Re: neat Christmas gift

Bought my son one for Christmas last year and they are great. Really sharp, easy to change blades. But me....I'm so 50 yrs ago I can't give up my "traditinal" knife. :lol:

NEW WEBSITE for my Strings

I finally went ahead and made my own string website. Please stop by https://deerboyarchery.wixsite.com/trinitystrings and take a look. I rebranded from DeerBoy Archery to Trinity Strings because I found "Deerboy Outdoor Products" and didn't want anyhassles. Same string - different name and it also h...

Re: TELL ME SOMETHING

I shot a few deer early in my "crossbow career" with a peep and single sight pin. Dead on at 20 and "top of the back" at 30-35. I think you would be just fine....but wabi makes a good point about light gathering....the peep will make it a bit harder at dawn/dusk...but no different than a vert bow wi...

Re: Science question

What SEW said. Different arrows of the samw weight can have much different drag. So 2 arrows could weigh the same and be going the same speed, but the one with more drag will slow down quicker. Of course this will be most noticeable at longer distances. You may not see much difference inside 30 yard...

Re: How many days have you bow hunted for Deer this season?

I'm well over 30 hunts. I never keep track. Mostly evenings. Took 4 with my crossbow and 1 with my AR15

Re: Is anyone deer hunting at 100+ yards?

Also, you said you have stock diablos and 100gr heads. That puts you at the minimum 350gr arrow weight. That means at distance your arrow is losing speed and momentum much faster than a heavier arrow. That means at distance your arrow penetration will suffer. Yes you are right I understand that. I ...

Re: Is anyone deer hunting at 100+ yards?

I limit my shots to 35yds or so on whitetail deer. Is the bow accurate enough to shoot longer...yes. Would my arrow be lethal at say 50 or 75 yards...yes. But as others have said, too much can go wrong from the time the shot is fired until it gets to the 100 yd target. Also, you said you have stock ...

Re: knife sharpener

I have a work sharp (among several other sharpeners) and it works great. Once you get a knife sharp I only use the finest belt and about 5 strokes per side and I'm good to go again. And by that I mean I can shave my arm hair with it. But it does take some practice as you can burn the tip off of a kn...

Re: Lectured about energy .....

I have shot an Ibex at 25 yards, a ram at 20 yards, and two deer at 18 and 22 yards and all the arrows passed through and the animals didn't go very far. If the arrow passes completely through the animal it was traveling with sufficient energy. Any more energy is just going to bury it deeper in the...
