Well for hunting "DEERE" about the only thing that would work would be a Ford or a New Holland. If you meant "DEER" then I personally use and am very happy with the Darton Maverick and the Reflex line of bows are good also. But there are a great number of very good bow options out there from different bow makers , and each has their crowd of loyal vocal followers. As for places--all the larger places (Cabelas, Gander Mountain, , Bear Paw, etc.) can really help set you up. Also, there are lot's of archery shops that can do a bang up job as well. Mouldys Archery and Tackle over in Chippewa Falls WI is a place like that which I have used with great satisfaction. Good luck in your pursuit whether you end up with a new Ford with a grain combine or if you end up with a new Nugent Nugebow Compound to strike whitetails!
Not since pre college days. Grew up on the farm for the most part. Miss it in alot of ways---may try to move back in that direction at some point. I only manage some acreage for whitetails at this time. But if you are making it work my hat's off to you and you certainly deserve respect for what you have done. It's been tough for farming in a lot of ways over the last decade or so.
