    I like PSE and Hoyt myself. I shoot every chance I get in between kids and work. Just waiting for the New Mexico hunt draw results for my mule deer and elk applications.

    Id set a budget and shoot every bow that fits it. A good pro shop will help you find what fits you.

    Oh there is definitely a budget. I just want about better brands so I'm not going in blind. Reading up on fps on the different models and draw length and all that good stuff.

    Sometimes, a local pro shop can set you up with a quality used bow that someone may have traded in or sold them, and you reap the benefits because they’re usually fully set up and you save money. I would stay away from used bows from sellers you don’t know like online and craigslist stuff. Sometimes it could be a seller who didn’t know what they are doing and possibly dry fired it; then you deal with the safety issues there.

    I shoot a Hoyt, I have friends that shoot Mathews, Bowtech, PSE and Elite and they are all good bows. Like others said a pro shop is a must. I'm right handed but left eye dominant, always just thought I was a bad shot with a bow until I went to a pro shop and he had me shoot some left handed bows. Ended up with a Hoyt just because it felt more comfortable to me. They will measure you for the correct draw length, etc. Just don't get carried away on draw weight. 60 is plenty for deer and won't wear you out as quick when practicing.

    Thank you!
    I'm going to check out a local shop here soon. Now I have some brands and other information for when I go in.

    I bow hunt a lot. Like said above Matthews and Hoyt are good bows to be honest now days most all of them are good just get a good archery shop to fit you with one and decide which one feels the best to you. Another thing broadheads have made drastic improvements also. Far as CWD I wouldn’t let that bother me to much there is no proof it can transfer to a human.

    As I'm reading up on everything, it seems everything has made huge improvements.

    Yes they have! Lots of well priced bows that will do the job. I’m a firm believer in mechanical broadheads, but that argument is about like a what’s the best oil argument .

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
