Re: Black eagle bolt / components

I haven't had any issues with Black Eagle components on Zombie Slayers or Spynal Taps. But I've never tried any of their aluminum inserts either. I've always used brass or stainless steel up front and plastic nocks or Lumenok in the back. Everything I've used fit snug.

Re: Blessed with my first Double Sat Night

Congrats on the double! That's the most I've taken in one hunt with archery gear, though my son and I both doubled in the same day with my ExoMax. Yes, high deer population areas are unique hunting situation. You certainly get more opportunities, so more chances to hone your skills. If a deer busts ...

Re: After work doe harvest.

Congrats on the doe! It has to be something special to be able to harvest one so close to home. You have more patience than I do. If I'm sure I made good hit (I love lighted nocks) and I hear a deer fall, 20 minutes is all I can sand to wait. I've got even less patience, especially in fading light. ...

Doe, finally.

To say it has been a slow season for me in Northern Virginia would be an understatement. Finally today on my 12th sit, I laid my eyes on my first doe. We had a front move through today and it is starting to turn colder. I got in the stand about 3:45pm and they appeared at about 4:30pm. It was a nice...

Re: Scope cleaning

We're supposed to clean them? :lol:

If I'm lucky I notice at home and use a little windex and a soft tissue. More often than not I notice in the field and my shirt tail or shirt sleeve ends up taking care of it.

Re: Grandson got a doe yesterday

That's just awesome! Tell him congrats. I was with my kids when they each bagged their first deer and I'll never forget either hunt.

Re: Tac 100 scope problem

Yeah duckhunt, that is about what I figured with a custom setup. It’s good for hunting but just wanted to push the scope to the limit and myself. My Micro 400 is pretty close. I only had to make minor adjustments to get it hitting well enough to shoot targets out to 100. I just changed my settings ...

Re: Tac 100 scope problem

You've honed in on an issue without a simple fix. What we have is a scope that can account for the differences in launch speed. The reticle is calibrated for an arrow that launches at a certain speed then slows down at a specific rate. But the scope can't account for how fast the arrow slows down. D...

Re: Wow!! No punches pulled!!

I completely agree with him and applaud his choice of words. Back in July I confirmed that the Micro 400 Suppressor is capable of outstanding accuracy at 100 yards...from a bench, with a rest, with low/no wind at a stationary target, with the right arrows. But that's target shooting, not hunting gam...

Re: Does and young deer

Now on the flip side, I've always been told, and I would, take the larger of the two fawns should twins show up. In my experience, the larger of the twins is generally a yearling buck. I can't recall the larger one ever being a doe. I've hunted in some high deer population areas where they also hav...

Re: Persistence (Updated: Pays off)

Einstein said insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Well, my persistence was beginning to look like insanity to me so I decided yesterday to change things up. My 10 acre "Honey Hole" in Northern VA simply isn't hot right now. Since I live less than a mile f...
