Welcome to the forum! Nice bow. How are you liking your Equinox? Mine has filled every tag I've bought since 2010.

Hi Mathew. Welcome to the forum. That's an awesome and reliable bow you've got there. When set up correctly it's scary accurate. Enjoy! There's a wealth of knowledge on this forum and you'll find the members are more than happy to help you out any way they can. :D

Nice bucks. I hear you about carrying it around. I'm pushing 57 and it isn't getting any lighter. I'm gonna keep on walk ans stalking as long as I can, then either buy a Grizzly or a deluxe ground blind. The ground blind is looking more and more attractive each year. :D What is your favorite type of hunting?

Hi Rex I would love to get a 380 right now. Maybe if I sell my Harley. I just got the new bolts for my Equinox I need to get up to the farm try them out. :wink:

Welcome...

I bow hunt in Arenac County. Deer hunting in your state is awesome...
A touch of frost has heightened your awareness and your heart steadily beats in anticipation. Your senses are suddenly alert to the movement on the forest floor and you realize that the moment of harvest is at hand.

From what I see you need to be less concerned about the weight of that bow and more concerned about the weight of those bucks! :shock: ....very nice! :wink:
