Best New Compound Bows for 2015
July 29, 2015
I once interviewed a lucky bowhunter who had just arrowed the state-record whitetail buck. I don't remember all the details of the hunt, but I do remember the hunter killed the deer with a compound bow that was more than 20 years old. It was a classic, if not outright antique!
When I expressed my surprise at the age of his rig, the hunter told me there was nothing wrong with the bow so he saw no need for an upgrade. There was no denying his old bow could get the job done. But by the same logic, I could argue a 1985 Plymouth Reliant K would get me to work just fine, though I'm not sure how many days in a row and whether it's what I'd want my co-workers to see as I roll into the parking lot.
Embracing modern bow technology will make you a better bowhunter, whether you are just getting started in the sport or about to set a new state record. I put together these high-performance hunting rigs that I know are worthy of your consideration.
