I have bowhunted whitetail in NC for several years with a 10 yr old Buckmaster and I never shoot over 35 yds even though I can consistently hit a pie plate at 40 yds. I have not tried 50.

Now that I am starting to hunt out West I am thinking of upgrading my bow to extend my range out to 50-60 yds.

Here's the kicker: I almost always buy things used. So, what is the best used bow for Western bowhunting for under $400? I realize prices vary.

Also, what would you pay special attention to when checking out a used bow and is where is the best place to find them?
