Well, this is my first bow...my stepdad got it for me as a gift. It has a 45lb draw is the camo one and I am very happy as to having a new hobby. I guess my question is as a beginner what would you recommend for me to practice a lot in my back yard and eventually hunt with. Arrows, arrow rest, tips, good durable target, case, strings...I only got the bow bare no frills...also is this a good starter bow...

It's an excellent bow, and not just for starters. For a target I use just a simple bag target that can be found at most archery shops. The foam blocks from Wally Mart work well too. I would suggest a couple hay bales as a backstop. Field tips only! Broadheads will get tore up and dulled from target shooting and they're hell on your targets. For arrows, get them cut for you in whatever weight your local archery shops recommend. They should have multiple options as far as price and construction go. I recommend feathers over synthetic fletching as well. I can't suggest a rest as I don't use one. I will say that you need a decent shooting glove. I use a deer hide 3 finger glove. Any archery shop should have one. And just grab whatever flavor of quiver you like. Welcome to a great hobby.
