I'm looking to start bow hunting this year and honestly don't have a clue as to where to start looking for a bow. I wouldn't mind starting with a used one, if it's in decent shape. Anybody have any suggestions on makes and models? Also, any insight on arrows and broadheads would be nice too. I'm a pretty low budget for now, so cost efficient would be great as well. I'm looking to start hunting next month when Turkey season sets in. Thanks!

It will be tough to get comfortable enough by next month to hunt with especially if you have never shot a bow before . I would recommend going and shooting as many bows as possible and find the one that is right for you . Maybe try and find a shop that has some used bows as well .

Find a good bow shop that is willing to help ya out. I would imagine some of the guys here could recommend a good shop in your area. As far as choices go, it will depends on a price range for each piece of equipment. Good luck!

No shops in Nashville.
There is a shop in Franklin called Archers Den.
There is Poindexters in Gallatin.
There is Steves in Columbia.
Murfreesboro Outdoors.
Sportsman Store in Dickson.
There is a couple of shops in Clarksville.
There is shop in Sparta.
There is a shop in Herndon Kentucky (about an hour and a half up I-24)
There may be more around Middle Tennessee, but that is all I know of.
