    Any Bow Hunters here??

    I got all three of my kids bow for Christmas and they realy enjoy shooting JOAD. My 10 year old daughter wants to go turkey hunting this spring and I am thinking about buying a bow for me. I am considering a Hoyt carbon element, and a Bowtech Insanity. I dont have any experience with either one just what the salesman says, so I am looking for input .

    Thanks for taking your time to read,

    I bought a used pse x force dream season around 2 years ago I've got about $600 in it with all accessories , I like the carbon element they are ulte lite, with almost no sound or vibration when you shoot, if there is an Hoyt dealer near you you may can go shoot one before you buy

    Re: Any Bow Hunters here??

    I bought my 10 year old daughter a Hoyt Ruckus from the local dealer and at the time I thought I wanted a bowtech, but I did some reading and I really like Hoyt. I guess my next question is what brand is the cream of the crop. My dealer sells Hoyt,Bowtech,and Mathews.
    I work with heavy equipment and they all get the job done but CAT is the best, thats what I am looking for.

    Freed bear has excellent bows for half the price of hoyt or Mathews. I just bought the freed bear mauler. I live that thing. Only $450 set up. Very fast and accurate.

    I bow hunt....honestly, not by choice. I own land in an archery only county. Thank God they make crossbows

    I have a lot of respect for you guys that are real deal bow hunters. That shit is hardcore. I lack the confidence. I have a fear of wounding an animal. I also have a big mouth and have bragged my entire life about new having to track an animal....I can't risk eating crow now. Too many years invested in shit talking.

    Hey man, we need to talk next season. I got a bunch of white tail on my place. They are your typicsl little Texas dog deer, but i got em.
    The only thing is; it will be kinda awkward for me given the fact that I've seen Mrs Wings breasts and all.....better leave her at home.

    I have always liked Hoyt. Had lots of them . My last bow was a Bow tech. It was Ok but I never felt 100% with it. Sold it to my little bro. Now I'm yankin on a Black Widow recurve that I bought from a guy CHEAP. I think for the money, the Bear setups are hard to beat.
