    Hit the local woods for a couple hours today with my youngest son Eirik, and our apprentice Hungarian Viszla Odin. Eirik is toting his 30# Samick Sage, hitting everything he looks at despite his somewhat stiff 600 arras! The ol man enjoys his Scottish HEX7 hooks at about 40#. Moments were...

    Finally healthy enough to get out with my metal monster bow. Dang dry out that was for sure. I had hoped to set up my game cam over a water hole but it and a spring at another site were dry. So I took on targets of opportunity. Here are a couple of pictures of the area. 40 paces the bow...

    The ideal stumping rig . . . arrow, that is . . . Ingredients - 1.) A choice of piles; blunts or multi-pointed "Orc" points 2.) A length of Easton shaft; approx. 3/4" in length 3.) A length of heat-shrink tube; approx. 7/16" in length for fletching 4.) A long shaft insert; 2.25" in length...

    All I can say is that I wish I had more Roving Crowns from Blacky but the judos I had on hand did faintly well but I did bust one shot on a miss I know the roving crown would have saved an arrow The trick to stumping in the snow is to use a throw ball and shoot brightly fletches arrows for the...

    Hey, I recently got into archery and I enjoy it more every time I shoot. I have a question, however... Do I need a license of any kind (small game, etc...) to stump shoot? I live in Colorado and I can't seem to find the info anywhere on the web. I want to spend a lot of time doing this in the...

    So I went stumping (mushroom hunting ;) ) yesterday with Daniel here in Austria. He has built some stumping arrows (heck all his arrows are stumping TOUGH). He shot trees HARD stumps...no problem even with STEEL HEADS. I had rubber blunts on my 150 Maximas.......they just splintered. SO I...

    Well it has just been a plain long, long, long winter up here in MN this season. They are saying coldest in 35 years and will probably go down in the top 10 on record. Today went and shot at a local indoor range and I am longing for just a fun day out in the woods shooting at some stumps, leafs...

    We are headed to Colorado on a family trip and I am bringing the bows for some stumping. I live in TX and am unaccustomed to using public land. Does any body know the rules for National Park, National Forest, or Colorado SP?

    Here is a pic of my Victory 700 spine vaps, 28in long , Pulling 35 lbs. Bare shaft is min 14 inches stiff. Set button up properly. They group decent though. This was a 30 yard target. Same results over and over. Just don't seem right. 120 gr up front too. Go out to 70 meters and bare shafts will...

    So I was wondering if you guys take your 40-45# limbs out to shoot small game and stumping in the winter too? FLU FLU's....do you use the same arrows you use for the bow for these or do you just use any you already have made up? I have just switched over to my 42# limbs and I have to do a FINE...

    I have been shooting since the mid 80's and I have shot many thousands upon thousands of arrows in the woods, "stump shooting." We always called it stump shooting, but my buddies and I never actually shot stumps! We shot soft targets. Leaves and grass clumps and pine cones and such things...
