Im just getting started, so heres the question. I got a PSE stinger I use for deer. can it be used for fish? I understand its gonna get filthy and I gotta convert it and all that, but would it be OK for a "beginner"? I know that theres a lot better out there but this is what I got in the closet. would it be a OK bow?
Thanks
Jason

If u can set it between 35-55lbs then it'll prolly be fine unless u are shooting in really deep water then pulling back more poundage might be necessary.

Best advice is don't beat up good hunting bow just find an old bow on Craigslist for $20-$30
This ^^^ plus if you use your hunting bow for fish you have to set it up again later for deer, then tear it down, etc...

An el cheapo craigslist bow is the cheapest way to go, and I wouldn't use my deer bow to fish with, I've got all kinds of bows in my basement rigged with reels, everything from an old Jennings compound that a guy at work gave me to a couple oneidas to a mission x4 and a recurve, they all do basically the same thing, just try and find something cheap and go with it

I might just do that. I was trying to make myself buy a new deer bow next year:D. I might just play it safe and do what yall are saying.
Thanks
