Re: Trail Cams

I have around 12 cameras with bear boxes and use the python lock on each one (I wish they were all keyed the same). I started with all low end 3-4 mega-pixel cameras I picked up at Walmart on clearance for $25-30 a piece. Each year I went to Walmart in the summer when they put their cameras on clear...

Re: Trophy Ridge XV530iR has arrived.... Wow !

For those of you that have this scope do you think it will be brighter than my Twilight DX on my M405? I was thinking of buying a Hawke XB30Pro before next season. Thanks in advance

Re: Salt licks

What are trophy rocks?? They are mined in the U.S, it is an all natural mineral supplement. One thing I need to research more is the difference between sodium and salt. I was told salt is a product of oil production. I noticed the Trophy Rock web site has a couple new products- one is for water the ...

Re: Salt licks

I like to use trophy rocks, if I can get a 20lb one that is best, if not the 12lb one will do. Also use their granules mixed with Purina Antler Max. I was making my own but found the antler max was same price if I made my own. I just put some trophy rocks out and all are gone but one. I have been ro...

Re: Reducing scent

I use Atsko or DeadDownWind to wash my hunting clothing once it is dry I put them in one of those space bags and get all the air out. Store them like that until hunting season. If possible wait or one of those good downpours and hand them up outside in the woods while it rains. Let them dry and back...

Re: Are we nuts?

I don't think it's because we are nuts that I think about the faster/greater/newer xbows as something needed to hunt with. It seems like with anything companies are adding more options, bigger motors, extra lumbar support. I was reading an article about the first $100,000 truck geared towards guys w...

Re: The Thunder is back in the house!!!

I keep telling myself I don't need a backup to my M405. Then I think which model would I want to buy to back it up- bulldog400, another 405, 380, or 355. One of those 2017 405's would be nice, I had better not get on ebay until they are all sold out.

Re: Twilight DLX

I just took mine off and these are the numbers on the inside of the Butler Creek flip up caps: 5-6 for the rear bell and 9 for the front bell. The front cover does not fit tight when compared to the rear one. They are definitely not my Leupold screw on covers but do the job. I bought the blizzard cl...

Game Camera Camo

Does anyone have any ideas for camouflaging game cameras to prevent theft? I normally F26 bark to my bear boxes but I am looking to improve blending them into the tree. Have not had one stolen yet but I know the lock needs addressing. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance

Re: Can I use longer bolts?

I started shooting 22 inch FMJ out of my M405; they fell great very accurate. Now I shoot 20 inch BEE, plan on buying Zombies or Spynal Tapps they will be 20 inches. Maybe my reasoning is wrong but a longer bolt should be more stable in flight but will flex more so a stiffer bolt is needed. Remember...

Re: Nice rub pic!

That is a nice rub; hope you get a chance at putting an arrow through the buck that made it next year. I went out last weekend; no sheds. Looked through my pictures and last year it was March when I started seeing one horned bucks running around. I will head out in a week or two.
