The new cam and a half system has to be the best thing to happer to bows since the compound!! I shot it last week and was really impressed. It depends on what model you want and your ability and experiance. I am really impressed with the supertec bow, it has the spiral cam and a half and is for advanced archers but it seemed not to kick and was scorching arrows at over 330 fps. not what i would choose for a hunting bow but there are alot of other models available with this new cam.
yea the new cam and 1/2 bows shoot great they are very forgiving and quick so you don't give up speed , I bow hunt with a hoyt and hoyt only. the next bow that im going to buy is a hoyt cybertec bad little bow if you have a chance to shoot one i would highly recommend it, the feel of the bow is just great.
I just got a new 2003 Hoyt Ultra Tec cam 1/2. In one word, SWEET!!!!!!!
Forgiving, Forgiving, Forgiving
Virtually no hand shock
Quiet - I have done nothing but add my site to it and this bow is deadly quiet. My friends at the range never heard it even fire when I first shot it.
Fast - I am getting 276 fps with a Beman 340 Hunter ICS , plastic 4" fletching, 100 grain head, and the Easton nock. Thats not bad for a hunting weight arrow.
Solid wall at full draw. Love the way this bow works and shoots.
if you like the 2003 ultratec you should shoot a 06. lol. so much better. all i have to say is i own 4 and dont have anyother brand inmind. its smooth and fast. i have an 05 ultramag that im probly going to sell. its 50-60lbs and 27-29 1/2 draw. PM me if interested. also this bow is mint condition.
One of the most important components of deciphering a new hunting area is distinguishing between the summer and winter ranges for the game that you plan to pursue. Without knowing this you cannot make reliable assumptions about where the game will be come opening day. Knowing these areas will allow you to take the current weather (as well as the past couple weeks) and apply that to the landscape and make an educated guess as to where you might find that big buck or bull.
There are a couple ways...
