    Default a question from a rookie bow user

    Recently bought a bear white tail 2, and from the pics there is the old school sights (looks like 3 bullets). havent received the bow yet, but am just wandering if i can buy a new sight for this bow, and if so if anyone here recommends any specific type that will fit this bo or the best sight for a beginner. thanks

    You should have no problems at all. It will have two vertical threaded holes on the riser, that most sights will fit.

    Since your bow is relatively inexpensive - don't put a lot of money into the sight. Usually you can get a fairly good inexpensive one for less than $80.

    5 pins.

    Now this is one thing I disagree with. Because a sight and other accessories can be moved from bow to bow in the case he upgrades I recommend buying as good a sight as his budget can handle.

    Got my first bow kill with a Whitetail 2. I had a 3 pin Cobra sight set at 10, 20 & 30 yards. I would suggest a more modern sight with wrapped fiber optic pins. Most manufacturers make a decent one these days. I would also suggest finding a bow shop that knows how to work on these and get your draw length set. I hunted with a 450 grain arrow and Thunderhead broadheads. If you're going to shoot off the arrow shelf instead of using an arrow rest, you will want feathers. Have fun.
