  • I’m looking at getting a new bow. Right now I have a Browning Midas that I bought used. It only shoots 40 lbs. and I was looki

    I’m looking at getting a new bow. Right now I have a Browning Midas that I bought used. It only shoots 40 lbs. and I was looking at getting one that shoots 50-60 lbs (it will be used mostly for deer). I’ve been looking at Bear or PSE ready-to-hunt packages. Is there another brand that I should be looking for? I would like to keep the cost under $600. Thanks in advance for your help!

    My oldest son and I started bow hunting 2 years ago. I had the same $600 limit you do. I went to the local Bass Pro and shot every package bow they had in that price range. I found the Martin Pantera to suit me the best. My son had about $400 to spend and ended up buying a Parker Blazer package after shooting all of them in that range. They have both performed flawlessly for us the last two seasons.

      Yeah, Bear, Parker, PSE, and Martin all make good bargain bows, although I've heard some of Parker's models can be a bit cheaply made. But if it was me,I would look seriously at Diamond, which is a bargain line made by Bowtech, and I've heard they are nearly as good as the high-priced Bowtechs, only much cheaper.

        I agree with huntfishtrap,
        Check out diamond as well.

          I have a Bear "Charge" as my starter bow. The entire set-up cost me $400. I shoot 2" groups at 40-yards, and have arrowed deer with no problems out to 35-yards.
          Lord knows I am no Robin Hood. The bow has served me well for a year, and I am in no hurry to "upgrade."

            Mission bows are good beginner bows that run around $350 for the bow and you'll have $250 to put into your accessories. They are a Matthews brand. I have the Mission X3. Don't get caught up in the hype of the bow Nazi's, a "beginner" bow will do everything their bow will do except break the bank!

                I would recommend looking at a diamond bow by bowtech. They offer some really fast bows most of them under 400 dollars.
