    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.

    Westchester County NY here, and for me it has been DEAD. Well over 100hrs on stand and have only seen one fawn. Brutal! Everyone wants a spot in Westchester, "trophy bucks behind every tree". Well...

    My favorite saying is "people suck". You have to go through like 20 people who suck before you find one truly good person. To answer the question presented in the first post, it is jealousy and...

    You guys need your man cards pulled. "Ewww, that bow has a harsh draw cycle". "It's too hard for me to pull". Geez Louise man, stop the whining and draw the bow already!

    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...
