Default What's your favorite hunting bow?

Hi guys! What is the bow you use for hunting deer? I have the Bear Archery Camo Cruzer RTH Compound Bow Right Handed I bought online from Full Force Hunting - an aussie store.

I believe bows are kinda like shotguns. Don't worry so much about brand - just find the one that fits and feels right to you. Right now, I'm using a 2013 Mathews MR8.

I've used some model Darton the last 43 years. I liked my WH600s the best. Wood handle with recurve limbs (1989 & 90 models). Bear, Caribou, hogs, Whitetail & more with them

my fav bow I ever had(still do, just don't use) was an old oneida eagle bow, witha 4 inch overdraw, was FAST , quiet, and smooth shooting!
MAN I shot the crap out of that bow, fit me like a glove, killed OH so many animals with it over the 12+ yrs I hunted with it, then like a fool I decided I needed a shorter bow, which I didn;t like, so that went to a different one, and then another and another
and NOW< due to back injuries I don't bow hunt anymore

Still have that bow, however, so guess its my Fav
even liked the look better over basic bows today, and they still make em, so have a look guys, never know what might catch your eye LOL

My primary bow is a Barient Recruit crossbow. Most of my practice is here in the basement. I shoot the arrows into a styrofoam target.



Recruit crossbo $199.99
