    I know this will get people going, what bow do you prefer? I shoot a Bear TRX currently but would sure like a Matthews or a Hoyt.

    Just purchased a new AR a few months ago. Took me a while to decide on whether to go with the AR, Mathews, or Hoyt. Got to shoot all three a good bit and I am very happy with my selection.

    LittandJake,
    I've owned Hoyt, PSE, Martin, Bear, Jennings, Browning and ProLine.

    I currently own a Darton Maverick and love it. :tu

    Archery technology is at an all time high and there are a lot of good bows on the market. However, I refuse to pay $500 and up for the new ones. I'll let someone else take the "blood bath" and I'll purchase the used ones.

    I also enjoy traditional archery. :) I own an Assenheimer custom recurve and Hoyt Pro Medalist. Both are a lot of fun.

    Good hunting, Bowhunter57

    Right now I shoot a Parker Hunter Mag II. I do like some of the features that are on the Matthews bows.

    I would like to know a little more about the Parker bows. Any feedback is good. I have a friend of mine at deer camp and he swears they are as good as any Matthews or Hoyt.

    I'm a traditional guy. Right now I'm shooting a Wapiti recurve, but I really enjoy shooting longbows as well. Just depends on the mood :D

    LittandJake;

    I've got nothing but praise for my Parker. The reason I went with thenm is they are a home grown product. They are located here in Virginia. You might want to check out their web site, www.parkerbows.com

    I shoot a PSE Beast 60-70 pound, it is set up with 28.5 draw. The bow has soft hatchet cams and is about 39" long, short but yet a forgiving bow.

    I have matched this bow with aluminum arrows and am getting a nominal 240 fps, but the bow shoots quietly and seems very accurate. I am contemplating using feathers instead of vanes to see how my groups look. Overall the most comfortable bow I have shot in awhile.
