Default How old is your primary BOW

Just curious if there are more hunters out there that buy a new bow every couple years or still shoot one they've had a while.

I still hunt with 2012 Z7E but I also have a 2015 Hoyt that I'll use for the first time this year.

I have that problem too I can always justify a new gun even though I have plenty that "shoot good" but never another bow

I can't afford to upgrade bows every few years. There two expensive for me to be doing that. I love buying them but dang, they are just two expensive for that.

I like to change bows just because I like to try different bows. I seldom buy brand new though. The last compound I had was a 2016 Elite Synergy I bought used in 2016. I usually only keep a bow one season, maybe 2, and then I sell it and buy a different bow. I do have a 1971 Bear Kodiak I shoot still. But I haven't hunted with it in a long time. The last new bow I bought was a 2014 Bowtech RPM360. I sold it in 2015 and bought a used 2014 Hoyt Faktor 30. Then I sold it and bought the Elite in 2016.
