A bow for the wife

I would like to reach out to the ladies on here to ask for some help. My wife has expressed a desire to begin archery shooting/hunting with me. I couldn't be happier but I dont have any idea what type of bow to get her. All the stores are run by men who have no idea how to fit a lady. If anyone shoots/hunts with a bow can you tell me what brands / models work best for you ? I'm not looking for the latest/greatest models but I want her to have something that is enjoyable to shoot and will last a few years. I am hoping to keep the bow under $500.

Any advice is appreciated.

My wife shoots a Bowtech Carbon Rose. It’s a light weight, well balanced bow, made specifically for lady bow hunters. They’ve been out for a few years so there should be some out there in your price range.

My girlfriend has been shooting a diamond infinite edge pulling 52 pounds at 25”. This past season was her third year archery hunting and she has killed a deer with it each year. The draw weight and draw length are both super adjustable. When she first started practicing we had it set at 38lbs and she worked her way up to 52 in 4 months. Having said that, I’m in the market for a “higher end” bow for her now.

I will second the Diamond. I have an Edge SB-1. Diamond has a number of bows that have a wide range of adjustment for both draw weight and length.

Mathews Passion

There has been an ad on and off for a Mathews Passion (fully rigged) for a very reasonable price on Craig's List. I believe that it must be a shop ad because they advertise other rigs from time to time. I believe it is in the Brownsville area. Check the sporting category for details..
