    the nova oc.... how old are you, height ect........... If you can draw 60lbs. get the 70lb. bow. that way you can turn it down to 60lbs. if 60lbs is alittle tough.... go with 60lb one. also can turn down to 50lbs. you will need to know draw length.if you dont know. go to a shop and get measured up...
    good luck!!

    unless you can reach your toes without bending over then you are NOT a 30" draw. Most people that shoot a 30" draw are close to or over 6' (generally speaking).

    At 5 foot 3 you are probably about a 26 inch draw.

    If all you are intrested in is killing some yotes then why not use the recurve? Most Coyotes are relatively small compared to game animals and will go down without much trouble... if you can find them and get them in range.

    I would say if there are that many and they are really killing off all the cats then why not just poison the bastards?

    Another vote for the Diamond Edge. The 2008 package is $299, so you can probably find a 2007 for $250.
