Hey all,

I finally got my girlfriend into guns now im wanting to take the leap and get a bow in her hand, Im wanting a decent price womens bow, and tips. I also would like some input, She is left handed yet does many things right handed ( like most people i know just due to not having left handed items as a child) should she bow hunt left or right handed? ( Im guessing taking her to a bow shop to get the feel of both would be the best idea, however knowing her she will say both feel fine)

    #1, Good for you to have a girlfriend interested. You hit the nail on the head about taking her to a shop.
    Have her figure out which eye of hers is dominant and then go from there. That will do away with her saying that both are fine.
    Good luck and happy shooting with the GF.

    Been with her for 5 years now, and she has never complained about my addiction to anything outdoors. Bought a mini 14 yesterday and she was just as excited as I was, made me finally wanna get her out with me with a bow aswell. Anyone with any bow model ideas?

    Just depends on the money your wanting to spend.
    ]I bought my son the PSE Stringer. It has something between a 7 1/2" to 8" brace height. It was close to $300. It is a very forgiving bow for the young or novice shooter. I'm sure though there are plenty of other good bows out there. Like I said earlier, taker her to a bow shop and let her shoot away.

    I got my wife a Mission X3 a few years ago. She loves the bow and shoots it well. I am not a big fan of the "women's bows" out there. There is no reason for a woman not to shoot the same bow as a man, it just needs to be fitted to them- just as a good pro shop would do for a man.

    +1 on figuring out which is her dominant eye. If she's right eye dom. it would be best that she shoot right handed and visa versa.
    I also agree with the others on just take to to a shop and let her find one that feels good and fits her. Glad you guys can share the excitement thats pretty awesome.
