It has been a very long time since I bow hunted. You can buy a cheap compound which will probably be noisy or you can buy a good quality recurve for the same money. Go to a bow shop where you will fitted properly sized bow with the correct draw length and the correct length arrows. They should have lessons available too. You dont want to start out with bad habits. Hunting with a bow will teach you to hunt not just shoot.

"As democracy is perfected, the office of President represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be occupied by a downright fool and complete narcissistic moron."
