    I've looked at some Hoyt bows and various other brands. For those most part I've just walked the bow isles of Cabela's, Gander Mountain, Bass Pro Shop, etc. I don't really know where to start. My father has a Bowtech compound bow and he seems to enjoy it just fine. I'm really not sure where to start, though. I like to buy things that would last a life time but I look for good deals. I guess you could say I'm all about bang for the buck. I'm a value shopper. Any suggestions?

    I have never bow hunted. I have just gotten the intrest here in the last 2 years or so. I am about like you, I have been to Dick's Sportting Goods and Bass Pro and looked at a few. The Bass Pro in Concord, NC has an indoor archery range and I have tried out a Bear Assault and it felt good but the price was, yikes!!

    I mainly bow hunt with a PSE Whitetail Obsession. When I rifle hunt ( rarely ) I use a Sako 7mm-Mag that was handed down to me from my dad. My dad acquired the gun in a trade for a horse and a horse trailer. I think he came out on the good end of that deal, the rifle is a tack driver.

    In the area I hunt of Texas we have a big problem with hogs. So, for those I usually us a Ruger GP100 in .357 if they're close enough. Otherwise, they get the Sako 7mm-Mag.

    Nice Speed Goat BTW 1flyfisher!

    I would go with either a Bear or PSE bow. Both have incredible backgrounds and won't necessarily "break the bank" like brand such as Matthews will.

    My PSE is 4 years old and all I've replaced on it is the strings which are part of regular maintenance if you shoot a lot.

    All I can tell you about Thompson Center is that my friend is on their tax audit account up in Boston. I haven't ever had anything to do with Black Powder rifles but I have some friends that were into it for a while. They seemed to have really enjoyed the hobby. I also think it would be a fun thing to get in to.
