Bows

I love to hunt archery. But have only used a compound bow!! What bows do you all enjoy hunting with?

I had a recurve, but to be proficient with it takes lots of practice and I just didn't have the time or desire to spend the time with it.  So, I use a compound bow now with sights and a release.  Resisted going to a release until a few years ago, but it definitely improves accuracy and consistency.

I enjoy bow hunting and in fact I am going out this morning.

I have a Martin Sabre that I

I have a Martin Sabre that I bought about 5 years ago.  Dual cam, shoots 300 fps, give or take.  Plus, it was only around $450-$500 fully equipped, so it's not a bank breaker.

Martin bows have a reputation

Martin bows have a reputation for being quality accurate bows.  you can't go wrong with them. They just don't advertise to the extent that Mathews and some of the other bow manufacturers do, but advertising doesn't make a quality bow.

Hoyts makes some nice bows. 

Hoyts makes some nice bows.  I forget the name of their new carbon bow but it looks like it could be featured in star wars.
