Default Paper killer that you can take in the woods?

At my first Tuesday night league night I couldn't help but notice that I was one of about 30 that had a bow that could actually be taken into the woods and hunted with... I guess I really want to update my bow for a great 5-spot shooter but don't want to loose the choice to take it hunting. So that means no shinny chrome or 50" lengths... What do you say folks, what are the best target bows that are still hunt able, but keep in mind that the primary use will be either 3-d or 5-spot.

OH and let me add... I know that everyone has the best brand and that I should buy the one that is best for me... but of the major brands what ones should I ask to shoot? I would never just blindly buy a bow based off name, but you gotta start somewhere.

At least you've gotta plan that is an alternative to having a store push something on you. Now, if I had to pick one, out of my mostly Bowtech arsenal to do triple duty, it would be the Specialist. It may or may not be the bow that picks you but at least it's something to try.


Good Luck.

Talking A little known fact !

I have always wanted a Jennings X-master bow , but today would buy a Hoyt Pro-Tec or simular Hoyt bow !

I like a man size bow , mostly because I stand 6' 2" with a 30 inch draw and don't want to look like I'm shooting one of my grandson's bow !

Now you know and you are !

I've never shot 5-spot but I use my Hoyt katera for hunting and a lot of 3d shoots and I usually do really good with it. I used to shoot the hunter release class but started shooting the open classes some to get a little more distance from the target. I'd like to get another katera and have them set up, one for hunting and one for 3d ect.

If you have a chance to try the Chiller, please let us know how it felt in your hands after the shot. Not saying it would be a killer paper shooter just think it looks fast at low poundage and light.
