We can suggest a bunch of Bow brands but in order to get fitted and to make sure you're buying the bow that fits you best, I would suggest going to your local shops and trying out a few different bows to see which is best for you.
Good Luck

Default Ask co-workers if they are bow hunters

I was surprised with the number of guys that I know that bow hunt. It is a lot of fun and very popular here in MN. I personally think that they are looking to add a couple of months to their Deer hunting season. We only get a short 9 day firearms season here. The season starts for bow when it isn't cold yet and the woods are wonderful in the fall.

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.
