So the wife wants to get a bow and I've used the same buckmaster for the last five years and I haven't kept up on the times. Can anyone give advice on what would be a good priced bow for her to shoot for a while (not just a starter). Pictures and links would be greatly appreciated. I'm just tickled that she wants to get to shooting!!!

IMO Bear Archery makes the best value bows. They shoot great and aren't overpriced.

Amen. I’ve hunted all my life, Bow and Arrow, Traditional Black Powder, Shot Gun and various rifles. Last winter, my wife decided to join me in bow hunting. I took her to the Bass Pro shop in North Atlanta. They let her try several and talked to her about the advantages/disadvantages of each. Then set up the one she liked and gave her a lesson. She was tickled pink. We were only able to hunt twice and she did not get a shot, but is practicing every night and planning on hunting this weekend.

If I had tried to pick a bow, my likelihood of getting one she would like is near 0%. But the bow picked her and she could not be happier.

Now she is occasionally shooting my guns. I don’t know if I’ll make a gun hunter out of her, but she can use any of my guns to defend herself.
