So I just got an email from the good folks at Bob Lee that they put my Blackhawk with newly fitted CobraCurve limbs back in the mail to me. Bow will be 60" and 48#. Looking forward to shooting it early next week.
So then I looked at the bow rack during lunch and realized all the pegs were taken. In order to free up space for the Bob Lee recurve, I needed to move one. As I was checking out the bows I haven't shot in quite awhile, me eyes fell on the Back Widow PSAX (62", 46#) that I had unsuccessfully posted in the Classifieds for some time. Got to wondering how it had become a "Rack Queen" pretty much since I successfully hunted with it back in January 2019. Before breaking it down to store in a bow case, I took it out to the driveway for a dozen shots or so. As it always has, the bow performed exceptionally well with wood arrows. So well in fact that I have to replace some nocks this evening. Even shot a pair of broadheads and both found their mark at my typical hunting distance (17-18 yards).
So I got to wondering. How did such a nice bow that I shoot so well become a rack queen? There's no obvious answer. Sometime stuff just happens. And then I got to thinking, is it me or is this a common problem among guys who have multiple bows? I can probably understand a 3-bow rotation (hunting, 3D, indoor target) where the requirements of "the game" lead you to shooting different bows optimzed to the particular situation. And maybe you can justify a couple different styles of hunting bows (ASL, hybrid, recurve) if you're really fickle, but after that, as my wife reminds me, you're really just a hoarder. I try to tell her I am a "collector" but she doesn't buy it.
Okay, so if you're still with me at this point, the question on the table is - What is your favorite "Rack Queen" and why don't you shoot it or sell it?
