comptekcs Been getting into archery as a local park has free classes and shooting days twice a week.

The instructors recently said i should get my own bow... An instructor was showing a few of us regulars a different shooting style than they teach which he called "bow hunting" style - man did i take to that.

He was surprised that switching that style, using the class bows, I was able to hit playing cards within 10 shots. Says I might have a natural talent???

Anyway - now which bow to chose...
Stay with recurve
go to compound
shoot the new smaller compounds with the wrist/trigger release - more consistent but could be prone to the distance adjustments going offspec or your trigger breaking/left in the Jeep
Get the longer compound bow and finger release - unless you REALLY bounce around in the Jeep you don't have to worry about your brain not working but would take longer to master and not be as consistent due to fingers vs trigger

Medixtj01 What broad heads do you guys shoot? I have some old spitfires but I just shot one of them so I'm down to 2. Lookin at the spitfire maxx or the grim reaper whitetail special. What are y'all's thoughts?

Nice bow my husband is looking at the chill r he has never shot a bow but thats about change :-)

muddypaws Just got my new Matthews Jewel on order. Especially being a female best bow out there plus it was time to upgrade my old 90sFeathermax. Getting my son a mission still made by Matthews he is really starting to enjoy shooting which just adds more excitement for me. Hopefully he will be ready for his first buck this season.

Jeeplover1 Bear hunting with a bow... Take big balls lol. And i want to hog hunt and turkey hunt with mine this year

JeepDrum I always shot a little bit here and there when i went to my Uncle's house growing up. I just got my first bow a little over a year ago now. It's a PSE Brute X and I love it. I haven't taken it hunting yet, but i plan to next fall. I never made time to get my license this year. Until then, I'll just keep working with targets.
02-27-2014 12:32 AM
muddypaws You will get one :-) my dad has a few we use the rugs for baby pictures. Since moving to Nm haven't hunted :'( it was easier in TX to get tags

Nothing like bow hunting. 2012 had a bear tag...something about hunting an animal that could er would EAT you, with a stick and string. I had a sow at 12 yds full draw and her damn yearly cub sticks his head up...ugh! Next year!

fatmanny1901 Oh man I haven't shot in a long time. I just have a little Marten Phantom II. Had it for quote a few years, though I've never taken it hunting. I never seem to have the time

muddypaws Nice bow :-) wish you many good hunts with that baby

Its a PSE full throttle shoots 370fps fastest compound ever made. 40 yrds is nothing for this bow. Its almost as fast as a crossbow

IME, the stickbows I've shot *could* benefit from them but just plain shoot better/more intuitively out of the box, even without them. BTW, I shoot bare bow/instinctively: NO SIGHTS. I can, and have shot targets out to 80 yds. I will not attempt an animal beyond 30 yds; my ethics, my limits. (Not preaching). I'd like very much to get another stickbow. And to my surprise, my son prefers stickbows over compounds. He's shot both and came to that conclusion on his own. If I hit the lottery, I'm going to hook him up, and me, too! YMMV, and invariably will...
