    I kinda wanna shoot a recurve, just to see how I'd enjoy that.

    I really need to read up on bow fishing, that sounds like a ton of fun - and something I've never really though of haha. Know anygood websites for information reguarding that?

    Didn't really read it, but I'm sure you can just google it and find a great deal of information. Try finding another forum dedicated to archery. I'm sure there are guys who know a ton and are willing to pass it on... http://bowsite.com/BOWSITE/features/...ettingstarted/ Might be a good starting point.

    That seems like an interesting picture. Is it just random from online or did you really try it?

    I got acouple bows. I like the Martin's. Left is an '05 Cheetah, basic stock with a wisker biscuit and Bullseye sight.
    Right is a '11 Exile, wisker biscuit, Truglow sight and an Apex quiver. Both are 60#, left hand, and 28 draw. I'm using a TRU Ball release (not the Truefire pictured). I do own a 1989 Bear Super Magnum 44 that's set up for fishing, it was my first compound and can't give it up. LOL

    Here’s to a long life and a merry one. A quick death and an easy one. A pretty girl and an honest one. A cold beer and another one!

    Hey, do any of you know of a decent range near Wayne county that also offers a place for Archery? I'd love to be able to bring either a firearm or my bow to the same range when ever I feel the need to shoot.

    Bow Brand - Athens Archery Accomplice 34
    Draw Weight - 70#
    Draw Length - 29.5"
    Sight - G5 Rock (I only use 1 pin in it)
    Rest - QAD HDX Ultra
    Quiver - Bohning Chameleon
    Release - Tru-fire Hardcore
    Arrows - Gold Tip Hunter XT with Blazer fletchings
    Broadheads - NAP Killzone
    Hunting and target shooting (recreational only)

    I love this bow. I'll try to upload a pic later. I had 3 pins in my sight but they were stacked on each other so I learned to just aim a little high the further I go out. The arrow really doesn't drop much between 10-30 yards (maybe 1"). It has no sound on the shot and no jolt in your hand as the string returns. I took a chance buying a less known bow but was happy I did.

    Check out vids on You Tube of Bow Fishing!! I found them to be the most helpful. As far as a place to go ... well this is the place to be.

    http://www.archerytalk.com/

    Great deals on archery stuff and a TON of knowledge. You'll read quite abit about the PSE X Force HF there as well as every other bow ever made. I'm watching for a Renegade "The Nuge" bow!! Really cool looking bows.
    RIP NYF

    I like it! Is it a new style for 2013? I've never seen it before. Are you using 2 blade rages or 3?

    I can't edit my original post because the threads merged. Here's some more from me:

    This is the first monster series i have owned.My last was a dxt and switchback before that.Im not real sure what the older monsters had to offer but i can say i shot one of the first ones they made and didnt like it.I mainly just hunt with it and wanted to try a bow this time that was just plain fast.I hurt my shoulder a couple yrs ago and had to drop to a 60lb bow.After watching my arrows fly like logs(under a deer or two) for the last couple years,and with my shoulder healing up well i decided on this one.Its is real quiet and smooth with no aftershock at all.I set it up and shot it through a chronograph and it was smoking at 324fps in my hunting set up.All in all aside from the price i am very happy with it.

    Yea they are crazy expensive. I love mine, but couldn't spend that much again unless I couldn't use the one I have now.

    Hi there, checking out this thread at the suggestion of another. New to the forums and new to archery.

    I dont have a pic of my set up at the moment, my set up isnt all that impressive though I do love it.
    On a spur of trying to get back to my roots after living in a city for the last 10 years (grew up romping around the wilderness and the green mountains of VT) I talked my gf into allowing me to pick up a bow as long as I kept it reasonable. Long story short I was able to get a
    RTH package Bear Mauler 29" draw length 50-60 # draw strength. Its a beautiful bow but unfortunately I have yet to be able to find time to go to the range and try it out. Previous to this I have a small amount of experience from college with a recurve bow.

    So thats me and what Ive got, would love to get into the sport more, but the only range I know of near me is in gander mountain and it feels a little wierd. So if anyone has any hints, tips, suggestions, or a want to sponser a newbie and show him how its done irl at some point Id love to hear from you.

    Send it to me ... I'll get plenty of range time with it!! You don't have a state land area or someplace big enough to shoot a bow? I shoot mine in the house!! LOL Oh ... one more thing ,,,, welcome to the forum!!

    Are you shooting arrows designed for no more than 60lbs out of a bow set at 70lbs? Spine is way wrong if so and actually pretty close to mimicking a dry fire as well since that arrow is REALLY flexing on the launch.
