I've been bowhunting for a very long time now, but im still no expert.
If you want my opinion - get a compound bow and go with PSE.
Recurve bows, in my opinion, are for when you've mastered a compound because a recurve takes a lot more skill to hit your target.
Check out the PSE Bow Madness XS. It's what I shoot, and I love it. You're going to want to know a lot more than "What bow should I get" because equally important are arrows, broadheads, sights, and misc other little things that really add up.
How much $$ you spend depends on how serious you're going to take it.
You can get a field ready Bow Madness XS for $699.00 (click here
) --- but side note, you'll want the 70#...50# just isnt worth it...even if you have to work up to 70, you'll want to be shooting 70 in the end.
But, in this guys opinion, you're getting horrible quality accessories. It's better to buy a bare bow and add your own accessories.
There's an enormous discussion to be had if you're just starting to get into archery, so perhaps its' best to start at the beginning and ask what it is you're aiming to do?
