    My guess is you would be around 30" but it will vary by how you like to hold your bow. Wherever you buy your bow should have a tech shop as part of the Archery department that will tailor it to your draw length. That is partially your answer as to "where" to find a good bow. Make sure as a first time archery hunter you go to a good sporting goods store with a knowledgeable sales group. Not only will they be able to help you choose a bow that is a good starter bow, but they will be happy to give you all the pointers to have that bow set up exactly how you want it. Don't be shy about being a newcomer to the sport. Tell the sales group you want to get into the sport and you need all the help you can get. Here's where going to a respected sporting goods store should keep you from getting duped by some sales guy trying to get you into an $800 bow right off the bat. They should be showing you some bows in the $350-$500 price range. PSE has come a long way on some of their bows that will be in that range. I also recommend a peep sight and a wisker biscuit arrow rest(couple accessories that are very helpful in the beginning). Shop around and have fun. You'll be so happy you finally got into the sport.

        Go to a reputable bow shop and do it right, you’ll be glad you did! It all depends on the distance from your rest to the knocking point plus the distance of the mechanical release or fingers. Using a mechanical release I find is a must!

        HECK WITH THE DEER STAND!
