I would look for an 4-6 year old bow. A bow brand is like askin folks ford,chevy,or dodge. Find one that you like a have at it. They should be very reasonably priced depending on what s on it. sights, rest, ect.....

remember you dont need a bow that shoots 330 fps to kill a deer. 32foot pounds of kinetic energy is all it takes my freind x2 on the quiet part

There are some GREAT bows out there in the 4-6 yr old range. You can find some really good deals after archery season closes.

Whatever you do, make sure the bow "fits" you. You will never shoot a bow well that has a draw length too short or too long. If your new to archery either have a friend who knows the sport help you or go to a reputable bow shop that can help you find the right bow.

Good point. I know alot of folks who think they need to buy every new model that comes out. Should be lots of good used bows to choose from.

Good post. Been thinking the same thing.

Two questions: (1) any recommendations on a reputable bow shop in Williamson/Maury County vicinity; and (2) what are the collective thoughts on a cross bow as an alternative?

Thanks.
