It's over 12 years old but does the job.

I know this probably isn't the kind of bow you're looking for but I made it over 20 years ago and it still delivers. It has a Pauduk handle with red elm laminations. 63 lb draw, 60" nock-to-nock. Port Orford cedar arrows with Zwicky Black Diamond heads. I've shot a few black bears with this setup and got full pass throughs. Here's a little 3x3 Sitka Blacktail I shot last year. The arrow never touched a rib and zipped right through him and sailed off down the hill.

P.S. Longgun. I shot this up by Tweetybird lake in the same clearcut you shot your 94 5/8 Sitka.

longbow showed a fantastic bow.

Here is my bow, loaded and on the go!




And, just for fun, one of the stern too!




I really like this bow shot:

There's a pic of my Diamond Outlaw bow with last year's elk in this thread:

Opening day success

Since last year I changed out the WB for a QAD drop away rest. Specs are as follows:

DL: 27.5"
DW: 70 lbs
Custom black/blue strings from Mammoth bowstrings. Truglo 5 pin sight. QAD drop away rest. Arrows are 28 inch long carbon stalker extremes tipped with a 100 grain NAP shockwave broadhead. Total arrow weight of 416 grains. Never shot it through the chrony, but archery calculators have me somewhere around 275 to 280 fps.

Aint nothin wrong with that setup and speed.. I'm diggin the QAD drop away so far but, what i'm really digging the most is my Black Gold verdict 5 pin with the dovetail.. I was hesitant to spend $250 but, am now glad I did. First time shooting today I noticed an improvement in my shooting from my last bow.. I credit a lot of that to the distance my pins are from my riser
( which is a greater distance) Also the pins being .19 still light up super bright... Seems to be a well protected and solid housing and base

I'm wondering if I need to stop being a cheapskate and invest some serious money into a good sight. It seems like once I get out to 40 yards or more my pins are pretty blurry, and I have a hard time being very precise.
