Nice nice. I had blue and pink ones out on mine. They're supposedly easier to spot in the woods. Not sure that's very true, but I found the two arrows I shot in the woods with ease.

Yeah, I've already fired a couple shots from her and I must say that I do love it. My brother has a much newer bow, but I think I may actually prefer the feel of the older one compaired to that (though, I didn't actually fire any arrows from his.) I dunno why, I just like the weight of it for some reason.

I kinda wanna shoot a recurve, just to see how I'd enjoy that.

I really need to read up on bow fishing, that sounds like a ton of fun - and something I've never really though of haha. Know anygood websites for information reguarding that?
Didn't really read it, but I'm sure you can just google it and find a great deal of information. Try finding another forum dedicated to archery. I'm sure there are guys who know a ton and are willing to pass it on... http://bowsite.com/BOWSITE/features/bowfishing/gettingstarted/ Might be a good starting point.

That seems like an interesting picture. Is it just random from online or did you really try it?

I got acouple bows. I like the Martin's. Left is an '05 Cheetah, basic stock with a wisker biscuit and Bullseye sight.
Right is a '11 Exile, wisker biscuit, Truglow sight and an Apex quiver. Both are 60#, left hand, and 28 draw. I'm using a TRU Ball release (not the Truefire pictured). I do own a 1989 Bear Super Magnum 44 that's set up for fishing, it was my first compound and can't give it up. LOL

Bow Brand - Athens Archery Accomplice 34
Draw Weight - 70#
Draw Length - 29.5"
Sight - G5 Rock (I only use 1 pin in it)
Rest - QAD HDX Ultra
Quiver - Bohning Chameleon
Release - Tru-fire Hardcore
Arrows - Gold Tip Hunter XT with Blazer fletchings
Broadheads - NAP Killzone
Hunting and target shooting (recreational only)

I love this bow. I'll try to upload a pic later. I had 3 pins in my sight but they were stacked on each other so I learned to just aim a little high the further I go out. The arrow really doesn't drop much between 10-30 yards (maybe 1"). It has no sound on the shot and no jolt in your hand as the string returns. I took a chance buying a less known bow but was happy I did.

Hey, do any of you know of a decent range near Wayne county that also offers a place for Archery? I'd love to be able to bring either a firearm or my bow to the same range when ever I feel the need to shoot.
Im not from Wayne, so I can't help there. I shoot mine in my back yard. I'm sure someone around has some info..

Check out vids on You Tube of Bow Fishing!! I found them to be the most helpful. As far as a place to go ... well this is the place to be.

http://www.archerytalk.com/

Great deals on archery stuff and a TON of knowledge. You'll read quite abit about the PSE X Force HF there as well as every other bow ever made. I'm watching for a Renegade "The Nuge" bow!! Really cool looking bows. :)
