Default Budget ILF hunting rig

I'm looking to get a budget ILF hunting rig. I have some experience with ilf in the past, couldn't get into it then but willing to give another go. Looking for a bow/riser/limb to be 62-64" pulling 48# to 52#, I have 26.5" draw. Thanks for the help

Not to forget warfs. The best bang for your ilf- buck, and then some.

For example:

They were out of Ghosts when I looked today. Still have Ghost limbs but limited weights.

Can confirm they’re out of Ghosts, ordered the riser and 30# limbs for a backyard shooter. Two days ago and waiting for June 4th so they can ship it.

Are you looking for metal or wood?

With such a draw length you could easily go to a shorter bow and get a tad better performance.
15" riser and short or medium limbs.

Samick Discovery Riser, but some second hand limbs ...
I built one ... it’s a fine riser with some spray painted cheap 2nd hand SF limbs

Yes, a shorter riser would not go amiss. 17" or 15".
There's a 17" Tribe riser on Ebay.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Tribe-Arche...temCondition=4

Also a 15" Das
