I still use a 1987 Browning Magnum Plus. She may be slow (220's) but she hits hard! TNDeerGuy's got a blob on a hand truck, was getting a new sight dialed in. Hit the cross member and dented it but good!

Bear whitetail 2

Never killed squat with it. \:D

It was probably a 70's bow though.

My first was an old Indian bow around 1979. They sure have changed a lot.

I got one for yall.

My grandfather has an old Browning from the early 80's with what he still calls a "top of the line range finding sight" on it. It has a lever that you put your pointer finger through by the grip and by moving you finger towards or away from the riser the pin goes up or down. There is a bar above the pin. He says you put the pin on the bottom of the belly and the bar at the top of the back when you aim, that in turn puts the pin in the right spot. Then remove your finger and put the pin on kill zone and let 'er eat. He said it's good to an astonishing 35 yards. \:\)
I used to be indecisive. Now I'm not sure.

You're never to old to learn something stupid.
