    Hi,
    I just wanted to introduce myself to all you guys on the forum. I'm Sam a longtime lurker from the woods of new Hampshire who would like to share a bow. I was kinda leaning towards the archery and hunting and just wanted to ask your opinion on each of the bows and the 09 Z if you have shot it. I plan on primarily using it for deer hunting and spots. I'm interested in anything hunting/bow hunting/archery/outdoors and hopefully glean some info from the more experienced.

    Thanks
    Sam

    Sam, welcome. I'm in MA, so another New Englander joins.

    Did you want to post pictures of a particular bow? Or a link to a site that features it? I warn you, I am not a hunter (though venison is so good, maybe I should hunt one day Smile ), but do build the things, and they are addictive and a lot of fun.
