My name is James but I go by Jimbo (Bo). I'm from Alabama and I'm just getting back into hunting. I haven't been since I was a little boy. I've always loved it but never had a place to hunt or money to join a club. The place my dad took me when I was a boy is hours away and nowadays running my own business seems to toss the hunting trip to the wayside. Now I'm married, 29, and have a buddy who just leased some land 45 min away. I'm so excited to get back into the hunt.
It's amazing what is now on the market that I had no idea existed. I've already bought a new bow, had it's draw fit to me and had a few add ons installed. I'm shooting dead center at 20 yards but still need to site in at 30 and 40....or maybe I should set it to 20,30,50? I dunno...
The bow I bought was a 70lb Martin Exile 2011 model. I love it!! It's compact and looks great. It came with sights, rest and a quiver. I got an excellent deal on it and 6 Victory Vforce V1 arrows. My broadheads I selected was 100gr NAP Thunderheads. I like the look of the more traditional broadhead.
I've posted in another thread about my rest and I think I'll go Trophy Ridge Revolution although I had been eyeing the WB before I saw the TRR. What is the difference in the Micro and Non-Micro TRR?
Also, I've ben seeing these cool glowing nocks. Saw them at BPS (nockturnals) and I'm thinking about picking them up. I'd hate to lose those expensive arrows/broadheads. You guys have luck with them? Are they legal to use in Alabama?
Are there any other cool gadgets I need to look into? I need every advantage I can get. Still looking for my first kill. I'll post when I get it.
Here is my setup. What do you think?
Thanks guys and good luck hunting!
