I am 18 and was wanting to get into hunting. i have wanted to start for a long time, but havent had the opportunity. i am moving to the mountains of Boone, NC and will finally have a chance! i have a few questions which i need answered. 1. is it a better idea to start out hunting with a rifle, then move to bow hunting? (i would imagine u have to be much closer for bow hunting) 2. what bow is a good beginners bow? i think i would like to use a primitive bow, but was wondering if they are much harder to use than compound bows? any help appreciated. thanks!
