Point the arrow away from you. LOL
Okay guys, sorry, but I can not top that other thread in this section. I didn't see the bow either but I saw a fine pair of guns. Anyway, I am picking up my new bow this week. it is a PSE. Funny thing is, I forget what model. I haven't shot a bow since the old recurve when I was about 12. I have a customer that manufactures titanium broadheads. He owed me a little money so rather than have our uncle in DC get our funds, he got me a bow from one of his vendors. Shhh!
By the way, my customer that manufactures the broadheads owns Steel Force broadheads out of Honesdale Pa. I hope that I can mention that without getting my peenie slapped.
SO, it is at the bow shop getting outfitted with sights and all the goodies. Can you guys that shoot give me any pointers? I see all different sights out there. How many pins does anyone suggest? I have been told that if you take 100 different archers they will have their bows setup 99 different ways but I'm looking for some general type stuff to gain some knowledge. Thanks for any help. Andy.
I have an older Ben Pearson bow that I haven't shot for a few years. I almost lost interest in bow hunting. We have a large deer population here, and these are corn fed, very large.
Hope Mighty Mouse didn't shoot himself ! Son of a farmer must be a Real Joker lol ! Well I guess not many Deer Hunters on this Forum...Darn !
I'm a deer hunter.... My wife also deer hunts and bow hunts.. I have a thread about the buck she killed this year.
I know this is a old thread and you probably got your bow lined out... But on my PSE bow and my wife's bow we just use ( 3 sight pins)
I used a Nikon range finder to sight the pins in...A range finder is a must for bow hunters.... I had thought about getting new sights, but never did.. There is just too many different kinds out there... I have even thought about getting a laser sight.
I did change my arrow rest... I bought a "Quick Tune Rest", made by NAP... I can turn my bow upside down and the arrow won't fall off the rest.
We use carbon arrows... Another thing I bought to save money, is a "Fletching Jig,".. I bought it at Gander Mountain and it sure is worth the money... You can buy books or go online to learn more about tuning a bow.
Thanks for the info Bill. I got my bow in kinda weird circumstances. A buddy of mine owns Steel Force broadheads. He bought a bunch of hoses from me and I did a lot of work on his equipment, so we bartered a little. He got me this PSE bow fro one of his vendors. We took the bow to a local bow shop to get outfitted. This local guy is so knowledgable it's scary. He has shot and killed a deer with the bow at 130 yards. Anyway, the guy at the shop hooked me up pretty good. But, my sight only has one pin and I want 3. So, off in a couple weeks to the bow shop.
I love the way this bow shoots. It almost shoots itself. Shooting feels almost effortless.
Nope, didn't shoot myself, yet! I did post in another thread about this, but I lost my hunting property. I was in a hunting club. Long story short, the owners didn't want females around during hunting season. Even though we would arrive at 5 a.m., go straight to my stand, then leave at the end of the day. They still didn't want any females around. So, I dropped my keys on the table and left. I do have a couple places lined up but nothing definate yet.
