Which hunting bow would you recommend or deer hunting?

6 posts in this topic

Right now I am liking the Matthew Z2 or a  Matthews, but I haven't shot any yet.  Which bow out there is more popular for deer hunting?   

Any archery  store you would recommend?  Boy, there are quite a few archery stores to choose from.

Where are you located? That would give us a idea of a archery shop near you. Go to a shop and try a bunch of different brands and see what you like. I have been shooting bowtech for 10 years now,I still go out and shoot all the new bows but have ended up coming home with a bowtech. If you can find a 2015 Prodigy try it out mine is a tag filling machine, I have had it just over a year and taken 4 deer,turkey,elk and a huge black bear.

Any bow made in the last 10 years  that you can shoot good with is a good choice .  Mathews is fine if you like it becuse it shoots good for you , but most like it becuse it's on every magazine and hunting show

Ding ding ding!  Shoot Mathews, bowtech, hoyt, pse, n elite. Take home the one that shoots best for you.

Go to a bow shop or two that have more than one brand. Shoot everything they have. See what you like. Avoid the big box stores unless they have a decent bow department.

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
