Re: 20" Gold Tip Laser II Weights?

A 'new' GT L II w/ brass inserts, alum nock and 4" vanes w/ 100 gr point is very close to 408 gr. Add 25 gr for 'old' GT, [.007" ...

Bare shaft-aluminum rear and brass insert - 280.9 grams
Bare shaft-aluminum front and rear insert - 214.8 grams

Plus or minus a couple of grams either way.

Browning X-Cellerator rifle sling

I always try to pass things along that seem to help me during hunting season and to me this sling is worth it weight in gold. I have used the Browning X-Cellerator sling this past season and love it. It adjust to the length you need for carrying simply by grasping the buckle and sliding it back and ...

Nothing wrong with harvesting a young one if you can use the meat. Not as much meat, but it can't be beat for taste!
I have taken 7 does this year and one buck. The freezer is almost empty. :shock: My crew of 5 put it away quick.

I wraped mine a week or so ago with the limbsaver wrap desigened to wrap around the handle of a verticle bow to take the hand shock out. I like it! It took so much of the twang out of the sound and muffed it to a thunk. Mades a big difference in my book. It along with the retention spring dameners a...
