Find a good archery shop and get fitted with a bow that feels good to you and then practice, practice and practice and you'll do fine.

thinking about getting a bow

today was at the archery shop and was holding back a primos brand bow. with the other manufacturers, i noticed my arms werent straight and steady like they should be but with the primos bows i noticed it was level the entire time. so im thinking about going for their brand of bows. plus the grip feels good too!

feel is real important - if it feels good, it probably will shoot good. Thumbs up

Primos bows are made by PSE. If you like the Primos you might try other PSE variations.

Probably the most challenging aspect of bow hunting is not the bow but the hunting. With a bow you have to get closer to your game. If your good at that aspect of the hunt, then the rest will come with practice.
