LOL Ron!!!! no i don't question the bow what so ever, just wish i had more time to work up a better arrow/broadhead combo. i plan on using it alot this year hunting, DIDN't plan on using it this quick as it is pressed in to action! NO it will never be sold again, to much mojo and i have a couple bows that mean a whole lot to me, this is one of them.

Shoot them in the head.If you miss you don't hurt anything and if you hit them they don't fly off.Don't have to worry about your arrows bouncing back at you with light weight bows either. [Wink]

Try some of them Guillotine style broadheads.
Look like the best way to get them quickly!

acadian archer, was that a black bear? It takes a special kind of courage to go after a 300# Grizzly with a 41# recurve.

no, it was a black bear who weighted in at 320. I am so hooked , I can't wait for september as we don't have a spring hunt.

wish we had grizzly out here but none in eastern canada. I've since gone to 44# so maybe a trip out west to meet the grizzly would be a good idea .

beautifu animals they are. saw a few when I worked out west.

Go get 'em bro. I use my 48# K-Mag for turkeys and have no reservations what so ever. Gotta love them old Bear bows! Good luck brother.

I will be using a 42# 59 Kodiak tomorrow morning.

Used a 40# 1959 Bear Alaskan last year - worked fine.

You guys have got to be kidding me. I've never even seen a 45# turkey.
