    Alternative to Tethrd HYS Strap?

    I did the exact same thing. Added a hero clip for my bow and some s biners for backpack, spurs, and whatever else I need to hang up. Packs up small and works great.

    LH Garmin Xero A1i

    Left-handed Garmin Xero A1i in excellent condition. The electronic portion of the sight was replaced by Garmin a couple of months ago because I was having problems with it. (Turns out it was user error.) Also includes some extra screws as they use aluminum to lower weight, but they can strip...

    Wife Season

    Nothing's better when it's good, and nothing's worse when it goes wrong. That said, it's not 50/50..... It's 100/100 (I learned that from my wife, lol) Both parties have to be all-in for a marriage to work. And part of that is wife season....

    Crossbow recommendation?

    I agree completely. I bought 2 centerpoint snipers for my 2 older kids to use about 3-4 years ago when they weren't big enough to consistenly shoot a compound accurately. I upgraded the arrows to some .001 Black Eagles that I found on sale, and that made them tack drivers. Bullseye all day...

    Why ain't he dead? (Archers only)

    Got another one... About 25 feet up in a homemade 2x2 platform with my daughter. I got her into saddle-hunting this year, so she wanted to do a hunt together. Couple of does start coming down the trail at my 3 o'clock. She wants me to shoot one, so she can video it on her phone. The lead...

    Why ain't he dead? (Archers only)

    ~25 years of bow hunting experience About 20 feet up in a group of 3-4 smallish trees. Heard a buck grunt across the opening from me (80ish yards away). Look up and mature buck is standing in the edge, and starts slowly moving from my left to right. Lose him in the woods until he pops out...

    The No-Shame Thread

    Took my bow to the shop to get new strings put on this year. Got it home and it was a tack driver. I promptly cranked the limb bolts down and started trying to bareshaft tune my arrows “ranch fairy” style. Even moved the rest a little. Now this thing shoots like hot dog crap. Point of impact...

    The No-Shame Thread

    This 1000%. It’s not a successful hunt unless I kill at least one armadillo. I even have a special arrow in my quiver for that purpose only...

    Camouflaging non-hunting clothes

    I had a neighbor several years ago that swore by regular ole rattle can spray paint.... Logically, seems like it would break up your outline if done right, and that stuff seems to stick pretty well to any article of clothing I've ever gotten it on.

    Sharpening broadheads

    Can't watch the video at work, but I've used the RADA sharpener this year, and I've put the same head through 2 deer (and into the dirt once). Works great and it's fast, cheap, and easy.
