shoot as many different bows as you can get your hands on. you will know when you shoot "the one".
experienced hunters know its not just a bushy white tail, its a big middle finger.

nothing makes a fish bigger than almost being caught

Like Stik said you will know it when you shoot it. All Bow companies have good products now. I love the skullworks camo. The only bad I hear now days is that Bowtech's customer service blows!

There are an awful lot of good bow companies out there. Don't get drawn in by what's popular - shoot and find what you like. With all that said, I recommend you try a Hoyt before you decide. I bought Hoyt probably 8 years ago. Hunting with same bow, only put new string on it. Great bow - quiet as a mouse.

I think another thing to consider is a good pro shop. I really like to buy a bow where I feel confident in the shop to work on it if needed.

Good suggestions here!

Except, I have never had a problem with Bowtechs Customer Service, especially if you have a good dealer for their brands.
I have called them up myself and gotten parts, decals, etc etc
They are a super good company.

Stik gives great advice. (Did I really say that???) ;\)

Remember one thing, almost all bows kill. You may look sexier and get more gals in a 2013 Corvette, but that 1982 Chevette will still take you to the store and back... same as it's high horsepower, sleek and shiny, sexy nephew.

That being said, I shoot a Mathews. \:\)

I am a close range bowhunter....past 20 yards, I wait. Really.

most any bow will kill a deer and do it efficiently out to 20 yards, and where I hunt shooting past that distance is really not very high pecentage.

The farther you plan to shoot, the better the bow , imo.

Most shots I have taken are inside 15 yards. It's hard to miss
There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict.

Walk away; the battle they are fighting is not with you, but with themselves.
