    Default Bow suggestions

    My dad is wanting to get back into bow hunting. He archery hunted in Idaho in the 80's, but then ended up just using the rifle after that. Now that he is up here in AK for good, he wants to get back into archery.

    What compound bow would you suggest for him to start back up with? I don't think that he needs anything top of the line or new for that matter. I'm thinking that he is around a 27"-29" draw length and 60 lb pull would be good.

    Thank you in advance for you thoughts!

    Look at the Diamond bows. They're made by Bowtech, but are a little less expensive and very forgiving.

    Thumbs up Archers Den

    Take him in to the Archers Den in Eagle River and talk with Paul. He will be a great resource in finding the right bow for your dad. He might even be able to find a used bow that will fit him.
