Yea, used bow can be the way to go. The only problem is, I know how I use my hunting gear sometimes and I don't really trust buying bows used. Guns are a different story. Bows I take more seriously. Just cause there are so many things that can be wrong or go wrong with a bow.
Good Hunting,

savingyour6 is right. There are some good ones out there. But the key word is SOME. You do have to be patient. I just happened to stumble on mine out of luck. But you never know when something like that will happen. Just keep your eyes peeled. I am looking at new bows now too for next season, but I am looking at the really expensive ones. Unfortunately, even ebay or amazon has them for pretty expensive. But you know what they say "you get what you pay for". And there are some things that I will go ahead and pay a lot of money for. For example: bows, guns, eye surgery, vasectomy, etc. I don't think these are the things you want to find a deal on. hahaha.

I hear you there. Im just not into the bow hunting all the way yet like everyone else. But if I start then I will be doing the same thing I geuss. I havent had a newer bow at all. My buddys bow that he letting use this year is the nicest one I have use yet. I have been looking at the ones in Dicks but dont know if there any good. Well Im sure they are but am I going to get a good one or a wast of my money.

if you can try some of the small archery shops or even like bass pro shops. most of them have a range and will let you put a few arrows thru a bow... they will let you see what you like and dont like and its the cheaper way of testing bows... also as a word of experience DONT DROP THEM.... a 40 dollar sight later...lol

Yes, I would agree with the don't drop the bow. haha.

Yea, I would always test a bow before you buy it. But other than testing, make sure there are no hairline cracks, warps, or anything asthetic wrong with it. And also make sure you know what the previous owner (if there is one) has done with the bow. i.e. drop it, run over it, dry fire, etc.

No, I haven't been out fox hunting yet this year or last year, but I would have to recommend it to everybody. It is a lot of fun until your brother brings home 5 little baby fox and there eyes aren't even open yet. Then it makes you feel bad for trapping there mother.
