    Yeah, I had some learning experiences last fall. I waited too long in all three examples I listed.

    That boar was the worst screw up of the three; he came from behind me and to the left of my ladder. I had about a five second window where he definitely couldn't have seen me draw and I blew it.

    If I'm gonna screw it up, I can assure you that I'll screw it up on the shot. :sad:

    Regardless, whether you use a compound, a compound with a drawlock or a crossbow, you get only one shot. Success that is the result of proficiency, competence, and ethics determines the difference between a "hunter" and "shooter". Either bow at 350 fps gives a whitetail at 30 yards 1/4 sec to make you miss the vitals. It only needs about 1/6 sec. It makes little difference which device is used to accelerate the projectile, it will be three times as long before impact as the arrival of the sound. Be a hunter.

    in my opinion you should go for what makes you comfortable, people always talk but you should know what is good for you and not what looks good in your hand.

    It all depends on what you like, go to a bow shop and if they allow you to use, try some and see what you like the most.
