I shoot a Reflex Buckskin with the cam and a half set at 60 lbs. I have a NAP Quick tune 4000 fall away, Copper John deadnuts sight, Doinker 7" hunter stabalizer, and a Fuse 2 piece quiver. My arrows are custom made in Michigan. They are Easton C2 340s' dipped and crested. Leading the arrows are Slick Trick 4 blade broadheads.

I shoot the Proline Mountain 32 with Easton XX75 2317 arrows. I like a heavier arrow. I tried switching to the carbons but I didn't like them at all.

An ancient Bear 45lb recurve and another ancient Onieda Eagle compound bow tuned to 70lbs. Easton game getter arrows, with 90 grain cabela's broadheads. For the recurve I am still shooting cedar arrows with real feather fletching old razor broadheads.
The recuve is used for targets (without broadheads) and up to deer size game. The compound is what I use for deer and elk.

I love shooting recurves. I am only good up to about 20 yards with them. My carp-fishing bow is an old Martin Cougar. I shoot it with no sights and fingers. The old Martin shoots pretty nice for being a dinosaur. Them longer bows are more forgiving.

Pile of old recureves for fun, Bear and BP's but the main meat getter is the SwitchBack.
More ammo! I need to shoot something!

I shoot an old PSE nova that Ive shot for the past 11 years. Too comfortable with it to switch. Shoot beman carbons and hundred grain thunderheads. I dont see the need for change when something works.
If they're dumb enough to be lured in by plastic you're really just doing them a favor.

Know your target before you pull the trigger.

Smackaduck, my first bow kill was with a Nova. I shot the hell out of that bow. I had cracking on the limbs, then traded it for a Golden Eagle System. That was one heavy bow, then I won my latest bow in a video archery league. I won a Renegade Tominator. Very small, very light, and very fast. I switched to Carbons four years ago, and now I'm shooting lightening fast. For the people who say that aluminum works just fine, they are correct, but if you switch to carbon, I can guarantee that you'll shoot nothing else. I used to shoot fingers, then switched to a release. I used to shoot instinctive, then i switched to pins. I used to shoot aluminum, then I switched to carbon, and I know that for every time I upgraded, it made my shooting accuracy increase that much more. I shoot Whitetails mostly, but am really considering trying to take my next turkey with one this spring. I was one of those guys who used to laugh at the guys who duck hunted, because I was so fixated on archery hunting. Well that was before I gave it a true go at it. Now bow hunting takes a back seat to duck hunting. I still bow hunt, but just don't do it nearly as much. Probably the main reason I'm still married. :laughing: Glad to see an archery forum! :thumbsup:

what I shoot

Postby Tuff » Tue Feb 28, 2006 7:07 pm

I shoot a Reflex Growler set at 60lbs. with a 3 pin Trophy Ridge sight, Carbon Express arrows. Carbon Express Terminator arrows with 125 Grain Muzzy Broadheads. Been bowhunting for a while, started duck hunting three years ago and love doing both. Haven't been a member long but think DHC is a great site, and this is a great forum to add.

Pete I would definitely take the bow into the turkey woods this Spring. Took my first turkey with bow last spring and can't imagine doing it any other way now.

I shoot a Humming Bird Custom takedown Recurve 52# I shoot mainly for hunting but occacionally Ill do some 3d shoots and I shoot instinctively, no pins here. I also have a Grizzly recurve that I started out with 40# but only bring it out once in a blue moon.
If they weren’t meant to be eaten, then why are they made of meat?

I shoot a Horne's Archery take-down recurve @ 66# and a PSE kingfisher @ 45#. I'd like to use the latter for bowfishing eventually. BUt mainly I've used it as a lighter bow to work on my form.
The Hornes has by far been my favorite, a dream to shoot. Maybe someday I'll go compound, but I have a thing for trad. archery!

Reflex is the sister company to Hoyt. I get most of the Hoyt features for a little bit better price.

I shoot a martin saber 65# with a whisker biscut fiber, old set of optic sights with 125 grain 3 blade muzzys. I wouldn't shoot any other broad heed they are just like they say "bad to the bone".
I am glad to see they have added archery, I am excited to chat with fellow archerers. :salude:
