What should I know before buying a hunting bow?

How to Buy a Hunting Bow

There are four types of hunting bows: traditional wooden, fiberglass, compound, and recurve. Hunters usually start with a compound and move up to a fiberglass or recurve bow. The correct hunting bow size is relative to the hunter's height. Below 5'6” requires a 64” bow, below 5'10” uses a 66” bow, everyone else uses a 68” or 70” bow.
