high country bows

4 posts in this topic

I am about as rookie as you can be to bow hunting, and my uncle just gave me a high country he used to use. I don't think it's been used very much and I'm not sure how old it is, but it seems like a nice bow.

Anybody have any experience with them? Also some bare minimum tune-ups or anything I should have checked out? I like to spend my fall in the duck or goose blind besides rifle season, but I'm thinking pretty seriously about trying some bow hunting next fall. I figure with so many other bad habits, what's one more?? smirk.gif

Back in the day they were one of the better bows out there. As far as what needs to be checked I would start by checking the string and cables. If it is a older bow you should put a new string on it. Bring it to one of pro-shops and have it checked out. Make sure that the draw length is the correct length for you also.

I agree take to pro shop, and then practice as much as possible before going out next fall!

I shoot a HCA Carbon 4 Runner and love it. The main reason I bought it was the weight. It weighs less then 3 lbs and it has a small axle to axle. It is a fast and accurate bow. They had some Customer Service Issues a few years back but they have supposedly fixed them and are working to get back in the market more. When ever I decide to get a new bow it will be ht first one I look at.

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
