I was a recurve guy. My shoulders don't like for me to shoot anymore. I got rid of all my gear. Had an amazing Zipper custom made recurve for years that shot a lot of deer. It was a beautiful piece of art as well.

Thanks for posting the pics!

Meant to get back to this thread in that I am/was/debating and avid bowhunter, one who knows that it changed my life for the better. In any case, unable to today, I thought I'd post a url that might make a few of you drool a tad if you're not familiar with them (bit too fancy for my tastes, but still nice). You really have to look over the site, look at the inlays and carvings.

Great pics, so cool, don't those broadheads split the shaft on impact? Must be a trick to it.
