...can I keep it?

DSC02289.jpg

My first brand new bow in a long time.

Mathews DXT. Extreme 5 pin site, Trophy Taker full containment rest, S Coil stabalizer, Hoyt lightweight quiver.

The guys at A1 Archery in Hudson, WI did a great job getting me all set up with the new rig. Can't wait to start running some broadheads through her tonight!

I'll bet that thing sure is fun to shoot. Congrats I sure wish I could have one. My Mathews is 10 years old, it would be nice to upgrade.

My old bow was a 10 year old Mathews and I still love it, it still shoots great! Hopefully this one will treat me as well for a long time to come.

And yes, it is fun to shoot!

Nice set up Don!!! I bet yer chomping at the bit to put a deer down w/ it!

Good luck this fall!

My daughter is shooting great out to 15 yards. Just have to get her poundage bumped up a little more and see how she shoots broadheads and she'll be set. We're really looking forward to Sept. 19th!!!

After shooting this new bow for the week I gotta say I'm really like'n it. It comes over as smooth as any I've ever shot. Back wall is nice and solid with no tendancy to rip the string out of your hand if you don't stay back on it. It's about 20 FPS faster than the old bow, shooting a roughly 400 grain arrow at about 260 FPS from only 55 lbs.

The release is quiet and stable with almost zero hand shock. The pin stays put on the target after release with no problem.

It shoots my G5 Strykers as good as my field tips.

I think the short axel to axel is gonna be a real benefit while hunting out of my pop up blinds that I find myself useing more and more as I get older. Even the new era of sight pins are so much brighter than the older ones that they also will be a nice addition inside a dark blind.

Overall I'm very happy with everything I've seen so far.

Can't wait to put that pin on a deer....

    • It's a fat chick too! Nice pictures eyeguy!!
    • Stayed in a Holiday Inn Express last night.
    •   Ok, well what color would he like? I got some left over rounded ones from the kids so he wouldn't stick himself even!
    •   Bahaha, was checking to see what the new slug for deer hunting maybe, also? 
    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?
