Hoyt Carbon Spyder

Well…. that didn’t take long….

Hoyt has announced a replacement to their popular top of the line bow, the Carbon Element, and is replacing it with the Carbon Spyder.

Unfortunately, I won’t be able to write a review on this bow, as it is WAY out of my price range.  Bare bow, I have seen it listed at over $1600 USD.  If anyone else finds a better price, please us know.

Shooting 50 yards

Looks like my schedule at work is a little up in the air, so my days off are kinda screwy.

I had last Wednesday off, so my friend James and I decided to go to the range.  Once we got to the range, we shot off a few rounds of arrows.

Sighting In

I finally received my order from Bass Pro Shop of my new Trophy Ridge React Sight for my compound bow.  It only took them almost a week and a half.

I ordered it on a Sunday evening, okay, their warehouse isn’t open Sunday and Monday was Labour Day.  When Tuesday came, my order was still “Processing” and it was the same for most of Wednesday as well.  I finally got notification that it was “shipped” or actually in the words of the Bass Pro Shop website, “Completed”.

Broadheads – Carbon Express F-15 Dual Blade Broadhead

I remember when I first started archery. I wanted to hunt something.

A native friend of mine, Chris, was telling me all about broad head arrow tips.

He preferred a broad head with the blade that started at the tip, instead of a point.

So I jumped on the chance when I found these Carbon Express F-15 broad heads. Continue reading
