Topic: what Bow do you shoot?
Posted: December 10 2007 at 12:16pm
So I was bored today and thought Id see what the other archery Hunters shoot in here?

I shoot a Hoyt Trykon XL.. Its is anodized brorown riser with black limbs. I shoot a Fuse Intrepid5 Pin with a Fuse Caldera Quiver for hunting. I use a Copper Jon Pro C.A.T series fall away rest. I have a STS system along with a 12 in Doinker carbon Fiber stabilizer. I have custom 3 color strings and cables in orange/white/blue. For hunting and 3d I shoot Easton AXIS HT's at 28.5 in with muzzy mx4 broadheads for hunting. I use a Scott Little goose trigger . For Indoor I use the same sight with a carter back tension release and 2613 arrows.
90% of the fish are landed by 10% of the fishermen. Luck is preperation and timing coming together....

CG, I see you shoot some line cutter. I've been out of competition shooting for some years now. I got tired of the politics at the upper level. I'm still shooting an old Hoyt bow for hunting w/Montana Gold sight, 3D rover rest, XX78 arrows, Thunderhead broadheads, Toxonic stabilizer, and Scott Shark release but I have shot many other setups from Tradition, Compound with fingers, and etc. I still play around a little helping others with buying, setups, repairs, and instruction.

Ya the line cutters are the only way to go, Id rather shoot smaller arrows but when One x or 10 ring is the diff between money and none, you need all the extra you can get...I really want to turn pro and that is going to take alot of work on my end... I shoot bowhunter freestyle right now and by next year I want to be shooting freestyle.. but that is where I will need to be consistent 299-300 on a vegas with x count in the upper 20's to have a shot.... Im not quite there yet but I will be by next year....

Yes it is fun but man it is hard to pass up 40 yard shots at animals I got into recurves after inheriting a few many years ago so I felt obligated to use them and I think its the only way to go. I have no problem at all with compounds someday I would like to try one but they seem complicated I love the simplicity of traditional archery

I shoot a Mathews Legacy with a single pin adjustable for elevation with marks every 5 yards. I found shooting multiple pins with such a flat shooting bow I covered too much of the target with the pins so bunched up. I use a wisker biscuit, and a "no-peep" peep sight. Rather difficult to setup but once you shoot with it a few weeks you can eliminate the peepsight completely as it teaches you to have perfoect form and a consistant anchor point.

For fishing I shoot an Oneida Osprey. I can't imagine anything even close to this for bowfishing. It's simply the best! Combined with a roller rest, and a retreiver reel it's the apex of bowfishing equipment today!

Matthews 2006 Switchback XT- 29", #70 lbs.
NAP Smartrest, Trophy Ridge pin sight, Matthews quiver, Carbon express maxima arrows, wrapped and with blazer fletching, Slick Trik BH and something new for me- a Tru-Fire trigger release! And those fiber optic colored sight pins are great. I am good to go for 55 yards under good conditions and 45 yards from elevated positions (even have climbing tree stand now). new bow technology sure is trick.

Quite a difference in arrow speed and performance when compared to my early 1980's Jennings T star bow, aluminum arrows, metal sight pins with fingernail polish, 3 finger leather tipped release. Limited my range back then to under 35 yards tops. No stranger to bow hunting, took 2 nice bucks back then in the Tiger mtn area past Issaquah.

Finally realize a dream in 2008 & beyond, more hunting time in the field!
Modern rifle in WA and a bow season vacation in OR or ID and maybe eastern BC.
The modern rifle seasons in WA have been very lucky for me the last 10 years, can't give it up for partners and sentimental reasons.
