    As of 8 o'clock tonight all nonessential businesses have to close due to covid 19. I was surprised to see that retailers of guns and ammo are considered essential. Liquor stores too.

    Cocking device.

    A rope cocking device came with the bow. It's o.k., but I think it would be difficult to cock the bow in a tree stand. Anyone have experience with the crank type devices?

The mission was quiter but $1700 was more than I wanted to spend. The quiver mounting bracket was missing. I called...

    Flourocarbon vs. Mono.

    Do you think using flouro increases your sucess ? When flouro first hit the market it was claimed to be invisible in the water. If that was true 50 lb. test would work as well as 4 lb. test. I use mono and flouro leaders and can't say one gets more bites than the other. This is in saltwater...

    Browning trail cam

    I got some gift cards for fathers day so I used them to buy a trail camera. I bought a Browning Strike Force HD Pro and 32 g sd card from Basspro. Pretty easy set up. I put it on a tree facing my driveway and it's working o.k. Today I ordered the Bone view card reader directly from Bone View...

    S.d. card reader.

    Hornady Super Performance Ammo

    I'm not a big fan of Hornaday , but I was given a partial box (16 rounds) of super performance 200 gr. 35 Whelen ammo. I tried it out today. From the bench at 100 yards my first 2 shots were touching ,on center but about 2 " low. I adjusted the scope up 8 clicks , the 3 rd. shot was dead center...

    Winchester Longbeard XR 2

    Got out last friday for the first time this season. I've been using 3" Federal Premium 2 oz. #5's for a long time but it seems like they aren't available anymore. I picked up a box of XR 1 3/4 oz. 5's. Shot 2 toms , 35 and 40 yard shots, the XR's really put the smackdown on them.

    Ethics scenario

    This scenario actually happened a few years ago. I was in a stand about 20' off the ground. The tree was on a knoll , in total I was probably 35' above the ground in front of me. Four does came through moving from left to right. They were just picking their way along. I waited to see if a buck...

    Leupold Q.D. bases.

    I had a bad experience yesterday. I have the quick detachable base on my 7600. I missed 2 shots at a coyote yesterday morning, he was moving pretty fast through some brush so I didn't think to much of it. About 45 minutes later I caught some movement out at about 100 yards, I could see enough to...
