Default Number of kills!

Just a couple of questions!!

How many kills do you have with the bow you hunt with now?

Do you retire your bow after a certain number of kills with it?

I have killed 3 deer with my current set-up. All this year since I didn't have it last year.

And no, she is not getting retired. She might be moving to 2nd chair soon though[:-]

How many kills do you have with the bow you hunt with now? I have shot 9 deer and 5 bear with my recurve I'm hunting with now.

Do you retire your bow after a certain number of kills with it? Heck no! I'd use my recurve as long as I could If I liked It, which I do. This might be It's last year though, loosing draw weight. I've been hunting with It for 14 years this fall.

The one I use the most is my Cardiac...
In 2 years with the Cardiac alone
11 Hogs
1 Bear
1 Coyote
2 Possums

And I will shoot it until it doesn't shoot anymore...been a very good bow for me....

And all the others I have will never be retired either....

3 kills with my bow. Pronghorn Buck, Whitetail Buck, and a Whitetail Doe.

I wont retire it until I trade up or get a new one and bump this one to backup. I will have a hard time ever selling this bow being my first I ever scored with

I have around 14 kills with my 1997 bow. I won't retire it until I find something new that I like better than the one I have.
