I'm considering this year to try and take up bowhunting for deer. I am pretty sure I can get to range of 50 yds., maybe less on the ones which frequent around here. From what I am gathering is that a compound bow is what I will want. Does anyone have suggestions for some particular models that would be best for price vs. performance, ease of learning to use with practice, and enough deer killing power....also best arrows to get both for practice and also for the hunt. Type of terrain is mixed brush/forest and well used trails and resting places I see deer, with open clearings. I don't think I'll use a tree stand, and probably more of a stlak or stand (and wait) method.
