Went to see Wayne at Big Game Archery,in my home town, to pic up my new bow today. Was getting antsy, waiting for a sight to be delivered, as I'm heading to Alberta for Mule deer on Monday. I was really sold on the 2012 PSE Dream Season EVO, and decided to get it and use my 2010 PSE Bowmadness as back up. Wayne did some fine tuning for me, and then it was off to the range. Sweet bow! It's a 60 pound bow, and I'm shooting it at 60 pounds, with a new Qad Ultra rest. I did not paper tune or walk back tune it. I just started adjusting my sights to 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 yards. No left and right adjustment needed. Nice Wayne! After shooting countless arrows... and getting tired, I decided to call it a day, and come back tomorrow, and double check everything. I noticed I had one Slick Trick Mag broad head in my odds and ends box, in my bow case. I decided to shoot it at a Tim Horton's coffee cup lid on the 50 yard broad head target. I nailed it! I mean...dead center! I retrieved the arrow, I had my own Cabela's target set up at 60 yards, and thought, what the heck. I fired the Slick Trick and bulls-eye! I shot a field point next...and bulls-eye as well. I shot one more filed point and well....it humbled me. :)

The best thing about this is no broad head tuning! I had Grim Reapers packed just in case, but looks like my Slick Tricks will be first on the bow again this year. Thanks Wayne! ;D

Thanks...picked up a bow last year, for the first time. Shot a deer with it, and now I'm hooked. Nice to harvest an animal....but the whole spot and stalk is a hoot. At 200 yards with a rifle the hunt is over. At 200 yards with a bow..the hunt is just beginning! :D

Nice bow & story.

I had a feeling you would be hooked after the first time you went and took your animal with a borrowed rifle

Now look at you!

Welcome to the brotherhood!!!!!

Best Regards,

the PSE Dream Season EVO is $850. That's the bare bow. Rest, sights, wrist sling....all extra.Pretty much top of the line, so I can say this will be the last bow I will buy. No need to upgrade.

Crossbows are not allowed in Alberta, unless a doctor signs off that you have a physical disability, and can't draw back a minimum 40 pounds. They are legal here in BC, but I hunt both provinces.

Nice bow & story.

Yes...after that moose trip, I bought my own rifle. Ever since I started shooting a bow, I haven't shot my rifle once. lol If I get another Limited Entry draw, I'll have to dust off my 30.06 and see if I can hit anything with it! :)

sweet man, hows the range?..

make some vids man

I've got it sighted in to 60 yards. Last year I shot a deer, at 30 yards, the arrow passed through the animal, and buried into the ground 13 yards beyond. The angle was slightly downhill. That's with my old bow, with a lot less speed! That's also the farthest shot I've taken on a spot and stalk hunt, Getting close is the most fun and biggest challenge of the hunt.
