    Default Back-up bow???

    Do you guys have back-up bows??? I think I'm experienced enough to be able to buy a bow from a shop, spend a few hours setting it up, and sighting in, and go hunt with it. I do have a back up bow, but I'm thinking of reducing my inventory.

    I do for sure, my vectrix xl is my back up for my trykon. Its not a real big deal for deer hunting, but when im 5 hours away from home for 10+ days i always take the backup. Seen guys break stuff a few times and have to pack up.
