    I have the awesome memories and I can still read your great posts and others about hunting. I have been reading Outdoor life and Field & Stream since my school days. I still read the stories from you and others with as much passion as I did back then.

    The guy that works with me's dad talking me into getting a more modern bow. We were picking up some gear and he was out there shooting in the yard and called me over.

    "Shoot this 1 time", he said. It was about 20 yards. It was so easy to pull back and I nailed it twice.

    He explained to me how the newer ones can have the same or better speed with less draw weight .

    Yeah, you can find fairly recent bows on CraigsList and such. If I did buy one, I would take it to a good bow shop to check it for problems, especially with the string/cables, limbs, and cams.

    I had two compound bows blow up in my hand in one season a couple years back. Both managed to slit my bow-hand wrist enough to cause bleeding wounds, one particularly bad.

    And continue to enjoy. Everywhere I have started a Hunting Season thread, I have heard such feedback. It takes me back in time to sitting around, as a boy, and listening to the men in hunting camp tell stories.

    Yep, and sights and releases change the whole art of shooting.
    I still shoot Traditional bows, some that I make myself, but I hunt with fairly modern compound bows.

    Ok, update from saturday. Shot a small wormy 5 pointer that needed to be culled. Once again, the .44 did the job with little effort.

    That makes 3. 1 with crossbow, 2 with the .44.

    Now, this weekend I may go again. This time its the GP100 .357's chance to bag something.
