Thanks alot Hutch, my wife hates turkeys & want's to stick one or several in the worst way. I emailed her the link to study up on. She pulled out her bow & said lets go to town & want Marvin (our set up guy) to check it over. Wanting to get her shooting again & reinterested in archery, we head to Reno.

A little back story on her & her bow. She has a Diamond Razor Edge 30-60lb and is @37lbs now. Last year she pinched a neck muscle & it interfeared with shooting. I got her a custom Oneida Hawk for the easier draw & more let off and she, like me, didn't like the noise from the lever bow. She started shoting the Diamond again with no pain. She has herself convinced the Diamond is a "kids" bow because it's so short. I've been trying to get her into a longer risered bow with more ATA too. These are the specs : Brace Height 7 inches, Draw Length 19-29 inches, Draw Weight 30-60#, Axle to Axle - 31, Adjustable Let Off 75%, Weight 3.3 Pounds. This is also a twin cam bow.

I have been trying to point her to the Ridge Hunter 35-50lb for the features of the bow and room for growth. She's not crazy about the looks of it & as most of you know if we like the tools we use they perform better, no matter what it is. Well, after looking at a few, the Bear Anarchy $899. and the Hoyt Carbon Element $1249. are the front runners. Was told the Bear will go 38-50lbs, it's very light 3.8lbs, way longer riser, 35.25 ATA, and 80% let off. Her favorite, the Element has more limb options 30-40, 40-50, 50-60, 55-65, 60-70, 70-80, 32 inch ATA, 6 3/4" brace height, 80% let off, a longer riser, and 3.6 pounds. So, now I'm looking at trying to find a used Carbon Element for under $800. She is also left handed.
Again, thanks for the video Hutch :cool: Just doggin ya man. I'll get her a new one if I have to to keep her interested but I sure wished the Ridge Hunter appealed to her like it does to me.

I would love to shoot a turkey with my bow. Turks and hogs are on the list of things to hunt.

I can't believe I missed this thread, Great video. I always aim under the wing joint. I tend to shoot before they start strutting.

This is perfect. I'm getting so jacked for this season. I haven't shot a turkey in 6 years! It will be almost exactly 6 to the day when I shot my first with my dad and kicked off my hunting career. It will actually be exactly 1 week past when I got out with him that day. This will be my first of hopefully many with a bow.

This is another good post I found for turkey shots. http://blog.stickemarchery.com/?p=2445
