Looking through these threads the last few years, I have seen all kinds of very good advice on setups, techniques, bows, and equipment. I think some of the people here seem to think that "bow hunting" and "bow shooting" are the same thing. In bow hunting the operative word is HUNTING. Unless you are hunting quail with a bow, pin point accuracy is not that big an issue. You don't have to be able to split an arrow. On a good day of bow hunting, you will get and need ONLY ONE SHOT. You don't need to hit a deer in the eye ball. You need to hit the deer in the lungs, liver, or heart. At practical ranges, most little league pitchers can do that with a rock! I know hunting situations are different in different habitats. Here is the east, there is rarely an opportunity to shoot an arrow more than 35 yards. (remember that there will be tree branches, leaves, twigs, etc. in the trajectory) To kill a deer sized target at those ranges doesn't require the ability to put six arrows into a 3 inch circle. Of course, if you are hunting wide open areas where it is difficult to get that close to a deer, arrow speed, flat trajectory, and pin point accuracy is much more important. But one has to keep in mind that an arrow looses quite a bit of energy, which translates into loss of penetration and killing effectiveness, after about 40 yards. In Bow Shooting, range style, all you have to do is hit the bulls eye consistently. That requires a different setup, different sights, rests, arrows, etc. A lot of our Olympic archers shoot bows with less then 40# pulls, and put 5 arrows in a 5 inch target at 90 meters. They don't have to get a pass through shot, they have nothing in the way of the target, and do not have to follow a blood trail to recover their game. My point is this. If you are primarily a bow hunter, don't buy into the industry hype of needing all kinds of high tech equipment to put meat in the freezer. It just isn't needed. Archery companies are out to sell you all the newest equipment they can just to make more money. If you are a competition shooter, you may need some of these things to be competitive. If you are a bow hunter you need only three things; a decent bow, an arrow with a sharp breadhead, and hunting ability. Bow hunting is the single biggest thrill of me life. However, I'll be damned if I would pay $800-$900 for a bow to put meat in the freezer. I have a $250 compound bow for the range, it rarely ever goes in the woods, but my $12 recurve bow has put meat in my freezer for 33 years. For 28 consecutive years I have taken my limit of deer by concentrating on my hunting ability, and my knowledge of White Tail Deer, instead of buying into all the hype that bow companies put out every year. Please keep this in mind before you spend all your hard earned money for equipment that you really don't need.
