    for the past 3 or so years.......i have been using my fletcher .44 caliper release.......smooth, but its holds like a sumbitch. just a little dry moly lube once in a while...good to go, and keeps the springs in good shape.

    yes, I like to hunt, a little anyway.....:D we have a local archery league starting this monday. I have a local 3d shoots that I go through throughout the state, and may I recommend to anyone who may be interested the rinehart 100..50 targets each day...lots of fun but really tiring. It was up in NC last year, but I don't know where it will be this year. All I know it was hot. I shoot a bowtech, with a trufire bulldog release.

    Not much yet, got a pretty good sound system w/ my custom sub box. Plan on adding more lights & a tool box.
    I have a Martin Jaguar, haven't shot it in a couple of years, but am getting the itch again. Bout a target that I have never used, tragic!

    I do both. I'm shooting a Fred Bear Lights Out w/a Redhead trigger. It's smooth and quiet, not the fastest but who needs fast when you have quiet? I would love to get a bow that I could use the same pin out to 40yds. That would be sick. Maybe one of these days I can get me one of those high speed bow's.

    I love bow hunting. I have taken more with the bow than any of my rifles combined. Sadly, I haven't been out in at least 4 years now. I think I wam going to do it this fall though. I need to get the matthews restrung and sighted back in. I miss the old "smack-thud" sound.

    Just remember, speed don't mean anything with out arrow placement. :cool:

    Huntnig in the winter and target in the yard the rest of the year. I've got an old PSE Nova and an even older recurve of unknown origin which I used exclusively this year. Didn't get anything with it but shooting it just feels....right. Getting my 7 year old a Mathews Genesis for his b-day in april. He's been begging me for a bow since he was 4.

    Our organization works with kids at a local youth camp and the last few years we talked them into buying some Genesis bows. Very good bow for kids. Not-for-profit orgs can also buy them at a discounted cost.

    We shot some aerial targets last weekend, love to bowhunt, and we also hosted 5 themed 3-D shoots last year.

    Archery with my family is a blessed combination.

    Hey TRDMAN, gotta plug a real good program if you don't mind.....
