I am using my new (old) Darton Maverick. I am very pleased with it.

Depends on my mood, how much I've been practicing and expected distances involved - I could be hunting with a 55# Zona longbow, a 50# Martin take-down Recurve, or a 65# Mathews Drenlin.If I'm bowfishing I use a 45# Oneida H250, and put the 30# limbs on the recurve as a backup...

 If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in the country illegally,… you might live in a country founded by geniuses but run by idiots.

I have hunted with a compound years ago but since I went traditional there is nothing like it.I shoot a 50 lb hoyt dorado and it is the greatest hunting bow i have ever used.

Thanks for all the replies guys I love seeing all the varieties and looking them up. I love recurve and right now am shooting a horsebow but don't want to take that hunting so am looking for ideas on bows to look into and save up for. I am looking at the dalaa but there are a lot of bells and whistles I am not ready for and am nervous about the hoyts being 5 lbs over marking and with my 30.5 draw that could be a small proble For me...keep letting me know what bows your using I enjoy reading about the bows and ofcourse the picsBrett

Mostly my AMF wing . 60@28 or my Self bow kinda 65@28. Or both. Some times my Howitt Bandito 55@28. When Im tierd :roflmao3[1]: Both my recurves are over 30+ years old and still going. Lets see some pictures.My WingPosted ImageMy HowittPosted ImageMy stick.Posted Image
You can hop but you can't hide. Yahi Bowmen. Its not how far you can shoot but how close to the game you get when you shoot. Sights we don't need any sights. Why waist time reloading when I can be making arrows.

Mathews MQ32. Purchased the bow in 2001, I believe. I am kinda thinking it is time to get a new Hoyt, however if it is not broken than don't fix it... The mathews still does the job. Got a deer this year and antelope last year with it. I am just wondering if I could reach out further with a new bow?
