    Archery Shop in the Lower Mainland?

    Going to be picking up a compound bow shortly. Where should I take it in to get set up? I've never owned a compound before and don't want to go to a big box store.

    Wayne at 'Big Game archery' in Abbotsford is very knowledgeable and good. He has a shop
    in his basement.

    Is Boorman Archery in New West still there? I used to spend lots of my paper route money there.

    I'm not a big fan of Boormans. Maybe its just me but I never got along with the gal in there. Not the best customer service IMO. I'll be going to Wayne's from now on.

    Yeah boormans is still in new west. I bought my first bow, a pse nighthawk, there. Never had a problem with the staff personally. They have a pretty good trade in program. Their indoor range is usually pretty quiet early during weekdays and is... 20 meters I think. Decent enough prices on arrows and everyone who works there is a fountain of knowledge.

    I would definitely give Lucian a try at Just Shootin Arrows. Have had a great experience there, and if he doesnt have something in youre interested in he wull most likley get it in for you.

    Just Shooting Arrows is great. They set me up at their Surrey Shop.
    Boormans is terrible. I will never step foot in that store again.
