    Found a video of Ropeman Failure (unclear if it is a ropeman 1 or 2)

    In this whole discussion, I am reminded of the great quote by @Nutterbuster that resides under @Red Beard signature "Is this safe?" No. No it isn't. You're climbing a tree with a loaded weapon in a place where it's hard to get an ambulance. You should be mistrustful of the whole enchilada."...

    The funny thing is the longest shot I’ve ever taken with my 7 mag is around 100 yds. Most under 50 yds. :tearsofjoy:

    I was interested in it for the lighter recoil. My 7mm mag kicks like a mule.

    Another reminder that it can all change in one moment and hunting can be very dangerous. This is sad for him and his family. Remember to practice your safety protocols all the time...

    My wife and best friend have my shared location all the time through my iPhone. It’s a degree of accountability in my marriage and safety when hunting.

    Lighted Nocks

    I use nockturnals. I have been pleased with them. This is not an area you want to skimp and buy Chinese knock offs. It is a very important part of the process in archery. This is the thing that touches the string and will be absorbing all the energy.

    The No-Shame Thread

    I used that climber and it was nice. Not having the bar in front was awesome for bow hunting. But I had too many occasions when I couldn’t find a tree a climber would work in so I decided to go all in for the saddle. I did sell it and kinda go back and forth on that decision.

    Testing in a saddle situation would be good to see. That would be much better data than what was presented in that video. The big takeaway and something I always try to practice is don’t have large (or small) amounts of slack in your rope, especially during fall likely times (i.e. getting on...

    This is apples and oranges on that video. He is testing to Fall Factors that just won’t be reached in a saddle hunting situation. See pic below and article. We are top roped and do not get above our contact point...

    Had the leftovers for lunch. I wish I could post the video to show the tenderness and fatty/silky texture. Something magical happens to the silver skin, connective tissue and tendons. Here are some screen shots from the video.
