Agreed. Much better off finding a specialist. I once took my shotgun to gander mtn to get fixed and that was a huge mistake. I will no longer use the big stores for any work on equipment.

When I lived in New Mexico, I use to go hunting in Colorado all the time. Did go elk hunting once and had a blast.

I've done it in AZ but my dad would prefer Montana. He took a great one out of there a couple years ago

It's definately not the same as it used to be. I used to hunt it a lot but it's geting tough to kill many ducks there anymore. The timber is all but gone.

I've only been duck hunting once, but it was a lot of fun.

Such a thing doesn't exist.

I'm in the market for one myself and I'm going to wind up spending way too much.

Anyone wanting to unload a good youth bow? Now that I'm shooting quite a bit, my oldest boy seems very eager. Don't want to spend a ton though because who knows when he may lose interest.

Get a kit from Cabela's, you will have everything you need to shoot, on a decent frame, for a reasonable price.

Theres no sense to look at a Hoyt or Matthews until you are sure you want to invest the money, though you can find them used occasionally for a good price.

Try archerytalk.com and look in the for sale thread. Most of the folks on there are pretty decent.

Went and hung a couple stands this weekend. After lots of sweat and a bad case of poison oak I think I will be staying out of those woods for a little while.

The ticks are crazy this year. I've got a couple of cameras out but I don't want to check them.
