  1. Broad heads
  2. Arrows
  3. Targets
  4. Release
Broadhead... fixed style, I like slick trick. Expandable, I like Rage
Arrows...don't spend a lot on arrows for a beginner but don't go super cheap either.
Targets.. Bag style, Morell, Broadhead target get a Rinehart
Release.. Again don't go too cheap here. Spend $40-$70+

These items are personal preference and everyone will have a different opinion.

I hope this helps

My hubby used the adams broadheads this year and it left a giant hole and plus he will be able to reuse it. Also, you are less likely to cut yourself with them. Just so you know, don't shoot your broadheads at your targets unless you buy a target specially for that. Just get the same grain field points and shoot them when practicing.

[*]Broadheads : I use Slick Tricks standard and magnum 100 grain[*]Arrows : Take a look at Victory, Gold Tip and Carbon Express. They have some great arrows without spending alot to get you started.[*]Targets : I'm using a Morrel Yellow Jacket Bag target and has held up well[*]Releases : Depending if you want a wrist or thumb. Wrist Spot Hogg, Scott and Tru Ball. Thumb Spot Hogg, Carter and Tru Ball. If you go to a shop you might be able to try a few out and see what works best for you.

If you have any questions just ask and I will try and help you out.

First lets start with the release, as it will determine your draw length. Wrist strap caliper type, is what most use, shooting off a D loop , a D shaped loop of heavy duty nylon cord tied to your shooting string at the nocking point. which also shortens draw. A hand held adds almost 2 inches of draw for me, and I used a wrist strap with a short barrel. Find out which you prefer and then go with it.

Now you can get arrows. You'll need to know your draw length, once known determine shaft size, remember you want the broadhead out in front of your bow hand so add 1.75 " to your draw length, and thats the length you use to select size at your draw weight, For you , just begining, don't over bow your self. It takes practice to get good at this, so turn your bow down and get the less expencive arrows, a dozen will do, about $50-70. Believe me, 60# bows kill deer. Decide what point weight you want to shoot.

Broadheads; every bowhunter you talk to will have his/her own personal favorite, expandables tune easier, which bring up what rest you're goning to use, some are easier to tune than others. Tuning is the process of getting your arrow flying as straight as you can, also when tuned properly field points and broadhead hit the same point of aim

Targets, bags and blocks are portable. I prefer bags for field points, and use a block for broadheads. Most blocks are light and move when hit.
I hope this will help you get started in this great sport.
