Favorite Hunting Bows of 2019

“Best Bows” lists are usually sponsor driven click bait where publications regurgitate talking po Favorite Hunting Bows of 2019 “Best Bows” lists are usually sponsor driven click bait where publications regurgitate talking points you could have just as easily read directly from the manufacturer’s site. Its 2019, every flagship bow from major manufacturers is a quality product. Debating which one is “best” is completely subjective and has more to do with the preferences and application of the end user and the accessories they use, than it does with the overall quality of the bows themselves.

Our favorite Hunting Bows of 2018

Whenever a new bow is released the media immediately swoons over it like a bachelorette contestant doting after Mr. McDreamy.

But now that we are more than halfway through 2018 these bows have had ample time to earn their reputations. We figured now would be a good time to do an honest write up of our favorite bows that launched earlier this year. #3 The Prime Logic IBO Speed: 330 FPS Brace Height: 7” Axle...
