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.

I work until 3:00 pm on the week ends, but my days off change once in a while. I'm off Tues. and Thurs. right now. But maybe get off work and head up your way and get into something.

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!

I had a Hoyt once. It was a Hoyt Spectra Eclipes, The limbs split and had to be replaced and the bow was never the same. I sold it and bought some other fishing stuff with the money.

Thanks Guys

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've been shooting a Hoyt Inticer since 96. It's been a really good bow, but I've got my eye on the new Mathews LX. I think I'm gonna have to have me one one as soon as the local shop gets them in. :cool:

my bow

I shoot a Golden Eagle Evolution, and I have nothing but good to say. Although I am not the most experienced in this field, it would come recommended.

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!
