  • Best Elite hunting bow

    obviously any bow will kill a deer/bear (which is what ill be hunting with it)...but what do you guys think is the best one? Seems like im finding a ton of GT500s and Z28s...decent number of GTOs then some XLRs, XXLs, Senergys, E-Forces.....

    so i guess out of those 7 choices...what do you think would be the best overall choice? Give me some experiences with them

    I have yet to make a harvest with a bow....

    But if one of your intended critters is a 700lbs killing machine, then I would be going with the Judge/Pulse.
    More speed and KE is better for the dangerous game.

      Z28 is probably the most popular followed by the gto. Z28 is smooth with decent speed and the gto is fast, but not as smooth as the z28.

        700 pounds is very possible....my cousin killed a 640 pounder last year and my uncle got a 875 pounder this year....

          If an arrow shootin slingshot can kill a hog, any of them will work. From there it's a matter of what specs you like, and most of all, what bow fits you. I have shot nearly every Elite ever made. The Judge was the most accurate. i haven't shot my Pulse enuf to determine if it holds up to the Judge

                If you put the arrow where it needs to be, they would all be superb hunting bows.......

                    to open of a question.
                    how far (yardage)? A-A has some play in that arena


                    all around hunting ( open prairie,mountains, wooded timber climber or hang-on, pop-up blind) -- my go to would be GT-500 or Pure

                        Any of the listed bows will get it done. My #1 choice would be the GTO then Synergy.

                          I agree out of these options the gto would get my vote. 2010 gt 500 would be next on my list.

                          2007 Bowtech allegiance is my favorite hunting bow of all time, the gto is as close to that as I have found. The pulse may soon take over the allegiance.

                            I bet I could change your mind.

                              What about the HUNTER and the PULSE? Anyone considered them? I'm not familiar with the older bows like the GTO and the Synergy.
