Jeep's and Archery
 
Any jeepers that love Archery and shooting bows? I just bought the new PSE full throttle! Its sexy as hell!!!

muddypaws 01-24-2014 10:28 PM

All of my deer and my hog were bow kills!!!

muddypaws 01-24-2014 10:29 PM

Although personally I'm a Matthews girl

Tarless 01-24-2014 10:32 PM

Recurve guy here. Though I don't have a jeep yet.

muddypaws 01-24-2014 10:35 PM

Nice. I've never shot recurve. Id like to though

muddypaws 01-24-2014 10:36 PM

I didn't have my Jeep when i first came here either but it has been an excellent resource both before and after getting her

Jeeplover1 01-24-2014 10:44 PM

Recurve is a challenge for sure! My wife shoots a Pse revenge

Tarless 01-24-2014 10:46 PM

seems jeeps and bows just go together. The bug hit me just recently. Now I'm obsessing over them. I do allot of stuff that a small convertible just doesn't accommodate. I was planning on getting my hunting license and though a pick-up would be ideal a jeep with a hitch is second best.
archery is awesome!

Tarless 01-24-2014 10:48 PM

A compound is the logical way to go but I got this purist thing goin' on.
This boar hunting with spears has really got me intrigued.

curt68 01-24-2014 10:50 PM

shoot a hoyt now since i was 25....want a bowtech now. almost all deer kills with a bow

muddypaws 01-24-2014 10:53 PM

Boar hunting with spears now that could be fun and my Jeeps a convertible Lol

muddypaws 01-24-2014 10:54 PM

PSE has some really nice bows too

muddypaws 01-24-2014 11:57 PM

PSEs are nice too:)

I shoot Matthews and my wife shoots bear. I've been shooting since age 15, most of my deer kills are with a bow except a few. Got my wife into it 2 years ago. She's a natural, but hasn't stuck a deer yet. Waiting for the right one!

muddypaws 01-26-2014 02:44 AM

My dad started me at 4 i only 3 bucks and 1 hog all bow kills. Sadly haven't been hunting for a while

Yeah sounds like last hunting season for us. Didn't make time for it like we should have. Defiantly will be in the woods more this coming season.

Sounds like my story. My wife hit one this year but lost blood trail

That's never good at all! My family has 450+ acres and it's hard to keep tresspassers off and poachers away. I spent most of the year walking to my stands and finding guys in climbers on my way. After gun season I ran off 4 guys in just a few days. Our 2 target bucks were killed. Both on our neighbors land so they say. It makes hunting like a job around here.

I've shot A LOT of bows (there is a archery shop within walking distance) and bowtechs are by far my favorite. So far my favorite is the Invasion. I have even met the family that founded the company. Great people.

OlYellerTJ 01-26-2014 10:53 PM

I cut my teeth on stick bows and cedar arrows. I once made a few arrows and a string, just 'cuz I could. ;-)

I currently have a Hoyt compound but would rather have another stick bow. I MUCH prefer carbon shafts over cedar, now. And, my son wants a stick bow. How the H*LL did that happen? :-D

If you can shoot a stick bow, you can shoot. YMMV, and invariably will...

Jeeplover1 01-27-2014 01:11 AM

Stick bow? Recurve?

curt68 01-27-2014 01:26 AM

ive hunted with bear, darton, PSE and HOYT. my first hoyt cracked a limb. sent it back and they had stopped building that bow. they gave me more in trade in than i had originally paid for it. i traded up and got a spectra fast flite hunter (circa 1993) killed several animals with that bow. then i moved to tx. YA!!! unless your a rich man or marry into a family with land you cant hardly afford to hunt here. had one spot i was hunting on (oil company land) but when they pulled out, the land owner was afraid his cattle were going to be dead with arrows in them!!! now im not a 100yr seasoned bowhunting veteran, but im pretty sure i can distinguish between a deer and cattle!!! anyway, i havent hunted down here in years. just started hunting again last year when got invited to go on several dove hunts. i really forgot what i was missing. sometimes, during hunting seasons, i talk to my buddies back home in KS and really miss the hunting!!!
Sorry for the rant!!! :censored:

2. an instrument resembling this, used for various purposes, as rotating a drill or spindle, or loosening entangled or matted fibers.
3. a bend or curve.
4. Also called bowknot. a looped knot composed of two or more loops and two ends, as for tying together the ends of a ribbon or string.
5. any separate piece of looped, knotted, or shaped gathering of ribbon, cloth, paper, etc., used as a decoration, as on a package, dress, or the like.

I was asking what a stickbow was.. Is it the same as recurve?

OlYellerTJ 01-28-2014 08:45 PM

"Stickbow" is slang for any traditional type of bow. It is a (fancy) stick with a string: longbow, recurve, composite, et c. A stickbow is not a compound or cross bow (no cams, eccentrics or stocks).
