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:

You will waste more money through mail order than you will ever save by buying local, especially starting out. Once you've been into the sport awhile, you can catch deals on odds and ends.
Yes, it can be pricey to start out, but you dont have to have the latest and greatest to kill a deer. Part of what you are paying for is the knowledge that you have access too and often tuning and set up are included when you buy. Look at some of the used models that folks have traded in and shoot the bow before you buy it, that's something you can't do with mailorder.
