Re: Best Stock Excal Ever?

It's hard to argue that the old Exomax was a winner. To take it a step further, mine is still basically stock and shooting stock Firebolts out of it other than refletching them with helical Blazers. I really love my Micro 340TD, but if I only had to pick one it would probably have to be the Matrix 3...

Re: My buck luck continues

Love that wide rack. Congrats! They're moving a lot here, but with no leaves they seem to be keeping their distance from anywhere a hunter would venture except after dark.

Re: On Why We Always Should Shoot In A Safe Direction...

Congrats on the two does. The first lumenok I ever fired lit a somewhat similar trajectory. My arrow passed through a doe about about 40 yards and my shot was a bit high. As the arrow exited I last saw it traveling at about a five degree incline further into the woods where I hunt. I was shooting fr...

Re: Albino

I'm guessing the only place an albino buck would get that big is somewhere it is illegal to shoot. Most places, that's a nice legal buck.

Re: My Debut

No luck with the link for me.

Good luck videoing your hunt. It's a lot harder than you'd think. The deer are horrible at following the script. Without a bait pile or food source, there is frequently just not enough time with everything else going on.

Re: Just wondering

I wouldn't call it practice as much as confirming the setup. I've noticed after a dozen trips to the woods, things aren't always as precise as they were beforehand. All travel is not equal. All it takes is a couple shots with each bow to confirm everything is still spot on, and make minor correction...

Re: day with grandpa

They're the best way to start out a new hunter as far as I'm concerned. You can learn a whole lot about hunting by chasing bushytails. I still recall my first squirrel hunt, so these memories will last forever. Awesome stuff.

New WV archery typical record?

It's the opposite end of the state from me, but there are four very mountainous counties in southern WV that are archery only. They haven't allowed gun hunting there in decades. Every year there are some nice bucks taken from that area by those willing to hunt some tough terrain. https://wvmetronews...

Re: The rut is close

This morning about 30 minutes after sunrise, I has a doe come bounding through in a nearby thicket with a buck about 20 yards behind not letting her get out of his sight. They ran out of view before they stopped. I hit my grunt call and a different buck responded to the call and came right under my ...

OT: Smokepole success

My honey hole has been a sour patch this season due to lack of acorns. Prior to this morning I had been out sixteen times and only seen a deer on three hunts. I've only seen eight deer all season and four of those were yesterday around 4pm while on my last archery hunt of the season. Unfortunately t...
