My wife was pretty happy I filled my tag. (on opening day of a multi-season tag no less) If you've ever seen the disney kid movie "Brave", that one scene where the main character jumps out from her chair and shouts "Archery! Archery! I choose Archery..." That was my wife's reaction.

She wanted me to keep rocking the old school setup, shooting fingers with no rear peep. Said it made me unique. My thought was, If I'm going to stick with archery, I want better tackle. Apparently, my father was pretty happy too. Over Christmas, he passed his hunting bow on to me - the one he harvested many deer with. I really wasn't expecting that. As gifts go, I don't think much can surpass something like that being passed down to you. It's not the latest and greatest in archery tackle, but it is a definite improvement and upgrade over my old bow, and given the hunting history of this bow, I just have to use it.

2001 PSE Mohave

I just got it back from jakes a few days ago. New pins, new rear peep, new whisker bisket, and tuned up.

This will be the first bow I have
a.) Used a rear peep with
b.) used a mechanical release with

I am no stranger to a bow. Kiddie bows aside, my first real bow was a PSE Spirit. Used to shoot instinctive with it 2-3 hours a day when I was a kid. The thing is... i didn't want to get back into archery. Honestly, I didn't. It's not that I don't like archery, I was just interested in smoke poles more.

At this point though, I have to concede there's no getting away from it. Elk Season means archery season for me from here on out. Apparently it's a family tradition regardless if i wanted to get back into it or not. Although, I think I'll still use my smoke pole come deer season.

Sigh.. yes, my 5 year old has her own bow. Three of them in fact. I guess somethings just happen on their own.

Wow these are cool stuffs, I am wanting to learn this as a new hobby.

You have a nice bow, and it doesn't matter that it's old. I also have an old one, but when it comes to using it it's a lot more comfortable than any of all these new models of bows. For me, it's more logical to buy an old model of a bow that costs less, and make it custom for you because you will make the same thing if you will buy a new bow, but it will cost you at least twice more expensive. I even if have an old bow can't imagine how I will sell it and use another one, the only thing that I want know to replace is the string silencer, I have already find a site with a lot of cool models, but the problem is that it's hard to choose one. Can you please help me?
