    Oooooooo, I've been eyeing some new sights latley. I have the stock PSE sight. Can't decide what to get for a new one.

    Side note, weather is calling for light rain until about 11am Saturday. I'll still be heading out, super pumped.

    Looking at them now, never shot a single pin, been used to my 3 pin. I did like that it seems more like a rifle sight. I'm used to shooting those.

    Been looking at the IQ 3/5 pin sights, I'll have to find someone with a single pin to see how I'd like them.

    Honestly stay away from the IQ it is a real pain to try to set up and if you are off just a bit with that dot alignment your shoots are way off

    Live from the blind!!!!! Well it's a light rain, supposed to be over in about 30 min. My schmuck of a guy decide to set up 100 yards across a creek near another blind. Two different properties. I'm keeping my calls in the pack and make contact with them when they leave and apologoze. I have permission for this land, they own the land they are on. Figure better to be a good neighbor. Never know when I'll have to track a deer over there.
    Still have my decoys out, if one comes to my decoys I'm putting it down. I'll set up in the top frills next time away from them. Crapy feeling hearing a zipper in the dead of morning.
    Wife said don't come home till I have bird because I'm cranky when I go home empty handed. Yes ma'am.
    Here's a pic of Helen and Henry on their date.
