* Mathews FX set @ 56 lbs.

teflon cable slide
* 1st section of Sims Modular stabilizer w/a Doinker Chubby
* Trophy Taker Shakey Hunter
* Montana Black Gold sight
* Gold Tip XT' s
* NAP Spitfires 100 gr. (1 1/2" )

Am I the only one here that turns their bow down for
turkeys? I spend as much time hunting outside my
DB blind as I do in it.

I leave my # up because you never know when that 180 class gobbler is going to show.

You know the one that is in your dreams everynight. He weighs close to 60# with a set of 3" spurs and a couple beards around 15 & 20" .


I leave my bow the same year round. I don' t like to retune.

Two Beards, I turn my down to the minimum which is 60 lbs. IMO, you don' t want a high speed bow, with high kenetic energy for turkey. it don' t take much punch for turkeys, and it' s best for the arrow to stay in.
