Hey folks, I'm a long time lurker first time poster, and I am really wanting to take up bow hunting. I guess the first thing I need to do is buy a bow and practice. I am 30 years old and have wanted to do this for about 10 years, and just never go a round to it I guess. Well, I was talking about it today and my daughter handed me one of those old wooden nickels that say "roundtuit" on it and I laughed. I don't want this thread to turn into an equipment argument, cause I know how folks can be really perticular, (ie: rage debate) but I would really like to know what would be the best bow to purchase for some one who has shot a bow maybe 5 times. I have been looking online and it's basically all greek to me. I know the saying you get what you pay for...so I don't want the cheapest bow on the market, but I also don't want to spend an arm and a leg for something I may not end up getting into. Also, I have never deer hunted before, so if you all could dumb it down for me, I would really appreciate the help. Thanks guys, and I love the forum.
