1st step would be to go to a local pro shop and get your DL measured. You don't want to start with a bow that does not fit. Next look at your budget and get something for a decent price....you would not want to get the cheapest thing available (makes for a bad archery experience) or too expensive (in case you don't like it). The clasified ads here on AT is a great place to get everything you need to get rolling. There is also alot of info in this section of AT. http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=121. Good luck and Welcome to AT!!!! :wink: Lots of great folks and useful info here.Hello. Recently I went out with some of my friends and tried archery. I really enjoyed it and now I would like to purchase some archery equipment to mess around with target archery in my back yard. Problem is I have no clue where to start, what to get, or anything. I would really appreciate it if someone could direct me to a thread, site, or maybe just give me some advice on where to start.
