As much as I hate to promote the stupid site, craigslist usually has some pretty good deals on used bows. It also has really crappy deals on s&8t bows to so talk around feel'em up shoot some and find what you like and are comfy with.

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.

Just started bow hunting last year and killed my first with a bow this year. It's a blast just practicing with a bow. Good luck finding a bow. As others have said you can find a perfectly good used bow for a reasonable price.

Get your draw length mesured first. Being your first yr I wudnt pay the money for a new bow unless you have it to spend and have a good spouse that wudnt get mad if u did. I hate archery talk but you can find a ton of bows on there for really cheap. My buddy got back into bowhunting last yr and I found him a 3yr old bowtech allegance with sight and rest and arrows for $300. Havent really seen any deals on tndeer classifieds. You could check your local craigslist. If you find one and the draw length is to long/short and its a good deal, you can always go to your closest dealer for that brand and buy you the right cam you need to fit your draw length. Good luck. If I can help you find one let me know. I still feel that rush bowhunting that I did when I shot my first deer.
