Designed with the beginner in mind, Parker's Buck Hunter is a lot of bow for such a small price tag. This compound is very lightweight, easy to adjust, and has a smooth dual cam system with cable stops for a changeable back wall. Rated at speeds up to 286 fps, this bow is not deemed very fast in today's world, but as many know, speed helps, but is not a deciding factor in most cases. The fact it is available from 40 to 70 lbs in adjustable increments of ten pounds, plus a large brace height and axle-to-axle measurement make this bow the perfect one to get you into the sport of Archery!
This bow is only available in Trebark's Big Woods Camouflage. For a low-priced bow targeted for beginners, you will not be disappointed with the overall fit and finish.
This bow is CNC machined out of a solid piece of 6061 aluminum. Compared to other models being produced with three separate pieces, this style is much more dependable and includes less room for error in the manufacturing process. It includes a common straight cable rod with a plastic cable slide, but can be replaced with an angled rod to nearly reduce all horizontal torque created at full draw. Although there are not many cutouts in the riser itself, this bow is still efficiently designed to be around half the weight of higher end models. This bow is available in right or left handed models, perfect for the unsure of his shooting style at the moment.
The Parker Buck Hunter includes a redesigned version of their Power-Tuff composite limbs made by Gordon. The rotating module with 6" of draw length adjustability is an invaluable asset, changeable with the simple act of rotating a module on both cams with an allen wrench. As with most other bows on the market, the draw weight can be easily adjusted without a press with a simple turn of the limb bolts equally on each side with an Allen wrench.
Parker's low-wrist Kraton grip incorporates an in-line technology to keep your hand from applying unnecessary torque to the bow. Made out of their Synprene rubber, it is very comfortable and warm to the touch compared to metal grips or sideplates. The grip may be a little larger than most, but the overall thickness is on the low end of the spectrum, so it is perfect for beginning archers to get used to.
Parker's dual cam design that comes with the Buck Hunter is rated to 286 fps IBO, and is comfortable to hold at any draw weight due to its 80% letoff measurement. The cam system utilizes a rotational mod system, as well as dual yokes for the ability to fine tune and sync the cams efficiently. They also incorporate a somewhat softer cable stop at each cam and external spacers matched to create a perfect centershot situation.
The Parker Buck Hunter's draw cycle is extremely smooth, due to the soft, round shape of the cams and the pre-flexion of the limbs. Peaking about half way to the back wall, it contains an extremely generous valley. A forgiving 7" brace height allows for more accuracy, even though it may deduct from some speed noticeable in bows with shorter brace heights. Similarly, this bow stands out from the rest with a 35.5" axle-to-axle measurement. Long enough to be ideal for target shooters, it utilizes this design for maximum shootability. At full draw, the solid limbs, large valley, dual cable stops, and slim grip create an easy to hold shooting platform.
