Alpine Frontier w/ a drop away rest. Nothing fancy with the arrows and broadheads just some from wallyworld. I got it last year and it shoots right at 300fps at 60lbs of draw. I can hit the bullseye out to about 75 yards with my rig.
A little different here. I shoot a Horton Legend 175 crossbow. I use the Rage 2 blade and Easton xx75 carbon arrows. However this year I may be investing in a Matthews Monster. The shop I buy my stuff at is having a huge sale on the 09' models. I won't use it for this season but next year is a definite possibility.
Here's some pics of my Alpine Frontier, Gold tip expedition hunters, eastman terminator 2 broadheads, Drop away rest, 3 pin tru glo, and 5 arrow quiver. I also have a carbon express fluflu with a judo point ready for the squirrls and coons.
Not to bad of a setup it shoots nice and flat and pretty fast. I was on some what of a budget when i got it last year.
It was a 2007 Patriot rebranded as the Patriot II for sale at Sportsmans Warehouse... was a one-year deal they did with their own "Private Label" Bowtech. Aparently Bowtech does not do clearance or outdated model sales... they buy up all the unsold bows and melt down the bodies for reuse. In '07 Sportsmans Warehouse bought up all the unsold Patriots and set up this deal.
I got the bow for under $800 brand new, including the stuff I added... rest, site, quiver, etc... made my cousing insanely jealous because his 101st Airborne cost almost double that by the time he was done...
I keep it around 65lb draw, 31"
Carbon Express arrows tipped with 125gr Shuttle T's
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
