    Hello everyone this is my first post! This will be my first season shooting a compound compound bow. It’s an old Hoyt fastflite that was given to me.

    I'm new to bow hunting. When I bought my new bow in December, it came with free lessons. The instructor is teaching me back tension shooting. I'm not sure if this is the way I should be learning. I've heard back tension is more for target shooting, not hunting. Any thoughts out there?

    I'll call myself new to this scene, but it's only because I haven't shot in 15 years. Just bought good bow, a Hoyt Trykon, which is a huge upgrade from my old Bear youth bow. It's still a bare bow, so I'm trying to figure out which items are best to put on it. I'm going to hunt and do 3D...

    I am pretty new to bow hunting. I just picked up an old Lightning Flite. Tryin to find out if it is worth a damn.
