    That rig is no were close to a gun,when using a counpound bow you need all the extra little goodies to help you, its a challenge, not quite easy as you would think,exspecially shooting from 30-35' up in a tree , a crossbow is like shooting a gun

    Theres a couple nice bucks, but that second one is a bruiser, lots of height and width. I haven't gotten into bow hunting yet, but I will one of these years. Rifle season here in ND starts November 4th and I cant wait!!

    Spent the weekend chasing Whitetails, no luck there. But, I got one of the 'yotes that I found destroying somebodies young six-pointer.

    Got him at 45 yards, hit him in left side at the last rib, exit out the right shoulder- he jumped, took one step, and fell dead. The Backwoods Damascus Hunter did a great job on the hide.

    Thanks Bill, I was pretty happy about the shot. Your knife made quick work of the hide. Now if I could just get the deer to move during daylight!

    Bill Awesome pics! Well my friend and I buy our bows from Fishermans Warehouse in the Columbus area. We went hunting just East of Columbus and both shot nice bucks. A year later the Michigan DNR came and questioned us for the Ohio DNR.Seems the guy that charged us for a guided hunt put us on property he had no permission to be on.I guess he is doing time down there as they had been watching him for 5 years. I loved hunting down there even though it is a 9 hour drive.

    Thise are definitely some nice rigs. I'm a stickbow shooter myself. I like the simplicity of it. Nowhere near as accurate though. Shootin a Bear Kodiak Hunter in Bubinga and Mahogany. It's a Grayling bow. Dual core limbs. Pulls 50#s at my 29"s. Flings my gold tip hunters real nice!

    Whats everyones opinion on Bear bows? After not having enough time to hunt during the rifle season I've decided that I want to get into bow hunting beings the season is from the beginning of September until after new years. I'll have more chances to get out and hunt. We have one archery shop here in town that sells Bear and Alpine bows. The guy that owns it is one of my best friends uncles and my friend says that he can get me a pretty good deal. He also told me that he really likes the Bear bows and it was what he thought I should go with.

    ac700wildcat, bear's top of the line compounds are good, and their stickbows are great. You can find used bows that are typically only a year or two old and have been shot very little for insanely good prices on archery forums. I shoot a Diamond Marquis with 28.5 inch draw at 72 pounds, with an HHA Optimizer ultra sight, apache stabilizer, fuse whisker biscuit rest, easton full metal jacket arrows, and rage two blade broadheads. If you can find an elite z28 or GT500 on the forums, theyre amazing bows, if youre ok with a dual cam bow. Look for something with at least a 7 inch brace height, it'll be easier and more forgiving for you to learn to shoot well with. If youre like me, you wont be rifle hunting much more once the bow bug bites you. :D

    Hello all,

    some nice game taken pics in this thread.

    In regards to bear bows - I only shoot trad bows. Not a huge fan of their trad bows - I much prefer my Border Black Douglas or Schaffer Silvertip.
    A mate has their carnage compound and it certainly spits an arrow!
    Cheers

    Bill,

    I shoot a Mathews Z7 Extreme, but always take some sort of backup if I'm traveling out of state. It paid off this year, used a Kodiak to take my Muley.
