Talking A 4 bow year?

I was sold on the PSE axe 6 a few months ago. a phenomenal bow in all respects. I just could not decide on tree stand camo or black satin.

I finally decided on both. I told the store owner to order one of each in 70# flavor.

Now, I think I am done buying bows for a while.

Sounds like you should be set on bows for awhile. What stinks is in 3 years you will think your bow is outdated and want to buy another one.

Got a call from pro shop today. He said PSE is not shipping 2010s any longer. only thing available in the future would be 2011s.

Just for G&G's. I called another shop, they were out of Axe 6s, but they said they could still order the bows.

I went on to PSE-archery.com and added a bow to my cart and started the check out process. no indication that they would not process the order and ship the bow, even came up.

Not liking what I am thinking. deer season comes and the bows get scarce. something is wrong with that logic.

Looked at the new dream season EVO bow for 2011 (the new catalog is out).
Guess I will hold off till the deer / turkey show in Madison, WI this winter.

Default The black axe

Availability being what it is, I settled for a black axe 6 in 60#.

picked up the Axe 6 last Saturday. did a most basic setup to get it shooting and sighted in for 20yds with field points. I probably wont get it out in the field during the next 3 weeks as I know what my primary bow is capable of and how its sighted in. and I still have a lot of shooting to do under different conditions before I will feel comfortable hunting with it.

I find it kind of scary too that people would buy a bow so close to archery deer season; it takes practice to be 100% confident that you are going to be able to take an ethical shot.

I've bought bows mid-season, and dialed them in with a short practice session. Confidence comes with knowing YOUR abilities. The equipment can change and you can still be successful.
I start off at 20 yards and sling a few arrows. Check the results. Adjust the sites accordingly and repeat. After I'm dialed in at 20,and getting consistent groups, I'll step back to 30 yards and repeat the process.
If I'm using a multi-pin site, I'll leave the 20 yard pin in place and adjust the next one, till it's on at 30 yards. Repeat for the 40 yard pin.
Once I feel good with the accuracy, I swap out the feild points for my practice broadheads and repeat the whole process..20 yards, 30 yards, 40 yards, and make any small adjustments as I go.

Know your equipment. Be comfortable in your abilities.

Why did I change bows? One time was when my bow got ripped off.
And the other time was when my buddy left for a new job in Florida, and sold all his gear and I got a great deal on a better bow.
