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 Everything I'm familiar with is out of date, and I have no idea what to buy.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'm assuming you're sticking to Oregon, so click here:

As far as I can tell, Brett Rogers is the best non-UFC contender out there now that Barnett has been removed from immediate contention. I don't give him any significant chance of winning, but it has potential to be a fun fight to watch.
