I am getting back into hunting full swing, so i ordered a new bow. I am a nut for the short compact stuff and I have always owned the shortest bows available in the past...even recurves. Not always with the best results though. When I saw this bow being used on one of the hunting channels, it caught my attention and though at the time I wasn't really hunting, i knew that this was right for me. I did not order the release gadget, just the bow. I should be able to shoot this one in a blind with no problem. Go ahead guys...let me have it!
