    I don't know what it is, but I love to watch my husband(vlparrish) use the bow. I've only been able to see him bowfish with it, but I hope i can talk him into taking me out deer hunting. I'd like to find a bow small enough for me to use. I think it's something I'd like to get into.

    Good luck, guys.

    Ms. Kelli.

    I am 51 years young and a 190# boy and I use a childs bow. The reason is joint trouble.

    The bow is a Browning Micro Adrenaline. It has a peak weight of 50# but I shoot it at 47#, it can be set lighter. It has an 80% weight drop at full draw. The draw length is adjustable from 18 to 28 inches.

    I took two bucks last season and they both fell within visual distance. Check it out you might like it...

    yeah id check with browning like Robert said, i have a rage combo, about 300.00 bow. and the draw is like 18-28. weight is 55-65. and i can hit same spot on target with any kind, or sized arrow u hand me. I am ready and waiting for Sept. 30 (Weather permitting) hope theres a good snow on the ground about 2 feet deep.... J/k thats in Nov. but i hope its in the 50's at night anyway and mid 70's MAX in the day. i like to wear thin longsleeve shirt and a pair of camo sweatpants. or anything thin. untill it starts gettin into the 50's, and 60's. Got my eye on a good buck i seen last year. he was a good 14 about 150-160 class buck hes at my uncles, then at my grandpas there is one hes probably a good 18-20 pointer who goes prob. 300 lbs and about 185 class. but he will be with gun... SMART deer. unless i catch either on in RUT... ( RUNNING UNDER TESTOSTERONE) sp... lol i made that up. any reps for that... J/K

    Sept 15 in Lynchburg VA. I bought a Horton Crossbow on Ebay. I have it covered with silencers and sighted in for 13 and 23 yards which is all I need for where I hunt. Oh yeah!!! I am excited.
