    I shot a friends older Bowtech a couple years ago on a camping trip. My first time shooting a compound.

    I was amazed at the use of a peep site and pins, as it felt like aiming a gun, which I shoot regularly.

    Anyway, wanted one for years and finally found a super clean Mathews HTR No Cam for a great price locally.

    Bought it and fell in love. Shot as much as possible (daily) for weeks. Got some instruction from a coach and kept improving.

    Then, one day I go outside, itching to shoot. I just got a new Bulldog target, Kid was being annoying, just wanted to get outside.

    Head out, aim at target, take a deep breath, take my shot, and the strangest noise ever happened… and my bowstring was slack.

    My heart sank as I didn’t hear an arrow hit the target.

    I dry fired my bow. Blew the mods up, not sure yet about the cams. It’s at the shop getting inspected.

    I was super bummed as I’ve really been enjoying the meditation of shooting and focusing on improving.

    I realized it would be at least a week before it was fixed. Then I realized that for the $300 I paid for this bow, it might not even be worth repairing and selling it if costs that much to fix.

    So I rationalized the purchase of a Mathews V3 in UA Forest All-Season because it’s my birthday soon.

    It’s amazing and I love it.

    I’m still super bummed about the no cam, and hopeful that only the mods are damaged, but we will see.

    Either way, I’ll keep a piece of it alive on the V3 with the Lost Camo quiver.

    Hard to tell from the pic, is it the 27 or 31? I’m going next weekend to get mine! I’m getting the green ambush color I think. But I’m torn between the two riser lengths. My last bow was the halon with 30″ ATA so I’m thinking about going with the 31″
