Curious! And also want advice on selling two bows other than here or ebay or Craigslist.

I have a pink and gray Bowtech Diamond. I don't get to shoot as often as I would like. You could see if a local archery store would buy them from you.

There's only 2 here. I haven't been able to get to one of them yet! I'm really depressed about this situation :( I had/have 4 bows. Darton ranger, camo. Concept c32-pink, then a late 1950's Kodiak cub and a 1976 kodiak hunter that I am keeping. The hunter is my baby! I already sold back my concept. The darton and cub need to go so I can get clothes and glasses. Those are more important than hunting now.
Do you have a pic of yours? I've never shot any bowtech's but I heard that thy are right up there with Hoyt

Sorry, no picture. My camera no longer works. Bow tech is pretty good, we have three. I can only shoot mine, even though I'm right handed I'm a left handed shooter.

So is my sister! She was trying to shoot mine and had a rough time with it. Some people just are better left handed shooting. Usually its because they have left eye dominance. Do you use sights?

I do use a sight. I tried shooting my husbands but........it was really bad. I kept hitting the target 3 lanes over. The place we were at was a family run shop the grandfather was helping me, his son was the first to suggest a left hand bow. The only one they had in stock was the pink and gray camo . They took $50 off the price for me because it had been in the rack for so long.

Diamonds are nice bows. You can let a compound sit for a decade and the only stability issue you would have is with the string and not the actual bow. That's another reason why compounds are popular despite their cost. Lots of bonuses with a compound. Even with my compounds I shoot instinctively and with fingers. It just feels so natural to me because I started out with a homemade recurve.
Recurves are now cheaper than compounds and harder to find in stores.. Sad.. It's an art form! Do you think you'll eventually try tourney shooting?

Awwwh :) it really is kind of fun. I wouldn't want to hunt bear.. Serves no great purpose. Deer just because it means food on the table. Sure if i get a huge one ill mount it, though. Bear is a bit much. I don't like trophy hunting. To each their own

He plans on meat and everything from it. Part of the reason he has to wait is because we don't have a deep freeze.

Gotcha. That's a little better. Hear too much about trophy hunts.
