View Full Version : Need an honest opinion for a bow & arrow product being sold

Dear Fellow Hunters,

Just recently, I have found this site: http://www.gamelandz.com while I was searching for the best bow and arrow equipment. From their classifieds section: http://www.gamelandz.com/sr_classifieds.php?do=ad&id=8 I saw this Chaparral Kaibab that costs $275.00. Is this the best bow & arrow equipment suited for a newbie hunter like me? I registered from their site since members got the chance to win great gears and post items you want to sell to co-hunters. That is why I found out about the bow & arrow item for sale.

I need opinions from expert hunters here if the item sold from that site is the best so far. From your point of views, I can decide if I will buy that hunting gear. I am just a sophomore in this field and wanted it to be one of my hobbies. I was thinking of venturing in other fields such as fishing, sport shooting, archery and other outdoor events.

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

Best regards.

Hello Youngblood and Welcome to our site !!! http://www.huntingchat.net/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/icon_cool.gif
I have been Bow Hunting for more than 30 years now and the best advice that I can give you is that you need to find ya a archery Pro Shop close to your home. The purchase of Archery Equiptment is much more complex than say going out and buying a gun. Even tho with a gun you still need to find one that fits "You" correctly a Bow on the other hand is much more critical. Thats where the Professional talent of the people at your local Pro Shop come into play. They will measure you for correct fit and help you with any and all questions or problems that you may face with your shooting. Trust me it may look as tho your getting a real deal from that mail order place but you cannot put a price on hands on help that you will recieve from the Archery Pro Shop.
Good Luck with your New purchase and I hope for your sake that you heed my advice because I would hate to see you waste your hard earned $$$ on something that doesn&#39;t fit you and then you become frustrated and give up Bow Hunting altogether http://www.huntingchat.net/forums/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/icon_wink.gif

great advise 4x4. Youngblood, once you get equipment that fits you, you will be grouping like the pro`s. I have helped 2 friends of mine get into some fairly inexpensive bows and releases and within no time, they were shooting good enough that I thought they were ready to go hunting.

welcome youngblood..that is a very nice bow at a nice price.but also what the others said.....you need to shoot. and another thing, i believe that the bow you have listed here is too much weight for someone who is starting out in the sport.
