Mail order archery equipment?

902 Views 5 Replies 5 Participants Last post by  Birdbrained
I would like to get in to archery but it's so expensive :cry: . I was considering buy my equipment from Cabela's because it's so much cheaper 8) but then you don't get the same service as if you bought it at an archery shop :cry: . Basically I was wondering what your opinions are on buying your equipment mail order.
Thanks. :wink:

It is best to go to a shop and talk with a qualified person about your needs. Handle different bows, draw them over (if they are not zip-tied), ask questions and have the salesman suggest 2 or 3 bows that would suit you in your price range. Then order one from Cabela's if the price is cheaper.

I have ordered arrows, sights and such from catalogs, but you really need to handle the bow you intend to purchase. You are correct, a good archery shop will "set you up" or tune your equipment (for a fee mind you), which is something I don't know if Cabela's can or will do for mail order.

For a first purchase, I would stick to a quailified shop.
