Browning Micro Adrenaline here, IMO the best affordable youth bow there is. Cost me about 300 with the basics, and hasnt failed yet.

I shoot a Hornes Archery recurve. 62lb. You can call me somewhat of a traditionalist. No scopes or sights, instinctive shooting.

I recomend a traditional type of bow first, as iI believe helps promote better shooting habits. Whatever you decide, if you plan to hunt deer you will need greater than 40lb draw weight. But I'd make the step to 45lbs.

ALpine Micros are good bows to start out with there relativly cheap and they can grow with you. I have one right now that i dont use anymore perfectly good i just decided to get a more expensive bow that i thought i needed. I am willing to sell it to you i can explain it more if you want. E-mail me at real_baseball@hotmail.com and i could try and send you some pictures of it.

definitely go with a mathews if you can afford it. I work at a archery shop, so I have the luxury of being able to shoot just about every bow on the market, whether it be somehting we carry, or someone's bow we're working on, and the Switchback, as of now, is the QUIETEST and SMOOTHEST bow on the market, by a longshot. Needless to say, that's what I'm carrying. :yes: :toofunny:

you shouldn't have to wear an armguard to keep the string/cables from hitting your arm. The draw length was either too long or you were rolling your shoulder.

I shoot a BOWTECH PATRIOT and love it, didn't get to hunt much last year but killed a doe with it. Its kind of a expensive bow but well worth it, as for a first timer go with a cheap PSC so you get good quality but not the price. My first bow was a no namer out of a pawn shop so you don't have to have a name brand bow to kill a animal. There are tons of options out there so go to a pro shop and ask them to let you shot some, if they don't let you then tell them to shove it cus they should let you if they want your money.
