Re: Broadheads for moose

So just a quick update

Shot my first moose a young spike bull on Sunday morning at 9 03 am. Shot was 26 yards using a boltcutter. Moose ran about 50 yards and eneded up 25 feet from the logging road we were parked on. Boltcutter did a great job with a complete pass thru from my Vortex.

Re: Broadheads for moose

I use slick tricks with good luck but if your on the ground lots of times you shoot high and the exit hole is the same as the entrance . The whole chest has to fill before the blood will come out in a lot of cases . I have talked with many different hunters about archery moose hunting. The common s...

Re: Broadheads for moose

My group has 30 archery bulls to date. 1st item is check the regs but there is NO calf season during archery season that I'm aware of in Ontario. You can hunt with bow in late gun season when calf season is open. We will not allow anyone to use expandables on our moose hunt. That should give you a ...

Re: Vane Adhesion-Glue vs Tape

Have been using the tape on feather fletches for years now, and it works great! Like those before me have said, it is not for plastic vanes.

Re: Bolt cutters

While I am no expert and every deer is different, it's hard to say what exactly happened. What I can tell you is that a deflection may be caused by anything. From my experience ( my opinion only ) shooting from stands, or anytime you are not 100% square to the deer and get into the shoulder area thi...

Re: Fletching jig

Thanks all. Look like I'll be buying a blitz. When I was building arrows for the vertical I did one vane at a time and it worked well for me, even with the sub par jig I had. I'm hoping to do so physio on my shoulder ( rotator cuff ) to allow me to shoot the verticals again,haven't shot one in a six...

Fletching jig

Hi all

I want to get back into building arrows again. Any body have anything to say about the Arizona fletching jig?? Good or bad or is there something else one would recommend? Thanks in advance.

2014 Season hasn't begun but already off to a bad start

Went out to check the property I hunt and put up the camera again as I had a problem with it and hasn't been out for a month. Went to the tree to check my new hang on stand to find it GONE! All gone stand, chain and lock. I hunt a short distance from the property line and found brand new NO HUNTING ...

Re: My hunting land is a garbage dump for some rude slobs!

It's sad to see this happen, I pick up garbage along the river weekly. These low life sob's troll the back roads for hours and waste a whole tank of gas so they don't have to pay 5 bucks at the dump. It must give them a great feeling of victory. As my friend says " ya just can't fix stupid" Minimum ...

Re: Most hunters I know would do this!

Here in the KW area I have seen the police shoot! :shock: The standing joke is that if they are shooting at you, to "stand still " you wouldn't want to run into an errant shot :lol:

Re: AAAArrrrrrrgggghhhhhhhh

With the "Homeland security " thing going on, I don't think that ordering one from the States is possible. That is unless Dan has an export permit. Anybody know for sure?
