    Dont know much about bows but i do respect bowhunters. I considered hunting with rifles cheating. Let alone setting traps and waiting for the animal with a high powered rifle. Only problem with bows is the chances of injuring the animal and them fleeing to die a slow agonizing death else were is greater. But i respect it more than rifle hunting. BTW i've never been hunting and never will, and i'm far from a tree hugger.

    Mathews is a really expensive line of bow (about $719). But they are outstanding. The "Outback" is the bow of choice from there. Not sure about overdraws because they are not used anymore with any type of bow. Hoyt has an incredible new bow for 2006 called the Trycon (or somehting along those line) Might want to try a Bow-Tech as well though I have heard they're having trouble with the limbs. Either way you go, bow hunting is a blast.
