What is your favorite bow and why is it? also what hunting memories or stories
i dont have a story wet so i want to hear yours
I have only had three bows but the first two were most special.The first one was one i found in my great great uncles garage. I cleaned and fixed it and started shooting. I was 10 and it was a lightweight recurve. I could barely hit the target but i felt like i was a king when shooting it. Bow nuber 2 was an old Fred Bear compound form the 70's. My dads friend gave it to me shortly after the recurve broke becuase he wanted someone to use it. I had 4 pin sight and was accurate(meaning i was within a couple of inches from aiming point) out to about 25 yards. Becuase of the age of the bow it was noisy and unfit for hunting. Thats why recently i upgrade to a Hoyt kobalt which is a new high tech youth bow with topnotch Hoyt performance. i have been hunting with this, i have not killed anythging but are raring to. deer season's almost over so im thinking cyotes, squirrells or something,
I have had two "real" bows in my life. First was a PSE "DeerHunter." It was a 40 lb bow with a 3-pin sight, whisker biscuit arrow rest, and some kind of generic stabilizer. It shot well, but I outgrew it in only one season. I upgraded this summer to a 2009 Diamond "The Rock." At 50 lbs. I use a QAD UltraRest, a TruGlo 3-pin sight, 7" Octane stabilizer, and a Scott release. I can shoot real well with this bow and got my first bow deer with it in October. My favorite of the two bows is by far the Diamond, just because I can shot it better and I have more memmories with it. It's a really nice bow, but Diamond stopped making them for some reason.
MY FAVORITE CHOICES WOULD BE PSE AND DIAMOND. I CURRENTLY AM SHOOTING A PSE DAKOTA I BOUGHT 6 YEARS AGO AND ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT. I AM CONSIDERING UPGRADING TO A DIAMOND BLACK ICE. NO MONEY FOR THAT RIGHT NOW. BUT UNLESS SOMETHING MUCH MUCH BETTER COMES OUT IN 2010 I WILL PROBABLY BE GETTING THE BLACK ICE NEXT YEAR (2011)
The PSE stinger. For the ready to shoot package its 420$ (at my cabelas in PA at least) and you can't beat it for the money
PSE X-Force Dream Season. I love this bow for a few reasons. It's the fastest 7" brace height by far. And with the 7" brace height, it is very forgiving, not to mention smooth. Add a phantom drop away, spot-hogg hog-it, 7" doinker, vibracheck backstop, radial X-weave preadators, and rage 2 blades, and you have a killing machine. Not a single animal I have shot at has gotten out of sight.
I like parkers hoyts and matthews. I had a pse nova and shot a doe 45 yards a way and the arrow made a clear pass through. pse nova is a pretty good bow.
