    I do the opposite, I practice and shoot target and 3D with Gold Tip Pro Hunters, then hunt with the cheap Gold Tip Expedition Hunters. Why break a $10 arrow on a deer, when there's a $4 arrow that...

    You have to talk with the surrounding landowners first as they likely know the locals because they are locals themselves. Let them know your wishes to keep people out. They probably are not going to...

    I am nearsighted, so when I shot without glasses my pins were nice and clear because they were close, and the distant target was all blurry. Because of this I tended to pay too much attention to my...

    Assuming we are talking bow deer only, I am at just under 700" for my best 6 bucks. To you mid west guys that probably sounds lame, but for around here, where deer are under fed, and over hunted,...

    Sure, ideally a 1-1 buck to doe ratio is ideal, IF it is that way over a large area, say county wide. What we are talking about here is a guy with 300 acres. If he shoots too many does on his land,...

    I didn't read all of this thread, but some stuff jumps to mind.
    One, lay off the does. Shooting too many does is bad, real bad, for an area. Bucks are just like single men, if there is a place a...

    I used to drive myself nuts trying to broadhead tune. No more of that crap for me. I couldn't care less if my broadheads are grouping together with field tips, because it just doesn't matter. What...

    Great buck and cute kids! I love when kids know what meat actually is, and all the steps that need to happen before it ends up wrapped in a foam tray! It's scary that some kids, and even some adults,...

    Personally I don't like them, to me they look like a side of beef with the head still attached. To each his own though.

    I did it just last night, I was freezing and it was pretty dark so I simply started talking to myself, quietly at first and then louder. The deer didn't spook, they just walked off.

    That looks like awfully thin walled tubing that failed. There's no excuse for using such flimsy material, what, so the stand is a few ounces lighter? Just stupid!

    I don't see any reason to bother, so no, I never have. Same reasoning why I don't take pics of fish before I release them. I fish and hunt for my enjoyment, not for bragging rights.
