Field Test Hunting PackBowhunting Backpacks

With the amazing proliferation of bowhunting gear since, comes increasing need for yet another piece of equipment: the bowhunting backpack.

The Elite Z28 for 2009 is essentially the same bow as the 2008-1/2 model except for the cam system. The earlier model bow used the Revolution Cams while the 2009 model introduces the “Z” Cams. Since this is the first Elite bow that I have had to test, I cannot comment on the differences between the two cam systems except to say that I was told that that the “Z” cams were developed to offer a smoother draw cycle and were intended to be more friendly for bowhunters.
