Re: Med body, small rack 8, bizarre twist - literally

Congrats on the deer and the recovery! Great story. I have had similar experiences with the montecs. They fly great but not too much blood IMO. I shot a doe once 15yds through both shoulders with my Vortex and a 125gr Montec CS. Complete pass thru and with both shoulders broke she did not go far (ma...

Re: quills not lasting

why I use alum arrows ! Alum is not better. Shoot them into a foam target with a field point and you will easily bend them, or bend them pulling them out. Heck I even got a slight bend on an Easton Full Metal Jacket, which is just what is says, Aluminum over Carbon. Shot it and it was perfect. Shot...

Re: quills not lasting

Shooting a FP into a foam target puts a TON of stress on an arrow. As noted above...my suggestion is also to shoot FPs only into a bag target (you can make one easy enough with a burlap sack and old jeans, or I suggest the Yellow jacket Crossbow bag target), and only shooting broadheads into a foam ...

Re: Recommend Me A Reliable 100gr Expandable

How far do your deer typically run now? I would not expect an expandable like you are talking about to do anything to blood trail length. Put it through both lungs (with about anything) and it should not go far. 50 to 70 yds maybe. If you are hunting froma tree, make real sure to get 2 lungs and not...

I couldn’t believe there was much difference in strings until I tried a Force 10, and the difference to the stock strings on my Micro and M380 was very noticeable.
Was that a switch from the stock EL string to a Flemish F10? IMO Flemish strings settle things down a lot and absorb more shock.

Re: High performance string vs stock

My two cents on this is that yes a "high performance" string does add stress to the limbs. In particular to the limb tips. The older Dacron strings not only stretched but were very elastic. Stretch being defined as a permanent lengthening and elasticity being defined as the materials ability to leng...

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
