A 22# Snake recurve bow. Not sure which arrows I will use yet (I have some aluminums and some wood arrows I need to finish up, field points and old Bear Razorheads), but I am hoping to take it with me in October to hunt squirrels, if I'm ready by then.
2009(?) Bowtech Commander, 60# limbs.
Copper John Dead Nuts Pro II sight w/extension for longer sight radius.
T. R.U. Ball four finger release.
Easton Axis Slim Tech carbon arrows (discontinued but I have maybe 18 left)
Mix of factory Easton and Lumenok nocks.
G5 100 grain Montec broadheads.
Total arrow weight 405-410 grains.
My previous bow was a rattle can painted Mathews target bow I shot for maybe 20 years before upgrading.
My crossbow is a Barnett hybrid of a Jackal stock and Predator limbs so Dick's could claim it as "exclusive".... Bought during a Black Friday sale with a $20 coupon and military discount it cost around $160. In addition to hunting our farm I hunted in a regulated deer removal program at Cornell U. We generally hunted in the 2 square mile area of the core of the campus. The deer were under a lot of hunting pressure so our permit allowed us to hunt at night and over bait, neither of which is normally legal in NY.
I tossed the Barnett scope added a few additional rails for any of my 3 Sniper Hog Lights and added a Vortex Strike Eagle 1-6x24 scope that cost a lot more than the crossbow. I have a mix of Easton Gold Tip and Carbon Express arrows. The bow shoots them all well. I took a lot of deer with that setup..... The last winter I hunted at Cornell I donated 12 deer in addition to the ones we kept for family and friends.
