Default starting out

just getting started...found a shop that wanted to sell me a hoyt bow (forgot which one) at 499...but was looking more toward a pse stinger....would i be better off getting the more expensive bow or is the pse just as good for 200 less....to be used mostly for hunting also should i get one pre set up for a store ....or maybe the cheaper bow with better accessories...one more question i am left eye dominant but right handed....should i shoot left or right...never shooting a bow will it matter....thanks

man i would pick the bow that felt the best. shoot both of them and see which one "just feels better". which eye do you use to look down a scope? use the same eye for your bow.

Most high dollar bows are more for tournament often. There some low cost bows that can harvest any game. Get what fits your budget and feels good to you.

A PRO quality shop will want your business and do it properly. They will measure your DL and DW. Let them know what your price point is and they can start you out from there. When I first bought a bow, I bought a RTS kit. 3 months later, I knew that i wanted to upgrade the accesories on it already. Put the money in the bow first. then the accesories. That's what I've learned. If the shop doesn't want to adjust bows so that you can try them, Move on to another shop. They don't deserve you money and time. Don't buy a bow unless you tried it and you liked it. I acutually know 2 places that won't let you actually test fire bows, So i invest my money in other shops.Take a look at the PSE Bow madness bows, They are mainline bows but are smooth and great shooters. Just my 2 cents.
