PSE EVO XF 33 S2 / Bowtech Revolt X80
The rise in popularity of bowhunting and the chase for big antlers is two fold. While more people are definitely hitting the woods it appears the quality of game being killed is of an older class animal. Nobody wants to post a pic of the "if its brown its down " spike buck they killed so more of them are living past 1 to 2 yrs old. This has been my observation anyways. Last year i saw more folks bowhunting southern Michigan than i personally have, this yr i saw more than last. Michigan is already known for not having the best age structure however this yr was a personal best for me in terms of seeing shooter bucks while having one close to boone and Crockett and another well into the 150s on cam, the biggest ive had prior mightve made 130. So while we have more educated hunters afield they are also being a little more picky than the use to. Or so it at least seems. And if that is the case i think its the best we can hope for given the circumstances.
