That's amazing and I'm glad you shared it with all of us. I look forward to stories of your TAC 15 hunts this fall.

Thanks .

But not realy. My friend that shot the re curve at over 80 pounds is still at it and he is 64.

I am a fairly large guy at 6'5'' and 290 pounds and still very active in all things that I like.

When I started bow hunting ,like everyone else I started with a Jennings Model T set on 60
pounds and worked up over the next 30+ years.

So If a person shoots a lot and continually adds a couple of pounds each season he will get
there if he wants to.

Like I said , With all of the improvments in archery equipment there is realy no need to
go to that high of a draw weight but when I started the Allen compound bow (The very first
compound to be built)had just came out.

So I grew up with the compound bows and saw many changes. My favorite bow still has
wheels (In lieu of cams) and has 30% break over.

Some of the old legends (Like Howard hill) could draw in excess of 125 pounds because they
shot long bows and re curves that exceeded 75 pounds at full draw and the compounds with
there 30+% break over was easy for them.

For Example: if you can hold a long bow at full draw that is 70 pounds then a compound with
30 % break over can be set at 100 pounds and still be managed because the hold weight will
be somewhere around 70 pounds.

Bow hunting was and still is my favorite sport and will be as long as I can draw a bow or
a breath.

As you can tell I love to talk archery.

That means at 6-0 and 190 that I am fairly small.

If you don't shoot all year round it can be hard on you.

If I laid off for a month or two I started by backing off 10 or 15 pounds and shooting that weight
until comfortable and then started adding weight until my pins were zeroed.(I never changed
them if I didn't have to).

The reason I bought the TAC 15 was an injury to my shoulder.I Didn't know if I could hunt with a
bow any more and the TAC 15 was the first crossbow that looked like it could do the job in my
opinion.

Now I'm back on the road and up to 83 pounds on my compound, but I still can't shoot more than
50 or 60 arrows at a time.

I am looking forward to trying out the TAC 15 on game and in the event that i cant fully recover
It will be my fall back bow.

I am going to try The TAC 15 out on hogs first And depending on how well it does try deer next.

You have a good one.
