Default What compound bow to buy?

My bow got stolen, what should I get?

I don't need top of the line but I don't want junk either. I'm hoping to catch a good after season sale on a year end close out or something.

I have a Parker and I like it
I bought it for 200 on clist

But if I was to buy new I'd get either a bear bow or a quest

Iv shot a quest g5 and liked it better then Matthews but that was last summer
Quest is made in Michigan

Bow tech make a good bow as well

I'm definitely not doing a crossbow. Nothing against using them but it just doesn't feel like bow hunting to me.

A friend of mine offered a friend of his elite z28. It is fully loaded and is asking $450. I don't know what comes with it though.

Shoot it first. I'm not brand loyal at all but the most expensive bow is worthless if it doesn't fit you or feel right in your hands

A crossbow isn't a bow... it's a crossbow.

This x 1000

Matthews makes some of the best bows out there but you couldn't pay me to own one....they just feel all wrong.

I personally am a huge fan of the Strother rush xt...only thing keeping me from buying one is $$....i currently shoot a Hoyt 38 ultra......great shooting bow

I did some shopping at sportsmanship guide today. The guy there was really suggesting the bear or the quest. I want to go in and shoot them when I have more time.

The prices were good on them. I'm not going to spend a lot of money right now on a bow right now. I've never had a top of the line bow so I'm sure it is a huge step up from my last one. I need to shoot a bunch of them before I can choose though.

When you have a bad shoulder and can only pull a compound bow back 2 maybe 3 times before you have a sharp pain like someone is stabbing you in the shoulder. It's the next best thing to get me back in the tree.
