Re: Micro 335 Limb Failure

My gen 1 335 developed cracks near the top of the left limb during the first week of bow season. I was able to get the limbs replaced on about a week but was a little disappointed in the color match as was talked about earlier in this thread. The bow seems to have picked up some speed over the origi...

Re: CAMERAS ON CROSSBOWS

I'm using a Tactacam 4.0 with a Hawke picatinny mount. Works great I was able to verify my shot placement on a nice 8 pt last season and filmed 3 other bucks during the course of the season.k

Re: Advice on preventing a future miss

Just a thought but, when you stop a deer, they are on alert and looking to identify the sound. They are on full alert and can easily jump even the fastest setup when on alert. In that situation, 33-37 yards I'd aim lower third with the 30 yard pin. That being said, I rarely stop deer and haven't tak...

Re: Micro and 125 grain broadheads

I'm shooting 125 grain viper tricks with 110 grain brass inserts. 20" gold tip swift pros. 2" inch blazers and luminoks. Total weight is 433 grains. This set up works terrific in my micro 335. 1.2 inch groups @ 50 yards.

Re: Micro suppressor vs micro 355 vs 335

Too many choices nowadays ( and marketing hype for that matter). As others have pointed out, hunting skills are what's needed most. Killed plenty of deer with an old PSE strato flight express that was all of about 180 fps with a 140 grain broadhead. If bow length was my no.1 priority, then I'd buy t...

Re: Big woods vs agricultural deer

Concentrate on 'edges'. i.e.hardwood/swamp/ridge/stream/thick/open. Deer are edge creatures. generally, the more edges you combine in an area, the better a spot will be. I look for areas with at least 3 edges 4 are better. My most successful tactic has been to find areas like this and then use twine...
