Been Thinking

Been thinking about trying to buy a new bow again, hopefully by next year I'll be able to get out there maybe even this fall.

It's amazing how advanced the bows are today. I use to shoot local tournaments when I was younger (20 years ago) and my bow was nothing like what's available today. The bows are much shorter and shoot way faster then what they did back then. The limb and cam technology is out of this world.

you can say that again. even 10 yrs ago with the old buckmaster. used to think those were pretty awesome.

but you know what an arrow dont have to be moving 300 fps to tag a deer. shoot, the Indians used to prob do it with a spear. i wonder how well we as hunters today would do if we used the tools of our ancestors?

think about it .the indians had a homemade bow and arrow they rode a horesbareback and shot deer and buffalo dead at a full gallop i doubt any of us could do it.when i was little i used to be the indian when we played cowboys and indians

Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

Shooting a deer from horseback with a bow and arrow? I would be lucky to do it with a gun! I am pretty certain I would fall off and get trampled. Indians have my respect
