Re: Tuff Gettin Old!

Vix, i try to be a venison freezer half full kinda guy.. you gotta find a silver lining & i see 2 in your situation: 1. you remembered where your stand was! 2. if you cut your chores in half cuz you can't do them in the same time as 5 years ago, then you have to spend twice as much time at camp!

Replaced a new Twilight DLX

Santa brought me a micro 335 with a Twilight DLX scope for christmas. Everything was working fine but last week when i had to take it out again for a daydream hunt only the green illumination was working, not the red. I could easily have lived with that but when you pay almost $800 for something it ...

Re: Dry Fire

Newbie, i just read the micro 355 pics thread & see what you mean. lots of posts, very few pics. kinda a sad commentary on humanity but, you know, for a retired guy in a warm winter with no ice on his favorite fishing lakes, it beats what's on TV! Cup of coffee, couple xmas cookies, another log on t...

Dry Fire

Is a dry fire still considered a dry fire when you have a anti-dry fire component on your bow? I have been reading & learning on this forum about arrows, strings, broadheads etc. and see mention of dry firing. I just purchased a 335 micro & it has an anti dry fire system. Don't other excal bows have...

Re: Let's hear about X mas gifts

i had retrievers most of my adult life. i hunted upland birds but really got after waterfowl. most uniques dogs i had were curly-coated retrievers. not very flashy but tough coats and very quiet when jump shooting. anyway, that's why i'm such a rookie when it comes to archery.

Between trips to his sister-in-law and his wife's parents we snuck away, assembled our bows & fired a few bolts. My 2 shots were ...
