy bladed machete and a good multi-tool to make quick work of camp jobs that will require a tad bit of precision & finesse. Of course putting all your tools through a day's worth of labor will warrant some eventual maintenance somewhere down the line. So take a few seconds of your time to sit down and relax. While you're at it gather some of your metal based gear like knives and other sharps as well as your saws, multi-tools and camp axes and give em a quick helping of WD40. Not only will it help prevent steel from corroding and catching rust, it will also drive moisture out of hinges, pivot points and in between metal liners. Always keep a can of wd40 - you'll be glad you had it. On a side note, it also makes for a good accelerant when building fire in rough weather.
