    Funny coincidence because I am 51, and just last year started losing a bit of interest in bowhunting. For me injuries that just won't heal are part of it. Laziness is part of it too, bowhunting can...

    IMO it is the inexperienced bowhunter, with the untuned bow, who turns to mechanicals because fixed heads won't fly for them. Those are the guys with the horror stories and the guys who blame the...

    Yes, we all have opinions, but it irks me when people think their opinion is more valid than the opinion of others, it is the very definition of the word opinionated. How did I get sucked into this...

    How dare you make your own decisions! Can't you read, mechanical heads are no good, because the opinionated ones say so. The fact that many, many hunters have zero issues with mechanical heads is...

    Some I remember, others that were not among my biggest, I just cannot recall the details. I guess it ain't a bad thing that I've shot so many bucks that I can't remember them all, but also, getting...

    Last several years I started to do the same thing, but I do it for ME. I have racks on my wall that I shot years ago, and I don't remember where, when, or any of the details of the hunt. Would be so...

    What kills me is that for each inch of brace height you reduce a bow, you pick up less than 10fps. Take the Halon for instance, the Halon 5 is shooting 353, while the Halon 7 with 2" more brace...

    Hunting is like real estate, Location, Location, Location! Can't kill a 150" deer if it doesn't exist, no matter how good you are.

    Often archery equipment is insanely overpriced, because most guys think the more they spend, the better. When I look through archery catalogs I don't know whether to chuckle, or cry, that some guys...
