There are plenty of complete ready to shoot bows for $400-$500 so look around a bit , basspro, cabelas, gandermountain , your local shop . There really just isnt a bad bow out there any more , Dont get roped in with the whole speed thing , I would rather shoot a smooth drawing quiet bow over a faster, louder, un smooth drawing bow any day . I would also look at at buying a 50-60# bow instead of a 60-70# a 60# maxed out is more effecient then a 70# turned down to 60# . 60# will kill most any animal here in the US without a issue . All I hunt mid west deer with is 61# . If you have any questions give me a hollar .
