Is The Martin Archery Locust Accurate And Powerful? With an AMO length of 58 inches and available draw weights from 40# up to 55#, the Martin Archery Locust is almost as powerful as you could ever wish for. It is, at a minimum, the right draw weight for most small- to medium-game hunting purposes, and is definitely powerful enough for target and even competition archery. But what about its accuracy?
The Locust is, like most Martin bows, absolutely beautiful in form and function. From 40 yards, I was able to instinctively shoot 2-inch groupings with ease. If I'd modified the bow to use a sight and stabilizer, I imagine I could have narrowed that grouping down even more. As it is, the Locust is quite accurate and easy to use. Can I Use The Locust For Hunting?
With a minimum draw weight of 40 pounds and its 58? AMO length, the Martin Archery Locust is perfectly designed for traditional hunting and offers plenty of clearance for moving through brush or sticks. Since it's a bare-bones recurve, you have less things to worry about in the field, assuming you have the right skill level to hunt without those new-fangled accessories like fancy sights, Berger buttons, or stabilizers. I chose a 50# Locust for my testing purposes, and was able to easily harvest a 12-point buck with the bow this season. This bow is strong enough that I expect it to perform well for any types of hunting, even black bear.
Technically, it's powerful enough to tackle a grizzly bear, but I'm not quite crazy enough to hunt those with a bow. This item is in the category "Sporting Goods\Outdoor Sports\Archery\Bows\Recurve".
