    The wife and I were in the archery shop the other day getting some new vanes. I picked up a new guardian to take a closer look, my wife looked at me and said NO.

    I have always used my 3D rig as my back-up, but since this year I am shooting the Ultra-Elite for 3D... it may be difficult to use it as a back-up this year.

    I was planning to get a back-up, but by the looks of things, i should be lucky if I get to hunt at all this year!

    Reducing inventory huh. Let's see, 2 weeks ago selling, 2 days ago buying.

    The good thing about chrome is the reflection from the woods. Now that would be REAL tree camo.

    I am feeling bad that I do not have a dedicatyed 3D bow anymore. We'll see what 08 brings. Maybe Ben will decide he does not need the chrome BT he just bought.

    Well since my Guardian is temp. out of business I can either use my Martin couger or the PSE Bruin. At least I don't have to stop shooting. And I have seen a few travel great distances, be out there a very short time and something happened that they had to pack up and leave. Mainly they would catch there bow strings on sharp bushes and not have any backup. But I did see a person drop one from his tree stand and it snapped. He lived about 5 hours away. But he said he couldn't get it fixed until after the weekend. Ruined his trip. So I would always suggest a back up.
