My last bow was a 1970's Sears recurve bow handed down from my cousins in Santa Clara back when I was a lad that was given items of value from random family members.

As far as I can tell, there are no new hand-me down bows in my future. It is time to buy a bow.

From what I'm seeing, bows have changed tremendously in the last 30 years. Everything I'm familiar with is out of date, and I have no idea what to buy.

Without pointing me to Archery Talk or 24hourcampfire, can someone give me some basic advice about what I should be looking for? I'm like 6'5 and can handle a decent pull strength. I'm not sure if I will hunt deer or Elk but I'd like the option down the road.

I hate to just walk into Cabella's or Bass Pro and ask for help. I'd rather walk in knowing what I want and not put myself at their mercy. Ideally I could get back in for under $200 for a starter set-up before I figure out that I'm not really going to be into this long term with a $1000 investment...

First, scan the regs and see if you want to deal with all them laws (or will be able to hunt when and where they say you can).

I don't know if I'd say Spinks is SOL, though he assuredly has one hell of a mountain to climb if he wants to remain in the big game. Still -- a rematch with Juda isn't out of the question, and I'd welcome Zab / Cory III.
