    You guys are forgetting one important aspect when it comes to getting picked off, scent. Once a deer gets a whiff, and he starts looking around for you, it's game over, regardless of how much cover...

    Hunt places where other hunters don't hunt. Not as easy as it sounds, finding these places, and getting permission to hunt them, takes effort. It also takes thinking outside the box, and not...

    I agree with trial, look at the pieces of state land to the west, one I used to hunt that was pretty good during bow season, if I remember correctly, was called Hooker mountain near Schenevus....

    Because permanent injuries, which make me feel 30 years older than I actually am, keep me from hunting as much as I'd like. Reading the stories, and seeing the pics on here, fills the gap a bit for...

    To spend money on land, pay taxes, put in hard work and money managing it, only to have guys trespassing constantly, or hunting right on the property line and shooting the deer I have passed on and...

    As bow accessories go, a rest is the one thing you don't cheap out on. If you are thinking Apache, get a Trophy Taker Xtreme FC. Don't get the cheap Trophy Taker. If you are leaning toward the cheap...

    To me work and play should be kept separate. I know a guy who loved to fish and was the best fishermen I knew. He thought it would be a good idea to quit his job to become a fishing guide, and sell...

    Every rear deploying broadhead has the exact same design flaws IMO. They are too steep a blade angle, and too big of a cutting diameter. They should simply look at the original rear deploying head,...

    I must be honest when I say that part of my anti crossbow sentiment is selfish. Here, around the NYC area, the hunting pressure is insane. I cannot remember the last time I hunted and did not see...

    See, that's where we disagree. To me a crossbow is not archery equipment. Just look at it, it has a stock, a scope, can be shot off a rest, is preloaded, it is a gun that shoots arrows. Take the same...

    I can't fly cast due to injury, therefore I can't fish in fly fishing only streams. Same exact logic, Richard.
    Little kids throw a tantrum until they get their way. Arrow gun hunters did the same,...

    Cougar, who's gonna decide who is injured or disabled enough to be allowed to use a crossbow? It's a huge can of worms that really should not be opened. The way I see it, if you can't draw a bow, you...

    Shouldn't this be on top?

    On a silly note, since this is Bowhunting.com, shouldn't the bowhunting talk forum be on top, the first one? Or maybe just below the introduction one. Always wondered why it is half way down the page...

    I had a yellow and white set on a hunting bow once and they constantly got dirty. Hope you have better luck keeping yours looking good than I did.

    What I want to know is how you managed to sell a 3 year old bow for almost what you paid for it. Usually 3 year old bows sell for less than half what they cost new. Good luck with the new rig!

    You have to practice, exactly as you will be hunting, same stand height, same clothing, and especially those steep shots in close, you need to practice bending at the waist. I'm lucky, I have a steep...

    It may sound weird, but I don't really like shooting all that much, I like hunting. I shoot so I can kill deer. I probably won't pick up my bows again until September. This time of year I'm scouting...

    I shoot a 2009 Sentinel, same as the Admiral only longer. With that said, you do not NEED a new bow, what you have now is still a great bow. Now, if you have a grand or more burning a hole in your...

    I shoot better with a slippery grip, it prevents me from torquing the bow, and helps my hand slide into the same place each time. I wear gloves when I shoot for that very reason.
