    What is your arrow weight and string configuration? 310 is damn good, I can understand why you are happy. You got a nice fast bow there gravedigger.

    Negative. 73 lbs. is OK, but any more than that will be too much for the limbs.

    i was kind of thinking the same thing about the limbs.the archery shop told me 73 is about it.but i am allways going to want more.for now i fell good about going after elk in september,even better about cougar right now.i just cant wait to get in the deep woods.the 3d corse near my house is getting to ez.they do have 40 targets i shoot at.and befor i hit the 3d i practice with 20 to 80 maybe more shoots.i am just addicted to shooting this bow.i cant hardly get it out of my hands.i go twice a week to shoot the 3ds.then i have 30 yards in my back yard just to calm the itch.i really need to calm down a bit.just a fyi.there are only around 2300 to 2600 registerd bow hunters in oregon.the restrictions that odfw puts on archery is crazy.i only get 1 moth to hunt elk and 1 and a half moths for deer.cougar is year round.

    We have up to 70 yards of shooting outside, and 18 yards in the basement.

    Now you probably will be jealous when I tell you that we have 3 months for archery deer hunting. OH YEAH!

    and i am very.every sate besides oregon caters to archery hunting.i really dont know what the issue is here but its all about the bang bang.we can only shoot one style of broadhead.cant have anyting that lights up.no crossbows.its a bunch of bs.last year we had two general seasons for elk.now its one month and controled for second hunt,with a limited amound of tags.but the 3d and ranges are are few and far between.i meen shooting a bow in oregon is a rare thing.i guess out here it is what it is and have to deal with it.

    Guess wwe are really lucky here, archery deer starts last week of Aug or 1st week Sept and goes thru first weekend of Jan following year. Deer gun is 16 1/2 days. Congrats on the fps. Got a new 2010 Bengal myself and the guys on here have been great at helping out.
