Update! I plan to try two new things this season in terms of Broadheads.
1. is G5 Montecs. Fixed blade, one piece material make up. I spin tested my buddies, and these are the real deal as far as strength goes, bar none! Thus far, target shooting has proven field point accuracy to 50 yards!
2. is the Ramcats with the Hoyt. I have read reviews, and watched several videos depicting the short recoveries, I have to try them! :wink:
Matrix 330 (Xylia) Bushnell Trophy XLT / Single Stage Trigger Tech
Kodabow Scout (Karma) MFO Tagged Out Sights.
Micro 355 (Jinx) Nikon Bolt XR. TT Single Stage, Munch Mount
Matrix 380 (Max) Leupold Crossbones

Just picked up a new Badlands Impact fleece jacket and pants. Seems like real nice gear, time will tell. Got a great deal on them on Sierra Trading Post (great place for good deals)
Going to try out some QAD Exodus 100 gr. broadheads. I have them sitting there, just haven't had the time to shoot them yet. Although shooting the bow is on my list of things I need to do tomorrow.

I got my 350 LE since last season and recently added a Vortex Viper XBR scope to it. Then I got the Vortex Defender pop up caps for the scope which are some of the best made caps I have seen. Added an after market ADF and bought some new 18" Zombie Slayers and 100 grain 2" cut Swackers and I am ready to hunt.

Hi, my name is Rich, I'm a (*pick your prefix)-aholic.

Bought my first Xbow, a Bulldog 400 earlier this year.

MANY accessories followed. (TT, Dr S, Zombies, etc.)

One thing I picked up that really works well is the Spyderweb 18XL target.

One of the only things that stops my BD without issues.


I'm currently in counseling with Dr. Steve (but he's NOT helping :lol: )

My new gear for this year is a Hunter Safety Hanger System. This is a great idea they came up with when hanging your treestands. In the past I have used a bag and it worked but not like this system. Check it out on the web and if you get one you will like it.

Maybe you ought to change things around.

Maybe instead of leaving a map in your truck showing where you could be found, why not take the map with you and mark on it where you parked the truck? :mrgreen: :D :mrgreen: :D
