    Happens to everyone I guess. Mine would be a M-15 Cougar Magnum. I had that bow from 1983-1998. Bought it when I was a poor PFC stationed in GA. Best bow I ever had. There's no telling how many Whitetail went down to that bow. Simple set-up with a TM-Hunter rest and a Fine-Line sight.

    In 1998 I used the Cougar as a trade-in when I bought a New Bengal XRG. Hated myself the next day. Never took a single animal with the Bengal. It was 2004 when I finally purchased another Martin that I liked as much as the M-15 Cougar.

    Our oldest has a 2010 Warthog that I gave him and I still have my 2004 Razor & Cougar Magnum along with a Warthog and Firecat. I won't part with another.

    Thats an easy one for me. Need a bow to hunt with, another for 3d, would like a 3rd for field, but the 2nd could be that. Have those. Have to have a recurve or two. Got 'em. All the rest are inventory!
