Archery?

Ok.. Who's into it?

I have a bet going with my buddy chuck.. and the payout is going on an archery elk hunt this year. I shot as a kid.. but haven't in 25 yrs I guess?

Off to ebay.

I just picked up a Mathews Z7 Xtreme
Draw weight 60-70 lbs
Draw length 29", can go 24-30" with different cam, not included and dont have
Axle to axle 28"
Brace height 7 3/8"
Let off 80%
IBO up to 330 fps
Bow weight* 3.98 lbs
AXT 3 pin sight
Schaffer Opposition rest
Alpine 3 arrow detachable quiver
Limbsaver stabilizer

So.. I know shit all about archery that said, who wants to go fling some arrows?? I gotta get my shit together! lol

Just got into it myself, and have been playing in the yard.

I got a Diamond Archery "Core" and it's been pretty fun, despite how bad I am at it.

You're welcome to come out and play. I've got a target and such.


Next thing I need is a stand for arrows and bow while I shoot. I think I'm going to get creative with some of the wood I have laying around this weekend if I get a chance.

I forgot to mention I picked up a crossbow a couple years ago, It's actually pretty fun the 150lb draw is a bit much at times but fun nonetheless. I'm totally down to come fling some bolts if I and the crossbow are allowed

Wow, that's some bow! I've got two older models, can't hit the side of a barn. I also have a 150# crossbow, never shot it yet.

I'm working my way through the honey-do list today so I can do some shooting tomorrow morning, if you're interested and the weather holds.

my groups are tightening up, but now I'm hitting arrows against each other more often--and I broke 2 yesterday.

Shot for the first time in a couple months last night. Holy crap my arms have gotten weak.

Really felt good, needed it.

try scooting up or finding a better backstop?

I'd have lost a few more if that tree wasn't there.


Keep a chisel hand if you use wood...ask me how I know...

yeah, I was definitely shooting with open forest behind the target..

I figured out a backstop helps quite a bit. Haven't sunk anything into a tree yet.. lol
