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.

take a run to victoria to cabin fever, they have a good selection of bows/range/accessories and a ton of knowledge!

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.

      What a novel concept!  Talking fishing on a fishing forum to increase interest and activity.  You may be right, it could work!

      So let me see if I understand this? You guys on the last page or so are going to "Lets Save This Forum" by high jacking the thread and talking fishing now!     Dam that could just work? Carry-on!   Good Luck.

      I have been looking at the gages this morning and the L.F. still appears to be either frozen or have an ice jam at the most downstream gage in Little Fork. The discharge is not working but the water level has risen 3' since Sunday. The next upstream gage however is flowing good and has risen from 1,200cfs to 5,000+cfs since Sunday and has risen 8' in the same period. The Big Fork doesn't have cfs data so I am thinking its frozen but the height has risen 2.5' since Sunday. I would think with that flow and the warm weather it's only a matter of days until they both go.   Other trips like the Black River and Rapid River are all on the rise both cfs and height.   Also, I took a look at the Rainy at Manitou Rapids and it has risen about 2' and has gone from 14,000 cfs to 17,500 cfs since Sunday.

       I'm heading up Friday. Going out of spring steele. I have a delivery route that took me up there today.  Took lunch at the warroad access. They got it closed with yellow tape.  If anyone heads up earlier an update would be great.  I'm planning on an atv but will walk if I have to.  Thanks.  Good luck and tight lines!!!
