What must I look for in a bow? How do you size one and choose one?
Find a good archery shop and visit with the guy that runs the place (Not a clerk)
and tell him that you want to get into Archery and you don't want to spend a lot
but you want a decent setup.
The good shops know that if they treat you right you will return to upgrade when you
know more about the sport and the equiptment.
There are so many things to learn and so many choices of bows and shafts that you get
overwhelmed and at most "Good" shops they will measure your draw length and let you
shoot several different types and letoffs to find out what feels best for you.
Also these shops are a good place to practice and get help with anything that may come
I have seen a lot of people get discouraged because they went to wally world and let a
clerk that new nothing about what you need to get started sell them the wrong bow
(Wrong draw length,Weight, wrong arrow spine, wrong broad heads and ETC).
Start right and you will love it start wrong and it will just collect dust.
PS: It is a great family sport also.
