Re: Blessed with my first Double Sat Night

Great job! I love reading these stories and trying to visualize the hunt that is described. Are the deer doing crop damage in the area you hunt! I'm just curious as to why there is such a need to reduce the population. It's a "high end" lakeside neighborhood. The deer are over running the neighborh...

Blessed with my first Double Sat Night

I'm hunting another neighborhood this year and we have 30 "CDMAP" tags to try to fill. This is a state program where landowners can get together and talk with the biologist and basically get depredation tags for hunters to use in season only. So the MO up here is to cull what we can. Been using the ...

Re: After work doe harvest.

Congrats and a great story. Like many here I go through the same emotions after a shot. But one difference is with my hard hearing, I don't hear the crunching unless they are on top of me and I never hear the crash. Maybe if it was all crunch leaves,....but here in NC it's a lot of pine needles.

Re: Trailblazer broadheads

I always go heavy. 110gr brass insert and a 125gr BH. Ramcat 125 leaves a helluva hole, and fly really really well.....I think due to the scooped out ferrule. Their "toughness" is not as good as I wish it was but the terminal performance is really good. I put one clean through the bison in my avatar...

Re: Trailblazer broadheads

Try a Ramcat. I have always had very good blood trails with them.

Another good option is a 4 blade Slick Trick.

With a fixed blade that flies true you won't even have to concern yourself about blades opening. Blood trails with the Ramcat are pretty amazing, IMO.

Re: Dang Ticks!!

I was the first person the military system tested for the lone star meat allergy. Alpha Gal test I think it was. For me, the leaner the red meat, the more I felt like I was getting the flu. Everyone has different symptoms. Mine lasted for about 3 1/2 years and I’m over it now. That's good to know.....

If you shoot him does it count as a doe?

Re: Dang Ticks!!

Here in NC it's usually pretty hot during Sept-Oct so I have several sets of camo, and it gets washed a lot because I'm sweating my butt off. I too have been using the Sawyers, but it's like $25 for 2 big bottles that will only treat 10 pieces of clothing. Like Joe I treat the pack, seat, everything...

Dang Ticks!!

So far this season has been....like the rest of 2020....odd. Missed a doe at 30yds cause she ducked my arrow, and picked up 2 Lone Star ticks!! I found one after a few days and found the other after about 1 day. These are the ones that can make you allergic to mammal meat :shock: Just wanted to pass...

WTB - Exo Series (wide limb) Bow for Novice Hunter

Looking for an older wide limber for a new hunter. He is like 6'7" so the wide limb series will suit him well.

Re: A Cool Tip

Make a good easy to see picture of that and tape it to the inside of your limb up near the stirrup so you don't forget in the heat of the moment.

Or use a silver Sharpie - it will come off with alcohol when you want to take it off.
