I've got $200 and would like to take up bowhunting. I might be very bad at this, so that is why I don't want to spend more than $200. :)

I've seen the following for sale in my price range and was hoping to get some opinions. Or if you know of a better deal, Please let me know.
Help me pick the best one.
Oh, I'm looking for 60-70 lb pull and about 29" draw.

The first I came across was this PSE Nova and Proline.

Proline 29" 70# 70 + shipping and a PSE nova 70# for $80 + shipping

Out of the two that you have ther I would go fo the Nova. Thats a pretty goo starter bow. What makes you think that you may not be any good at archery? We live pretty close so if there is anything I can do to help ya get started off on the right foot just let me know.

There is really no sure fire way to reccomend a bow to someone. Basically, there are no bad bows out there, just different types and styles. The only sure fire way to know what bow will fit your needs is to handle and shoot as many of them as you can. Go to several proshops and look at their used bows and hopefully, they can let you shoot them and help you figure out if you want to shoot fingers or release and sights or instinctive. They will be able to figure out your draw length. I would also reccomend keeping your draw weight on the lower end. 60lbs is plenty to kill deer. Too large of a draw weight can often cause shooting error and it just isnt necessary. You can also look at pawn shops but they most likely will not be set up so you can shoot the bow and then when you need work done on the bow, you're gonna have to go to one of the pro shops so I think it is better to buy from them if you can. You might also consider starting out with a long bow or recurve. No bells and whistles to mess you up and there is nothing like learning archery the way it started, with a stick and string.

I was thinking the Reflex Gamegetter was a pretty good deal, but it didn't come with anything. So really I had to spend quite a bit more to get to the point of the other bows.

DSG, Thanks for the Heads up. I couldn't find any posts by "Pipe" in the for sale section. I'll see if I can find a post by Pipe. If you can, have Pipe u2u me. Thanks.

You don't have to spend that much.

TruGlo makes a great sight for about $30 or $40

Easton ST Epic arrows will cost you about $40

Cheaper prong style rest will run you $20 (or less if one of guys happens to have an extra laying around...which I think I do. Wouldn't cost you a penny).

You don't need a quiver right away. Buy yourself a cheapy hip quiver or even make yourself one for next to nothing out of a couple golf club tubes that are meant to fit inside your golf bag.

You could start of shooting fingers and it would only cost you the price of a finger tab but a release sure is nice. $20 and up.
