Hunting In The Rain

I was hunting in a light rain this morning and realized that I have never shot my crossbow in the rain so I was wondering how having wet bolts or water droplets on my rail could affect my shot? At a distance of 30/40 yards would wetness on the bolts and rail impact how the bolt would fly and potenti...

Re: Should I doctor Scrapes

The Active Scrape looks pretty interesting. I may give it a try.

Has anybody tried the Code Blue Grave Digger which is scented dirt you mix right into the scrape?

That deflection inside the Impala is remarkable.

Re: Should I doctor Scrapes

Longbow,

Just notice your comments above the image.

What king of doe pee have you found success with? Looks like the Code Blue and Tinks 69 are popular?

Re: Should I doctor Scrapes

Longbow Joe,

That's a big scrape!

Did it start off as a mock scrape or natural made by a buck? Are you putting anting into it?

Should I doctor Scrapes

So I speed scouted my stands this weekend and there is a big scrape on a small beech tree 20 yards right in one of my shooting lanes and has a licking branch hanging down. I have some friends who are telling me I should be putting different doe P scents in the scrape to keep the buck coming back. I ...

Re: BOLTS CHANGING TRAJECTORY

Check your trigonometry. :eusa-popcorn: I triple checked the math and it is dead nuts. Even laid it out in SolidWorks. A right triangle with a height of 20 feet and a base that is 57 feet (19 yards) will have an angle of 19.335 degrees. With this angle and a deer that is 18.00 inches thick the exit...

Blackout Speed Trap

I was at Cabela's yesterday and saw the Blackout Speed Trap. I think this is a fairly new target as it is not on Cabela's web site yet. It's 18.0 x 18.0 in size and is rated for field points and broadheads up to 540 fps. Shooting a Bulldog 440 my bolts bury pretty deep into the Rinehart target so th...

Removing Decals From Bolts

I have read on the forum that you can remove the decals on bolts with acetone. Can this be accomplished with a simple wipe down or do you need to soak them for a period of time?


Thanks

Re: Slick Trick Questions

Deerstalker,

What kind of fletching are you using and is it off-set or helical?

Re: Slick Trick Questions

Hi Don, The video was helpful. I always assumed that once the broadhead is seated hard against the front face of the insert it would not move but the video shows this is not the case. There must be more play between the components than I realized. I will use a set of V-Blocks to check my alignment w...

Re: Slick Trick Questions

Is there any actual difference between the Xbox tricks and the original tricks? They look the same to me?

I noticed the Xbox Tricks only have the 1 1/8 cutting option while the originals have the 1.0 option which I think would fly better?

Re: Slick Trick Questions

I do use 110 gr front inserts and also a true helical on my vanes so I am going to start off with the 100 grain to see how they fly and group. Hopefully my POI will be close to my field points. Based on everyone's feedback my optimism is high.
