Mathews Switchback XT
« on: 11 Sep 2012 - 08:52:21 »
Let me start by saying I have no knowledge of bows except for what I have read on the interwebs and heard guys talking about. But, the FIL is a hard core bow hunter and I was thinking Id like to give it a try. Bow hunters get a three month season here in MN and I think it will be more of a challenge to get a deer at 50 yards with a bow compared to 200 yards with a rifle.
I found this ( on craigslist and buddy tells me its a fair deal and has everything I need to take it out in the woods and start hunting.
Is this a good bow for me to get? I'm 6' 2" and in decent shape (if round is a shape).
Comments? Advice?

Don't know nothing about it, but you've yet again reminded me I need to get a decent bow. Time to do some research,...

Heard good things about them.  You'd spend a lot more getting that bow and the accessories. :thumbsup:

Need to call a bowyer that sells matthews and ask them matthews are good bows but with any bow it needs to be setup to fit you.
