Re: Canned hunts

I agree Agingcrossbower, I was not defending the HBM Hunters who hunt with us each year, but instead the Rio Bonito Ranch which I have hunted every year since 1994. It is a magical place that is dear to my heart as a consistent creator of adventure. And even if it were high-fenced; a twenty-six sqau...

Re: Canned hunts

Ladies and Gentlemen - For the record, the Rio Bonito Ranch in Texas where the Horizontal Bowhunter Magazine has its annual Winter Rendezvous is not a high fence ranch. Along its jagged border it abutts two ranches that are high fence, but that is the only high fence connected with the Rio. It is a ...

If we are not "firing" our bows then where did the expression "Fire in the bow" come from. I think I am confused....

Re: Do crossbows shoot bolts or arrows?

Re: Do crossbows shoot bolts or arrows?

Stash - I know what you mean. I personally know the guy that wrote that article and he is kind of an opinionated moron and that article is nothing more than his opinion. Think for yourself Amigo. Remember, the only right opionions are your own.

Re: Do crossbows shoot bolts or arrows?

This is what I think, just in case anyone gives a rip..... BOLTS AND ARROWS A look on the lighter side of projectile name-calling. “Da, well the crossbow ain’t archery `quipment cause it shoots bolts, not arrows!” claims the anti-crossbow expert. Jeez, I hate it when I hear that statement! I would l...

Re: Crossbow vs. Rifle?

The TAC-15 - You forgot to mention it is also very heavy, cumbersome and long making it undedisreable to the majority as a hunting weapon. I have shot the TAC-15 so am aware of its drawbacks. Remember, the more complicated a crossbow is the more that can go wrong with it. And if something can go wro...

Re: Rumor! (Vixen's)

Meet a Wisconsin Whitetail that I introduced to my Vixen just two weeks ago. It made a lasting impression on the critter, believe me.

Re: Rumor! (Vixen's)

Right now I don't have a crossbow to field test and review for the magazine. I can hunt with whatever bow I choose - and what might that be? Well this is what I am carrying into the woods right now and for those of you who know it’s every curve, even under a layer of custom camo you can still tell t...

Re: people asking bout slick tricks........

The Slick Trick has always been my backup broadhead. Because of what I do, I shoot all of the broadheads that I can get my hands on just to see for myself how they perform shot from a crossbow. Some perform really well, some suck. Slick Trick has always been a consistent producer, and that is exactl...

One written by the HBM European Correspondent, Geoffrey Toye dealing with the technical aspects of the bow and one by Editor, Daniel Hendricks appraising the bow from a hunter's perspective. If you are not a member of the ACF, yo...

Re: ACF will be at WI Deer and Turkey Expo

I am truly looking forward to seeing you in the flesh, Bob. Especially after all of the emails, snail mails and phone converstation we have shared. Strange how in this day and age with all that is available to us that people can get to know each other so well without ever meeting. It will be good to...
