I love my sticks. Couldn't go back to the training wheel bows if I tried. :) I used to shoot the bowtech's and switched to hoyt just before I quit shooting compounds. Both are terrific bows. I like my longbows and recurves now though. You just can't beat 200 fps or less and no let off!!!

DITTO thats all I shoot too. I like my old AMF red wing 70lbs not for sissies ;) :smiley_kewlpics:
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.

Grew up in Iowa learning to shoot recurves (my 1st was a Bear 40 pounder) but when I retired from the military, I took up shooting compounds. I used to shoot for Mathews Semi Pro division at most of the IBO tournaments using a Conquest II in the Open classes. Those were the fun years till my hunting disease started up again so I gave up the tournament thing. I've taken numerous deer, bobcats and coyotes with a Mathews 70lb. Legacy. I sold that bow to a friend and bought a BowTech 70lb. Extreme VFT and now I have a custom BowTech 70lb. Allegience in Mossy Oak Brush camo. So far, I've shot 9 coyotes with this bow in ranges from 11 to 88 yards. I still shoot my stick bow and recurve (a Black Widow Hunter and PSE Coyote) to remind myself of where I came from.

I shoot a '06 bowtech tribute and i love it. I've had 2 bowtechs and they were both great. very smooth, fast, and quiet.

I just purchased a Martin Jaguar Magnum and I love it so far but this is my first bow so I really don't know any better. I do like shooting it though. My buddy challenged me today to hit an ammo box at the distance of my choosing. I chose 40 yds, go big or go home. Hit it on the first shot.Posted Image
