Who's getting a .........
new bow this year?
What are you getting?
West-T where are the pics of the AE??? Isn't there a forum rule about it being manditory to post pics of any new or used bow someone buys?

A little known fact !
I'm buying the grandkids another bow , one is not enough , as they no doubt want to grow up and be a great cold weather deer hunter and jerky maker like their bow shooting grandfather !
I just brought them another autoloading Remington 1187 , so they can shoot better than me , which many of them do now , as they want to beat me in archery now !

What kind of bow you gonna buy them Gramp's?

Here's what I think !
I got them a Mission Menace , it's a few years old now but works great !
I'm thinking of getting one of those Genises bows that is made by Mathews , so the girls can shoot it !

i looked at them for my daughter too, they look to be nice shooters. But if I remember right it wasn't a easy task to adjust the draw length (had to change the cam) as they grew so I went with a darton ranger for my oldest.

The Darton Rangers are very solid shooters. My daughter used her's for 3 years and passed it along to her cousin who has been using it for the last 2.
The draw lengths are easily adjusted without a trip to the pro-shop just as long as you have a few basic tools and know how to tune a bow. Fast enough to shoot deer at low poundage too. My oldest shot two deer at 35 pounds with it and my nephew has 3 or 4 under his belt with it at around 40 to 45 pounds.
They have been out long enough a guy might be able to find a good used one although they are not a real pricey bow(compaired to a mathews) to begin with.

I got a new target bow yesterday actually. Well it's new too me anyway.....
Got it all taken apart and cleaned up last night and the correct cams put on. Gotta build a new string today so I can shoot it a little and start playing with the stabs a bit until my new string material comes and I can build a set next week.

Those 60 to 70 pound limbs would sure throw a arrow.....how those shoulders mate?
I use to pull back 70 like nobodies business 10 years ago. 65 makes me grunt anymore, when I get down to 60 and under it gets comfortable and steady for target. If you struggle to draw 70 are you gaining enough speed to make up for the unstable sight pic?
I think my 50 to 60 pound limbs on my AE topped out around 63 pounds once I had it set up.
