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.

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
