    Default It Bugs me

    Me a buddy of mine and my 24 year old son were shooting 3D yesterday and having a great time. My son shoots 80 lbs and My buddy was watching how fast those arrows were moving and made the comment Wow, I want to shoot 80 lbs. Then of course you get some loudmouth from another group that just has to put in his 2 cents and ask, why are you shooting 80lb's, what are you hunting and so on. Why can't you just shoot what you want to shoot and be left alone? My son shoots 80lb's because he can, and that's what he likes!!! He has killed more deer with a bow than most I know starting with 30 lbs at 12 years old.

    If I saw a big guy pulling 80 pounds, common sense tells me to keep my smart axx comments to myself.

    Why does everyone who shoots 80 lbs have to tell you how many deer they've shot...

    It not a matter of what or how many deer it's just when someone speaks up like that the first thing is well you don't need that poundage to kill a deer and we all know that. You don't need 70, 60,50,40,30 but why do we shoot what we shoot? Because it what we like for one reason or another.

    Javi,

    You've been at this long enough to know that some people are impressed by big numbers. To the OP. I'll bet you'd really enjoy pulling my arrows from a 3D target. They come out of a bow peaking 42# and still traveling almost 280 fps.

    most people tend to get pissed if you shoot over 60lbs, anything over 70 is a flat out fight. I shoot 59 to stay out of people's crosshairs.

    Bunch of wimpy jealous people in archery is all. I could pull 90 if I wanted. I could pull 75 without a grunt. But I shoot 59 to keep the haters happy.

    I would have the same opinion as the guy making the comment, but I wouldn't voice it unless asked. Then I would answer, but not in a derrogatory manner. What somebody else shoots is not my decision.
