First off, welcome to the bowhunting experience!

To the bow issue, a new bow does cost more than your price range. Especially if you're talking about a Hoyt or Matthews or any other big names.

I recently purchased a Hoyt Powerhawk on 9/12/09. It's been shooting great for me so far. It cost $560 and that includes the sight, quiver, stabilizer, and everything else you need to shoot.

I realize that that's out of your price range, but the bow by its self only cost like $450, so I would think that you could pick up a used one around the price you're looking at. I might be wrong, though. I'll try to do some research and get back to you with something more concrete.

Wow. 11 years. Sorry for thinking that you're new to this. Well I really don't know all that much about the different companies and their records when it comes to your kind of criteria. Or any criteria. I know that I sound stupid and shouldn't really be posting on this if I don't know much, but I'm just happy to try my best to help out. Um......... The best I could do for you, since I don't have any experience with any other bows than my and my friend's Hoyts, is research some and you could do that on your own.

I'm new to bowhunting and shooting bows and everything. So I'm not a big help when it comes to advice on which bows to shoot or anything like that since I don't have any experience shooting many, but I will tell you this: I absolutely love my Hoyt Powerhawk and how it shoots. It's the only bow I've ever shot extensively, so that's completely biased, but it does shoot well, very consistent. Ten minutes ago I split an arrow in half. Split the knock in half and have shaft in shaft. Pretty sweet. At thirty yards, and I've only been shooting a month. AWESOME!

The best advice I could give you is to head to a dealership that has some experienced, honest people that will tell you the truth about the bows instead of trying to sell you the most expensive one they can. Try out all the kinds of bows and see which one suits you best. It's all about preference really. I like to say that there aren't really any super bad bows, just bad archers. That may not be true, but it's what I like to say. LOL. Well good luck with the choices and all that. Hope you get a bow that fits your liking for your price. Good luck!:thumbup:
