    How far of shots are you taking at deer? I will probably be deer hunting with traditional gear this year (45lbs 29”draw, 150grn Magnus Stinger two blade, 600 full length) and right now I’m good to 20 yards. I’m also trying to figure out what to do about a hunting quiver. Do the have removable...

    So say its hunting season, im' out up in my tree stand hunting, with my recurve bow. Then all of a sudden a huge buck comes out through the trail 15 yards away. Here's the question, what's the right thing to do!! Do I go back to full draw aim and release before he can see what's up, or do I...

    "Urban Mule Deer" is an odd concept for those of us who love to hunt them in high and wild places. But.... Yesterday I saw deer tracks in the snow inside the fence around Ellensburg's trash collection site. Very odd, since the collection site is about a mile from the edge of town. When I...

    So i am looking to everyone here to see if anyone has any experience hunting deer on the road system in kodiak? I go up there every few years to fish but this time i have carved out half the trip to deer hunt with my recurve. Any advice or tips on hunting the island would be welcome. Any input...

    I found a great deal on a JK Traditions Kanati longbow. Hard to pass down. The problem is that I’m a bit concerned about the draw weight being only 44# at 28”. My draw length is around 29.5”. My question is, how much draw weight would one usually gain with a 29.5” draw over the 28”? Also how...

    I'm headed to TX in April for a conference and have the opportunity to piggyback a week of vacation on it. I'd like to take a poke or two at an Axis buck. Any outfitter recommendations I can contact?

    Come on now tell me some straight up opinions on that light of weight. In the last year or so I have been bouncing back and forth from 60# and down to 40plus. I enjoy the light weight right now. I do enjoy the releases I get from heavier weight bows though. So, if your going to encourage me...

    Oct 1980, I was 18. This was back when Reagan was first elected president! I borrowed what I thought was Bear bow from a buddy's brother along with 2 arrows that I carried because I had no quiver. I sat in the crotch of a tree when 2 doe fawns came by I shot the lead one in the heart at 10...

    Hey guys, I hunt my small 2.5 acre neighborhood tract which funnels to a larger tract and field. In the late season when the foliage drops, I'm pretty exposed. I know I'm within the law to hunt here but would like to plant some things to give me some more cover from neighbors. Any idea? I'm...

    in todays "gotta succeed NOW!" society, i am curious. how many years did you spend in the pursuit of your first deer, whether by rifle, bow, or Buick, LOL! i'll go first so as to eliminate any possible embarrassment for those not immediately successful. i hunted from the age of 9 using a single...

    Well, it finally happened after 8 years of hunting, I got my first deer. What I thought was a small doe ended up being a button buck. A friend from work took me to his hunting spot where he had set up a stand for me, assuring me I would have a shot, well, I did. A good blood trail lead me to...

    Took this last week. Its not much but it's fun watching a bucks reaction even if he's a little shaver. I like the way he tries to see if his is bigger than the decoys!

    I drew a 2nd deer tag here in the great state of Washington, a Mule deer doe in a specific GMU, since I had also drawn a Multi Season tag, this doe tag was for our Modern Firearm season. (We get to hunt with any legal weapon tho, so I chose my recurve...) Day one I hiked just over 9 miles, up...

    I often find myself switching between a broadhead arrow to a judo arrow and then back while deer hunting. Just today I was creeping up on a deer that then moved off and then a squirrel presented itself for a shot. It is a slow transition to put the broadhead away and get the judo out. By that...
