Re: Tact zone scope ?

Adjust it for yards you are shooting your buck ...I adjusted mine clear fir 30 yards which I shoot in yard on target and 35 yds is my max on Buck ...
I like to use leaves and limbs of trees at that range also to get it clear not just the dime size target bullseye ....

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 orig...

Re: Thinking about a new ladder stand

Had very good use with the Outpost from Dick’s or Field and a Stream. Very reasonable price. Comfortable. Easy to install. Best to have a helper. I will second this. The Field and Stream Lookout Deluxe from Dick's (I have the 16 footer) is by far the best ladder stand I have ever used. A full platf...

Re: Micro 335 Limb Failure

I am on my 3rd set of limbs for my micro 335. Last winter, I noticed small cracks in one of the limbs. It seemed to perform fine and I hunted with it the rest of the season. It was still under warranty and the cracks bothered me so I contacted support. Dawn helped me via email. I had to send my lim...

Re: Assassin String advice

Putting anything on rail or servings on my micro 335 chewed up the servings..
I talked to Danny Miller a few years ago and he said Jim let everything dry..
I do use just little wax on servings tho!
