Default accessories

I got my first paycheck and now have some money to actually put into my bow. I have an older bow but it will still work for hunting. I am more interested in accessories. I most likely need a new rest so are there any suggestions with that (the old one appears to be just a piece of rubber that comes out of the bow). I have no stablizer and i am not sure if i need one, so are they helpful and if so what one would you suggest. I have old iron pin sight (rather rusty) so i may need a new one so any suggestions on sights. I already have a quiver that will work and a release. I still need broadheads and will most likely get muzzy's or slick tricks. Can anyone think of anything else i would need.

If the riser is not cut-out your only option for a rest is one with a cushion plungerI believe.

You might need a new string on the bow and a good peep sight. A Fletcher trupeep is pretty cheap and works very well. I recommend either the 3/16" or 1/4" for hunting.

There are a lot of great sights out there. That becomes more of a preference for what you get. I'd recommend one with a gang adjustment for the vertical and horizontal adjustment though. Moving individual pins left to right is a pain.

Stabilizer wise a simple doinker will work. The limbsaver modular stabilizers are good too.
