Re: 2016 Hunting Trip a Sucess

Congrats. Not having the bolt seated all the way back can cause an errant shot. Right before I shoot, I make sure the bolt is tightly seated. This is especially important if you are in a stand and pull your crossbow down from the hanger. I learned how this can happen while target shooting and had a ...

Re: Motivation Problem

Just get out there whenever you feel good about it. If it's 9 a.m. til noon, 1 pm til 4; whatever. This is supposed to be fun. You may be surprised to see a deer when you least expect one. Just get out there and enjoy.

Re: 2 in NY with Matrix

First, thanks for bellrivercrossbowhunter for posting pictures. We have the 3 to a side in our area of NY; this one was barely in that range, I know. I will not shoot a small button buck, a spike or any small deer. Also, I will shoot only one adult doe per year. I do however believe the antler restr...

Re: 2 in NY with Matrix

All I can admit to online is that it is a Matrix that is legal in NY. Our state has a 200# draw limit, which is another crazy rule among many in this state.

My matrix shoots approx. 330 FPS with the set up I'm using :)

I live in the Rochester area, but hunt mostly downstate in Delaware County,

Re: 2 in NY with Matrix

Note that I have pictures of the buck, however, I'm getting a message that the jpeg files that I uploaded are too big. If someone wants to add them for me I will email them to you tomorrow and you can post them thanks.

2 in NY with Matrix

Just got home from Delaware County today. Got a buck on Saturday,11/12 at 10:30 A.M. using the same broadhead (100 grain slick trick) and bolt (18' Gold tip Lazer II) that I used last Sunday morning on a large doe. The doe was a pass through at 20 yards and went about 75 yards. No blood trail for th...

Congrats on the fine deer. Great to know any physical limitations that we have may slow us down but will never stop us.

Re: Any cold weather hunters?

When it's really cold - I wear base layers of thermal wicking underwear and layers of more of the same type of material on top. Then a pair of insulated bibs with a one piece insulated XL suit on top of that with a hooded XL jacket on top of that. I put the artic shield overboots on top of my 2000 g...
