I've been watching and posting some over on BHT for about 7 months, and have enjoyed the "relationships" there. I've heard about this board from some there and thought I'd check it out. I'm a 14 year KY resident after growing up mostly in IN. I'm pretty well ate up with everything to do w/ bowhunting. I do start transitioning somewhat to the ducks around Thanksgiving though. I'd shot 1st generation compounds instinctively for 20 or so years, really not appreciating how far modern gear had come. Shot a buddy's PSE a couple years ago. He's about my identical twin and the bow worked for me instantly...wow! I went out and bought a Mathews LX immediately. Since then, I've also bought a SB and a SB XT...love 'em all. Needless to say, I'm enjoying my own little archery renaissance. I'm also shopping a custom longbow now. I expect the wife to kick me to the curb any day now!
