Oh yes you will need a bow. A good bow shop will help you make that decision. Also that new bow will have to be set up for you. The bow professional at the shop will help you with that. You can't just pull a bow off the shelf and shoot it. (Well you can, but thats not the way to do it right.). If you are in Baton Rouge, I highly reccomned Bowie Outfitters. They can help you pick one out, set it up, cut you some arrows and teach you how to shoot it. There are 2 or 3 pro's there. They can also tell you about the different oppertunities in the area to shoot 3-d and tournaments. Those are real fun. They give you something to do while it isn't hunting season. I live on the west side of the MS river in Baton Rouge, and I wouldn't even by a bag of ice from Spillway Sportsman. That girl that works there is very knowledgeable and nice, but she can only do so much. I met her when she worked at Bass Pro Shop. She is a gun guru. However the bow department is lacking. Good luck. Have fun. Be glad Obama hadn't said a thing about taking our arrows yet.
