Hey fellas I just wanted to hear what your favorite compound is to shoot with. I would like to get one before mid summer and Im all up for suggestions and opinions on what bows are really good to go with. Thanks a bunch.
I have been shooting my Oneida Aeroforce for years. It's a great shooting bow , but is heavy. I'm going to be looking out there for a lighter bow. But I'll stick with this one until I find one that shoots like this one.
You might have guessed.... A Hoyt Smoke. Loke it. Love it. Love it. will never buy another bow other than a Hoyt. I just bought a Merlin Storm which I have only had for a couple days so I cant say without shooting it a bunch. Look at the Hoyt Cam and a Halfs. Havent shot one but if it is anything like my smoke I am sure it is an outstanding bow!
Hoytme2....Buddy has a new Hoyt Cam&1/2 and shoots consistant 295 PAA spot rounds indoors with it! He likes it so well, he just ordered one for his daughter. Must be sumthin bout them Hoyt's thats catchy for sure!....TF
Hey do you guys know anyone interested in Crossbows. I have a Horton Yukon and a Horton Legand. Not sure what Im gonna get rid of them for like 200 for the Yukon and 400 for the Legand. The Legand had a zoomable scope that camo with it and camo strap. Are they worth that?
I'm a MARTIN fan myself, had 3 of um' in 20 years of hunting.
Martin TO ME:
Not the fastest
Not the best shooting
Not the most forgiving
But the best all around hunting bow I have ever seen as far as ruggedness, I drop these suckers out of the tree at least 2-3 times per year, still keep son going...tic tic tic tic.
The previous bow I had before this cougar Magnum (had it 2years now) was the Firecat.....Bought it back in 1991, after I set the pins the orignal time, I never had to change them, never replaced a string or nothing on the bow until I retired it at the end of 2001 hunting season...was one of the better weapons I think I ever had.
So, for you speed freaks, Martin is not it (although they are fast) and for accuracy and forgiveness they are not the best either, but for over all hunting satisfaction, you cannot beat a Martin Bow!
I consider myself a hunter, not an archer. When I am hunting, I want something that I have the utmost confidence in that will not fail me when it's time to pull it back. Seen too many other brands of High-end bows that buddies shoot, have to be tuned and tweeked from week to week...and limbs cracking/spliting, all kinds of problems...you won't find that in a Martin!
