Hey there, I'm new to the forum and archery but I want to buy a bow for hunting. I was wondering if anyone knew any bows that could be shot both right and left handed? I'm ambidextrous and wanted to find a bow to suit that. there's also a lot of research showing that doing activities with your non dominant brain side actually improves your dominant side in the process, so i'm looking to shoot with both hands. Thanks in advance

Great idea but IMO archery is more based on your dominant eye than dominant hand.

Listen to IHB? He's a legend. Would be cool though especially for hunting. Shoot through cable system bows might work. Pse has some I believe.

OK Archery..... Shoot thru risers. I believe Hoyt has some shoot thru models as well. They are all primarily target bows.

You would have to shoot instinctively unless you somehow had a sight on both sides of the bow.

Shoot through riser shoot through harness it wouldn't matter what side the sight was on. Would likely have to be adjusted left/right depending on what eye you are using to shoot with.

PSE and OK Archery both have shoot thru risers that can be shot either way but IHB is right about the eye dominance thing.

Even with shoot through, arent most of the grips still hand specific?

I think the no shelf longbow might be the answer.

How much they run?
The shoot thru risers start at $1900.00 then you have upgrade options. The difference is the US Dollar against the Euro. The dollar is devalued by 39% against the euro so if it was parity the bow would be closer to $1400.00, similar to Hoyt's MSRP.

I wasn't impressed by the vibration in the DST I shot, even with a stabilizer (hunting length/weight) on it. It held very nice on target, but I would look at other options.....Trying to load the arrow thru the riser/cables takes some getting used to.

Yea, that's pretty steep.

Out of my range. My bow fully set up with arrows and BH's isn't that much.
