BDann,

I don't want to be discouraging, but the cost of the bow and all of the other accessories needed to get an arrow headed down range is only a part of the cost of gear you will need to start hunting.

If you are new to archery, then it will take a while for you to acquire the shooting skills needed.

I have one of those PSA combo kits that comes with almost everything needed: (sights, quiver, arrow rest) and the store I got it from threw in 6 arrows, rear peep, release, arm guard, and set it up for me for about what you are willing to spend. Look around but make sure the place you buy it from is able to set it up to fit you, a hunting bow is a highly personal thing.

I bought my bow last August and got my bow license last September and still do not have everything I need to go hunting. I have been practicing all year and intend to purchase the final few things I need before the season opens 9/27/03. I, just like you, are on a limited budget.

Good luck,

Tom

Matt,
I wanted to say the same thing, because I also want to upgrade, but I've made up my mind that I will put a few deer in my freezer before I do upgrade.

The approach I'm taking is to buy a few upgraded things at a time, first I will get good sights, next a good arrow rest, and when I have all of the hang on accesories, I will shop for the bow.

Hey Matt, have you tried using carbon arrows with you bow?

Tom
