Question ID: 565458
I need some help with the best "brand" names of bows used by women for
hunting big game. I find much more information for men, but there is a
big difference in size of bows and brands just for women. I have
hunted for over 20 years with a rifle. I am about to buy a bow for a
deer and elk hunt and I need some advice on what to do buy. Can you

Howdy chamahunter-ga,

A good start is to look at the bows that are being used (and very
successfuly at that) by women to hunt big game.

The WomenHunters.Org ("For Women, About Women, By Women") has a great
"Compound Bow Tropies" page.

[Brenda Valentine] took this kudu June 1, 2005 while on safari in the
Limpopo Province of South Africa ... Parker Micro-Phoenix bow, Carbon
Supreme arrows and Simmons broadheads.  He went less than 75 yards.
The bull sported 53 1/2 inch horns and weighed around 800 lbs."

Some of the brands and models mentioned on that page and within the
stories off that page follow.

Parker Compound Bows

"Since it's inception, Parker Compound Bows has maintained a dedication
and passionate commitment to create the finest hunting bows available,
supported by outstanding customer service."

The Parker "Micro Phoenix"

"The only parallel limb bow designed specifically for women and youth

The Parker "Extreme Ultra-Lite 31"

"The bow's extreme light-weight, short length and blazing speed make
the Extreme Ultra-Lite 31 the perfect bow for any serious bowhunter."

PSE Archery

"PSE, as the industry's leading manufacturer, holds twenty patents
for bow design and archery products."

Their line of compounds bows can be found here.


"The number one selling compound bow in the world"


The Triton NRG One-Cam has a heavy (50#) pull so that should be taken
into account, but it is lightweight.


"Provides years of archery adventures with one great bow!"

Renegade Bows

"You can outfit a state-of-the-art Renegade bow with all the bells and
whistles, yet still not equal the cost of the bows from other companies."

Renegade SX-5

"Any hunter. Any situation. The new SX-5 has the design to provide
unmatched flexibility. Its 31 1/2 axle length makes it ideal for
everyone from the beginning youth, to women, to professionals."

Browning Archery

"Browning Archery, manufacturer of high quality compound bows and
accessories ..."

Browning Micro Adrenaline XS

From the press release on the Browning Micro Adrenaline XS.

"These bows also need to be light weight, easy to carry and aim, while
reducing fatigue. The ideal bow should have a grip tailored to fit
smaller hands. Now, blend good arrow speed with these characteristics
and you have a bow that will serve a shooter for many years."

Browning MICRO MIDAS 3

But, with all things such as these, the best thing is to head to
your local archery store, if one is near, and try out as many bows
as you can.  People's tastes in bows, just as in rifles, can be
very particular.

If you need any clarification, please feel free to ask.

Search strategy:

Google search on: used OR recommend "by women" bowhunting

PSE has a great archery message forum and I looked through there for
specific suggestions.
