Parker Wildfire vs PSE Stinger

So I'm lookin to buy my first bow... I think I've narrowed it down to these two based on what is available at the local archery place and price range. Wanted to see if anybody had an opinion one way or another on these bows

thanks

Those are both good bows with great companys that will back their products. Now it's just up to you to decide wich bow shoots the best for have them put a rest and sights on both of them and shoot till you decide wich one.

I'm guessing that you will go with the Stinger based on a head-to-head test. My two cents' worth. Let us know what you decide after shooting both of them.

Pse really stands behind there product, I gave my old pse to a kid when his bow broke on opening weekend 2 years ago and he didn't have money to get a new one. Well he was still shooting it last year when the metal teardrop broke on the string wich cause the top limb to blow up he took it to the bow shop and the called pse for parts and they asked what happened and sent him new both upper and lower limbs, cables and strings free of charge and this was a bow I bought back in 1992.

Just my .02

I own the Stinger and I love it. I got it last year and have have put 100's of arrows down range. The short axle to axle length makes it maneuverable in the stand and I think it's quiet. For the price I don't think you can go wrong.

I am a Parker man! I have a Hunter Mag as do my 2 brothers and our dad and my brother in law just bought the Wildfire! And he loves it! I've had mine for 5 years without any issues at all! I just believe they are the best bows for your buck!

well i ended up going with the Parker... due to it being the one in the store at the time. Plus I got the whole package for significantly less than MSRP, even after I got 6 beman hunter elite arrows

now all i have to do is learn how to shoot it straight, then how to hunt deer with a bow rather than a gun! smile

I hope you got a block target so that you can get some practice in before you hit the stand or blind. Glad that you got the bow--even if it wasn't a PSE! grin

my buddy has two block targets, put a bunch of shot thru it last night. still getting the peep and the sight tuned, and my groups aren't that great yet. but i tell you what, after shooting traditional growing up, "bad groups" at 20 yards with a compound sure look pretty good to me smile

      Kudos for doing this. I'm sure a lot of fishermen would not have.

      I know it has been raining all week but anyone have any walleye reports?  Heading up for the holiday weekend and want to do some fishing.

      Partyonpine, Would you be willing to share in what areas you were getting some nice Bluegills?  I am on the east end on big bay and would like to find some good panfish.

      Opener and the week after were good.  Not the numbers we normally get but better quality in the East End.  Not surprised on the weights for the Auto City a.  Usually for us we only catch a few slot fish but we averaged 3 a day for 10 days.  2 overs, biggest 27 inches.     Our best luck was 12-16 feet for quality.  When we went deeper we caught more but smaller.  Bass were really starting to heat up.  For me little earlier than normal.  Found some nice Bluegills the day we went after some panfish.  Dock fishing was as many as we wanted per usual.

      We will be up on June 8th for the week. It will be our 13th year in a row staying on the lake.  I hope the walleye are hitting the bobbers by the time that we get there.

      Those are some fine specimens. Great job

      I'm quite shocked to hear that a walleye tournament is still doing a live weigh in.  Virtually every event these days around here is doing a catch, photo, and release format.   Regardless, nice work.  Congrats.

      On the south end...   A great week of fishing with walleyes and saugers caught in good numbers.   The go-to presentation, again, was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 17 - 21' of water.  Various schools of walleyes and saugers across the south shore.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well again.   Some big pike and jumbo perch being caught by walleye anglers. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers normally head to the lake.  12 - 15' of water is holding some nice fish.   Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River is closed until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes being caught along with a mixed bag.  12 - 25 feet of water.  Points, neck down areas and bays with warming water were holding good fish this week.    The go-to presentation was a jig and minnow as on the south shore.  A mixed bag as is common around the Angle.

      Nice work!   Here's two words you hardly ever hear anyone say anymore.  "grateful and humbled"

      RLG, thanks for the shout-out!     Jeff and I are still trying to wrap our heads around what happened this past weekend.  We are humbled and full of gratitude  for having won 'The Classic' for a second time.     We practiced through all the rain on Thurs and the wind on Friday and found six different spots holding big fish.  Fishing was good on both days with several 'overs' in our catch...but would it hold up for another day?   We didn't know.     On tourney day, we made a long run to our first spot where I lucked out on a 26.5"er on my second cast.  Jeff followed up with a thick 27" er a few minutes later, which turned out to be the big fish for the event at 7.26lbs.  We finished out our limit and weighed-in at 10:30 am for the welfare of the fish in our livewell.    There were some big weights in this event which would have won in most other years, but - for whatever reason - this was our day.  Everything just went our way.  Again, we are just super grateful and humbled by this success.  We also want to congratulate all the other anglers who did well and give a big 'thank you' to the tournament organizers who put on such a great event!
