That Quinn is a nice bow. What do you shoot out of it? Carbons, aluminums, or woodies?


Woods Walker, I shoot carbon. Beaman MFX Classics 500's (small dia.). It also shoots Gold Tip Traditional 35/55 carbons I buy from Big Jim's Archery just as good.. They are blemished arrows...little finish blurr or something. He has them for about $42.00 doz. when he can get them. They don't last long in his shop.


$42.00!!! WOW! I guess they don't last long at that price!!!!

My primary bow is a barnett demon crossbow, but when I shoot a bow it is a Indian Stalker compound 45-55 with a custom cable/string. light weight, short easy brush bow, same one I first hunted with. I use easten gamegetters with silver strike mechanicals, shooting glove/fingers and no sights. no stabilizer. I have taken rabbits on the run with it. I also use a slingshot for rabbits or squirrels. (don't want to spook the deer going in) ;)
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.

For many years a shot a Martin Warthog, but the last 5 yrs or so I switched to a Horton Legend II crossbow. I still enjoy shooting the Martin, but hunt with the Horton.

The question is what kind of "Bow" do you use but I see some odd answers :roll:

I use a homemade longbow with homemade broadheads and homemade arrows with feathers from turkey's I harvest. Its a 62 inch reflex defelx design which pulls 50 pounds at 29 inches.

I also use a bowtech compound some days.

Why do you always have to get your little anti-crossbow jab in there retch? Is that what the "odd answers" refer to. You are so predictable. Yawn...
