I have never been hunting but I would like to. My boyfriend bowhunts and I find it really interesting. I am curious of what is a good bow to start out with.

Welcome to Jesse's, Angel. It's always nice to see another female join us here. I wish I could help you, but I'm more of a hunt with gun gal. There are a few here that do use a bow. If no one here has the answer, you might want to ask one of the fella's. They are always there to help a women in need http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-cool-shades-down.gif

Thank you and if I need to I will ask the guys. I am not just interested in bow hunting, guns are just as good. So what type of gun would you suggest for a beginner. I am really trilled to be learning all there is to know about hunting. I can't believe how much I really like it after being around my BF and hearing all about his hunting trips. Thanks Again http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-jhp-rocks.gif

I do bow hunt, and yes it is a blast.
What I strongly suggest is that you go to your local archery shop.
and just shoot the different bows.
And then you just want to go with what fits you right & feels right.
If you have more question, Come on down to the Bow Hunting section.
We are always happy to help

I don't consider myself a bowhunter yet, but I bought a bow over a year ago and started going to the archery range. My man is a bowhunter too so I wanted to try it but his bow is too hard for me to try. So I got a junior bow, just legal enough for hunting and it's pretty easy for me to pull back at it's max, 40lbs. I don't have the distance & range he has but if and when I go hunting with it I want to be sure I'm taking a close shot that I can make, so I'm practicing a lot before I get up the nerve to go out. Hopefully this fall!
What I like about a bow is I can hunt in the early season when it's not cold and snowy here. It's pretty darn cold by the time gun season comes. I'll probably upgrade to a larger bow in time but for now I'm enjoying mine. It's a Champion brand. That might be a Canadian company, I'm not sure.
Good luck! http://www.jesseshunting.com/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smiley-faces-toast-beers.gif
