Hello! Well, it's been 10+ years since I last bowhunted. More to the point, it's been almost 30 years since I bought a bow and associated gear. Only bow I ever owned was a PSE with two wheels bought in 1991. But, I've decided to get back into it and I'm starting from scratch. I feel comfortable about the hunting part, the gear part is what intimidates me. Things have come a long way and I don't know what are the game-changers versus just a gimmick. I figured the best thing to do was join a forum like this and start lurking for knowledge. Honestly, the complexity of gear, of having to juggle all these different parts to be 'in tune', was a major factor in me getting out of the sport in the first place. So, we'll see where this goes. While my main target to start with will be whitetail deer, I want to buy and use gear that will seamlessly transition to elk. It is kinda exciting to be 'new' at all this again.
