Hey BOW GUYS!, I'm sorta new to this Bow Hunting.
I have always used a rifle. But I just have shot targets with a bow.

So here's the story. I'm sitting on the couch today and my dad shows up with a case ( I'm 30yo) he is almost always surprising me with something still.

I can't find a SN and would like to get tips etc... About hunting or shooting it.

I have already nailed my targets at 15-20-30 no problem its like a natural act. For me.

This is the bow, also I have no idea what grain the arrows and the BH that is with it.

I'm super excited to get a deer with this PSE DRIVE banana loser8

Congrats.

A local shop should help you get it set up and identify what you actually have.

For bowhunting practice how you'll hunt.... Out of a ground blind, stand etc...

Those broad heads kinda look like Muzzys but with the cutting edge installed backwards?

I would first find out what the draw length and draw weight is. Then, find the chart that shows what size arrow you need. Go buy a half dozen and have cut to fit the draw length.

Those aren't Muzzy's. They are some kind of mechanical BH's.

Go kill something! If you have somewhere to hunt, you got it made! All I've taken is a poor lil bird seed theiving lil squirrel. The varmint tip went in and lodged itself. He got stuck in the bushes in my back yard. I went to retrieve him and he growled at me. I had to finish him with the side of my shed. Lol.

Anyways, go to a range, go outside, go to your land and shoot that sucker. You're already shooting good at 20 so go practice for a little farther

Went and had the bow checked.
Its set at 60.15# 29draw


I'm hunting in a natural ground blind I built with old fallen down trees etc...

I'll get a better pic of the BHs for y'all to see.
Like I said I'm new to bow hunting and falls help/tips are awesome

Thanks

Do not carry broadheads on arrows in case! Take them off or put field points on but REMOVE B/H's! One could bounce out and cut string on bow and you have a problem then. Nice setup you have there.

BOBO --- yes Its already set in lol


i have been flinging arrows at 10-15-20 today I decided to back down on the YRDS I was at yesterday till I'm more comfortable. I don't have a target block nor yard deer so I'm using the corn sack with target and two old pillows .lol

I ran a tape and flagged 10-15-20 off ..

I'm on a tight budget so working with what I got
