I did but i wasnt able to use a peep sight.
However when you use the same anchor point to the side of your face the alignment stays true still making the use of a compound style sight usable

The bow comes with attachment points for a sight - just like a normal compound bow. However, I do not recomend the use of a sight. Recurve bows are best used without sights for more reflexive or instinctive shoting. A recurve is much more useful and versatile when not hindered by a sight. Shoot the bow until you're able to operate without a sight. Ususally 100-200 shots. You'll like it much better without one - but if you must, a sight can be mounted.

Question

What type of arrows and additional equipment should I get with this?

I have been out of bow hunting for awhile and what to get back into it. I want to go traditional and start as cheap as I can until I get the feel again. Is this a good starter and what all should I buy with this? Arrows, quiver and such.

get a quiver, a springy arrow rest and string silencers and I recommend shooting with tabs. But my real advice is, if you didn't buy the bow yet, save your money and get a Bear Grizzly or a PSE Kudo. I had the Jaguar and had issue's twice with the limbs breaking.

I'm learning archery, and love this bow! I got the 40lb draw weight. I bought Beman 500 arrows, field point arrow heads, bow stringer, target, quiver and an armguard.

First you need to check your state hunting regs and make sure the bow poundage is adequete for the game you will be hunting as well as the size of your broad head. Next arrows are determined by your bow poundage and your draw length. If you want to stay traditional cedars are the way to go and some what limit the available broad heads.Aluminums and Carbons allow you a wider selection of broad heads as well as the ability to change to field tips for practice.Aluminums are are probabaly the most cost effective and durible.Just like with firearms and ammo try a couple of each and see which you like and shot the best for you.

This bow is tapped for sights - it shoots VERY well without one - so I'd figure it's nearly perfect for bowfishing.

I am wondering the same thing Bass Pro wont say and Martin doesnt say but the AMS seems to be compatible and you can get a strap mount 3rivers archery has more info. If not the cujun spool will thread right in. But the Martin should have pre tapped holes for sights

Yes. Both a front mounted reel or side mounted. I recommend the the AMS retreiver reel (less tangles). The AMS is more expensive but better quality.

answer 2
At 58" tall his eyes should be at approximately 52" (the approximate center of the bowline). Using a 60" bow would leave 20+inches clearance to the ground plane.
He should be able to learn and grow into the 30# bow for some years to come before he'll want to switch limbs of a heavier weight. Ethically it is considered best to hunt with only 40# or heavier rated bow.

you can leave it strung all day, but it is best to unstring it if not in use

answer 2
For this bow and other fiberglass backed bows it is safe to leave it strung while not using it. I have left fiberglass bows strung for over a year with no ill-effects. Just a thought though, a stringer is only $25 and it only takes about 15 seconds to string the bow.

there are three different draw weights 30#, 40# AND 50# but the weight is measured @ 28 inches so if you draw it further it will be more weight.
