    In my younger days, I hunted with a compound and almost always from 16+ feet up a tree. They never saw me that high. Loved the view, being able to see deer coming in and watching the squirrels in the distance. Occasionally, I'd set-up in a pop-up tent blind with windows. Effective. I shot a...

    I’ve been thinking about building some ground blinds where I hunt. A few spots have very sandy clay which is easy to dig. My idea is to dig a hole about 3.5 feet deep, then build up about two feet of cover on each side. What do y’all think of this idea? It would leave less of my body exposed to...

Had action whole couple hours was there. About, 1815 a doe came nosing her way side sloping the ridge. She was very alert not feeding...

    Went to the surgeon and the ground hog saw his shadow. My broken femur is healing well but I will have to stay on crutches for at least six more weeks. I can at least put weight on my leg and start to do walking therapy. This is really messing with the timing of my vacation and April tournament...

    I have been hunting some public land and would like to try a ground blind for several reasons. I am looking at making my own ghost blind but I would like to know how those that do hunt from a ground blind sit. I would prefer to shoot kneeling but how can anyone comfortably kneel for hours...

    You know all. The form practice you do? works great in competition. It does not work so well from a ground blind. If you shoot from a stool when hunting I'll bet your never get to your draw length. For one thing you tend to stay hunched over trying to hide your profile. This also puts your...

    In the past I've always been the kind to use a heavier draw weight. normally in the 55 to 60 pound range I just recently purchased a tradtech titan II with blackmax extremes. It maxes out at #45. I was concerned that It wouldent be sufficient for hunting. But after some testing with different...

    My 11 year old and I were stalking hope tonight. We weren't disappointed even though we didn't get a deer...

    One of the greatest mistakes in practicing, made by many archers (including myself) is to shoot at a target too low. How often have we watched ourselves/form in the mirror only to go outside and throw it all off by lowering the bow arm to the target, thus reducing the draw length, then spend...

    Trying to get ideas for light and very portable ground blinds. Hunting down south in SUNNY Fla has its drawbacks. Hotter than hell right now. Lugged in my climber(summit viper at 20lbs) plus pack full of water and accessories, easily packing in 40+lbs. Which in this heat=SUCKS! After scouting...

    Been building a lot to get caught up. Too hot in the daytime, 111 here today, work at night. I have several all going on right now at the same time. One in particular is a vintage 16 inch Hoyt. Has anyone here ever attempted to convert one of these to ILF? I have this one close to being done but...
