I use a Hoyt compound that I bought off my uncle a couple years back. Its 10 years old or so but can still put the smackdown on a deer.
My pursuit of a buck of a lifetime is much like the Chicago Cubs pursuit of a World Series...the season ends with a "wait til next year"

I use an Elite Archery Z-28, 29 inch draw, 60 lbs. I use 400 grain Easton flatline arrows with 100 grain Rage heads with double blades.
I only hunt on days that end in ' Y '.

I got a Parker Hurricane crossbow in the Spring. My injured shoulder prevents me from shooting (or even drawing) any of my compounds, recurves, or longbow. The crossbow is more accurate at a greater distance than any of my old bows, but it still just takes a tiny limb to deflect the arrow off target, so it does share similarities with other string-launched projectiles.

I look forward to getting back into the woods during archery season, something I've been missing terribly since the wreck.

I am not him, but my father in law used them last season and was impressed.  Told me they pretty much open the deer right up... huge exit holes.

I shot either a JK Traditions R/D longbow or a mid70's Bear Kodiak Magnum my father in law gave me.  Both fling cedar shafts with either 3 blade Woodsmans or Snuffers.

Happy hunting everyone!
Aim for the center of the target... the center of an aspirin is the same size as the center of a basketball. The difference is mental.
