I'll play...

I shoot a Browning Striker that is 9 years old now. Currently equipped with whisker rest and I got a new set of sights this year, but can't remember who makes it. Also use a ~1970 model fiberglass recurve. Using G5 montec broadheads with both.

just getting a feel for what people prefer to shoot. i have noticed on some of the other forums i'm on, it seems to be a regional thing, on preferences of bow hunting equipt. not trying to be to nosy.

pse x-force. biscuit and hot dot sight (primary set up) set at 64lbs. or a pse vengeance with biscuit and cobra 5 pin sight i think set at 64lbs. my arrow is a carbon force pro 200 cut to 29 inches and pushing a 85gr montec G5 and 2" blazers vanes. out of the x-force my hunting arrow is going 326fps out of the vengeance 284fps. i'm on the long side so i get a boost in ft per sec.

that x-force is SMOKIN. how does the biscuit work in the cold wet, weather?

yea its fast. breaks arrows pretty easy. no problems with the biscuit although i am thinking about a fall away type. the hot dot is a bit of a problem. got to carry a battery and screw driver with you. it goes through batteries pretty quick. for me about 3 per season. and rain on the film can distort the view. on the plus side its no problem seeing the "pin" during low light.

i used a biscuit for awhile. was doing alot of 3-d shoots. and would wear out the biscuits. being left -handed, nobody around here would stock, replacement biscuits. i went with limb driver, drop away. enjoy it very much. i do notice my shooting did improve after changing. that and re-tuning my bow after the change.

I don't have one yet, but just shot a bow for the first time today at Bass Pro Shops. I was killing time waiting for the local mall to open up. I think that was a mistake shooting that bow because now I'm trying to figure out how to get the funds together to buy one. That was fun and I can see how it can become addicting!!

now imagine a getting yourself in position to have a deer at 20 yards, be able to draw, and deal with all the factors to place that arrow in the crease. got to love bow hunting. plus the season is a long one.

Archery is up close and personal. You have played the game, read the sign, played the wind, and got it all right. This to me is what hunting is ALL about!:thumbup:
