Sorry, but i couldn't help myeslf. All I want to say is, you don't need a thousand dollar bow to be efficient with it. It kills me to see guys that think the more money they spend, the better they will be with their bow. Then they don't even practice! The only way to get better at archery, as with anything in life, is practice practice practice. Find something within your price range(probably cheap bc it is your first bow) and it doesn't need to be brand new, but if that's what you want then by all means get a new one. Some people don't like second hand things bc they have no idea what the previous owner has done to/with it. Get it set up to your specs, with the help of someone in an archery shop, get whatever extras you want. And shoot the chit out of. Practice with your broadheads when possible, the way I look at it, you don't shoot animals with field points. My best advice is practice like you are hunting down to the t. I've gone as far as putting stands up in my yard to practice out of. Know your bow, know its limitations, as well as your own. There's already enough jokers out there flinging arrows at everything inside 60 yards because they have seen it on tv. I hunt public land and have seen enough hobbling/wounded deer to last a lifetime. Have respect for the game you pursue, whatever it may be
