[quote]... I don't imagine Mathews would be making and selling smaller ATA bows if people were not shooting them well.[/quote] They are made for shooting something under 35 yds that doesn't have an X on it and a vital zone of 9" ... that's where the market is.
The forum is replete with posts complaining about FPs and BHs not hitting the same POI ... and most are related to super critical bows and bow hand torque ... so I wouldn't say everyone is shooting them well. Short ATA bows are demanding and not everyone has the consistency of form to shoot them accurately/ethically beyond 40 yds with broadheads.
Hunting Eastern Hardwoods isn't much of a challenge for accuracy and consistency if measured in bowhunting success ... Hunting Western Sage Flats or above Timberline is another ballgame all together. It all depends on your needs and hunting style ... and how much you demand of yourself. Like said, shoot'em all, but you owe it to yourself to try a 70/29 Prestige if you can find one ... or an MR-7 or MR-6.
