any old bow you won't mind getting muddy, bloody, wet or slimy. And 50# or lighter. And long enough to comfortably shoot with fingers.

Good advice.

Also, at least 30# draw, and prefer bows with accessory mounting holes for sights and stabilizers because that is how you attach your reel, unless you will be using a hand wound spool that gets taped to the bow.
