Well With s 32 inch draw you can get much much more spped then 250!

I would recommend the Mathews Switchback LD! LD is for long Draw! Great bow and made just for the people with the extra couple inches on there arm. You should check it out!

He says he wants to spend about $250, You wont get a Matthews for that. Go to a local Archery Shop and have them fit you with the proper draw length. They can show you bows in your price range. Stay away from Cabelas and Bass Pro. They mostly have salespeople that aren't all that knowledgable.

I beg to differ! Im a assitant manager in Bass Pro. I know alot of bows and work on them everyday!

On another note, i didnt realize you wanted to SPEND $250 I thought you said speed! LOL

Good Luck my friend!

$250.00 isn't going to get you much. You might get a bow for that, but that won't do you any good considering that you will spend that much on sight, rest, arrows, and all other accessories for it, up your price and get a decent bow instead of a cheap one, it will be worth it in the end, cause if you ask anyone here, you will be hooked for life, even if you never kill a deer, just shootin is awesome.

with a 32 and 1/2
did a pro shop measure you for that ?
first thing i would do is go to a pro shop have them measure your draw . then go from their . Parker makes a bow called the hunter mag . you could find a used one for that price.

Ryan I am not disagreeing about what you do or don't know about bows. But there are plenty of guys who work in the archery dept. at the BPS in OKC who don't know their a**hole from their elbow. They can cut arrows but if you need any "real" advice your better off going to a pro shop.
