Re: How do you pull a bow with 240lb ?

Yes Wes, How have you been? They still say I need rotators cuff surgery. I failed my heart stress test but when they took my blood work before doing my Angeoplasti is showed high levels of creatine and something else that meant my kidneys weren't functioning right. So they took away all anti inflamm...

How do you pull a bow with 240lb ?

Hey Guys I have been out of the game for a while. I shot a Vortex but it was stolen this spring by a prescription addicted junkie. I have started looking for a new bow or new to me bow.

I see these Matrix's and have no idea how I would pull one back. Did they develop a different system to cock them?

Well to tell the truth if I post a pic you don't like don't look at my post. If you are admin remove my post and maybe I will go away on my own maybe you will ban me. I will not apologize for posting blood or guts on a hunting forum. I would not post these same photo's on a Martha Stewart forum. As ...

Congratulation on your deer! But I don't think those photos are appropriate for this family forum. Maybe some of the more experienced members of this forum can set some examples of showing some respect for the animals we harvest. I don't harvest deer I kill them. You harvest corn. Gutting a deer is...

I got to bed late and mad. I woke up at 4:00 and decided I was tired and went back to bed. I woke back up at 5:21...
