First Time Shooting Compound Bow
« on: February 28, 2015, 11:31:50 AM »
I finally shot a (Matthews Genesis) Bow.

The Archery Dude had to make several adjustments before I started feeling comfortable.
Down to 50 from I think 60 +, I was able to get on paper after some tweaking with technique.
It was a blast shooting and already with a Mission Dagger X-bow this past year, this could flavor my outdoors obsession further!

I'm possibly going to add to my hunting equipment a Matthews Craze as I could eventually teach my nearly 4 year old daughter to shoot.  It has enough range to allow me to use it as well.                             %^$^

Uh oh!  Foss is catching the bug!

Nothing against the genesis, but you wouldn't know what to do with yourself if you were to shoot one of their top end bows all tuned and adjusted to fit you.  It's a sweet thing.  It will make you think your ready for competition! Lol

Yes, the bug has completely metastasized throughout my system!
My fever was just starting to level out....

As much as I prefer to purchase an upper model, this Craze is a bow
I can pass down to my children.  Then I can upgrade to my own Blaze
