Do yourself a favor. Save up the $ and buy a Mathews. Best bow I ever shot.

matthews makes the Mission bow, it runs from $300 to $400 dollars, check it out. Also, if you aren't new to bowhunting, shoot some bows, and don't be afraid to check out ebay, you can often find a good lightly used bow for 1/2 the price of retail if it includes all the right equipment. Shoot many bows, you won't be disappointed if you spend a little more and get a bow that you know you'll love.

Walleyeking- If your not new to bow hunting and are familiar with your draw length and such... withyour budget, I would look used.

Many times guys buy the brand new bows as they come out every year and roll their 1 or 2 year old bows for about what you are looking to spend.

Agreed, check out several pro-shops for used bows. They can make sure the draw length and weight are perfect for you.

For the price of a mathews you can buy two or three good bows.. leave one in the truck.. one in the cabin ..one at home.. and you will always have a bow handy. Don't get cought up in a name, thers a lot of great shooting bows in the $300-400 range. Bear makes a nice bow for the money.

You can buy a heck of a good Mathews for the price range of $300.00-$400.00. Used bows or bows a couple years old and in great condition can be had at a fair price. Look around and you will find any top brand bow for a reasonable price.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
