:up: bowhunting definitely makes you more manly than regular hunting.

note: hunting only adds points to your manliness when you take down animals larger than yourself, or animals capable of killing a full sized human with ease.

Hunting with the following is the most manly, in order of awesomeness:
Your Bare hands: If you hop on a grizzly bear's back and strangle it to death, you win life
A soft object (ex. nerf ball, pillow, etc): Show those animals what opposible thumbs can do
A blade smaller/duller than a basic kitchen knife
A blade that is very large, ie a sword or axe
A blunt object
a spear-like object
a hunting knife
a gun not made for hunting (bazooka, minigun, tank, artillary, etc)
a bow
a pistol
a vehicle (intended hunting)
a rifle/shotgun
a vehicle (unintended "hunting")


There are of course other things that are MORE COOL. like a road flare or something. But that list is pretty much a good idea of the most manly things to hunt with. I'm entirely serious, none of this is sarcastic at all. :up:

not bad, that is almost exactly what i shot my first deer with, although i have now upgraded to a Hoyt Trykon, i got it dirt cheap from a friend.

i hunt deer, and yeah it is a lot of fun.

nice. my dad has a buckmaster, a PSE and and Oneida. i use the Oneida, but havent hunted with it yet. the buckmaster is our only compound, the other two are older recurves.

edit: if you look in the airowgun gallery, none of the players use a release... noobs. i <3 my trigger release!

I use a buckmaster to, they really are a great bow. i only bowhunt Elk and it sure is a rush when you call one in and there awful mad and looking for you. i think bowhunting is one of the greatest sports invented and if you do it properly takes alot of time and patience but can yeild you some great animals

I use carbon fiber arrows as well, on big drawback they are real expensive.

carbon all the way, they are expensive, but imo they are totally worth it.

is that the same material that they make the carbon paintball barrels with?

You, sir, have too much time and imagination on your hands.

actually, i would have to rate blunt objects ABOVE blades...except maybe the dull ones.

I would assume so, it is very light and strong (as far as bending goes)

YEOWCH! that would hurt. lol. i MIGHT go bow hunting for whitetail this fall, but only if i get the hang of my bow pretty quick. if i dont go whitetail hunting this fall then i'll probably hunt turkey with it next spring.

Something that i didnt mention
*my uncle will be giving me one of his releases and a new rest because the rest that's on the bow right now is the cheap rubber-like one.

I shoot a PSE Team Primos...shot archery since I was 4.

For the record an Oneida is a compound...where the limbs pivot is actually the cam...good bows...not for everyone...just inspect the cables in the cam mechanism and have then inspected once a year.

make sure the bow fits you correctly...an inspection by a local shop should cost you next to nothing...it's always worth it...If it were me i'd take it in for a general check up, string, cables, axles, limb pivots and the like.

Sorry I was a factory shooter for awhile and a factory trained bow technician (hoyt, pse and north amercian archery) and my dad was a factory shooter for 2 companies and an olympic archery coach...:D

Oh yeah I love sticks and limbs!!!!!
