I currently run a 50 lb omen as my primary hunting bow. It's shooting 435 grains at 280 which is about perfect.







Picked up this expedite nxt on trade for a hoyt I didn't shoot well. Maxed it out and sent a few arrows through it. This thing COOKS!

your scale shows 422 not 435
you are talking about 2 different bows, which one is "this"?

All I can say for a 50 lb bow, even at 30" draw, that is super fast. And I been doing this a long time and tested a lot of stuff at 50lbs and that.....is fast for that weight. I have thought about trying one myself. I know the basic design for speed is there for these bows. Both the Expedite and the Omen.

You shouldn't run with your bow
You clearly haven’t trained your bows well… my bow runs ahead of me and stops in the perfect spot every time… don’t have to carry it, and it plans the best stalk, I just meet it at the killing tree, or bush, or whatever landmark it chooses, which is always better than the one I would choose

My bow is never in a case unless I'm traveling to hunt somewhere out of state.

I don’t even have a bow case… I used to but never used it. A little bit of moisture and a bow case becomes a bigger issue, it’s rarely dry enough to use one around here even if I wanted to.
I do agree though, if I was making a really long trip or flying, I’d get a case and use it for those rare occasions… as it is, my bow goes on a lot of 6-8hr drives In it’s birthday suit

I agree a bow case and moisture can make a mess but here you can not transport a bow without it in a case and has to be zipped up. Unless MI law has changed I'd love to have it out of case to hang on back of seat to dry on way home.

Sarcasm key on........If you get them fast enough then everything else doesn't matter...........sarcasm key off. I know you probably understand that but it's worth mention.......

Big key word here, 'or'. Law just states it needs to be 'unloaded' which is pretty much always unless you're shooting lol. Back seat counts as not readily accessible

Might want to read the mi DNR rules and hand book for you hunting info on bow, crossbows and guns. Or is different for the rules.

It's verbage and legalese. I moved here from AZ and really inquired local sheriff's about all the laws so I wasn't breaking any. A bow uncased in the backseat is considered not readily accessible in the eyes of the law because to be able to fire it is next to impossible. For a firearm and xbow I doubt it would fly in the cab unless in a case or locked. Granted, in legalese you're always running the risk of having to prove your side in court so DO NOT USE MY ADVICE AS LEGAL ADVICE. I did my own research for myself in my local area.

Forgot to put my research is specifically under the guise I'll NEVER have an occupant in my back seat.

So are you guy's saying I can't have my bow in the passenger seat with a arrow nocked and my release on the string ,while driving down the back roads on a snowy day, with the heater on high, to dry it out?
Congratulations on the bow great speeds, hopefully it is perfect for you.
