Santa Fe Archery would be the closest to you, but i like West Houston Archery. They seem to be more knowledgeable.

I used to go to Santa Fe archery, not sure how it is now or if it is still open.

Santa Fe archery is legit. Selection isn't huge but there's a good, knowledgeable and helpful crew there. I bought my first recurve from them and they went way far and beyond what I paid to help get me setup.

If you feel like driving to Dayton area you can go to Triple Edge on 146.

Santa Fe Archery is under new ownership. Big John will fix you up.

Any advice on budget to get a good entry set up? Doing some research it looks like $600-$800?

You should be able to do that. Don't get a package deal without a drop away rest or you'll just be spending another $100 next month.

I haven't been to Santa Fe Archery in awhile. I was always willing to make the 45 minute drive, when I needed to have work done on my bow. Glad to hear that they're still providing good service, since the change in ownership

Cool!! Don't let anybody at a shop sale you on a particular bow though unless YOU like it. Shoot a bunch and buy the one that feels the best to you and that you shoot the best. Doesn't matter if it's the cheapest bow you shoot or the most expensive. Good luck!!

Bit of a thread bump but Santa Fe Archery is now out of business. I went there a few weeks ago and they had shut up shop. Most probably already knew but for those who didnít, I wanted to share.

This looks like a pretty good deal for $200.
