    I'm starting to get pumped, might be the cool weather we've had this week, gives that faint sense of fall coming.

    I knoooww. It’s hard not to get excited when there is a temp drop like that. I feel a lot better in general when I don’t sweat through my shirt four times in one day.

    I am so ready for some live from the stand action! Season is a month away. Although I will not be out there much early season due to 98 degree temps. I am thinking of doing a last min upgrade to my sight which is the trophy ridge 5 pin react sight that is not doing so well.

    I have the same sight and love it. What’s going on with yours?

    I passed both of these bucks last year to let them get another year older. Hopefully that pays off and I get an opportunity at one of them. IMG_1478.jpg IMG_1480.jpg IMG_1484.jpg IMG_1485.jpg

    The screws to make adjustments will not spin. They look stripped which is weird considering I rarely need to make any adjustments with that sight. I can go from year to year and not have to make adjustments. Now it does not want to cooperate. I emailed trophy ridge and they want me to send it in but now is not the time for me to be sending it to them to have for a month or more.

    Have you tried using a hammer? If so, have you tried using a bigger hammer?

    had a couple arrows that needed to be reflected.
    i have 4 kids so they each got to pick a color, keep an eye out for one of these on the scoring thread once rut comes

    Anybody else checked out the last couple pages of the sign up. It is hilarious and sad all at the same time. The first 150 of so did pretty well aside from a few outliers, but from 150 onward it’s a shitshow. Copy and paste the list with your screen name at the bottom - it’s literally one line of instructions. At least now we know who all needed to hire a tutor to pass their hunters safety class.

    Well, I just looked at last years sign up thread. and at this time last year we had 172 signed up. We had 220 in the contest last year, so we are on track to break 200 again.
