    Ok, I think it's great that you are so young and so motivated about bow hunting, I wish I would have picked it up at your age. Besides that and even before the responses get super technical, which I know is what you are looking for, I think you need to think about simpler things. Seasons for archery deer and antelope overlap, you could technically shoot your pronghorn one day and be out the next going after deer. Without time between hunts to readjust to a separate bow this could make things difficult. The most effective thing to do in my opinion is to pick the bow you are most comfortable with, shoot it as much as you can from now till Aug 1 and roll with it through the season seamlessly. It's not like you are going from shooting a gopher to a water buffalo, both bows will be effective and the more dialed in you are with one, the easier the transition, actually the only transition will be your hunting tactics, your shot will be second nature. This is all IMO but I just wanted to thow it out there, I will be hunting deer and pronghorn with my bow this summer and the thought of switching bows between the two makes zero sense.

    I was shooting 45 pounds up until about mid October then by mid December I was shooting 70 pounds! I don't care what bow I'm hunting with, give me some sticks and string and I'll be happy! Hunting beats everyday life by a long shot!

    I have to agree with the single bow option. But I think you are lookin for the best combo with the gear you have.. I think you should take the Omen pro.. It may not be as smooth as your evo right now but 3 months of shooting will stretch that string out just right. The only thing I would change is swapping the two sights, I think the 7 pin will be more reliable out to long ranges than your 3 pin Hogg. Other than that, I think you have a lethal game plan. Good luck, keep up the good work!

    I would stick with one bow as well, practice with one.......hunt with one. That way you don't have a different feel when makeing the switch from hunting deer to pronghorn, just my opintion.

    I believe those are movable sights.

    I don't think the benefits you mentioned about each bow while valid would not supersede the benefits of just sticking with one bow, and have the other as a backup.

    If it were me I would take both, and shoot the smooth one first, if you miss, you can re-draw and shoot them with the fast one.

    That's a good point ruttin, you have to have a back up bow.
