Wack a couple pythons while you're there. Looks like there's tons of them.

I used to have deer like that in my backyard including 2 twelve points. Now it's million dollar houses. They call it progress I call it BS!

Re: My Next Toy

Recurve or longbow I love the sound of a well released arrow. After shooting both as well as compounds I decided to see how difficult it is to make an efficient all wood bow. I know have 16 bows of oak maple ipe bamboo and hickory. My 66in hickory longbow at 55lb is my favorite with a homemade arrow...

Re: Last bow hunt of the season for me

Doc says my broken vertebrae have mended but still have a torn rotator cuff to deal with. Been getting out about once a week. Still sore but tired of sitting around watching TV. Had forkhorn and 26 turkeys walk past this afternoon. Tough getting to the stands but I've got to keep trying.

Re: You gotta love Illinois

Used to be a warden in Ogle county that was a real prick. Tried every trick in the book to catch us doing wrong never did. The state is so much in debt know they'll do anything for money..

Re: The rut is close

Re: Foamin at da mouth

I saw a doe that looked the same way 2 years ago. Seemed like a reaction to what she was eating.

Re: ATTN: Old stubborn men on this site!

I hunted over 55 years and probably used a harness 3 times now I'm sitting here with cracked ribs and 3 broken vertebrae on opening day. Stand was strapped chained and lag bolted to tree. Dropped out from under me like a trap door after I sat there for a half hour. Go the safe route. I'm lucky I can...

Never happen to me

My buddy and I went out to trim shooting lanes Sunday finished 3 stands and I climbed the 4th after directing the trimming I stood to get down. The next thing I knew I was riding in an ambulance after falling 22feet. Strap broke and stand dropped like a trap door. Cracked ribs 3broken vertebrae and ...

Re: Rage hypodermic nc and rage crossbow x in 125 grain

I shot a doe with the 150 hypo last year, amazing blood trail. One blade hit a rib and broke. Entry and exit wounds were huge.

Several years ago I ordered a bow on line which they said would arrive in a week. After waiting over a month I canceled payment. The next day USPS delivered the package

Re: How often do you practice?

I mainly shoot to confirm that everything is functioning correctly and scope is dead on. My excalibur is a killing machine but I still love the sight of a homemade wooden bow and arrow with my own flint knapped arrowhead hitting the mark. Still dream of living in primitive times and what it took to ...

Re: Broadhead selection

I used the boltcutters with good results and tried rage trypan 150 gr. Last year keeping with the heavier foc entry and exit wounds were huge I could have followed blood trail with my eyes closed. 1 blade did break from hitting bone.
