    I'm looking into getting into bowhunting, but I have to buy a bow. Any recommendations? I'm looking for a ready to hunt package under 400$

    I'd say go to a bow shop, they have a lot of used bows for sale that are perfectly good, people just sell them so that they can buy the newest technology. Make sure you shoot the bow before you buy it.

      The PSE Bo Madness is a good bow for starting it has a price of $399 at cabelas. Also the Bear Strike RTH Package is a good start at $399 also at cabelas.

        yea i'd say used is one of the best before you buy a brand new bow because most used bows are already pretty much set up.. if new i'd say pse..they're quality for the price you pay which isn't terribly much!

            Right now is the perfect time to get a really good deal on a very nice used bow. I just recently got a Mission x3 it is a 2 yr old model but perfect condition from a friend who needed the money due to a job loss. He had over $900 dollars in it very little use and I gave him a fair price of $400, I could have gotten it cheaper but didn't want to take advantage of him. I research all his accessories and he had around $450 todays price between drop away rest, treelimb quiver, the single pin adjustable sight, release, and arrows. I would check craigslist ask all your buddies, people at work if they know of anyone that is looking to get rid of a bow, and I would bet you more times than not you'll find a great deal on a great bow. Use a bow dealer as a last resort. Also the prices some have told you on the bows in this post isn't counting the included cost of accessories you will need to add to your bow, which will double the cost at minimum.

              JM1993 is telling you right,try a few bows out and find one that suits you first,if you don't have some one to do a safety inspect on a used bow at least you'll know what feel your looking for in a bow. GOOD LUCK AND WELCOME TO A NEW CHALLENGE.
