I also equipped the new bow with an HHA adjustable site and honestly never looked back. Within two weeks of shooting the bow I felt confident up to 45 yards and my targets could prove it..
Once on site in the Rocky Mountains I again fired the bow into my target to make sure the jostleing ride up the mountain had not adjusted the sight for me. Again dead on up to 45 yards. What I found most beneficial over the next 3 days, other than the smoothness of the draw and the noticeable let off (up to 80% they say) at full draw, was the super lightweight and easy carrying of the bow up and down the mountains. At 8,500 feet above sea level every pound counts let me tell you. In fact my backpack was more of a burden at the end of the day then the bow in my right hand was.
At the end of the second day, when I finally had a cow in site at 35 yards, with just a small poplar tree between us, I was at full draw right when a second cow emerged on the trail about 20 yards back. I was able to hold at full draw for what seemed like 3 minutes before the wind switched and they were gone in an instant. It may have only been 90 seconds but I wasn’t to the point where I would not have been able to release with accuracy pending the sudden wind change at that point.
Overall I feel like this bow was made for me, right out of the box. I would not hesitate to recommend this work of art, high quality piece of equipment to anyone, from the novice archery hunter, to the most die hard bow hunter. If one can justify the price point is will be an investment that will last a lifetime!
