I have only $230 into my Ridge Hunter setup.
Nap Pro 3000 Rest
Vital Gear 1100 spike sight
Alpine 5-sof loc quiver
Shoots bullets!
I need a new string, which i will get soon from Hutch, that will run around $60.



I'm just amazed at the masses spending upwards of $1000-1400.00....

My inexpensive setup gets the job done by far...

Quictune 750: 40$
Hoyt pro stab: 60$

So about 100$ for my scepter V.

But I know what you mean, I see people with huge amounts of gear on their platform at my local archery club. I don't get it either.

It's matter of choice. Want the best, you pay for the best. Yep, nice to drive to your hunting spot in a new 4 wheel drive muscle truck, but you also can get there with a beat up Chevy S10.

Martin has had two great target bows over the last 4 years, the Shadowcat and Scepter V. Both at a price of $800 plus. Tack on accessories of desire and investment can climb to over $1500.00 easily.

$200 for the IM loaded plus the $60 I spent for a Trophy Ridge Drive sight and $10 for a Cobra Diamondback drop rest.

$150 for the Bengal loaded w arrows and quiver and hard case, release

Same for an '11 Exile that will be here soon

New strings on IM and Bengal from Hutch when I refinished both bows at less than $30.

So far I'm under $700 for 3 completely set up, awesome shooting bows:cool:

Hey, lets not forget our acquisitions of years. 4 Sure Locs, 5 scopes, 3 Super peeps, tons of standard peeps, 1 dozen arrows for each of 3 bows and a few dozen arrows in reserve, 5 stabilizers, couple dozen of "gots to haves," half dozen or more arrow rests, extras of everything we might need, and..... ???

In my truck; one hard back brief case full of arrows rests, one hand carry bag full of something, one 2 pound coffee can with assorted field points, one tool case with tools to set up a bow,
one Chronograph, Dremel tool, drill, one Martin fletching jig, one Jo-Jan fletching jig, 500 ? new assorted fletchings, 3 tubes of glue, misc. tools, Electronic weight scale..... My finger are cramping....

And that in my bedroom (at least 3 catch-all trays full, one bow on the wall and one...two under the bed), and in my garage (one...three bows, one older Apple bow press, 6 or 7 dozen arrows...???, and what I have at the shop (TX4 Pearson, magnetic grain scale, couple dozen arrows, misc tools, and...).

Two fully equipped target bows and one...make that two fully equipped hunting bows....
Heck, I got enough in my bow case to darn near fully equip another target bow.

Hey, I can start my own archery shop ;)

I have about $600.00 into my setup for my CougarFC, not including my arrows, releases and hard case.

This was the least expensive of my setups in a long time. The last couple of bows I had bought were both about $800.00 bare bow. My 2001 BowTech Black Knight2 in 2001 full setup cost me about $1200.00.

A person doesn't need to spend that much, it just depends on what you are trying to do. In 2001 I was trying to push the speed up as high as I could while staying shootable and huntable. Now I just want comfortable and simple.

My hunting vehicle is a 1995 Ford Conversion Van.

Sorry guys, :o
but the firecat was given to me for a few hours helping a friend, the carbon arrows were a Christmas present, the string by Hutch was 27 bucks and that was a birthday present, the xs carbon sight i'm getting from Cabelas was purchased from atta boys from work as well as the NAP drop away.
so not really a penny out of my pocket, LOL I think the Lord had a lot to do with it :cool:
I think my ... Frugal.. Scottish/Irish heratige is shinning through,

I usually think of myself as a spendthrift, but in comparison to what some of you have spent, I've really splurged.

For the Pantera I bought a few weeks ago I went all out. I was inspired by my wife who had just blown $300 on a hairdo by accident, so I felt justified with buying new.



Pantera
$270


Plano Hard Case
$29


TR FireWire v3
$50


TR Revolution
$40


Viper Peep
$8


D-Loop material - 5'
$9




Total:



$406














Crud - I hadn't totaled that up before. :(

Still got receipts, But I got three bows, a rytera, a martin and bear.

I spent a lot of cash my wife is pissed! lol. I'll just speak of my new 2013 Alien.

Not including the price of my the bow, so far I got;
peep sight- $7
spot hogg 7 deadly pins- $202
NAP Carbon rest - $110
NAP Black stabilizer- $39
total $358 not including tax, so more like $400.

This is not including my trigger- $110
new target- $169
6 more new arrows, Gold Tip xt hunters- $51.46
nockturnals- $24.99
just need a wrist sling and I'm complete for now. I like to buy stuff new I don't like used just my preference. I just know what I got no worries.
My total is around $1853.45, not adding my sling price not added. Price makes me seem stupid to pay all that but it was worth it. TAX is what kills you. Thats just one bow I don't want to price my Alien X probably in the same ball park.

And then put your bow up for sale a back yard sale and maybe get offered $100.00 :mad:

I'd say on average, I've got $500-600 invested per bow complete. Still let's me buy two for the price of one bow from the "big three". Most of mine are set up with the same accessories, HHA sights, TT or QAD rests, Fletcher peeps, cat whiskers, and whatever stab does the trick for that particular bow. I swap quivers back and forth from bow to bow among several of them.

NO i wouldn't sell my bows my son will get them. I put too much time and money to lose out. Plus I like all Martin Bows!

I had nearly 600 into my exile before I just sold it. I already have a total investment if around 1200 with the 2013 alien and I don't even have it yet.

I can't put a price on all the stuff that i have aquired over the years but if you want to talk about all the stuff that's just on my bow right now? stabilizer 20, peep and tube 10, rest 40, quiver 40, Sights 40, loop 5, sling 10, arrows w/ bheads and field tips 160? Wow never really thought about it that's 325 if my math is correct off the top of my head and I don't really own anything fancy. my motto is always to keep it as simple as possible. the less stuff you have, the less you have to worry about. just aquired an old panther that needs dressed up too. I wonder how much I'll put into an old bow?

Enough for a down payment on a house, lol. :cool: That is if we count tools, tackle and assorted gear. I have a stabilizer that cost more than three of my bows. I am one of the first ones to say hunting should be inexpensive, but this target game is a whole nother story.

Yup, I dont want to add the tree stands, tripod stands, binos, range finders, knives, boots, camo sets, cold weather gear, safety harnesses, packs, targets, fletching gear, and nik naks. I really dont want to add my firearms up either. But at least a country boy can survive.;)
