    "Tournament... I set it on 72 pounds"

    Just wondering why you do that? Most of the tournament shooters i know go down to 50-55 pounds draw weight because you are taking so many shots and can stay steadier then drawing a heavier weight?

    Just curious...

    I'm planning on bow huntin this year and want to check out some bows. Right now I shoot my dads Bear-Buck Master at 60lbs and really don't feel it would be enough for black bear, caribou, or moose. I need to go to a bow shop and do some looking. I think I want a 75-90lb because I can draw and hold that 60lb like its a kids bow.

    The question is, can you hold that bow like a kids bow with a 160 class buck down ur sights. ;-)?

    I have my bow cranked all the way down and it is at 69 lbs. I think you get optimum performance out of your bow when they are cranked out.
