    Any avid hunters on here? IF so, hows your season going or what you doing to prepare?

    Our Bow season starts Oct 1 for deer here. Got a few cams out and food plots done. Nothing spectacular, but some movement. How about for you?

    Just bought myself a Mathews Monster . Loving it so far! What you guys/gals using?

    Bow season starts here Oct 1 as well. I'm just practicing and looking at what new broadheads I might want to use this year.

    Hahaha that's awesome PK

    Middle. I bought some Grim Reapers and Slackers this year. I used rage last year but had deployment issues with them. Not a fan of those anymore.

    I've checked out the Grim Reapers and might go with them.

    i like to hunt cougars...especially the ones with really big racks! i'm more of a trophy hunter....catch and release...maybe just shoot 'em with my camera but the security guards at the malls frown on that. i gotta find better hunting grounds......

    Yes they looked pretty nice. The reason I got them is because the blades are front deploy but they are spring loaded. Supposedly, if you get a pass through, the pressure of it coming back out will close the blades so they wont break if the when it hits the ground.

    Those are the features that were intriguing to me. I have never used mechanical broadheads before but know a lot of people that do and like them.

    I haven't been able to use a bow, I get a pinched nerve in my arm when I release the arrow which hurts like crazy. I don't know if it still does that, as I've been reluctant to try.

    In November though, I'll be sitting in the woods with a Ruger Super Redhawk in .454 Casull though. Gotta love the hand cannons.

    I like my Browning. It was made before Browning let PSE make their bows (and now nobody makes them at all). I like the TRs. I was sure I would like the vertical sights at first, but I do now. I have it set up with three pins right now, but thinking of going with just two a 20 and a 40.
