New (To Me) Quinn Bow

Friend had this here bow....etc., etc.

Well my friend has sold me his recurve take-down, and no I'm not going to tell how much I paid for it, just to say it was a fantastic price, and I couldn't pass it up. Took me a little while to remember who Quinn Archery was. When I remembered I got a little excited.

This is a Quinn Stallion, 55 lbs. and so far it is shooting very smooth. I test drove it a couple of days ago and took it home last night.

I've been hunting racoons at night at my house for years, and been using my Bear Montana since January. Well I tried the Quinn last night after just a few test shots at an old stump in my yard. I didn't make a kill yet but I did roll one purdy good. Hit him in the chest under his chin and did him a back flip. Not exactly where I was aiming (you know forehead) using my 2314 xx75's with the 100grn hammer head blunts.

Was kinda fun. I've killed a few using the same arrows on the Montana, with head shots and I've rolled a few too. The only complaint I've got is that after holding and shooting the Montana for these many months, coming to full draw on the Quinn and holding all of that weight up waiting on the coon to finally come into clear view is a little tiring. The Montana is a feather compared to the Quinn but they both shoot smooth.

I've got a Bear Kodiak Hunter (40lbs.) that I was using before I got my Montana and it was and is still a sweet shooter. The Quinn shoots just as good as eather one of the other bows its feals closer to my Hoyt ProTech in weight.

Will Try Again Tonight on the Coons

Well last night was a bust due to lack of time and a need for sleep so I could work today.

Will try the Mighty Quinn on the coons tonight and see if I can get a clean kill.

Will post any results.

The Quinn Shooting The Wand (So To Speak)

Did a little wand shooting last Saturday. Shooting the Wand, something that was supposedly done in Marry Old England in the deep past.





It shoots real good if I hold my tongue right.
