Archery season over? Heck no- it's just starting. :) 3-D season is here and that is the best way for hunters to stay on top of their physical shape and ready for the next season. :)

With that being said, I will keep my BowTech Destroyer 350 with my QAD rest, Carbon Express Maximas and Grim Reapers for hunting (as of right now). I'm going to add a BowTech Specialist to my stable of bows as well as a BowTech Heartbreaker. You can't ever have too many bows. :) I'm going to keep my Sword Acu Site pin sight for hunting and my CBE with Sword scope for 3-D and my Trophy Taker Spring Steel. I am going to try the new Carbon Express CXL Pro shafts.

@ZLong19- the Easton Lightspeeds are awesome arrows! If I ever left Carbon Express, that's where I'd go for sure. They are great all around arrows.

I had a complete Bow make over this past October with the purchase of my New Breed Archery Nemesis Bow..
The only thing I will be adding is a nice Bow case...
Any recommendations on a awesome Bow case?

Looking to upgrade my release...likely something from Carter!  Shot my dad's a bit this past summer and really liked it.

If you like wrist releases, Carter makes one called the Quickie that is awesome. You might want to check it out. Those are really good folks!

Gonna add a Peep Eliminator.   Found myself in some awkward positions trying to get shots this year and I think it will help.

I had my upgrades done beginning of last year, so I feel pretty good about them still. Bow functions great. My intent... I need to practice more!  %^$^

I don't plan on changing anything at all.  My Drenalin is still rocking strong.  I'm affraid to change anything.  It's all tuned perfectly and I can actually shoot it well.  It's probably getting about time for a new string but that would be all I change.

The only thing I plan to do is get into 3D shooting.  I met some fellow hunters this year that have their own private 3d range not far from where I live.  They invited me to come out and shoot anytime.  I won't abuse the invitation though.  It sounds like they have a lot of money and time put into their range.  I'm thinking I'll donate a 3D target or two to their range to show them I'm not a free loader.  Hopefully that will do and I'll have a cool place for me and my son to practice.

Well I am upgrading my entire setup.  I shot a bunch of bows this fall and then shot the Matrix Plus.  WOW.  I have one on order and should have it early next week.  The Element is pretty great too but I wanted the longer ATA.  There are a lot of great bows but that Carbon riser is just an amazing leap forward.  I will be fitting it with the QAD Ultra rest, Spot-Hogg Hogg-It sight, Hoyt quiver and will be looking at stabilizers once it is in.

Aside for the bow upgrade I also just purchased a Little Jon String Jig and will be building all my own strings from here on out.  Just getting started with that now but it should be a lot of fun.

If you have the room your own range is a great idea. My buddy and I went halves on about 10 targets from R and W targets about 10 years ago, look them up on line, Russell is a great guy, great prices.  3D is quickly addicting so be prepared. We got into before we had kids and we were traveling every weekend to shoot a new course, met great people and improved tremendously. My son is 5 and he loves our range, so do my friends, spread out over the 6 wooded acres I have. About 15 targets, 2 shots at each, 2 ladder stands, well worth the money. Have fun!!
