    What type of bow do you like to shoot? I recently acquired a Bushmen long bow from a friend of mine. Now, I am waiting to get new arrows made, so I can tune this bow and do some shooting. I also have a Mathews Heli-M (28" draw, 70#, Lost Camo). I bought my kids a Genesis bow, so they can shoot with me and use it if they join the NASP. Unfortunately, I don't have any pics of my current bows, but here is a pic of my first bow - Alpine Archery Beartooth Hunter.

    I shoot a Bowtech Assassin...first was a second hand Hoyt that wasnt quite right as far as fit goes...made my shoulder hurt like the dickens

    Went to the local shop and tried out a few, and the Assassin was in my price range, and fit me well...love it

    Havent hunted with it yet but looking to come next season

    I like my bow hobby much better than my firearm hobby...it costs me much much less long term because arrows can be reused over and over...bullets cannot

    My first was a PSE Venom. Grip was too fat and I swapped it out for a Bowtech Equalizer. Love it, though I rarely have time to shoot it now. Havent hunted with it in probably 10 years at least. :(

    I’m a compound shooter.

    Started off with a PSE thunderbolt and then dumped a ton of money into getting that now up to snuff, but was never truly happy with its performance. Literally, everything other than riser and cams was different.

    Finally saw the error in my ways and shot a ton of bows before I settled on elite. Then I kind of became a fanboy. Been shooting an E35 lately.

    However, I did just order a brand spanking new ritual. 88% efficient bow, from an engineering aspect, that’s some damn math.
