Re: OT Knee Replacement

Had mine replaced Sept 2014. So was pretty anxious to try it out this year in the field. performed with no issue at all. Pain free and mobile in that leg anyway. It will take a year to be the best it can be that's true. No picnic either going through therapy but all worth it. Ican climb a tree stand...

Strange deer noise

Sitting in blind this evening and sudden heard a strange screaming sound very close to me. Sounded like a large parrot sceech. After I locate sound direction I could see the white tail flipping then bounding away. I have never heard that sound out of a deer before. Got to assume it was some warning ...

Re: Crossbow hunts with lots of pictures ...

These are the times that live forever thanks to your camera RJ. I will never forget that doe as long as I live thanks to you.

Re: matrix 330 anti-dry fire

To heat small screws like that the best thing to use is a soldering iron or Weller gun. You can put the tip right inside the allen head and keep it there for a few minutes. That will loosen up the locktite for you. Better to have very localized heat than a broad heat.

Re: OT-What is the world coming to?

I think it is getting clearer every day the fight needs to come home. I have great respect for the NATO groups trying to rid our world of this cancer by fighting them on their turf. But, nows the time to bring it home and get them under control in our countries. The only way this will happen is with...

Re: Last hunt a bust

I think you all are correct. In that my shot was not exactly where I thought it was. They more I think on it the more I feel he may have been quartering away from me not exactly broadside. This would explain why no pass through. Arrow went in where I thought the sweet spot was and angled away into t...
