Ps. Iím absolutely loving mine. 2 deer have hit the dirt as a result of it so far this year.
Yes it is, this is probably the best bow I've every shot. It is butter smooth and at 70lbs, 30" draw, 460 grain arrow, I'm still getting 282 fps out of it, which is plenty fast for me. So far I've managed to get a doe, cow elk and this bull with it. I am hoping that it has a few more kills left in it for this year.

That is great news! My specs would be similar 31Ēdraw 66 pounds and similar arrow weight. Has been performing excellently and I just love to shoot it.

Congratulations! That's some real dedication there.

I have to admit that I am just not man enough to bowhunt in these temperatures. Kudos!

Thatís awesome work Cam, you make it look easy. Birds are some of the hardest things to get with a bow.
