Re: Shoot-thru netting . Ill advised?

I shoot spitfire heads (not newer heads, have had them for a while). I tested them through the screens because I could not see the arrow flying true after going through the screen. Out to 40 yards I had zero change in impact. That really surprised me. I do recommend that if you plan on shooting thro...

Re: new website

One more thing, when I'm in the board index it no longer shows who's posted last. Again, I prefer the old format. Also, I'm sometimes having trouble finding the 'return to crossbow hunting' option after the last post of a thread. Just mentioning it for awareness, not to complain. Thanks. Paul Paul,...

Re: new website

Just noticed another thing. No more stats are shown for the person posting on a thread.....no join date, no number of posts....I'm really missing our old style forum. I guess I'm a creature of habit. :oops: what is awesome is all the immoges at the top of the page. :D oh yeah, in the board index pa...

Dennis, I have been wondering how you, your wonderful wife and family have been making out with this storm. Please take all the safety precautions and stay safe. I pray for your family, and all those infected by this years storms.

Stay safe

Re: Staying warm while hunting (sitting)

I have always found that the trick is to not let your feet get sweaty when getting to the stand. I use normal hunting boots (600grams) to walk in with and on cold days I use boot blankets (1000 grams). Mine has the zipper up the back and I just step into them when I get there. On real cold days, I w...

Re: Converting a C2 crank for left hand use

Thanks for thinking of me and the many other people that can not use the crank right handed. But seems I have been side lined as there seems to be a problem with my C spine and T spine so when I bend and put a little effort in to say cranking the cranker I have now with left hand it does not last l...

Re: Hello Everyone on the Updated Forum site!

I see you guys have discovered the new forum setup! :D There will be some tweaking yet, we will be adding a new header and a few other things. It does operate a little differently, all the features like "new posts" , "unread posts" etc. are all in the "quick links" icon at the top of the page. It i...

Re: SNAKE

WOW! :shock: I was sure glad to read through that and discover that it had a happy ending.... except for the snake of course! We have the Massassauga Rattler up here. I've come across a couple but they're fairly shy. I once pulled off the road to ummm.... return a rented coffee. Cover was sparse so...

Re: Trail cam crap

Trail camera's are a great tool. But remember it is only that, a tool. You will only see what the camera shows you, not what the camera missed. In other words, just because the camera does not take a picture does not mean there is no deer there. I use to build my own IR trail camera and belong o a f...

Re: Broadheads for moose

I use slick tricks with good luck but if your on the ground lots of times you shoot high and the exit hole is the same as the entrance . The whole chest has to fill before the blood will come out in a lot of cases . I have talked with many different hunters about archery moose hunting. The common s...

Re: Delima

As for a new target, the targets used at Boofest were well received. I do not remember the name, but others should be able to chime in.
