Hey guys, been lurking the forum for about a week or so and decided to join. A little bit about myself. I'm currently a Sergeant in the Army with 5 years of service and one tour to Afghanistan with another deployment right around the corner this month. I'm stationed in Ft. Hood Texas, but I'm originally from Ohio. I started hunting when I was 6 years old for squirrel and rabbit and killed my first whitetail when I was 10 with a shotgun. My dad has bow hunted for years and I never really got into it until now for some reason. So I haven't hunted in a while being stationed in Texas and not knowing anybody with land, so I plan to start bow hunting when I move back to Ohio after my time in service is done. Finally, my question is what bow to get? I plan on using it for whitetail deer. My price range is around $500-$700 plus arrows and other essential gear to start out. Thanks guys, your advice is greatly appreciated.
