Re: Mayday! Mayday! It finally happened!

Great shot at that distance! More proof that it isn't blazing speed that kills; its a well placed arrow with a sharp broadhead. Congrats!

Re: Annual venison dinner will happen

That 4-pt rule is both a blessing and a curse. You eventually start to see more big bucks, but end up seeing a lot more smaller bucks as well. It would be challenging with a 4-pt rule around here. Prior to this season, it had been 11 years since I bagged something with four points on one side with a...

Re: I was gonna buy another crossbow

That stainless is a beauty! :thumbup: I have a blued Blackhawk in .357 with a spare cylinder that will shoot 9mm. I wish it was in stainless. I took it out on the rifle opener in VA hoping for a doe, but as my luck this year has been I only saw two bucks. I'd like to take one with my pistol for the ...

Re: That's a wrap - sort of.

Congrats on a good season. That ice makes me cold just looking at it. :lol: I couldn't imagine sitting on it all day. It sure is pretty though. When I think fishing, I think water that is swimming temperature.

Re: just my luck!

I've done that more times than I care to admit, though normally not on a tree that big. :lol: It happens. I've found that as it starts to get dark, saplings are one of the first things to disappear from view. They're still there. You just don't see them anymore until your arrow goes bouncing off tar...

Re: Persistence Pays Off

Congrats on the buck! The Exomax with Firebolts and a good mechanical head has always been a great combination.

Good luck outsmarting that big buck. I'm always surprised how close they will get to houses.

Re: How old is old

I'm a young pup at 49. I'm trying to enjoy it all while I can. Some of the hunting treks I take are a bit too much for my family members in their 70's, but they're still getting out there when the conditions and situations are right.

Re: Buck'd Out. What now?

You’ve had a dream year! Are you going duck hunting? Yes, it has been an unbelievable season. I keep waiting for someone to pinch me. Yep, I'll be about 16 miles NNE of Stuttgart, AR on the Cache River National Wildlife Refuge at 4am just about every day of the first duck season. This time next wee...

Luck. A little goes a long way.

Since my buck hunting is over for this season, I've resorted to alternatives. This morning on the last day of the muzzleloader season I accompanied my adult daughter and brought along my Micro to try and fill a doe tag. It was plenty cold enough, but apparently the full moon had them bedded early th...

Re: Buck'd Out. What now?

I have the same problem. 1st day of our “gun” season. 7AM. Tagged out. https://i.postimg.cc/2yK81qrY/EA319488-1-B65-4-D95-B4-A0-A4-C728-B824-BB.jpg Congrats on your buck. Yep, that one probably would have taken my last tag as well. :lol: He's a nice one. Whatcha' shootin'? That looks like a smooth-...

Buck'd Out. What now?

Well, the hunting gods have shined on me this season in a big way. I was able to take two 8pt bucks with my Matrix 350 in October. Fortunately, the primary place I hunt in Virginia has three buck tags. With 24 days off planned during November, I found myself in a situation many of you have to deal w...

Re: Church Buddy's Buck

That's a nice one. It shouldn't be long before he starts to move in daylight. You might have better luck setting up along his travel route to get to the feeder. Good luck!

Re: Are harvest numbers down ?

2. Less and less people are hunting these days...more tree huggers, less people want to enjoy the outdoors, life being more complicated, etc. :cry: Black powder season started in Virginia this past Saturday. My daughter took a doe and was one of only six shots we heard all morning. A dozen years ag...

Re: New 2020 Bows!

I think there will be some serious limb breakage for 2020! OMG! 325# draw. I thought my Micro harnessed a lot of energy. Thank god for the Charger. I kind of wish they would show the weight as equipped. My Micro 335 is very light until I add 3# of well built accessories and that doesn't include the...

Re: Small hand held GPS

I've owned a few Garmin units and all of them have performed well. One option I would recommend is to get an unit with an electronic compass. Though it isn't necessary, it certainly helps you get started in the right direction. Units without a built in compass have no idea which way you are facing i...
