    Default Martin Bows

But in order to get those 10+ deer in one place, you have to feed them there, a lot, over several weeks. Once established it can be very effective.
    Food plots can, no always, offer deer something on the order of a kid after candy. I consider it baiting, but it's legal in most states. I have and my wife has sat right in the middle of a "herd" of deer. In our pasture I have sat in the stand and had 11 around me all at once. We have what is more a crossing point, between fields, cover and bedding areas right in our pasture. Okay, we are lucky, but not always successful. I'm getting picky. Once, in a corn field, my wife and I and our two dogs laid right in the middle of 16 deer. But then they knew we were hunting yotes, not them. My wife had probably the most dreamable experience. While just walking about in the nearby strip mine property she unknowning sat in the middle of 30 deer. I guess this deer grouping is called Yarding, but more a somewhat yearly get together. 30 deer either bedded down or just standing around like they could care less of her presence and her with her dog, Tiger.

    This was not to take away from the issue raised above, but to say, yeah, it can happen, but sure as heck not as often as in the videos and hunting shows.

    Hey Simple Life,
    While the Martins can be very competitively priced, I wouldn't call them "cheap" by any means. I recently purchased a Warhog and paid over $750.00 for it....pretty comparable to many "top name" bows I think. I liked the feel of the bow, the looks of the Martin line and the reputation of the company....I probably would have paid more for the Martin, but didn't have to. The admonition to shoot what you like is a good one......anyone who puts your bow down, if it's a Martin, is simply either foolish or ignorant of the facts. There are some bows out there, not many, that I would consider lacking.....but not Martins bows.
    Take good care!

    Default I like em!!!

    I get so sick of the Hoyt, Matthews, Bowtech crowd they think anything else is just beneth them or something. I will take my new Silencer over any of them any day hands down. Plus I spent half of the average other bows and used that for new sights and other goodies.

    And to think, there are people in this world that think Hoyt invented the style riser that they use.
