Re: My New Bumper Sticker

That is SWEET. A hunting partner of mine makes stickers of all kinds. You know what I'm going to ask him to make.
That will go over big with all my hunting buddies.

Single Bevel Points

What bow draw weight is best to use for whitetail deer. I am thinking of using them on 40# Bear recurve. Would that be to light of weight to use the single bevel or should it be higher pull? From what I get of of what I read about them, I take it any weight is good for that size game with a single b...

Michigan Hog Hunts?

My hunting buddies are trying to find a place in Michigan to do a pig hunt this spring. Does anybody know of any game ranches there to hunt pigs?
We do not have wild pigs around here where we live.

Re: Economy PVC Deer Feeder

Any of these type of feeders work. I just cut 45 deg. angle strap to tree. I also put mineral lick buried close by .This time of year is when they get on the food & minerals. It is a great way to bring a lot of wildlife near to get pics or watch them.

Re: THE FUTURE

You are right, I to believe that more people are going back to or starting out shooting Traditional Archery.
The warbow sounds impressive, the roving marks & clout shoots would be quite a sight to watch.

Re: THE FUTURE

I know that the crossbow is a lot older than compound bow. I would say that crossbows are a way of traditional archery.. they shoot smaller arrows(bolts) & are not as effective at long shots like a compound can be (50+- yds.). I like a wood bow, wood arrows, feathers, but use crossbow 1-2 times a ye...

Re: lack of things

Has anybody heard about getting rid of lead for all ammo? I also saw somewhere that the military is going to green ammo, can that be right. Guys that make own bullets will they be affected too? Lots of questions but I don't think is the right place for subject .I should start a new post.
