Default Whats the age of your bow??

I hunt with a Mathews Ultra 2 it was made in 2001 I believe. I have shot and killed several deer with it.Many of them drop within 50 yrds. Its got a lot of speed and tuned with a new string and cables. I dont plan on buying one a new bow either. This one does just fine for me although I like to look. Whats the age of you guys bow??

My oldest bow is a 1965 Wing Presentation II recurve. It's40 lbs at my draw length and what I shoot 3D with and use forpracticing shooting form.Also have a '73 model Pearson 'curve anda 2003 ChekMate. Made myself a reflex/deflex longbow in 2002 and am planning to make another one, this time a straight limb Hill style longbow, in another month.

Not to mention a few selfbows I've whittled out over the past 5 years or so. Man cannot live on one bow alone.[8D]

I don't have any compounds any more. My son found out I was about to sell my 2002 ProTec and he took itaway from me.

I'v got a bear compound I found at Sports authority thats like 5 years old. I upgraded that one last year with a 10 year old Martin cougar. They both killed deer if I hit them. I Just got a brand new Martin Jaguar but am still hunting with the Cougar. The new little bow is sure light & easy to hit with but I'm so used to the old heavy one I'm afraid to swap midseason. Nuthing wrong with the old ones, I just got to where I can set them up pretty good myself & had a bunch of accesories hanging around so just mail ordered the bare bow. Less than $300. I'm happy.

Lets see.... I have a late 80's Browning Trophy Magnum II. Used that while in college and up untilI boughta 1997 Browning Boss Tracker. I used that until this year when I bought a used1999 Browning Blood Brother and now I justrescued a 2005 Browning Rage One from somebodys trash can$58.00 later and I will finish out the season with that. Oh, did I mention I like Brownings?

I do have some other bows, two old pearson recurves and aPSE Elite but those are somewhere collecting dust. The others I still shoot. I am looking for a nice old Browning recurve to add to the stable.

My main hunting bow was finished by the Bowyer in August 2003. My oldest bow is a '68 Bear Kodiak Mag.
