    High Country Ultra Force split limb, 2 cam bow, older bow, but shoots great with peep sights and a mechanical release. Been Hunting sticks and strings for about 35 yrs. I still wish I had my old Bear Alaskan bow I had in the early 80's.:D

    I bow hunt, I'm shooting a PSE Carrera with a tru glow sight that has a little light, drop away rest, carbon express arrows & rage 2 blade mechanical broad heads. I bought it new about 10 yrs ago, it only shoots 310 fps but still does the trick.

    Just noticed you are in San Antonio, I was born on Lackland AFB. My bow season sucked, didn't even see anything but I hunt in GA & the bow season is only 4 weeks, it's hard hunting so far away and having a short bow season but I did get a doe & 5 point in rifle season, deer season ended this past Tuesday. I'll have to wait till September to try again with my bow.

    Cool. I live on the NE side but work real close to lackland. I love the texas deer season. But mostly private land and way over priced to get a lease

    Shooting a bowtech tomkat, first and only bow but I've been hooked ever since. Taken a few bull elk and a bear. Just got my wife a Bear apprentice and I think she's hooked now, we both have javelina hunts in a few weeks and she wants to try out her new bow on one!
