I have been fortunate to have discovered the rewarding experience of archery hunting. I have bow hunted in Australia, many of the States within America and Namibia Africa. I have taken some great game like deer, bear, scrub bulls, warthogs just to name a few with my Mathews Heli-m bow.
Finding the best bow that suits you best is most important. Your draw length, left or right hand, the type of sight, the release, the different arrows, the broad-heads fixed or mechanical, the distance your comfortable shooting, joining a bow club, finding an outlet that can tune your bow and they really know what they are doing is also key vital ingredient.
Every time I turn my head there is a new bow been released. Is that a good thing I ask myself well there are subtle changes. But sometimes new is not required when your current bow does all you need or more. I have a Mathews Reezn as my back up bow. The biggest difference between the Heli-m and the Reezen is weight. The weight of the bow when your carting it around a mountain makes a big difference and is worth the upgrade i feel, after totting both around the Colorado Rockies at 10000 feet.
Tree stand hunting in Australia is slowly gaining momentum and is worth investigating. I have had great results hunting deer and bear in the USA.
