Parker bows.

Recommended Posts

ive been looking for a new bow. Hopefully under 500 bucks. I shoot left handed and short draw. I went to cabelas and the guy there had me shoot a parker buck hunter xp. It felt nice. Does any one have any experience with this bow. Good or bad. Or does any one have any other bows to check out. I want to buy from cabelas because i got a bunch of gift cards. Any advice would be great thanks

I bought a Parker BuckHunter package when I started three years ago and love it. It is fast enough and very quite with my limb and string savers as well as stabilizer. The advice I would have is to try out several bows and instead of buying a package like I did, talk to the sales people/pro shop staff and choose every item - rest, sight, peep, etc. on your own according to your own tastes. Will save you time and money down the road. Good luck.

Parker makes a nice bow. I think the Buckhunter is a 35" axle to axle bow. This is a nice length; it is still compact and yet forgiving. I have never owned a Parker but have shot a lot of them. They are quality; they just don't do a ton of advertising so not as many people have heard of them. I think they used to make that bow in a package that came with arrows and a release. Nice looking camo too (it shouldn't matter but, hey, it mine as well look nice too!).

One other thing. I have had a few minor issues with the bow at first, such as the cable guard rod popping out once. I called them and within two days, I got a new rod, screw, bottle of locktite and a hat. Great customer service and the guy (in Virgina) on the customer service line started talking bowhunting with me after we resolved the issue.

      It’s still a blast to fish

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
