Bow hunting may just be the most personal rewarding experience any hunter will ever achieve. One must be skilled for up close encounters which includes extreme scent control, proper honed shooting skills, reading game signs, and controlling one's excitement when the game is close enough to spit on them. Bow hunting, I believe, makes any hunter a better hunter once all the above are completed. I'd start at a bow shop either something like Bass Pro, Cabela's, or any good small private pro shop and shoot some bows and see what you like. You will need to know your draw length for proper arrow length, comfortable draw weight, and of course your budget. Shoot several models and make your decision using the knowledge of the pro shop and other hunters in your area.
