This is why I only shoot one arrow and go get it and shoot again . Used to shoot or more arrows but after breaking more arrows then I care to recall I shoot one . Doing it the other way got too expensive .

Re: Slick Trick Questions

I used the 100 grain SS Standards last year and killed my buck with them. He died very quickly and left a decent amount of blood on the ground. In the past when I used them with a compound and hadn’t been as large of a blood trail. They are very accurate. Blades seem to always be buggered up after I...

The tree I had worked on had fallen from a storm. It was wedged between two trees and blocked my entrance and would hamper me later if I killed a d...

Re: Worked in the woods today

I have a couple bridges by the house. When the leaves are gone you can see one of them. I guarantee that you have been very close to my house. You have prolly drove right by where I hunt.

Re: Worked in the woods today

It was just a sprinkle. Not even enough to knock the dust down on the gravel road.

Re: Worked in the woods today

A buddy from work loaned me a sickle so I can cut through some of the tall grass. Going to work on that tomorrow or Tuesday. I also need to cut on another fallen tree.
