Re: Ot ...The virus scare

I just wish the media would post per capita numbers when they do the comparisons. I've been tracking NCs cases. We have done some things like close schools and bars/reataurants/salons/tattoo places...but not a "shelter in place order". 458 cases as of an hour ago. With a population of 10.4 million t...

Re: Mechanical head premature opening test (Graphic heavy)

If you are shooting 30 yards or more and getting good accuracy with your broadheads and they are opening in flight then what is the problem? I had one that I suspected would open in flight and shot it at 30 yards anyway and it flew about 20" high over the top of the target. Now I suspect in that ca...

Re: Mechanical head premature opening test (Graphic heavy)

I'm sorry, but I don't think these tests prove a thing. The NAP Spitfire was tested with bows as little as 4lbs to ensure the broadhead will open. So what actually opened these broadheads, the inertia of the shot or, most likely, hitting the sheet of paper? The only way to be 100% sure is with slow...

Re: Mechanical head premature opening test (Graphic heavy)

Great test and test setup!! ON those open blades it would be interesting to try to calculate the rate of spin you are seeing too. In the first pic you can clearly see how the blades rotated from paper 1 to paper 2. Maybe a good fixed head on a good arrow isn't out of the realm of possibility since y...

Re: CORONAVIRUS SCARE- INFORMATION WE ARE NOT RECEIVING

Mortality rates being reported are way out of whack because as Anthony says, not many or any of the mild cases are being tested and confirmed. I heard a doctor yesterday who was very reasonable. The one exception to this is South Korea where they are doing really good testing. There the actual morta...

Re: Creepy ghost happenings out in the woods

I have no idea if Squatches still exist today, possibly in very remore areas but your arguments are the typical ones. 90 % of people hunt within 1 mile (or maybe even just a few hundred yards) of a road. So the whole "trail cam" thing doesn't really work for me. Saw some studies where scientists too...

Re: A question for the accuracy nuts

You certainly do not have to do all of the above post for good "hunting accuracy"....but my opinion is "why not?" Better accuracy won't hurt your shot on a deer in any way. I do many of the above but not all. #1 and #2 go to the "aim small miss small" mentality. I do not like the chevron type reticl...

Re: A question for the accuracy nuts

Here's a little tidbit that may be helpful. Years ago when I shot competitive 3D, I used a fine tipped metal marker to name each arrow. For example, I was a huge UFC fan so I named each arrow after a fighter. The reason being that it was easier to remember a name than a number or letter. If 'Randy ...

Re: fixed or mechanical

Fixed. Slick trick viper trick or QAD exodus. And you can practise with them so you know your exact POI for all your hunting arrows.. Do you find the blades get dull if you practice with them? I retire my slick tricks I've shot deer with and use those for practise/sight in and then put the exact sa...

Re: mechanical broad heads

I actually shot a moose quartering away took out lung and part of the heart. From the ground and the moose ran 65 yards down a logging road before first visible blood !! I have shot them with nap thunderheads and rages and every horizontal shot has had a long lead time before first blood. Then easy...

I saw one this year while driving to one hunting spot. But funnt this came up.......... I work with a group that bow hunts and donates venison, so we work with the wildlife biologist quite a bit.

Re: mechanical broad heads

The entry hole with a mechanical will always be smaller. But your exit should be full size. A blood trail can be very different depending on the situation. Shots from elevation with the exit hole lower usually gives a better blood trail. Shots from the ground (parallel) has the exit and entry holes...
