    To measure your draw length, determine the length of your arm-span in inches. Stand with your arms out and palms facing forward. Don't stretch when measuring. Just stand naturally. Have someone else help you, and measure from the tip of one middle finger to the other across your back. Then simply divide that number by 2.5. The quotient is your proper draw length (in inches) for your body size for a Release Shooter. For a Finger Shooter, add 1.5 Inches.

    quackwacker,

    How do you know what length and such that you need? I too was thinking of ordering but figure I better head south to a pro shop.

    MasterAngler, I ordered my bow set-up completely over the internet. I was a little skeptical about it but have heard nothing but great things about the place. I did it and couldn't be happier. If your looking for information go the link I have posted and start at the top and just read. It's where I got my bow and right out of the box I robin hooded an arrow. Make sure you go to their "home" page and start reading all the links. I think this will enlighten you. The reason I didn't go to a pro-shop is that there are none out here in the sticks..... Great place,great service and all I had to do was open my case and adjust my sight pins to my desired yardages. Lovin' it!:2thumbup:

    Master Angler,
    I just started bow hunting too. I agree with Jimbo, go to an archery pro shop and get fitted for a bow. And then shoot different makes and models to see what you are comfortable with. The Pros might try to upsell you but most will not. Have a limit in mind for the amount of money you want to spend because I found out the sky is the limit. I bought my bow on Ebay after I talked to an Archery Pro. But I went back to him for all my accesories and arrows, calls blind etc. and he also set up my used bow. Hope this helps Kevin

    Thanks Jim,

    I figured that would probably be the best thing (way to many things to consider).... I'll probably go to Scheels - since Lincoln doesn't have a Bass Pro shop.... they are always very helpful!!

    Dang, are these posts even in English.....?

    I can't understand anything you guys are talking about.

    Obviously, I know nothing about bow hunting and there is a lot more to it than I realized.

    I am planning on getting into this bowhunting next year (I've only hunted with rifle and black powder for deer) Can anyone suggest a brand or type of bow for the beginner? Very general question I know and I realize there are lots of things to consider. Just looking for an idea- then I'll go talk to someone at Scheels or Cabelas. But nothing real fancy or expensive as I can always upgrade down the road. I think I can get the girlfriend to get me one for Christmas- hopefully anyway!

    thanks!
