Hi Yall, I've had several xbows, but this is first computer. I liked worst xbow better than this thing. Feel like a blind man w/ a chain saw, but needed this to get here please bear with me. Really enjoy reading your thoughts. Hence.... awshucks

Welcome!!!
And don't worry, you'll get used to the computer doing as it pleases - not as you want it to do. :lol: :lol: :lol:
Mine was suddenly going blank and not responding last week. I thought it was gasping it's last breaths, but now it seems to be fine? Darned thing will probably blow up when I need it most. :?
It could always make a good crossbow target :twisted:

awshucks: I spent every April of my youth not far from where you live.
My Dad and I used to camp out at Shady Lake State Park and hunt turkeys in the National forest. We killed some awesome Gobblers in that National Forest!

You live either down HW 8 past Board Camp or down HW 88 past Cherry Hill, don't ya?

JCB No, I live on 270 west of Acorn, which is 4 miles north of Mena, moved here from IL in 2002. Gotta love this 41/2 month deer season. I've got three ladder stands up on my place, but very few deer passing thru. Last snow I took atv thru 40 acres, not one track. awshucks

awshucks: Yes, deer are scarce around Mena. They always were, even when I was a kid. One reason is the terrain and folks who let their dogs run the deer crazy all year round in that rough mountainous area.

But you do have some turkeys around. If you are not a turkey hunter yet, you need to become one--just because of where you live. You won't regret it.

turkey hunting

Post by awshucks » Sun Jan 22, 2006 6:41 pm

JCB, You're right. Minor problems though. Due to health issues I finally got a Mobilty Impaired Permit [MIP] from AGFC. Great spot 5 miles away. Problem is Natl. Forest land w/ AGFC food plots ect. USDA doesn't recognize MIP. I could take atv there w/ all the goodies except for them Been to Mena office, waiting on call back from Hot Springs, who told me at first they didn't make exceptions for handi-capped. I asked if they had a ramp to their front door and great big stalls in rest rooms. More as it happens. awshucks










hot Springs.
