Greetings! I'm a 29 year old hunter, living and hunting in Northern Sweden. I've been interested in bowhunting a while but just recently decided to get me a compound bow, and try to get my ass off on a hunting trip. Bowhunting is not legal in Sweden yet, although that might change soon. There are a few neighboring countires that allow bowhunting, but hunting in the US, and especially Alaska is at the top of my bucket list. I've been looking at a few bows online, reviews and videos. I know everyone says to shoot them all and decide later, but there aren't any bowshops around. There are two major bowshops in Sweden, both are over 600 miles away. I'm probably just gonna measure my draw length, then order a bow and hope for the best. Been looking for a long time on a Carbon Icon, mostly because it's a complete package, considering the lack of bowshops. And it has very nice reviews. Buuut... also looked at BT Mag X, Reign 7, SR6, Mathews Vertix, and Hoyt RX-3 Ultra... Hopefully, if it does become legal, a lot of the hunting shops here will star stocking up on bows and related equipment, but for now it's gonna be a bit of guesswork!
