Default 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?
