    I was set up in my blind with a bow working a tom last spring, he had been gobbling but shut up, I kept calling softly. About 15-20 minutes later I started hearing noise coming up the hill right to me. Next thing I see is a hunter in full camo, facemask and all, he was in gun range(40 yds or so) and it was a little thick.

    He then proceeds to set up a decoy and gets behind a tree. Yeah, my blind is camo, but it was in the middle of an old logging road. A good "AHEM" got his attention and he skulked away down the hill.

    Black is fine by me. I wouldn't blink an eye on the color.

    I agree. Black bows look real nice and I think they'd blend fine in the woods. I'll be finding out this season as well.

    One thing that strikes me about buying a black bow, not having to worry about matching the camo for this or that accessory. Get the black rest, sight, stabilizer and quiver. It all matches and black accessories are cheaper too!

    I like a guy that thinks about his wallet, too. I knew there had to be something I liked about you.

    When I was younger I thought with something else, now that I'm older I think with my wallet.
