It is nothing to spend $800 or even $1,000 on a bow and another $500 on accessories and arrows. Fortunately, you don’t need those high-dollar setups to kill just about anything that walks on this planet.Today’s bargain bows were yesterday’s barnburners. Just five to 10 years ago, the highest-performance bows on the market were on level with the budget bows of today. They were fast enough and accurate enough then to grab headlines and make us yearn to buy one.

The deer and elk haven’t changed, so if that level of performance was top shelf back then, you can be sure it is still more than adequate for effective bowhunting today

Sure, buying the latest and greatest gear is fun. But it is not always practical and definitely not necessary. If you shop carefully in today’s market you can piece together everything you need to upgrade your current setup, or get into the sport from ground zero, with a budget from $400-$700.
