Hey guys last year was my first year bowhunting. I bought an old Martin Fury Bow off of Craigslist and it definitely wasnt the right size bow for me in terms of draw length...but I made it through the season, and actually killed two deer and one rabbit from the tree stand. Fun stuff. Really loved Bowhunting.

I sold the Martin Fury today on Craigslist and went over to Dicks to see what they had. I know I know, from what I've read on here I shouldnt buy from Dicks...but I really felt like any Bow would have been an upgrade from what I had last season. And actually, our Dicks here in town has a guy who is really knowledgable and experience with Bowhunting. He's been very informative in our past conversations.

So here is what I got tonight...I feel like its a great deal and so Im stoked, but would love any of your thoughts:

1) PSE Whitetail Madness Compound Bow w/ Quiver, Sight, Whisker (may not be the nicest, newest bow on the market...but will be so much nicer than the Fury for me at this point)
2) Case
3) 6 Gold Tip Arrows
4) 3 Pack of Muzzy 100g
5) Hat/Mesh Facemask
6) Bear Grylls Gerber Knife

Had a $100 off coupon so I got all this for $415

Thanks for reading guys and keep up the great info...I love this Forum.

Sounds like you made out all right, There is nothing wrong with that bow it will kill a deer just as dead as a carbon element or monster safari will. How do you like the knife, I was looking at them the other day and almost bought one.

That's not a bad deal at all. If the bow fits you and you like it, have fun hunting with it.

Sounds like you did good. Dicks has deals, got the mountain bike I use to hunt there, all our other bikes have come and gone but that 99 dollar bike is still going strong.

You got a good setup. A PSE whitetail madness is the same bow as a bowmadness, and they are a very good bow.

You'd be much better off with kabar or Gerber LMF 2 for not much more money.

Robin - You are probably correct. Im just a big Bear Grylls fan...haha...And plus my initials are BG so the fact that it has that on the handle is kinda fun too. I know..Im lame.

Sounds like a great package for the woods and not too much coin. Enjoy it.

Not at all lame. The heart wants what the heart wants.

I bought that same bow earlier this year at Dicks. It is NOT the same as a PSE Bow Madness. It is the same as a Brute LT. Just repackaged as a Dick's exclusive. I like mine....it's my first bow.
