Re: String strand loose...I know I need a new string...

Just came across this having recently shot my TD360 about 20 or so times. A strand broke in the same place as the previous poster's did. Should I melt and wax or replace altogether? It was assembled by Cabela's here in Ottawa. I will have to check brace height on this. It was marked on the rail of m...

A VERY slow start

Not to sure what's happening on the Quebec side, an hour outside of Ottawa. There are NO signs of rut activity. In fact, where there are normally many scrapes and rubs, absolutely nothing. To make matters worse, we have only seen two deer since Saturday. And the area is LARGE. Last year, we did not ...

Where did you input your coordinates Kirk? It kept expecting a numberical field for the Zip. Wouldn't accept our postal code format?

Going to throw a question out there on the buck bomb. I have a can of the dominant buck scent coming, but am hesitant to use it as I am a little concerned that the scent may keep the bucks at bay? If the scent is too powerful will it push what may be in the area away if it feels 'threatened' by it? ...

What a beautiful buck! :shock: Unreal! That will be a story well-remember. A trophy to say the least. Congrats on the recovery and on the tracking. You played him right and were rewarded. Great pictures and in my books, that's a 'buck of a lifetime' . Very happy for you. :D All the best! By the way,...

I have to agree with Mike P - the first season is the hardest. I lost mine 3 years ago and it is difficult beyond words that first time out. Those memories come flooding back like a tidal wave, but you have to let that process happen. It happens every year, but it changes. I definitely feel closest ...

If it weren't 400kms from Ottawa to Burlington and a little guy in tow, I would definitely give a hand Chris. From what you've said, you hit him. Arrow will tell alot if you can find that. Water is not going to make it easy. Do you have a dog? Good luck. I've hit a nice one and lots of blood / sign,...

Game Cart : Feedback ?

Just curious to hear of your experiences using a game cart. My uncle has recently had triple bypass and I will be doing the dragging (if the rifle hunt is a success) and may not have access to a quad. I'm not typically too far from a brushed trail, but once there can be a long haul. Do they balance ...
