Thread: Need advice on a Bow

  1. #11
    You need to ask yourself, how serious are you going to be with it? The technology changes every year, so there's always some good deals on used bows. I'd decide what I wanted and then look for it used. No matter how complicated and accessorized they get, you can still kill a deer with a stick and a string. Like with a gun, it's the shooter that counts. This is an example of proper stance and draw.

    You can run... but you'll just die tired. 3%

    You can get a BRAND NEW Bear Grizzly for $300.....great bow as are most other Bear bows, you can't go wrong. There are so many options out there, and I disagree with not buying a used bow. There are.some great deals in the TradGang.com classifieds and eBay.

    Yep great form!

    Please find someone that has shot a lot to help you with form from the start. I work with youngsters in a bowhunting mentor program and can get them shooting well enough to hunt in 2 or 3 sessions. Form and follow thru are more important than the bow you choose, how one feels should determine brand, not who you talk to. Grips vary, but cam feel is just as important. Poundage is usually WAY more than is really needed. Most of our kids start wih 40-45 lbs and still blow thru most deer shot!

    You don't work with the Boy Scouts by any chance do you?

All are about $380 including sights, quiver, rest, and silencers.
    I recommend the Redhead from Bass Pro. The trained specialists will assist you in deciding on the right bow, and set it up for you in the store. I'm thinking about getting started in bow hunting this fall. Also, I read that Missouri allows, or will soon allow carrying concealed while bow hunting.
