Let Off %Contributors to this thread:
I just switched my 85% mods on my Halon to 75% let off and am really having a hard time shooting it. The bow wants to jump out of my hand. Is the 80% let off rule something that is really enforced in Montana?
Yes serious prison time if you cheat,
I don't know of a single person checked or charged regarding the % letoff rule. Another thought, I have never encountered a FWP Warden that has a scale to measure letoff and then to actually crunch the numbers to calculate the % of letoff for a particular bow in the field.
IMO, you don't have to worry about it.
A bunch of guys are buying the 90% let off models this year and you can "hold" for a very long time. A thirteen year old kid we go to church with bought the PSE model I believe and inside of a weekend was shooting paper plate groups at 70 yards. I'm going to write a book called "The Bow Hunter Next Door", ha
Its always best to follow the rules, whether you like em or not
Lol!!! I'm going to assume you're not serious.
That's good advice by sbschindler.
Funny enough, I did hear some conversation earlier this year among FWP people about carrying scales to measure let off and enforce the let off rules.
