    Need help with Stay Sharp Guide!

    So I finally ordered a stay sharp guide. I followed all the steps, made sure to get a bur, then tested the broadhead after running it over the first two pieces of sandpaper and it’s duller than before! Any ideas of what I’m doing wrong?

    Turkey reaping, anyone?

    I’m thinking of trying to reap a turkey this year. I have several places I can hunt where I often see turkeys on the neighboring property, but it’s hard to call a bird across a wide open field. Curious to hear your thoughts and experience with turkey reaping. Specifically, have you found it to...

    Mathews TX-5, anyone? HELP ME DECIDE!

    I've been searching high and low for a bow that has the speed I want with a short ATA and short (26.5) draw length. After watching some videos, it looks like the 2019 Mathews TX-5 fits the bill. The problem is none of the dealers in my area have one I can shoot. Have any of you shot one? What's...

    Bowhunting in the rain?

    So Wisconsin’s opener is going to be a wet one. 100% chance of rain tomorrow, and they’re calling for it to be a “steady” rain much of the day. I’m not afraid of getting wet, but I am afraid of losing a deer. So here’s my question: Should one bowhunt in the rain? Do you?

    One-stick/strap-on step hybrid climbing method, anyone?

    Has anyone ever used strap on steps as part of a one-stick climbing method? I envision it working like this: Hang the stick and climb up like normal. Once you're ready to move the stick up, instead of just free dangling from the tree or trying to hold yourself off the tree with your knees, you...

    Where do you sell firearms?

    I have three firearms that I've finally decided to part with. Two are old guns I've never shot. They're not in great shape, but they were family heirlooms of sorts that really have no sentimental value to anyone in our family. One is a Stevens and one is a Baker. The third is an H&R handi-rifle...

    Utility Knife for field dressing/skinning?

    Has anyone tried using a utility knife for field dressing or skinning deer? Seems the only downside would be the thinness of the blade. But with all the different blade shapes and the cost of replacement blades, it seems like it could be a great solution for someone working with a budget.

    Moving to southern Wisconsin... HELP!!!

    Okay so I’ve lived in the Deep South my entire life. Now, it looks like I’ll be moving to southern Wisconsin in January/February. Any of you from the great white north want to offer advice?

    Working toward next season's goals NOW.

    We all have goals for every deer season, whether we write them out or not. My goal for last year was to not die in a tree diaper. Check! Where I think we often fail is when we dream up goals but don't do much in the way of making a plan to get ourselves there. This is the perfect time of year to...
