    I would like to try a 3D shoot but I do not own my own bow nor do I intend to invest in one until I'm sure I really like it. Are there places to rent bows or are they otherwise available at the shoots? i don"t really know anyone i could borrow from

    Got any ideas???

    Do you know any other women or teenage boys that have bows and shoot 3D shoots? I would think that would be your best bet as far as finding a bow to shoot an entire course with.

    If not, check your yellow pages for archery shops. Call and see if they have any bow that might fit you that you could go and shoot. They might not let you "rent" them, but they should let you shoot them in the shop or maybe even outside at a 3D target if they have one.

    I've never heard of a place that rents archery equipment, but that doesnt mean they don't exist.

    I've never heard of renting either but I'm sure if you go to the proshops around you someone can hook you up with another woman who you can shoot with and use her bow. Only thing is make sure your dl is the same. Do not force yourself to shoot a bow that does not fit you correctly as this will cause you problems.

    Bowman has a great suggestion here also if you can meet up with him and brokenarrow and the guys. They probably shoot with some ladies and may find someone willing to allow you to shoot around with their bow. I hope you find someone that can help because archery is truly an awesome sport to get involved in. Best of luck to ya and remember to have fun.:peace:

    Shoot your Matthews dude. All you need is a adjustable sight or a couple pins.
