My Black Widow PCH.

And I'm sure I'll hunt some with my new longbow from Randy as well. Then in December I'll have a Black River longbow that's a passaround bow from Tradgang that I'll hunt some with too.

I'm planning to start with the Silvertip 47lb 60" bow. If it is windy I will use the Tall Tines 52lb for a little more zing on the arrow.

One of these 3 on any given day. I shoot the same arrows out of all 3 and they are all within a couple lbs of each other. Most likely the 3 piece because it's the one I've been shooting the most lately.

This is mine hopefully, new to me Blueridge SR, just received it on Monday and my 3 rivers order should be here tomorrow so I can start putting some arrows together. I probably shouldn't switch this close to season but I'm still shooting my East Texas Stalker as well so I have a back up plan. Just wanted to try a 3pc.

It will be my newest Sarrels Blueridge for me!





It's 50# @ my 29" DL, and smooth as silk!

For arrows I'll be using my .400 FMJ's with 250gr up front. I'm starting this season with 150gr Wasp Traditional broadheads. They weigh in at 563gr and are about 19%FOC.

Good luck to everyone this weekend!

The bezels are hand engraved brass. I don't remember the guys name right now, and my computer (where his contact info is) is in a box in a storage room right now till we finish the house. They are very nice, and really set a bow off!!!!!

The bolts are black chrome, and come with the bezels.
