    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 used to give deer I couldn't use to the local hunters for the hungry program. That is until I found out most of the venison donated in my area ends up in the bellies of illegal immigrants. Now I...

    If mechanicals are so bad, how is it that I, and several friends and family members, have recovered over 99% of the deer we have shot with mechanical heads, including several bad hits? I'm talking...

    Sorry guys, but common sense tells me that the above statement is false. If it were safe after it dried, it would not kill ticks on contact, but it does. Therefore, even when dry the stuff is clearly...

    I've killed more deer with XX75 2117's than all the other arrows I've ever used, combined. As soon as I break all my Gold Tip's for my 60lb setup I'm going back to the 2117's. I still use 2018's with...

    Up in the tree, surrounded by leaves, great cover, overlooking a great bottleneck between two ponds, a place that has given me several mature bucks over the years, BUT. Pitch dark, I'll be hoping no...

    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.

    Here comes the hate, but this is exactly why I shoot mechanical heads. If I tune my bow reasonably well, and make sure my paper tune is good, my mechanical heads always hit spot on with my field...

    Depends on area. Where I hunt in the suburbs there are constantly people in the deer woods, so it means absolutely nothing to the deer. Dogs are a completely different story, deer beat it right out...

    I'm certainly not knocking guys for buying a new bow every year. If that's what floats their boat, more power to them. I can afford to buy 10 new bows a year if I wanted, but truthfully I don't find...

    Archery has to be the most "gear head" sport there is. Seems if you don't have the latest greatest bow you are a loser. Bowtech, Mathews, Hoyt, PSE, they have all been around a while, so it just...

    I prefer not to knock on doors, a stranger knocking at the door is a bit of an invasion of privacy. I wait until they are outside, then I introduce myself as a wildlife photographer. I bring a trail...

    Deer hunting just over 30 years, then gave up the gun and went exclusively to bowhunting just under 30 years ago. I'm starting to burn out and lose interest though. Battling poachers, intense hunting...

    Exactly why I choose, and clear, stand sights during winter. Then I just touch the lanes up in late summer. What seemed like a tree with good cover in summer can prove to be painfully inadequate when...

    In your opinion it's not a real thing? Probably because you've never had it. Be thankful for that because it is a very real thing and it sucks!

    That is a form of target panic. Force yourself to count to 5 while aiming, with the pin floating on the spot, before you release your shot.
