Parker bows.

4 posts in this topic

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.

        Oh, says the guy that just took the plunge! I'm sure it will do your little pan fish ok. Let me know if you need a few Walleye's to try?

      I had a battery op Repala a few years ago and sold it to someone else at our campground. Didn't like the way they just zipped through without following the fillets and lost a lot of meat. Really suk's on a partly frozen fish!   Mine came with a case.
