new to bow hunting

I'm interested in bowhunting, I've never done it before, but would like to get into it. I'm curious to know everything about it, what bow would be good for a beginner, what kind of arrows, where to hunt, what if i dont have a stand or blind can i go on foot? any advice would be greatly appreciated.

steveland,
whoa, whoa, whoa that's a lot of questions! Instead of trying to answer all your questions via email....I would steer you to your local archery shop. Check out the phone book and find a good shop with a experienced staff. They will start you out with the right gear and anwer your questions. By the way...once you start hunting with a bow...the rifle will lose it's apeal. My 2Cents Thumbs up

That's the best advice I could give also. There's a lot of options and info that a bow shop will be able to answer faster and more accurately, any you'll find it lots of fun going in listening to their stories and wealth of knowledge. Yes [/b]

if you are just getting into bow hunting, i have some advice. Start simple and keep it simple. I bought a used bow and got a hold of some arrows from a guy i knew. They just happened to match what i needed for the bow i got, so i grabbed them. I bought outer layer camo, hunted from a stand i had. There is soooooo much out there that it is easy to get lost all the details. Just the arrows alone can make your head swim, carbon or aluminum, fat or thin, over draw or not, vanes or feathers, how long, how tall, nock type, head type, and the list goes on, just for arrows!!! Start slow, keep it simple, move from there.

Good luck, have fun. Also... Don't get depressed if you don't get anything right away. It took me 6 seasons to get my first doe. Lots of learning later, i'm still enjoying.
