Re: O/T My fly fishing addiction

The weight is a little on the heavy side right at 11 ounces. There were several places where I could have shaved off more weight but more liked the look of what I had. Also when its on a 10 weight rod it is balanced out pretty well. I have cast it from sun up to sun down and have been fine with it. ...

O/T My fly fishing addiction

My fly fishing addiction continues! A great hobie to occupy so much more time than just the fishing aspect. I enjoy the fly tying, the rod building, and even the reel building. I have recently completed my third reel build. Each one getting a little more complicated than the prior. This one is built...

Re: Rage fail!!!

I see from the picture that the Rage head is not fully seated into the insert could that have played a role in its failure. plus could the blades have deployed but when the arrow pulled out in reverse the blades retrac back to a sort of closed position although offset. I know the head was tight to ...

Re: Rage fail!!!

Not a counterfeit.
I use to preach fixed broad heads forever until I finally got turned onto the rage. I have killed a good number of deer with the rage and this has been my first failure. I never had a problem with my fixed Montec's it's just that 2 inch cut with the rage was appealing.

Rage fail!!!

I was hunting this morning and had a small buck step out at 30 yards. Let a bolt fly with a Rage 2 blade 2 inch cut fly. Shot looked good. Deer was slightly quartering away. I could see the arrow didn't have a pass through but the fletchings were showing up right where I wanted them to. I felt comfo...

what I've been doing lately...

I know I'm not a regular on here anymore but still check in from time to time. I still hunt and still love my Excal but the fly fishing bug continues to grow bigger and bigger with me. My latest craze is chasing striper on the fly. A friend of mine took me last summer in his boat when the stripes mo...

Re: First hunt of the season

I meant to mention I was using the Rage 2 blade 2 inch cut. I saw a prior post with some complaints with this head. I have found if you keep a fresh o ring on it holds the blades in fine. An older o ring and not so much. I have been very pleased with this head. I just pay attention to the o rings an...

First hunt of the season

I finally made it out for my first hunt this season. I saw a deer at about 100 yards walking at a steady pace and angling away from me. I grunted 3 times and that was enough to get its attention. It turned and walked straight to me. At about 10 yards it turned broadside to walk around some brush. As...

Re: Opps , first Robin-hood.

That peddled back nicely :D
I think I would have been shooting at the other side of the target with multiple targets :wink:
I can still say I have not done that "yet".

Re: SE GA STUD!!!

Nice Job on the hog and the video. I know those big hogs are alot more difficult to get out of the woods than a turkey! I swore I would never shoot one over 150 pounds again! My biggest field dressed 282lbs at Charlie Elliot WMA.
