That leaves it pretty open. I would figure out what you are willing to spend on one...then I would go to your nearest bowshop and test them. Just about all the bows made nowadays are pretty good. I would go with any one that shoots and feels good to you....and fits your budget. Good luck

Yeah I request that you buy two and send one to me.

Try shooting a bunch of bows spend time looking at them with an expirenced pro shop. You'll find something that fits you and your budget... More importantly you. Buy once and buy exactly what you want. Make minimal compromises.

Dont get caught up in sales hype about speeds. Any of the new bows are plenty fast to suprise a deer. Its more important to be able to put the shot were you want then how fast it gets there.

I'd suggest looking into Mathews, Bowtech, and Hoyt. There are many other good companies. Read alot on the subject and you will get a feel of what important in some peoples opinion.

If I were to buy a new bow two requirements I have are 7"+ brace height and a firm backwall. I like thin hand grips to reduce torque. I like the silencer system of Mathews but dislike their back wall. I didn't like the cam over of the PSE X-force. I want to be able to smoothly draw a bow. I really like the some of the Bowtechs I shot.

the best way to find which bow is for you is to draw back a few different models and find out which one is the most comfortable. if it isn't comfortable, you'll never really like shooting it, and have a more difficult time getting consistent. Try a diamond, they are excellent bows made by bow-tech. bow-tech bow, with a cheaper price tag. the only difference is bow-tech sells diamond an unfinished bow, and diamond puts a different camo pattern on them, making them cheaper. the camo pattern just isn't a big $$ name brand, but still look good.

There are more differences than that, they are completely different bows. Diamonds are single cam bows and BowTech use binary cam technology. I will agree though, that Diamonds are good bows, good spead, and are quite quiet.

    • I have seen 3 different flocks of Swan's in the past week. I have also seen small flocks of little birds that look to be migrating.
    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Shouldn't be hard to come up with a way to fill a 1/4 inch gap, it seems to me.   Rip some strips of something, maybe even that synthetic decking, trex or something.    Then you could have the vinyl

This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets.

Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
