Re: Totally unexpected

Sounds like shoulder hit to me and the quartering away angle was what allowed that BH to hit and not open but snap off. Lots of BH test videos where they shoot BHs into plywood or something at a quartering away angle. Many do not do well in that test. Hope you find the deer but ...... I don't think ...

Re: Good Start to 2019

Don't want to thread jack but since it was mentioned. What is the best way to deal with ticks or insects on your deer when it's still hot out? Durn ticks will drop off as the carcass cools. The rest are wantin to eat as in yellow jackets, flies want to lay eggs n the maggots feed. Durin hot weather...

Re: Doe # 2 bites the dust

Great job! to both you and your wife. Really good considering the heat we've been having. I sat last night in a spot where my buddy missed one, killed one and then 2 days later I killed one (almost 2 tat night) and saw zip. Hardly even any birds. HOT HOT HOT

Good Start to 2019

Although I have not been able to get out as much as I normally do in the very early season, I have been enjoying a great year. Missed opening day, but got out on Day 2 which was a Sunday. Had a doe come into my feeder that is situated on what is now and abandoned old "farm". It's an odd spot, but be...

Re: Micro arrow opinions

I shoot 16: BEZS with 110gr brass insert, 125gr BH, Lumenok and 2: feathers. Coming in around that 425gr mark and hit very very very very hard. ONe of my 27 strand FLemish strings, and nothing else to slow things down on the limbs. Shoot that arrow from my 335 and 355 with great accuracy from either...

Re: Made some awsome biltong today

It is from northern Africa. I have a similar setup I use that uses a cardboard box and a trouble light with a 100W incandescent bulb. Tastses great! And is very different from jerky.

Re: rookie mistake tonight

Buy some small 1" target dots, and then you can shot at multiple bulls-eyes. Helps you make a broad-head target last a bit longer too.

Re: Where were you when the world stopped turning

Was at work and my boss came by and said "we have a world event taking place". So we went up to a mezzanine where we had a TV and we watched for hours. One girl freaked out and asked me if it was the end of the world....I reassured her... the planes had hit the towers by the time I got to the TV, an...

Re: FROM A 2 STAGE TRIGGER TO A 1 STAGE

Tha Assassin's have a similar mechanism to the ACP. It was released well prior to the ACP and rhumered that it would be designed into a drop in for the following year, which it was. The Assassin had the sliding/traveling trigger. Different design all together. To the best of my knowledge it is not ...

Re: FROM A 2 STAGE TRIGGER TO A 1 STAGE

Anthony,
I believe that bow has an ACP ProShot trigger. If so, then it's a simple screw position change. There is a screw sticking out by the lever. If you want 2 stage you take the screw out if you want single stage you leave the screw in.

Re: Setting the Correct Speeds

I basically follow Dan's method (xcaliber) and it makes for a quick job. Here are some things to remember and tips I learned along the way..... The speed ring will not affect the 20yds zero at all. You are really only adjusting the magnification power of the scope, therefore the reticle at the cente...

Re: What is a good FOC

I haven't checked mine in a while, but like Boo said 20% or more is definitely gooder. Makes for funner shooting too. For reference I shoot 16" zombie, 110gr brass and a 125gr BH. Balanced out on the back with a Lumenok and 3 feathers.......although I see no drop off in accuracy if I have plastic no...
