Archery on the Farm // New Compound Bows

Steve and I took up archery this year... so obviously we had to buy our own bows... of course! :)

Steve found his Bear "Game Over" actually through eBay... brand new with the tags on it still while we were taking our archery class and I bought a new Win & Win recurve around the same time.

Steve was interested in shooting in the 3D shoots that happen at a lot of the local clubs... so he looked around on craigslist for used bows and came across a used PSE Nova that would work for me.  I was hesitant at shooting a compound bow and didn't think I would like it that much, but I'm starting to use it more than my recurve! :)  I think the compound bow I tried in our archery class was probably a bit too high poundage for me and it was scary to shoot... but this PSE Nova is my draw length and a nice lower poundage (40#) so I'm not having any "scare" issues!  We've been out at my inlaw's farm a lot lately practicing, and I had my camera along so why not post some photos? :)
