I was just curious if anyone hunts or target shoots via archery.

I don't hunt just yet but I do target shoot. I just recently got into a complete ready to shoot outfit which includes a Jennings Buckmaster compound bow, w/sites and a whisker biscut, 70# draw w/ 75% letoff, Easton aluminum arrows (for now) Cobra quick release, and a full plastic case for it all made by Plano.

I got it in trade for some plank stuff. At 30 yards I am getting 3" patterns.

I just plan on target shooting for now and want to get into hunting prolly next year.

Anybody do any of this?

I have a PSE G-force that I havent shot for about 5 years, I was going to get a new string for it and hunt this year. Then my wife decided to buy a quarter of beef and fill the freezer. At 30 yards it will stack arrows on top of each other and about a 6 inch pattern at 60, arrow speed never varies by more than 5 fps.

I shoot a Hoyt Supertec.

At 30 yards if I shoot more than two or three arows at the same spot it starts getting spendy.

Im an avid bowhunter. I shoot a Martin Jaguar compound at a 70lb draw weight. I love bowhunting, there is just something about being able to get that close to big bugling bull elk or a big buck deer. I like going to local 3D target shoots also, very fun and good practice for the actual season.

I would like to attend a few 3D shoots if I get the time but my work schedule does not cooperate with the 3D shoot times.

Archery is VERY addictive. I just can't shoot for 10 minutes and quit..... I have to shoot till it's so dark I can't see anymore. I like it!

If you want to improve your accracy get rid of that whisker biscut and go with a good three prong rest.

Although this may be true, i need to add my 2 cents.....

Last year I was hunting and I was using a pronged rest and I saw this 5 point struttin around his cows on the next ridge so i went after him, and snuck up on him and got about 5 yards away when i drew and my arrow fell off the rest and clanked and off he went. Since then I bought a whisker biscuit rest and have never had this problem again, I can tilt my bow in any direction and it will not fall off or make any noise. may not be AS accurate but its accurate enough for hitting an elk or deer in the vitals.

Billy, altho I cannot bash a pronged rest because I have never used one, I understand your experience. The whisker biscut I have is one that does not have an opening. Therfore you have to slide the arrow all the way thru the center of the biscut and then ckick it onto the string. This does make some noise, but on the other hand you will never have the problem you had costing you a guaranteed shot.

Diverig, you have a pointt I want to ponder, I will switch to a prong rest to see how much more accurate it could be against the WB. The WB seems todo very well for me. I can shoot at least 30 kill shots in a row or until my arm starts hurting (recovering from broken clavicle....AKA...collar bone). But I would like to use somthing that could be a little more accurate. I need to get a new string and cable installed on mine, then I will add a different rest. Until then, it is shooting very well for my standards.

I have a PSE Thunderbolt with a lightening cam. Love it. Very good bow for the money. Cobra sights, and regular teflon coated fork rest. I shoot Snyper mechanical broadheads... They're pure evil.
