new bowhunter

My husband and I have both just started shooting bows. With that said we are still learning, sometimes the hard way...lol! It seems that everywhere archery shop that we go to tells us something different. Example- the length of the arrow. We had one shop set us up and then went to another to get arrows and that shop said that his arrows were 3 inches too long. ??? Plus the couple of shops that we have gone to come across as kind of snobby that we don't know......especially with me being a woman. We have been going to 3D shoots and i really like it, but dealing with these shops are really leaving a bad taste. We live in the Berks county area. We have found Woody's to be pretty good, but still not overly welcoming. Any suggestions on archery shops?

Re: new bowhunter

I grew up less than a mile from Woody's. I the 20+ years I have been going there I have never had a "welcoming" experience. Whenever I walk in there it seems like I am bothering them by being in there and they watch your every move like you are going to steal something from them. I stopped going there in college when I had other options of sports shops while I was at school. There is a small archery shop near Fritztown rd. in Sinking Spring area. Never been there, but have heard good things.

Kinsey's is worth the drive !
Great people
they have set up bows for my entire family, including the kids boy and girl friends
Won't go anywhere else to have bow work done

Life's too short to hunt with an ugly dog!
If it's locked up and put away - Your NOT safe!

Re: new bowhunter

Thank you for the suggestions! I tend to get the same feeling when going to Woody's ...we are always up for a road trip!
