As my user name implies I am from Vermont. I have just purchased a dicks "Bone Hunter" which I am now learning is a Martin Cheetah. I am happy that I got a ready to shoot Bow for $300. I am even happier to find out that it is actually basically the same bow as a popular model. I am not concerned with the fact that it is from 09 because it is replacing a 10 year old PSE compound therefore anything is an upgrade.
The Bow is going to my favorite local store for setup as I do not trust the guys at Dicks to tell a bow from a hole in the ground (please advise if you know differently). I basically wanted to introduce myself here and open myself to any advice etc that can be given. I plan to hunt Deer and the occasional VT black bear. I have bear on my property in Vermont and while it is safe for a bow or a firearm shot neighbors I am sure would prefer the bow.
Thanks and Happy Shooting, Vermonter
