    My wife is interested in a bow. My bow experience is limited to way back in the day standard bows. Any suggestions for reasonable cost bow for a woman that, SHTF we can drop a deer if needs be?

    Samick sage takedown recurve. Under $150.
    You can swap out the limbs for different weights. 30lbs up to 65lbs.
    Comes predrilled so you can ad quiver, sights, fishing reel, etc.

    The bear ready to hunt bows are nice and all set up ready to go.
    You can go to archery world or some place like that and test a few different kinds.

    Mission Craze by Mathews! Compact, easily adjustable, wide weight of pull range. powerful! Relatively inexpensive!

    PS: At some point I intend to get a takedown recurve with extra strings, etc

    Get her a diamond infinite edge, it's what my wife shoots, I'm a bow snob and I'd shoot it! It goes from a 15lb draw all the way up to 70lb so you could drop an elk with it
