I called expert archer Tom Hahn and asked him for some direction on choosing a bow. “I like the single camera bows. They are easier to tune, more forgiving to the shooter, you can get anywhere from a three pin sight to a five pin sight for more distance. I like fall away rests versus trap style rests. That way you have no influence on your arrow when you shoot it. When you shoot, it falls away, so there's no contact for the arrow anymore. A decent bow case. If you're going up for a weekend a soft case works great but if you’re going in for 10 or 11 days like I always do, take a hard case. You can pack a lot more supplies around it. Get set up with a good set of arrows, half dozen arrows and a release. Probably the cheapest thing you will ever get is string wax and it will last you forever. It’s maintenance that you need to do on your string to keep your string conditioned. That is a tough one to get anyone to do but it definitely prolongs the life of the string on the bow. I would set you up with broad heads, typically a three blade broadhead then I would take you around the corner to the shooting lane and I would show you proper technique, what to look for in your anchor points, muscle tension in your hand and then sighting the bow for windage on the left and right.
