Long time hunter. Have harvested deer and small game with my recurve. Have never used a release or a peep--just instinctive. Most of the past 20 years I've used guns to shoot deer, game birds, small game. Just moved to a great whitetail area, a place where I can hunt every day close to home. I want to get back into bowhunting in a big way. Here is my question: If you were starting out fresh, from strictly an equipment standpoint, and you had between $1-2,000 to spend on all bowhunting equipment, what would you buy? Bow brand? Any other tips? Also, best retailers close to Madison, Wisconsin?
Thanks in advance.
