Cheaper then dirt.com has bows for decent price and could find decent setup. Or I can see if I have a bow you can get started with, its bare for the most part just buy accessories and build it up.

Almost all new bows shoot great. Best to pick one up and see how it feels in your hand. As a beginner i would suggest something with a large valley. Depends on cash flow really but i think you can get a decent package around 400-500 dollars.

go to a good bow shop and shoot a bunch. You will find one that's right for you by feel.
I agree. You can get a thousand different answers here, but your best bet is a good archery shop. I wouldn't suggest a Cabelas or dicks either. Go to a place like targeteers that deal specifically in archery equipment and have an indoor range you can practice. Good luck!

Went to targeteers saturday. They are good. I am gonna go back soon to see what they have. I have a Golden Eagle in my garage I have been shooting but I am borrowing it. Hopefully I can find something that fits me.

Going to a pro shop for your first bow is a must to really enjoy the sport. Once you gain experience you will have the knowledge to possibly set up your own bow but it is critical that you are set up properly at the beginning.
