Can you get compound bows there?
I don't use a bow,but I have several friends who do.
Here is a help website to help with choosing what you need.

Well, as a female my family are all trying to talk me into getting a compound bow. I, however, much prefer my recurve. I'm accurate with it to 20 yards and decent with it to 30 yards. It has only two components - string and bow. The compound requires special equipment to restring and it's very unforgiving of an off center draw. The compound is absolutely more accurate and powerful at greater distances but the recurve IMO are more durable. Now, not everyone can shoot a recurve but for those who can instinctively aim them I recommend them.
