Thanks to all of you that offered suggestions for buying a bow. The advice to head out to Fletchers in Wasilla turned out to be really good advice. Amy treated me really well and had endless patience for my stream of questions.
I ended up with a 60# Mission X3 set up with a Trophy Ridge Dropzone rest, Impact Hammerhead 3-pin sight with level, Sims modular stabilizer, wrist strap, Scott Short-n-Sweet release, and 1/2 dozen Beeman ICS Hunter 400's with 100gr field points. Before I left the store, I was shooting 2-3" groups on their 20 yard range. Needless to say, I had a good time at Fletchers.
I look forward to getting practiced up to take the ADF&G bowhunters course.
