Re: Help setting up a new Hoyt Carbon Element or Matrix (arrows, sights, rest, broadh
Thanks for the feedback guys. While the 100 yards + will be reserved for targets, I still like to have a setup capable of such tasks. You never know when you might see a coyote or need a follow up shot on a wounded animal. Plus its fun to try and out shoot your buddies at the ranch. As far as animals, every since my first wounded doe at 33 yards when I began, I will not take a shot I'm not confident in at big game. Varmints are another story. I have since not missed a big game animal (knock on wood), but have passed animals on many occasions inside the 60 yard range even when not feeling comfortable. My last half a dozen kills were (black bear 41, elk 35, elk 78, whitetail 08, bobcat 72 & hog 45). With today's bows, the energy is not the problem. I do not recommend that anyone, myself included, should take any shot unless you feel 100% confident in making, nor taking one at longer ranges unless the animal is perfectly still, feeding and or completely unaware of your presence (again, with the exception to varmints such as quail, turkey or deer killers).
Has anyone tried the new Hoyt dropaway rests? I forget the exact name of them.
Also, are there any 7-10 pin sights out there with greater than a 2" gap from top to bottom pin, other than the trophy taker 10 pin?
