I've been looking into buying a bow. as a kid i could split a sparrow with a little black bear. Pretty sad I know but my grandfather hated all the noise they made and gave me something to do. Either way I'd like to get a good bow for hunting deer with. I 've been reading up alot on them and have seen a few I like but like anything reading about them is pointless when it comes to performance. some has told me to go and spend a weekend at the bass pro trying them out, but who has time for all that. I want a silent bow with good balance and light weight. Any ideas or thoughts on the ones that you own would be helpfull.
