RE: So who wants to hear about the 2006 Bowtech "Tribute" ??

Wow. I'm extremely shocked and dismayed about that. Don't know why they would want to go from a 32" to 30" on their longest bow. Doesn't make any sense to me.

RE: So who wants to hear about the 2006 Bowtech "Tribute" ??

Matt,

Hey walks, ain't it great to be a color blind bowhunter? Really makes it challenging to track a deer doesn't it. If there's no snow, I don't have a chance. Off I go to get a buddy.
