Greetings fellow bowhunters, Well, I've started shooting my new (used but new to me) Parker Buck Hunter 70 lb compound bow this past weekend that I purchased from a hunting buddy at the end of last season. He bought a new BowTech and sold me his Parker. I was having a lot of problems with the Parker not being able to hit anything consistantly with it. Another good friend of mine is a bow smith and tornament Archer, he worked with me and the bow for over 3 hours on Sat and man did it make a difference. We started off with the paper test at 4 feet, my bow was tearing the paper up. He put a new string on it (it was in bad shape) and spent the rest of the time tuning it and doing the paper test. It took a while to get it shooting right but it was well worth it. After giving me some pointers on stance, anchor point, focussing on camber and such, I am happy to say that I can hit anything I want up to 40 yds with confidence. The point I am making is, it is worth the time and money to go to someone who knows bowhunting and how to setup a bow to make your hunting experience the best it can be. I also hunt with a Ten Point crossbow that I have been very deadly with the past 3 seasons and he didn't give me any gref for using a crossbow but glad to see me excited about the compound bow. We need all the help we can get from fellow hunters to keep this right of passage alive! Weather it be Compound or crossbow, the more hunters in the woods, the better for our sport. I'm 46 and have been hunting all my adult life but just recently getting into Bow hunting. I get jabbed at and made fun of for the crossbow, but we need to band together to ensure that our Children and their children get to experience this most blessed of experiences we call hunting. Thanks and be safe!
