    A 60# bow at your draw length will actually be close to 70 pounds, which means you will be holding that at full draw which is a lot different than a compound with let-off. I'd suggest a lighter bow...

    Thanks all.

    Rockyhud, it was a really good show, but it came after I shot. 4 toms and a jake came through right after, the jake found my dead bird and was pecking at it behind the 2 strutters.
