Sorry if I left your bow out, I tried to get the majority I could remember off the top of my head. The poll only allowed up to 15 choices so it's limited. It will be interesting to see what bows are out there this season.

Bought my Mathews SB February of '05 and have since killed 3 whitetail, a ram, a goat, and a turkey. Our whitetail season opens 1 October and I fully intend to take at least 3 more whitetails.

Run good luck - they're hard fast moving targets, and small. My advice take lots of arrows. ;)

Hey Eric if I could have put my entire list up there it was around 30 selections. If you're comfortable with it that great, best of luck hunting with bow hand, any bow. :rofl:

I've been hunting with my old Browning Stalker for about 12 years. Wow I didn't realize it was that old. I've killed around 25 to 30 whitetails with it and it still doing the job. I have been thinking about a new one though. To be honest I'm not looking forward to the shopping. There so many good bows out there it will be a hard choice.

I bought my Outback in the summer of 04'. I have only taken one deer with it so far. Only saw 2 deer last year when I was hunting but they went the wrong way.
