"Easy" venison
« on: November 07, 2008, 12:35:00 PM »


Fat young doe, Oct. 25, Southwestern Missouri. First deer with "Easy", Dean Torges Osage and hickory longbow, 64", 57# @ 27". Superceder arrows, 160g. Snuffers, total weight 620 g.

Good eating for sure! 10 yard shot, she barely made it out of sight.

Very Nice!  Congrats.

You might have just described a perfect hunt.  Fat doe, 10 yards, short short trail at the end of Oct. so you aren't freezing or swattin' mosquitoes.

Don,
    Just curious, what spine Supercedar are you shooting to get good arrow flight off your Torges?
     Nice shot.It sure is a good feeling when they go down in seeing distance.

Craig, I'm pulling Easy to about 55# I think, and she bare-shafted with 60-65# shafts using 125g. field points on 28" shafts. My broadhead arrows with 160g. Snuffers are 65-70#. A little stiffer than I expected- it's a hard-shooting bow. I tried the broadheads on the 60-65# shafts, but it needed a little more spine. Finished arrow length is 28 1/4 bop.

I found that my draw length (to the back) is a little shorter with this handle type.
