Hoyt Havoc Tec is my primary but I have fallen in LOVE with my Bear Montana. I had hoped to hunt with it this year but I just didn't dedicate enough rangetime and didn't feel comfortable enough with it this season to hunt with it.

Next year though...

I really must be weak! I shoot a 45# Bear Grizzly recurve with cedar shafts, feathers, and 3 blade Zwickey. Have killed deer, bear, and an elk with this. I've never needed over 45 # and super duper broadheads to kill anything. I've had a lot of shoulder surgerys so I can't hold up more than 3 lbs of bow for any time at all, so recurves work for me. 30 yards and under it's dead, I just got to get closer with the stick bow!

I call her "Harvester" and the ole man of the mountain "Ole Salty"

Mathews Switchback 70# 28.5" 60% let-off
Mathews MQ1 70# 28.5" 60% let-off (for the mountains)
Vital Bow Gear drop away arrowrest
Cobra Sidewinder sight
Kwikee 3 arrow quiver
Katquiver IV (for the mountains)
Easton ACC 3-49 26" 4" Bohning vane 100gr G5 Montec
Easton ACC 3-71 26" 4" Bohning vane 125gr Steelforce w/out bleeder(for big game)

I don't use a stabilizer on either of my bows as they don't need them. Ole Salty is the most accurate bow I've ever shot, Harvester is the smoothest. I like Ole Salty for the mountains because he is lighter and at the end of the day you can really feel the difference even if it is only a pound or so. Harvester is just that...she get's it done!

Perhaps after a trip to Manitoba I will change her name to "International Harvester"
