    Ill be sure to get it right out in the mail to ya Seriously though I live in the city of Rochester and as far as I know theres no state land within distance that would be practical (my car sucks alot of gas). Theres an indoor range on the upper floor of the gander mt here, and theres a local archery shop that has one but that isnt an option due to the fact that they were complete D bags to me when I tried to get my bow serviced, and basically acted as if since I didnt buy a 1500 bow from them they really didnt care to help me. So I really dont want to patronize their business. Thanks for the welcome

    That sucks!!!! I hate it when shops think you NEED to spend over a $1000 with them to be worth the time they spend with you. There's no need to spend that much on a bow anyways unless you are into highly competitive shooting. I generally stick to a max of $500 fully loaded and tend to buy newer used bows as the value is about 40-50% of what they cost new after one year anyways. (except for a few that are reasonably priced from the start like Parker bows) I did buy a new Bear Carnage that was $849.99 bare bow, BUT I got it from a shop going out of business for $450 shipped to my door!! Awesome bow that was. I wished I had kept it but the PSE X Force bug bit me so ... anyways, archery is addicting and expensive at times. Like carbon arrows ... $$$ .... LOL

    I shoot Carbon Express .500 wood grain arrows with hand sharpened 3 blade 145gr. Magnus snuffers.
    It's a Killa

    OK people ... I'm telling you right now, these bows are a STEAL!! I got this one from Sportsman's Guide about 5 months ago and set it up for big game. At 70lbs and 29" DL, this thing ain't bad at all. Very respectable even when compared to the new bows of today. (single cam) This is a 2008 Parker Frontier which, in it's day, was $699 new!!! They are available as NOS (New old stock) for $197.99 bare. (No sight, rest etc) I just ordered another one to set it up for small game and I'll drop it down to 60lbs for that. If you're looking to get a nice backup bow or looking to upgrade from the "older style compound bow" you may have without breaking the bank .... here it is!! I had this listed in the FS section, but decided to just keep it for now. I like the fact the bow has the cam and idler also camo dipped. LOL

    That's a great price on a top quality bow! I just might jump on that deal.
    Back a few years ago when I was a member of the IBO and followed the triple crown and worlds tourney circuits all the top shooters and some of the pros were shooting Parker bows with great success. I remember trying one out and was very impressed with it.

    Yep ...I see the Hoyt. I'm still after a PSE X Force HF6 and a Martin Slayer X !!! I've owned both before and although I had the typical Martin cracked limbs, they showed me what their outstanding customer service is made of!! One hell of a great company.

    My current bow is a PSE Bruin Pro Series. It has a Truglo 3 pin sight, Trophy Ridge Whisker biscuit and a Vapor Trails strings. Just picked a 2014 PSE Stinger 3G in skullworks camo which I'll be setting up this winter after I sell the Bruin when bow season ends.

    I just picked up my first bow from Doc's Archery in North Tonawanda NY. Paid $399 plus tax. 12 Arrows were $80. Release $40 Im glad i went with a local shop. I love the blue color. The shop set everything up and let me use there range. They got my 20 yd pin set up. My draw is 28 and my pull is 38 pounds. I have never shot a bow to this day and i love it. The bow is nice because the range of adjustment from 5 pound pull to 70 pounds. I have the summer to learn and get ready for bow season this year. What hunting broadheads do you guys use?

    Just picked this package deal up off 24 hr. Campfire classifieds. 5 year old Mathews Z7. $450 shipped to me. Pulled the top-right shot a bit, but it still flew true... Thats a lasered-51 yard group I shot with a US quarter placed on later for scale. Cant wait for this fall..
