    I can't wait. I keep thinking about dropping some big coin on a new bow but then my old Hoyt is still so reliable. I'm not sure a new bow would make the deer more dead? What type of deer are you hunting Mules or Whitetail? Whitetail hunter here.

    Jon the Cabela's in PDC was having a huge sale on all of their bows last week. I had one of my baseball kids come up to me all jacked up about his latest purchase.

    I recently purchased a new Diamond Iceman from a great website, huntersfriends.com and it was the best $900 bucks I have spent in a long time. My PSE Baby-G did a great job but new the technology out there makes a huge difference. I can't wait to take my first shoot at a PA buck this fall. I was shooting with my buddy last night, who has a 5 year old Hoyt and my bow shoot so much smoother he is considering a new set-up.
    HillBilly, to answer your question, I can't wait for the season to begin.

    No new bow for my this year have decided to just be the guide for the kids. Plus next year they'll make one even faster and smoother. I got a lion and bear tag so I'll pack my big pistol.

    I just bought a new Fred Bear Truth 2. Easily the best money I've spent on hunting in a long time. So smooth and incredibly fast. Out of the box it shot 304 fps, which matches all of the "big name" brands like Hoyt and Matthews. I have a friend who is a big bow hunter and has the same bow and after a lot of tweaking (and money invested) we clocked the bow at 335 fps. Lightning fast! I can't wait for the upcoming season and take my first buck or doe with my new best friend Mr. Fred Bear Truth 2!

    Sounds like a nice bow. I get to go out tomorrow with my son he talked me into buying a deer tag and he has a deer and elk tags. We're both shooting his bow it's a Martin Leopard. I started shooting it when he was shooting the other night and was impressed.

    Hillbilly,

    That is awesome, nothing like shooting your first deer! Something that he will never forget. I still have to wait 5 weeks before I get the chance to let an arrow fly. I can't wait! I got a 130+ inch 10 point patterned and the tree stand hung. We'll see what happens in a few weeks.

    I think I was more jacked up then he was. Here's the pic I took with my phone I hope it worked. Not a big one but it was his first archery deer. He's got a handful of little bucks and does with a rifle and 1 cow elk.

    I havent tried this already, but I have this feeling of getting interested about the said bow. There are more time to wait for the season to come, and I'm not yet decided on what should I use, but I have the idea about it. Thanks for sharing your idea, I have the idea to use it.

    Thanks!
