There has already been tons of good advice, but if you would like to shoot a Turkish Bow I live in Atlanta GA and go to a few events in that area as well as Pennsic and Gulf Wars also the Iowa Horseback Festival in Sept. I have bows from Kassai,Grozer, Yumi,Seluki, and a few others. Let me know and I would be happy to bring them for you to try (depending on draw weight)
Thumb rings are easy to learn if you do not have three finger ingrained in you yet. If you do it can drive you crazy.
Also Grozer makes a Tarter that when strung looks the same as the Turkish but is not as sensitive as the Turkish, and Gilbert was selling it as well as Kassai
Good Luck and fun shooting

I thank you all for the info. I never considered this problem since
I know little of thumb ring draw to begin with... I think I'd like
to learn, but don't know anyone in my area that uses that method. It
seems that it takes a bit of form in and of itself that is different
from the regular three finger draw. And I don't like the idea of
having to wear a glove when it's so bloody hot mid day on the
archery range, I guess it is a matter of choosing between two evils.
