Shoulder issues caused me to quit shooting for a while, but I’d like to start again. I turned 71 a couple months ago and have decided I will enjoy shooting as long as I can, whatever that happens to be.

I’d like to shoot a 30-35# Bear Montana, as soon as my classified issue gets cleared up, I’ll put a wanted ad on for one. Or, recommendations for where to get a new one.

I could use some arrow suggestions. I used to shoot mainly carbon, but am open to suggestions.

Any other helpful information about the Montana would be appreciated.

It feels good to be back on the “Wall”.

Thats great to get back to shooting. Personally I would just use aluminum arrows. More affordable and easy to use. You need to find a bow first before you worry about arrows. But for a idea, I use some 1618 Neos (gold colored budget shafts) with Nib points and 3" feathers for a 30# I have.

If you find an old bear polar they are near identical to Montana’s but much cooler, probably cheaper too.

For arrows , if you plan on hunting , (my opinion and personal hunting experience) I would use carbon as I have found they have the best penetration. With low poundage you want all you can get . If your interest is strictly archery targets.. what ever flys best . There are a lot of fellows on here that know arrows and can match the arrow to the bow you purchase .

I use carbon , wood , bamboo … they all work great and will do the job .

Good luck in healing up!

Good to see you back Pete ! I likely haven't much over anyone else on tuning and such, but I do pretty much shoot Montana's exclusively these days....Feel free to drop me a pm "anytime" ! I can only return pm's as I have pm issues. More than Happy to share what little I do know ;)

Best with your quest my friend...

If you are on facebook go to Traditional Bowhunter Classified, Buy, Sell or trade. There was a 35# Montana on there the other day.

Carbons can be bought at Walmart for $5.00 each.
